For efficient and safe boiling, always use burner a similar in size to the base of the kettle.
Cleaning and care
Do not bang the teakettle down onto a stove's surface or work surface. Repeated banging may damage the exterior enamel.
Do not place the kettle on the heat source without having water in the kettle. Never leave a teakettle simmering for long periods on any heat source; it may boil dry, which can result in overheating and damage to the base and enamel.
Do not leave water standing in a kettle when it is not in use. A buildup of scale may occur and reduce efficiency.
Before pouring from your teakettle, remove it from the burner and ensure the handle is in the upright position.
Le Creuset proudly uses heat-resistant plastic on our handles and whistles.
Never place in the dishwasher.To clean, simply hand-wash the kettle with hot, soapy water and dry thoroughly. A gentle kettle de-scaler may be used periodically if required.
Distinguishing itself from other Le Creuset demi kettles, this 1-1/4-quart vessel offers the added benefit of a whistle that communicates with a high-pitched tone when the water has reached its boiling point. Thanks to a carbon-steel core, heat conducts quickly and evenly. The pot's exterior features Le Creuset's renowned enamel coating providing a surface that not only looks lovely, but also wipes clean with a damp cloth. Additional features include a removable lid that fits tightly to trap in heat and a locking handle that facilitates safe pouring and transport. Although heat-resistant, the handle can get quite warm so oven mitts are recommended. Appropriate for heating sources ranging from gas and electric to radiant and ceramic, the stovetop teakettle will function in any household. Measuring 5-5/8 by 5-5/8 by 4-3/8 inches, the piece benefits from periodic de-scaling and should be hand washed.
