A covered metal pot with a bail and a spout. Before hot water heaters were available, teakettles were kept on the kitchen stove to supply hot water for such things as shaving and hand washing. A teakettle full of boiling water was also a convenient place to cook hard-boiled eggs. (When kitchen stoves burned either coal or wood, they usually had a fire in them all day, so a teakettle on the stove provided a daylong source of hot water.)
