Despite the fact that it refuses to snow, last time I checked it was still winter. Nothing is better on a cold winter day than a good hot drink, and I can't think of a better looking kettle to heat some water than this Tetsubin Kettle by Ikenaga Iron Works. Sure, it's not cheap at all. In fact, it's quite expensive. But honestly how many good years of use could you get out of a cast iron kettle. Your grandchildren's kids will thank you.
