OXO Good Grips Classic Tea Kettle

Anyone own this kettle? It is induction capable. Gets good Amazon reviews. I am interested if you have this, and if you like it.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I have it and loved it for years until I decided to switch to the Cuisinart electric kettle. I am really enjoying how much more quickly the electric kettle boils water (I drink about 5 cups of tea a day). I think the oxo is the best stainless steel stovetop kettle, but I highly recommend an electric kettle instead.

      How long does the Cuisinart take to prep the water vs. the Oxo? With Sue's induction range, it might be a wash, unless the electric is just lightning speed.

        Exactly. I have a Russell Hobbes electric kettle that boils pretty quickly, but not as quickly as water heated on "blast" on the induction cook top. I put my electric away, but I'd like a nice kettle to use on my cook top, to produce quick boiling water for tea.

        Thanks for the rec on the OXO kettle!

    2. Now you all have me wanting an induction burner. I timed my electric kettle this morning (boil/black tea setting for 1.0L of water) and it took nearly 4 min to boil. I do like that the water stays hot enough for a second cup of tea, but "lightening speed" on the induction is most impressive :-). I don't think you can go wrong with the OXO.

        I can see why you like the electric kettle, kimbers. 4 minutes is pretty fast for a boil, especially compared to electric and gas cooktops. Plus, as you noted, there's no need to move the thing. I think that factor that would sway me, if I ever needed a teakettle.

          Thanks for the rec. I appreciate your sharing.
