I wanted a glass stovetop tea kettle

This $15 tea kettle is just fine!

I didn't care about imparting off flavors to my tea. I rarely think about the heavy metals I'm clearly ingesting from a 20 year old stainless steel tea kettle. Mostly, the metal tea kettle is too difficult to clean. I know glass is easier to clean, and after a few decades I can use a change.

I figure cheap is also just fine. The water boils.
