Hi all,

I am redesigning my gooseneck kettle spout because I want it to trap as much heat as possible.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could modify my gooseneck spout to better trap the heat inside? I was thinking like a miniature swing check valve that had 0 resistance. Or a ball valve of some sort.

These are just some ideas. Any others?

Does the spout whistle when water boils? A cap would interfere with that.

There is the idea of a metal disk over the spout. Put it on a hinge. To fabricate it will be intricate work.

Is the kettle silver plated? Whatever method you attach something to it, would detract from the appearance. Steel epoxy, tack-welding, tiny screws. All have their disadvantage. Soldering might be all right (if you're not afraid of it leaching lead).

The spout end is open - so there is no whistle on the end.

I am wondering if there is an alternative to the hinged disk method.

Are there miniature one-way ball valves that I could usE?

What make you think that open mouth is the main problem causing heat loss? Any indications for that? I would expect it's exposed surface.

My grandma's solution was a coffee pot cozy.
