Walmart Canada: Wilton Eclipse Kettle Only $10 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)
Walmart Canada has the Wilton Eclipse Kettle on sale from $19.88 down to only $10 with free shipping.
I assume the 'original' price of this kettle at Walmart Canada is already a sale or rollback price. When price comparing I found the same kettle at Staples Canada for $49.50 at Kitchen Stuff Plus for $34.99. While Walmart's kettle says Wilton and Kitchen Stuff Plus's kettle says Copco - the Copco is part of Wilton Industries - they are the same kettle.
The Eclipse kettle holds 2 quarts of water. With a large mouth, it is easy to fill and easy to clean and comes with a tight fitting lid to keep your contents hot. This is a whistling kettle, and a one-hand release will lift the whistle to allow for safe pouring. Most people will purchase this kettle for the great price and for the soft-grip handle. Not only will it make pouring comfortable, it will keep your hand from coming in direct contact with the metal.
This is not an electric kettle, but some people prefer to heat their water the old-fashioned way. When I lived on my own, I used to have a stovetop kettle instead of an electric kettle. I am not sure if the water tastes different but the kettle certainly takes up less counter space. With all the appliances they sell you these days, it just seems that counter space is always at a premium.
There are not many reviews on this kettle, but the one on Walmart said:
Seems like a good kettle. As another poster said, don't put the heat too high on it - that's when you run into problems. I decided to limit the heat to 7 (out of 10) on the burner and it works great. I wouldn't expect it not to work well, since it is only a kettle (not electric).
It is a very good idea not to turn the heat up to maximum. A kettle I had started to leak water out a seam at the bottom, and I think that was because it was turned up far too high all the time. Have a little patience with your kettle and the water will boil without needing to crank the heat up to maximum.
Walmart Canada's price is well below the price of other retailers and has free shipping so snap this deal up while it is still available.
