Anyone have a non-plastic, long-lasting kettle that they'd like to recommend?

I've been looking for a kettle to buy that 1) isn't made of plastic, 2) doesn't have any plastic parts in the reservoir where water is boiled, 3) is durable, and 4) is available in Canada. Bonus points if it's efficient on power, though at this point I'd consider a stovetop or an electric kettle with this (so far) hard-to-find combination of characteristics. I've been looking at enamel kettles and stainless steel kettles, but most of the ones I've found either have plastic parts on the inside, have the frequently moving parts made of plastic that seem easily breakable (like the hinge on the lid or spout), or have reviews that describe them as practically flaking apart on contact with an element...
Anyone have any good experience with a kettle with these non-plastic, durable qualities? Any avid tea drinkers out there who have a kettle that has stood the test of time? Thanks for your help!
