After you use this kettle, drain off the water from it well, then put it on the stove without water just to dry it out perfectly. The more you use it, the more the inside of the kettle becomes white. The iron kettle can never avoid getting rusted (oxidize). But the rust on it is 100% safe for human consumption, even if it visually comes in hot water to drink. Its been so common for craftspeople to fix hot water this way for 400 years that they can be surprised to hear general people are not familiar with that.
So please feel safe to use a rusted kettle. Size: Width 7.3 in : depth 6.1 in : Height 9.0 in : Weight63.5 oz. This product is 100% Japanese Original!
