Tetsubin (Iron Kettles ) do require some extra effort to use and maintain but they can be appreciated not only for their beauty. Iron kettles have excellent heat distribution and retention properties. The iron from the pot released in the water can be appreciated as a dietary source of iron as well as improving the flavor of the water. With proper care an iron kettle will last a lifetime.
