    I Love This Tea Kettle, And I Don't Care Who Knows

    This one is my favorite part of my whole small kitchen.

    Listen, I know I am American trash, but I'm just going to say it: stovetop kettles are way better than electric ones.

    I know the benefits of electric kettles: they're fast, get your water to the exact temperature you need, and are favored in the UK, which I guess knows a thing about making tea (aka not throwing it into a harbor).

    But!!! Stovetop ones also have their advantages, and my home doesn't feel complete without one — and that includes this one, which I just ditched my old metal behemoth for.

    I have a small kitchen, so a stovetop kettle is space-efficient because I can store it right on the stove instead of on the counter or in cabinets. Not only that, the process of heating up water the old fashioned way is incredibly therapeutic for me. It's how I did it growing up, and each night, when I boil water for my Sleepytime tea, I find comfort in going through the motions of filling the pot and hearing it boil and whistle.

    And this stovetop kettle, which is from the new Macy's x Goodful collection, is way more attractive than any electric one will ever be. The black-wood-metal combo is so sleek, and just looking at it on my stove makes me almost appreciate my teeny tiny kitchen.

    This kitchen of mine is so small that it can only accommodate a mini fridge, so...yeah, it's hard to love sometimes. But who among us isn't?!

    The faux wood handle is designed to stay cool, which means you don't have to worry about burning your hand as you pour a nice hot one with the boys.

    That spout? It opens reeeeal nice, thanks to the little trigger, and when it's shut, it keeps all of the liquid hot boily hot.

    It's also designed to heat up quickly. I can put it on medium heat, and it'll be whistling away in less than five minutes. A legend!
