Fun Novelty Kettles

You probably already have a kettle, so why look for another one? Well, maybe just for fun! Novelty kettles are sure to get the family into a good mood in the morning before school and work. They also make great gifts for those friends who have everything.

Why not consider a kettle that changes color or a kettle that folds up? They are unusual and are sure to be a talking point when guests come around. Delight the grandkids with a Mad Hatter Tea Party and an elephant kettle or zebra kettle to match the theme.

For tech-geeks, you can connect a smart kettle to an app and get it boiling to a pre-selected temperature while you are still in bed in the morning. I mean, why not add a kettle app to the gazillion apps that you already have on your mobile? Unfortunately, the kettle won’t be able to bring you coffee in bed, but I am sure you can make a plan.

My reviews below focus on some of the novelty kettles out there. You probably already have a kettle but it is always fun to mix things up a bit. You can use your boring kettle Monday to Friday and bring out your fun novelty kettle on the weekend.

PAHTTO Portable Collapsible Camping Kettle

This fun kettle can fold into a tiny size that fits into a backpack, suitcase, or carry-on. I love this for those weekends away when you find a not-so-clean-looking kettle in your guest room. Simply unfold your PAHTTO portable kettle, fill it with water, and it boils in a jiffy.

This novelty kettle has a quality stainless steel base and a food-grade silicon body that collapses in seconds to half its size. It is BPA-free, odorless, and non-toxic, giving you a 100% safe way to boil water.

There is a handy lid-lock mechanism at the handle that keeps the lid closed when pouring. No more sudden gush of boiling water that will scald your hands if you are not paying attention.

The kettle holds 520 oz and comes with a matching Collapsible Bowl and 2 Collapsible Cups. It is also ideal for camping and can be used over a fire, but I would be cautious and ensure that the silicon sections do not get direct fire heat. For ease of cleaning, it is dishwasher safe.

Toptier Cast Iron Teapot, Stovetop Safe Japanese Cast Iron Tea Kettle

I am totally hooked on the look of this awesome kettle. It is made of cast iron, making it super heavy and solid. It has a beautiful diamond design in two-tone colors. This photo shows it in dark green, but you can get it in aqua, black, green, pink, white, and yellow. These choices are sure to fit in with any décor theme.

The novelty kettle holds enough water for 3 to 4 cups when boiled. It is far sturdier than ceramic and glass and I am sure if you drop it, your cement floor will crack before the kettle does. You can use it on most stove tops including induction cookers, electric stovetops, gas stoves, ceramic stoves, halogen, and wood stoves. For easy pouring, it has a non-drip spout and an ergonomic fold-down handle.

In traditional Japanese style, you can put your loose tea leaves directly into the infuser inside the kettle. The interior is fully enameled to retain the taste and flavor of the tea. To clean it, simply rinse with warm water.

COSORI Electric Gooseneck Kettle Smart Bluetooth

Tech-geeks who love apps cannot miss out on the COSORI Electric Gooseneck Kettle Smart Bluetooth. The word Bluetooth should tell you all you need to know. This is a smart device that you can control while sitting in the garden playing on your mobile phone.

The interior, lid, and spout are made of food-grade 304 stainless steel. The kettle has no Teflon or chemical linings. You will never experience that nasty plastic taste. You can boil up to 0.85 quarts of water in 3 to 5 minutes. For safety, the kettle has auto shut-off and boil-dry protection functions.

Let’s get to the fun part … using the free VeSync app you can set the desired temperature between 104°F to 212°F and monitor it in real time. You can decide when you want your kettle to start heating. Control fanatics can set it for the minute after you have finished frying your over-easy eggs and toasting your artisan bread.

It has 4 Presets to choose from and a Baby Formula Mode that I really like. This will cool the water to a set temperature after boiling. The water will then be at the perfect temperature for baby formula. No more testing water on your wrist and standing the chance to scald yourself!

As well as all these fancy features, the COSORI Electric Gooseneck Kettle has a stylish design that will make an impact when guests come over. It comes in a shade called Space Black that is black (perhaps?) but certainly sounds so much cooler. The handle is designed to stay cool, a must-have for me.
