The true story of the whistling teapots

The whistling teapots are one of the most recent in the world of tea accessories, if we compare them with the very old porcelain. They are not so refined, but they are tremendously useful and lately they have endowed them with different appearances, which make them very attractive. Know them!

Did you know that there are antecedents of attempts of whistling teapots that date back to the Maya? Well, although it seems incredible, it is. However, the first to patent them, as we know them today, was an American executive named Joseph Block. Back in the 1920s, Joseph could have no better idea than to combine a teapot with a whistle. Ingenious, no?

The device was simple: a kettle usually built in some metallic element, with a whistle in its mouth, that sounded when the water was at the right temperature. An accomplishment of Mr. Block, who exhibited his invention at a Chicago fair and with his bustle attracted many customers.

There began the fever by the whistling kettles , implements that still exist today. So much so that the designs have become increasingly sophisticated and anyone, you too if you wish, you can find a whistling teapot that is to your liking. Undoubtedly, an interesting tea accessory.

How does a whistling kettle work?

Well, very simple! It is an accessory that has a water inlet hole and a second outlet hole. They also have a whistle that is activated by the action of steam, which occurs when the water is about to reach the boiling state.

What is the feature that characterizes or distinguishes a whistling kettle from other types of kettles?

The main advantage of having a whistling kettle is that you will not have to be aware of the moment when the water is ready to prepare your tea. She will be in charge of notifying you with her particular beep. That way:

You will save your time, since you will be able to continue with other tasks.
You will save on energy by cutting off the supply as soon as the water reaches the required temperature.

You will avoid ruining your tea, because when the water exceeds the ideal temperature for its preparation, it not only alters its properties, but also its flavor.

Are whistling kettles really kettles?

To tell the truth, whistling kettles are not teapots in the strict sense of the word, if you conceive it as an accessory in which you can prepare tea. Rather it is a kettle, which you can use to heat the water for different purposes, including tea.
