The Bonavita stovetop tea kettle is made of stainless steel, and has a brushed finish. As a high quality kettle, it has a gooseneck spout, which gives excellent pouring control. You will not inadvertently splash boiling water on the table when using this spout to fill several teacups.
In addition to giving you better control and safety for brewing tea, it allows you to carefully do preinfusion of grounds for superior drip coffee. Note however, that if using it to boil water in on the stove, you shouldn't leave it unattended. The spout that allows outstanding pour control will gush water under high pressure.
The Bonavita stovetop kettle has a heat-resistant easy-grip handle, which allows you to take it off the stove and pour boiling water safely. It's ideal for making tea, and for doing manual pourover brewing of coffee.
In addition, the Bonavita stovetop tea kettle is dishwasher safe.
