Best Tea Kettle

Since the CH moderators asked for this to be moved, I'll jump the gun and post my answer. :)

My personal choice for best tea kettle is the Simplex copper (coil-bottomed). It's 1-3/4 quart capacity holds enough water to make a pot of tea and several individual portions. The raised body (coils) allows it to heat water more quickly than traditional kettles. The copper is /striking/ to look at and not too difficult to clean when it gets spattered. Most importantly, the handle doesn't get HOT after the water heats!
