The Kettle House Restaurants

The word kettle originates from Ketill “Cauldron” The Earliest Kettle was earthenware containers used in ancient Mesopotamia for purposes other that cooking.

The Japanese “Bunduku” was made from iron and small in size, whereas Chinese kettles were more decorative and made from porcelain, in Singapore round bamboo kettles were used, the Russians used ceramic pottery with a mix of metal for kettles while the Kashmiri used copper ones. Metallic kettles were a common feature in the era gone by, which can be seen in the bronze kettles from Egypt to the embossed cast iron ones from Mongolia to the copper and silver kettles from Tibet. The Victorian ceramic kettles are a class apart and can be distinguished from the others.

The development of Tea Kettles was in direct co relation to the stove. During the height of the industrial revolution in the 1800’s Electric kettles were introduced as an alternate to stove top kettles.

Modern Tea kettles include a variety of technological advancements. Some kettles are cordless with illumination capabilities. Whistling kettle is equipped with lightweight dynamics and heat resistant handles.

THE KETTLE HOUSE has a collection of kettles from an eon gone by. Sheer passion for kettles has led to the collection and thus the name the Kettle House.

Gabfest Conferences

Theater Style
Seats or chairs in rows facing a stage area, head table, or speaker (with no conference table)

Used for 
This is the most efficient set-up when the attendees will act as an audience. This set-up is not recommended for food events or if note taking is required. 

Set-up hints 
This is a very flexible room set-up. Rows can be circular, semi-circular, straight, or angled toward the focal point.
Offset each row so that attendees don’t have to look over the person in front of them (this will increase the space required).
If using banquet type chairs, space them 3” to 6” apart as these chairs are normally narrower than most people’s bodies.
If you have the space, allow for 24” between rows to allow attendees easy movement in and out of the row.

Good for large groups when reading/writing are not required

Elevation changes needed for large groups
