Many women love the color pink! It's in their wardrobes, their home interior design, and sometimes, even in the car they drive. Recently, there have been a number of pink tea kettles introduced and it's causing quite a ripple of excitement through what could be a rather mundane shopping task.
The Difference between Tea Kettles and Teapots
Before you decide which one is right for you, it's best to know the difference between a tea kettle and teapot. A teapot is used to brew tea and other beverages in. The tea leaves go into the pot with the hot water. They can be made from a number of different materials, but glass and ceramics are most common. A tea kettle is used to heat water. The designs and styles can really vary and you can find them with or without a whistle. If you've ever had a really annoying, loud whistling variety, you may want to choose one that has a removable whistle. These can be very handy if you want to use it in the middle of night when others are sleeping.
Finding the Pink Model for Your Home
No matter what shade you're looking for, it's available. The designs vary, as well. You can choose from a stovetop model or an electric model. The latter has become quite popular today; however, many refuse to use anything but one that heats on the stove.
You'll need to consider the type of stove you have before you purchase a new pink model. Some are not designed to be used with convection stove tops and this type of stove can actually ruin the bottom of the kettle. Make sure the one you purchase can safely be used with your stove.
Le Crueset has one of the most popular pink models today. It's very chic and sophisticated, but also very functional. There are several brands today that simply do not pour as well as one would like. If the water splashes out or runs down the side, it could end up causing serious burns. Other popular brands include Chef's Choice, Cuisinart, and even some of the celebrity cooks, such as Rachel Ray and Paula Deen.
You'll love the newest styles available for your new pink tea kettle and most will not only look fantastic, but function wonderfully as well. Take a few moments and see which brand and designs are just perfect for your kitchen.
