When was the last time that you heard someone ask you to put the kettle on? For many people, making tea is an important part of the day. Moreover, it's important to make it properly from a kettle, not using the microwave or something similar. When you stop and think about it, you can use a tea kettle for a lot of things, not just for making tea. You can also heat water to make hot chocolate, coffee and any number of other items. If you're in the mood for a gooseneck kettle, you might be wondering where you can get a hold of them or if one is superior to the other. Here are ten of the best that money can buy.

9. Stagg EKG Electric Kettle ($159.00)
This electric kettle is billed by the company that makes it as the perfect kettle of its time for genuine coffee lovers.
