Vogelzang 3-Qt. Tea Kettle, Model# TK-02
In less than two months. It was delivered on Dec. 19th. 2012 and the bottom rusted thru by Feb. 06. 2013.
We used it on top of our wood burning stove, with water in it continuously over that time period. Can't believe there is only one other review stating this. I should have known better, cast iron, water and air, can only end in one result....rust.

A MUST-HAVE FOR THE WOOD STOVE
I heat my home 100% with a wood stove. The Vogelzang tea kettle is the perfact accessory. I put 4 of them on the stove and they keep the humidity in the home a comfortable 45 to 50%. I remove the tops for easier filling and greater efficiency. I take the head off my garden watering can and use it to easily fill the tea pots. There is no wintertime static in my home due to the Vogelzang tea kettles I use.
A truly great product.

Dry Heat Relief
We ordered this tea kettle to use with our new wood burning stove. It works fantastic! With the wood burning stove, it tends to get dry heat circulating throughout...especially in the room you are in. We are pleaseantly surprised by the amount of moisture it actually releases into the air. We would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to ease the dryness of the use of a wood stove!

Every stove should have a teapot like this!
This teapot sits on our wood stove and humidifies our whole house adding to the comfort during those cool winter nights here in Florida! "A must have for every wood burning stove. Cast iron teapot retains heat long after the last coal has burned out and the handle grip allows you to lift it from the stove without burning your hand. Highly recommended as a stoveplace accessory. Seasoned the teapot with my cast iron cookware for long lasting finish.

Even better if you use this tip
This cast iron kettle is a great buy and will last for many life times if you will do one thing after you buy it, properly cure the cast iron. This is also an answer to the reviewer that had the rust problem. After washing this pot with soapy water I found it is best to use Crisco (in the can) and rub a thin amount all over the kettle inside and out. Make sure you catch every bit of cast iron. Don’t need to worry about the shinny steel handle. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees or better yet if you have an outdoor gas grill adjust your heat to about 325 to 375 degrees. Close lid. The gas grill outside is actually the best because the Crisco will smoke some as it bonds to the cast iron. Let the kettle stay in the oven or grill for one hour. Let cool fully and you have now bonded and cured your cast iron. You should try and do this once a year to keep it from rusting.

Looks good on our wood stove as well as adding moisture to the air.

Very substantial and able to keep steam in the air when moisture is required on those dry winter days with you wood stove going. I would caution that there is a "break-in" time while a particulair scent is emitted due to curing of the paint. Very esthetic and functional too.

Boosts room comfort
We got this to boost the air moisture in the room our stove is in. Once the stove is hot, the kettle is a tastefull looking way to add some moisture and keep the immediate area more comfortable. Looks nice on the stove when being used, and even when we aren't.
