Teapots and kettles arguably tend to fall into the utilitarian category when it comes to the realm of kitchen appliances. Aside from the fact that it’s an item one would be hard-pressed to use year-round, most of us tend to not give it much thought. And to be quite frank, with the idea that the sole purpose of a kettle is to boil water, why give aesthetics much thought? We’re here to defunct said misconception with 10 visually-inclined options, which not only include multiple elements of functionality but, are durable enough to stand the test of time. Ahead, the style-focused teapots and kettles your kitchen is definitely missing.
