"Kettle" is listed as a synonym for tea pot. It's not; for those who use them, a tea pot and a tea kettle are two different objects. A kettle is an object for boiling water. A tea pot is an object into which one puts tea leaves and boiling water to allow the tea to brew. —This unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) at 13:24, 22 July 2009.
