Whistling kettles, also known as tea kettles, are small kitchen appliances used for boiling water to make hot beverages such as coffee and tea. These kettles are often made from stainless steel or copper and have a spout at the top to pour out the boiling liquid. A unique feature of these kettles is that once the water reaches boiling level, they emit a whistling sound.
Induction kettles, or stovetop kettles, are designed specifically for use on induction cooktops. These kettles are made with a magnetic base that allows them to generate heat when placed on an induction stove. The heat is produced directly in the base of the kettle through electromagnetic induction, which rapidly heats the water inside. Induction kettles are known for their quick heating ability and energy efficiency. Whistling kettles, despite their traditional appearance and features, are often induction-safe!
What is an induction kettle?
An induction kettle is simply a kettle that is suited for induction! At Cookinglife, they are synonymous with whistling kettles, as they are not powered by electricity (i.e., plugged into a socket) like the other kettles in our kitchen appliance range. These kettles can be operated on the stovetop, including induction and gas tops. They are highly adapted to modern functionality and ease of use - even with their traditional appearance. Discover in our range of induction kettles notable brands such as Alessi, Le Creuset, BK, and Gefu. From chrome-hued steel to the brightest of colours, you are sure to find an induction kettle at Cookinglife that suits your taste.
Whistling kettle stainless steel
Stainless steel is an ideal material to use for a whistling kettle due to its durability, ease of cleaning, and corrosion resistance. The metal is made from a combination of chromium and nickel, which makes it extremely robust and able to withstand high temperatures and pressure. Additionally, stainless steel is non-toxic and does not emit any fumes or vapours that could potentially affect the taste of your hot beverage. At Cookinglife, you will find various stainless steel kettles from Alessi. Discover fun and quirky designs to make your kitchen and tea-making come to life.

Why is my kettle whistling?
A kettle whistles when the water inside has reached boiling point. The boiling water produces steam which is forced through a small hole at the top of the kettle. This creates vibrations in the air, resulting in a distinctive whistle. The type of whistle emitted can depend on the type of kettle. At Cookinglife, all of our kettles from both Alessi and Le Creuset are designed to emit the perfect whistle. After no time, you can enjoy a delicious cup of tea!
