Kaico Tea Kettle
The clean lines & peaceful simplicity of this Japanese kettle bring beauty to both its form & function. Enamel coated steel provides efficient thermal heat conduction while the beechwood handle & maple knob lid elevate the design even further. The contrast between the fresh white of the enamel & the natural look of the light-colored beechwood make the brand’s simple yet modern designs brim with personality. Leaving behind the conventional notions of enamelware, Kaico presents this highly functional material in a new light: as interior decor.
