Guess I'll have to stick with the microwave for my tea. Tea Kettle looks perfect and should last a very long time.
Does this Half Kettle have a brass handle ? Very hard to see in the picture. Mine is not brass...looks like an aluminum alloy of some type. The color has a soft brown sheen after one season on the wood insert. I have two of these, both seem to grow this weird white rock like solid on the inside of the container... I'm wondering what it is? hope its non-toxic Not to worry at all - it's just a little lime/calcium build-up. Basically, your water has some trace minerals that are left behind after the water has evaporated. Just use some basic, generic vinegar to clean it up easily. It will fizz for a bit and dissolve the build-up. I hope that this helps! Lauren of Aiden's Hearth What are the dimensions? I am especially interested in the width. none Can this be used on a gas stove? It is designed to fit on a fireplace insert for added humidity. I would be cautious using it in any other capacity. Can you drink from it As specified in the Product Description, this is not designed or safe to drink from.I hope that this helps, but if you have any further questions - don't hesitate to ask.Lauren of Aiden's Hearth
