I didn’t buy the other Kettle.
I found one that could be for life. The price was a little higher, and needs a bit more time and effort in the care, but I still feel that it is more satisfying. It was made in Niigata, in Tsubame. It has been some time since I bought it, at the beginning of this year. The spotless, shiny copper surface has become naturally opaque with time.
I always wipe it clean it with clear water, with both hands and an empty stomach.
I whisper “I thank you and best regards”, and have been answered in y tiny voice “Well, it is my purpose”.
