Dining Mosaic: Preferred Products & Merchandise

You deserve the best

Hello! Welcome to Dining Mosaic. I am glad you’re here. As you may know, I am Miranda Knight, your host here at DiningMosaic.com. I want to tell you a little more about me and my work. Also, it would be very remiss of me not to share the products I use (or want to use) in the kitchen!

Tea Kettle

This is the sports car of the kitchen.

Let me start out by saying that I drink quite a bit of tea. And when I say quite a bit, I mean 6-12 cups of tea a day. I would say that that amount is quite a bit, wouldn’t you? I will tell you about the different kinds of tea I drink later on here in this page, but for now let’s stick to the topic of a kettle. When buying my kettle, I considered the factors of usability, durability, aesthetics, and something that would be similar in colour scheme to the other appliances in my incredibly busy kitchen.

Upon weighing all of those factors, I reached this conclusion: the De’Longhi Argento KBX 3016 was the tea kettle for me.

With its stainless steel body, 360°swivel-base feature, and detachable lid, no other electric tea kettle comes close to the competition. It’s a sexy tea kettle but also very practical. There are also some other features that you definitely have to know about — let me tell you about some of them. So, do you know when you’re boiling the water and you just want the tea kettle to stop boiling the water at the correct time? Well, this kettle does it for you — and it stops it at EXACTLY the boiling point so that you have the absolute best water with which to integrate the tea bag.

This tea kettle also does me a huge favour in my kitchen. If you are like me, you have to pack quite a bit of punch into kitchen storage. Storing your appliances is an incredibly important thing to do — and when you have something as ubiquitous as a tea kettle, it is easy to overlook the necessity to have a place to store it.

But having that small space available when you, say, have to have an extra spot for your chopping board or coffee maker or toaster or whatever else you have to pull out and use at a moment’s notice, isn’t it? Think of the space you can make where some of your everyday accessories live. Yes, I know. It’s amazing.

So this tea kettle works out beautifully in the visually-pleasing department, the workability department, and the tea-making whilst sexy department. So do you need it? I think so.
