Just spent the afternoon trolling all over town for a new whistling tea kettle.  Burned out the 2d Indonesian "Revereware" in a row, so spent some time on-line reading up and then driving around town to see who had what & about price$$$.  Looking for something, ANYthing NOT "Hecho en Chine"!  Also, didn't want an electric hot water pot, Brit-style, even if they are good in lots of ways; don't need any more electric appliances.

Ended up with a $10 Medelco with German borosilicate lab glass. We decided against the LeCreuset's because one of the shop-ladies said her daughter had melted the enamel onto her stove burner once! There were one or two other all-metal ones, but very $$$$$$$. 

So we'll see if the great klutz (me) can operate one of these, 8-). Being made of glass, MAYBE that will keep me on my toes about handling it, heating it right, etc.  If not, it's only $10.

Wish me luck!
