Joyce Chen 2-Qt. Ceramic Tea Kettle
Product works well for making tea without infusing any harmful chemicals
One minor issue -- the lid doesn't have a "tongue" on the inside rim to
keep it in place when you pour, so you have to hold the lid in place.

Second time around and still a perfect tea kettle.
After ten years, I destroyed my first Chen ceramic kettle when I forgot I had turned on the stove. It cracked in half when I tried to move it! Ordered another one right away because it had served me so well. Attractive, durable, and doesn't collect thick mineral layer on the inside like a metal kettle.

We bought this to heat up water on our wood stove, since it supposedly could take the heat. Its worked well so far. I would say its pretty fragile, so it needs to be handled with care. But it endures some heat. And its pretty.

especially great for green tea fanatics
I love that I can stick a meat thermometer in the top and keep track of precise water temps. This is crucial for fine green teas as they taste best anywhere from 140 to 180 degrees F depending on the tea and you do not want to boil the water and let it cool as the boiled out water also detracts from the flavor. Glass doesn't hold the heat as well, metals are out of the question, electronics are fine for the office but I'm at home, and this is easy to clean.
