Product Description

OXO's Kettles – The Pressure is On

In 1998, OXO introduced its first Tea Kettle. Safety and practicality were the guiding principles during the development process, and our little Kettle came complete with an innovative steam shield.

Through user feedback, we realized we missed a key consumer insight – that a Tea Kettle, while a practical kitchen tool, is often a centerpiece in the kitchen. Users would leave them out on the stovetop when not in use and some even coordinated their entire kitchen decor around their Kettles. While the steam shield was innovative, it was considered by many to be unsightly (some likened it to the "Flying Nun"!).

In 1999, we corrected the aesthetic flaws to our otherwise safe, practical and well-performing Kettle with the Uplift. The kicker is that all of its elegant aesthetics came as a direct result of making the Uplift safe and easy to use.

Fun Fact:

The OXO Uplift Tea Kettle has an iconic shape that has become an instant American classic. It is the most requested OXO item used in propping television and movie sets. Look for it next time you watch "The Big Bang Theory!"

Problems Identified
  • Handles on tea kettles are positioned too close to the steam and hot water at the spout, making it uncomfortable while pouring
  • Angle of kettle handles combined with weight of filled kettle make it difficult for users to lift and pour without straining wrists
  • Fine motor skills required to open kettle trigger to pour hot water; difficult for many older users to maneuver
  • Small opening on top makes it difficult to clean interior of kettle
The Process
  • The quest for the perfect interaction point between the spout and the handle (so the kettle would not open when carried around filled with water, but would open easily when tipped forward) led us to the current connection between the spout and handle, one that resembles a splash of water.
  • The same connection point was also designed to keep the spout open if the user chose, so that they could keep the Uplift's whistle quiet while boiling water, which is especially handy when preparing an early morning cup of tea.
  • While designing an opening large enough to be easy to clean, we needed to ensure it wasn't so low as to limit the maximum water level, but we still needed to keep it in balance with the spout for aesthetic reasons.
  • Through user research, we learned that steam would sometimes escape from the lid and unfortunately heat the handle, so we added a silicone seal to minimize any unintended heat transfer and keep the kettle safe and easy to use.

OXO's Solutions
  • Large, comfortable handle is angled away from the spout and is heat resistant and non-slip, even when wet
  • Handle angle allows user to hold Kettle comfortably and without wrist strain, whether filled with water or nearly empty, by adjusting grip accordingly
  • Whistle spout opens automatically when Kettle is tipped to pour – no awkward buttons or levers to press
  • Wide opening on top of Kettle enables easy access for cleaning and can also be used as an opening to fill Kettle

The OXO Story:

In 1990, OXO staged a revolution (of sorts) by offering an easy-to-use, high-performing alternative to uncomfortable and ineffective kitchen gadgets. OXO's innovative take on the traditional Swivel Peeler, complete with its pudgy black handle, raised consumers' expectations of what could be expected from household products.

Today OXO offers over 800 products, each developed with a close (some might say "obsessive") attention to detail. Our goal is to deliver products that maximize comfort AND performance, illustrating our mission to create innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.

I bought it in March. Loved it. The best. Exactly what it should be. Just now the whistle fell out. The screw is stripped. It is now a sinister rogue tea kettle that doesn't let you know when the water is hot. Boo.

Update 2/25/2014
So, I feel it's my responsibility, since I gave a somewhat negative review, to provide this update: I called up the company to complain that I was still using this tea kettle with no whistle and how do they respond? A brand new one just showed up at my door! Wow! Love the product, impressed with the customer service, I officially take my "Boo" back. :)

When my husband told me he wanted a tea kettle, I decided to look for the most attractive one I could find. This is it. (The other one that nearly made the cut is this lovely Le Creuset enamel job, also available in stainless:Le Creuset Enamel-on-Steel Whistling 1-4/5-Quart Teakettle, Caribbean)

The mechanism for opening the pour-spout is a bit unusual; the entire handle lifts up and the spout cover lifts out of the way. This sounds kludgey, but actually works quite well. When I realized this, I thought it would be impossible to pick up the teakettle by the handle without accidentally popping it open. In fact, it's quite easy; I've never had it pop open accidentally.

The cork stays nicely cool even when the kettle boils.

The whistle is inoffensive, if not inspiring.

Given the choice, I would absolutely buy this again.

Searched all over for a stainless steel kettle that did not have steam escape when boiling, did not dribble when pouring, whistled, did not have any plastic in touch with the water, required only one hand to pour, and held a decent amount of water. It was a gift for my daughter and her husband. It seemed like basic requirements. After a frustrating number of weeks of finding kettles that had part of the requirements, or were no longer being made, we FINALLY found this kettle. My daughter and her husband love it! It does what is asked of it and looks nice on the stove as well. The cork handles are a nice addition and allow them to not have to use a hot pad when using this kettle. Thank you OXO for another winning product!

I really like the design of this tea Kettle. It boils quickly, whistles, holds water well, no leaks. Handle is cool to the touch. The pour mechanism works well. It is very classy!

This is hands down my favorite tea kettle I've owned; nicely weighted, unique look, and the design helps me remember to use the whistle so that I don't forget I have water boiling. I had the brushed stainless/cork handled version for several years and it showed NO signs of rust or wear despite being used multiple times per day on my glasstop stove. Then recently, an unfortunate incident happened with the original one; a houseguest neglected to check whether any water remained in the pot, and turned the burner on high under an empty kettle, then left the room and forgot about it until smelling something burning. The pot looked like it had been in a fire -- it was nearly blackened, and the cork had turned a darker color, but hadn't caught fire (I had no idea it could be THAT heat resistant). The silicone seal around the lid had even melted. I deemed the pot ruined, and promptly ordered the exact same one, though had noted that morning there were some Amazon review comments about it having a weak whistle. That hadn't been my experience at all, so I thought those reviewers mentioning the "anemic whistle" might have a much larger house than I do. The new kettle I received looked exactly the same as my first, but I was shocked upon using it to see that it continually sputtered water out of the closed spout lid when any steam was generated, and the whistle was so faint, there was no way I would have heard it outside of the kitchen. Actually, even the sound of the steaming/boiling water was significantly louder than the suggestion of a whistle coming out of it. The whistle feature was essentially pointless on this replacement. I reported it as "defective" to amazon, and was promptly shipped a replacement and given free shipping to return the weak whistler.Read more ›

I spent hours on Amazon research the best tea kettle because I'm a student and don't have enough money to just buy and see what works and what doesn't. I couldn't me more pleased with this and am so glad I paid the little bit extra to get this. Everything is stainless steel so I know that it wont really rust or fall apart. It is easy to clean it and fill it up (even if you fill it up at the sink like I do, not all tea kettles you can do this) and the pouring mechanism is neat it takes some getting used to but once you do it's awesome! The handles never get to hot with the cork, the whistle on mine isn't very loud FYI, I like that it isn't that loud just because I have a small place and it doesn't need to be screaming at me so I can hear it, it has a pleasant whistle. Anyway couldn't be happier use it 2 times a day if I have any problems with it in the future I will be sure to update to let everyone know but right now couldn't be happier!
