Primula’s brilliant Soft Grip tea kettle will be a showpiece in your kitchen. The brushed stainless steel design with a heat-resistant black lid and matching soft grip handle is dramatically accented beside the shiny silver spout. It holds 3 qts of water- large enough to hold water for 12 cups of tea. Each Soft Grip Whistling Tea Kettle is constructed of with an encapsulated bottom to heat quickly and evenly. Primula’s specially designed phenolic soft grip handle provides a firm stay-cool grip. Another special feature is the flip up spout which allows for safe handling and even pouring. Even the lid was carefully constructed, with a heat-resistant looped handle for easy removal to sit atop a wide opening for easy fill and cleaning. A soft pleasant whistle is emitted when water reaches a boil.
