Since you have gas, Janet, a gas stove, Janet, in spite of the fact that I L.O.V.E. my OXO kettle, I think you could not go wrong with a Revere. If I had a stove top surface that would have accommodated the bottom of the kettle so that the entire surface had been in contact with the glass, I would not have moved it along to our daughter's home.

expat, I was the one who recommended Harney's. In spite of a British sounding name, the company is U.S. based. They started in the basement of John and Elise Harney's home in Salisbury, CT, but the company now has a large processing and shipping plant just over the border in Millerton, NY. John passed away a couple years ago, but his sons and their families worked with their dad and have continued the tradition. They do ship everywhere, so you might want to try an order when they have a deal. Also, when you are back home, try checking some of the stores that carry a wide variety of tea brands, especially tea shops. Many carry tins of Harney Tea.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I went shopping this weekend to try out new teakettles and came home empty handed. Still looking. Some were poorly balanced, others that that crimped seam around the base (that leaks on my current teapot) others were too small. My current pot is 2.5 quarts and I don't want to go much smaller. I looked at a chantal enamel kettle that doesn't have that crimp but it's 1.8 quarts - too small, imo.

Others I saw had handles that might melt if the burner flame were turned up too high (could happen) - a number of these handles are mounted part way down the side of the kettle...

Still hunting - keep the suggestions coming...

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!
