Description:
A kettle, sometimes called a tea kettle or teakettle, is a small kitchen appliance used for boiling water. Kettles can be heated either by placing on a stove, or by their own electric heating element.

Stovetop kettles

A stovetop kettle is a roughly pitcher shaped metal vessel used to heat water on a stovetop or hob. Kettles usually have a handle on top, a spout, and a lid. Sometimes stove-mounted kettles also have a steam whistle that indicates when the water has reached boiling point.

Electric kettles



Electric kettles are normally constructed of durable plastic or steel (with a plastic handle) and powered by mains electricity. In modern designs, once the water has reached boiling, the kettle automatically deactivates to prevent the water boiling away and damaging the heating element.

History

The word kettle originates from Latin catillus, which in various contexts is translated as bowl, deep dish, or funnel. A kettle is probably the most ancient kind of metal cooking utensil. Common materials were wrought iron and pressed steel plate.
