There are some really amazing vintage tea kettles out there and now, after researching for the one in this ad, I want one. Do I drink tea? Sometimes. Must I have one of these kettles? DEFINITELY. More on that later, but back to the point of this post… the awesome tea kettle in Allstate’s commercial:
Here’s a screen grab of the kettle in question. What is it? Who makes it? Where can we find one like it? Scroll down for answers.
If you’d like to buy a kettle like this, I think you’re in luck! It’s a Le Creuset Kettle Kone. You can go directly to the Le Creuset website but the vintage kettle kone is not available there. However, there is good news: you can find still find the retro kettles for purchase on a few websites.
I’d also like to send a big thanks to Sindre Tverfjell, an adventurer in Norway who helped confirm this info for me (and for you 🙂 ). Sindre is owner of the adorable dog named Ellie, appearing in the ad. Ellie is a basset artesian normand and with those big ears, how can you not love her?
Sindre is also owner of Hustadvika Adventure, offering adventure packages on the coast of Norway, including the two islands featured in the Allstate commercial: Ona and Husøy. Check out their beautiful Instagram pictures, which makes me think Heaven must be in Norway.
PS. If you go on a Hustadvika Adventure and happen to see Ellie, be sure to pat her on the head for being such a good girl!
PPS. Don’t pat Sindre on the head, I don’t think he would like that. 🙂
OK, back to the kettle: A Le Creuset kettle kone will cost around $100 to $150 USD because of shipping (international) but there are similar kettles that might do the trick for you (listed below with links). I found a few on eBay. I would also suggest checking Etsy and Amazon using the search term “Le Creuset kettle kone” and maybe adding “meringue” if you want the creme/ivory color.
Thanks for stopping by!
