Sure you want a pretty tea kettle, but it should be relatively efficient, too. The Yanagi Tea Kettle ($150), designed by Sori Yanagi, boasts a wide base, an ergonomic handle, and a shiny stainless steel body. It heats up fast for a quick cuppa tea or boiling water to add to your hot toddy. And we're pleased to see its counter appeal doesn't get lost within all that functionality. There's no need to hide this one under the sink!
