Kettles are an integral part of the kitchen. Most families use the kettle multiple times in a day, which means that it is important that you buy a good quality, durable, and functional model. Choose the model you want according to the capacity of the kettle, its design, and even the materials that it is made from. Don't overlook the style of heating used to boil the water. This is especially important if you have an induction hob and wish to use a traditional stove top kettle.

Founded in 1925, Le Creuset started by manufacturing cast iron pots, which they still manufacture and sell today. However, in the nearly 100 years since their formation, they have expanded to increase the range of products that they offer. As well as cast iron pots, Le Creuset sell popular lines of cookware, diningware, and kitchen accessories. They offer a traditional style, provide functional benefits, and they can really bring a kitchen to life thanks to the different designs and colours that are available.
Le Creuset stove top kettles are made from enamelled steel. Steel is chosen because it retains heat and is tough and durable, and the enamelling process further improves the quality and durability of the product. All the parts used in Le Creuset kettles are chosen for their durability and strength. With some simple maintenance, you can enjoy many happy years of kettle usage.
Every Le Creuset kettle comes with a 5-year guarantee, showing the quality of these traditional kettle designs.
Great Looks And Good Design
Le Creuset has been going for nearly 100 years and this shows in the quality of their kettles. The traditional looking design is perfect for the kitchen. This doesn't mean that you are limited in design choices. As well as being able to choose from a range of models, like the Le Creuset Zen kettle or the Le Creuset Kone kettle. Each of the lines also come in many different colours, which means that you can choose a kettle to match the design of your kitchen, to match the rest of your kitchenware and bakeware items, or just because you like a specific colour.
As well as the traditional looking design, many buyers also appreciate the traditional whistle. The whistle is functional, sounding when the water boils, but it also adds a unique design twist to the kettle spout.
Functional And Useful
The kettle is an integral part in many peoples' lives, but one that is often overlooked. A kettle from Le Creuset is sturdy, the steel heats quickly, and the enamelled coating ensures a more even and uniform heating of the water.
Different Le Creuset kettle designs come in different sizes. Standard 1.6l models, like the Krone are perfect for small families or groups, while the larger 2.1l design of the Traditional kettle is also useful when cooking or when making drinks for larger groups of people.
Healthy And Safe Materials
Le Creuset made a name by manufacturing cast iron cookware and pots. However, cast iron that has not been treated can erode and may leave the water tasting funny when used in kettle design. By adding an enamel layer to the kettle, it prevents this from happening. While enamelled steel does take a little longer to heat up, it heats more uniformly and retains heat for longer too.
Care And Use
When you first get your Le Creuset kettle, rinse it out with hot water. Fill it and boil the water, before discarding this kettle of water.
You should never heat an empty kettle and don't fill your new kettle over the maximum level line. You should also ensure that the lid is closed firmly and that the kettle bottom matches the size profile of the hob on which it will be heated. Most of these usage tips are the same as you would experience with other kettles, and they will help ensure a longer life from your kettle.
Induction Hobs And Le Creuset Kettles
A Le Creuset stove top kettle has no electric parts, and is made from tough enamelled steel. This means that there are fewer parts that can break or become damaged, and it also means that the kettle itself is tougher and more durable than electric kettles, which are often made from plastic.
Another benefit of a kettle from Le Creuset is that they can be used on virtually any heat source. They work on electric and gas hobs, can be used on range cookers and Aga cookers, and they are also compatible with induction hobs.
What Are Le Creuset Kettles Made Of?
Le Creuset kettles are made from an enamelled stainless steel. This offers the strength, durability, and robust qualities of stainless steel, and combines this with the health and safety and design benefits of an enamel coating. It also means that Le Creuset whistling kettles can also be used on induction hobs.
How To Clean Le Creuset Kettle
To prevent a build up of limescale, you should fully empty the kettle after each use and not reboil water that is left in there. You can also use a gentle descaler if needed. Do not use abrasive cleaners, but a gentle and simple clean will help your kettle looking and operating smoothly and efficiently.
