OXO Good Grips Uplift Tea Kettle

Classic Function & Style

Lift to pour - it's that simple

The Pressure Is On!

In 1998, before the development of the Uplift, OXO introduced its first Tea Kettle. Safety and practicality were the guiding principles during the development process, and our little Kettle came complete with an innovative steam shield. 

The Missing Piece

However, through user feedback during the development process, we realized we missed a key consumer insight – that a Tea Kettle, while a practical kitchen tool, is often also a centerpiece in the kitchen. It will be left out on the stovetop when not in use and, believe it or not, some users even coordinated their entire kitchen decor around their Kettles. While the steam shield on our original Kettle was innovative, it was considered by many to be unsightly (some likened it to the "Flying Nun"!). In 1999, we made an aesthetic tweak to our otherwise safe, practical and well-performing Kettle with the Uplift. The kicker is that all of its elegant aesthetics came as a direct result of making the Uplift safe and easy to use.

An Instant Icon

With its now-iconic shape, the OXO Good Grips Uplift Tea Kettle became a quick classic, and it's actually the most requested OXO item used in propping television and movie sets. Look for it next time you watch "The Big Bang Theory!"

It's so popular, in fact, that when it had its 10th Anniversary, we gave it a bit of a facelift. With natural cork and high-grade stainless steel and durable zinc finishes, the Uplift Tea Kettle Anniversary Edition features a new and innovative use of a familiar material. No longer used just for keeping the fizz in champagne, cork is a natural, renewable and beautiful material found on the handles of the Kettle and lid. Known for its insulation properties, cork creates heat-resistant handles while also providing a soft, nonslip grip.
