Between making a mug of tea, cocoa, pour-over coffee, oatmeal, or instant soup, a kettle is a handy piece of equipment to have in the kitchen. When shopping for a tea kettle, key factors and features to keep in mind are style, design, material, finish, and safety, among other characteristics.

Contents

Electric kettles, which plug into a wall outlet, generally boil water faster and are more energy efficient than their stove top counterparts. Smaller kettles are also available, which are convenient for those with limited kitchen space or who rarely need more than a cup or two of boiled water at a time.

Tea kettles most commonly contain glass, stainless steel, or plastic, which offer different aesthetics. Stainless steel kettles, whether electric or stove top, can be used on any type of cook top, including induction.

Some models feature long gooseneck spouts for slow, precise pouring, a plus when brewing pour-over coffee. Many models have spouts with integrated filters to ensure that mineral deposits from the water can’t make their way into the beverage.

Stove top and electric kettles come with safety features to protect your hands, prevent dropping, or over boiling: Most stove top models are built to whistle once the water has begun to boil, acting as an alert to take the kettle off the heating element.

LED lights offer extra visual appeal to electric kettles and indicate that the water is heating. With the key factors and considerations in mind, these top picks reflect some of the best tea kettle models available.

The Cuisinart CPK-17 Perfected electric kettle might suit tea connoisseurs and coffee aficionados who want their water heated to a precise temperature. It offers a variety of presets to boil water or set the temperature to 160, 175, 185, 190, or 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Made from stainless steel with a clear viewing window, this kettle includes a washable scale filter, a cool-touch, non-slip handle, and a 36-inch cord. This no-frills, well-priced electric kettle from AmazonBasics is made from stainless steel, has a 1-liter capacity, and boils water quickly.

It has a 1,500-watt power capacity and a viewing window with volume markings to show how much water is inside. Renowned for enameled cookware, Le Crest enters the kettle market with a classic model.

This electric kettle from Mueller holds up to 1.8 liters of water and is constructive with borosilicate glass. Interior LED lights indicate that the water is heating while providing a neat visual effect.

The 1000ml Hi ware Glass Teapot contains an ergonomic handle and a spout designed to avoid dripping. The Mr Coffee Clare dale Whistling Tea Kettle is a solid choice for households with several hot beverage drinkers but limited kitchen storage.

Mr Coffee’s Clare dale Whistling Tea Kettle has a brushed stainless steel finish and a classic dome-style shape. Consider whether you prefer a glass or stainless steel model (most popular), which capacity would best suit you, and if you’re looking for a particular color or aesthetic.

If you’re interested in advanced features, keep an eye out for models with temperature control, built-in filters, keep warm functions, and water gauges. Tea kettles made from glass are best for health because they limit the risk of releasing any metal or other toxins into the water as it boils.

Stainless steel kettles offer optimal heat resistance, making them the best choice for a gas stove. Try to boil just the amount needed at a time, and empty any remaining water to avoid oxidation.

It’s best not to leave water in a kettle for more than a couple of hours to avoid buildup of limescale, a hard chalky deposit consisting mainly of calcium carbonate, which can be difficult to remove. Electric kettles, which can achieve a boil in just minutes, aren’t just a faster way to heat water.

So pay attention to the product description and reviews if your primary goal is to whip up your morning drink in record time. Here are our top picks for the best electric kettles on the market right now, based on excellent online reviews.

Soft-open lid to prevent hot water splash and steam release This high-end Seville model has high ratings on Amazon and Williams-Sonoma, and customers love it for its versatility, consistency, ease of use and sleek, modern look.

A glass electric kettle is most appealing when a pure taste is a top priority, but users also appreciate the water level visibility and a modern aesthetic. This one from beloved kitchenwares brand Ox wins big points for accuracy and ease of use.

It signals when it's up to temp, and again when the keep-warm function times out,” writes one five-star reviewer. If you’re willing to compromise on bells and whistles for speed and value, you’ll like this AmazonBasics option, which boasts close to 30,000 4.5-star reviews.

It’s slightly smaller than other options, with just a four-cup capacity, but its ability to quickly boil water (in fewer than 4 minutes) more than makes up for it. It has saved me the problem of worrying about whether I remembered to turn the stove off in the mornings when I leave for work,” writes one five-star reviewer.

After you achieve the perfect temp, keep your water hot for up to 30 minutes with the built-in Keep Warm setting. Williams-Sonoma buyers say it’s easy to clean, heats up fast, and stays cool on the outside.

Another ultra-fast pick, this Hamilton Beach model isn’t just speedier than competitors. “It boils fast, looks good on the counter and is well priced.

With extremely accurate temp control and a Keep Warm setting that preserves your preferred temperature for up to an hour, you can have as many cups of coffee as you’d like. It heats a full kettle of water to a boil in 3 minutes.

Tea Basket cycle that automatically lowers and lifts This pricier Seville model allows users to brew their preferred tea leaves at the ideal temp for a perfect cup, every time.

Just press the button and watch the basket lower into the water. Prevent over-steeping with the help of the Time Since Brew display, and keep your water hot for up to an hour.

“I love this tea maker and can't imagine going back to a world before it. If you are someone who loves the ritual of tea making, this will of course not really be up your alley,” writes one five-star reviewer.

“I even moved some stuff aside to let it permanently live this winter on our precious counter space.” Editors' note, Oct. 16, 2020 : The Cuisinart CPK-17 electric kettle has been removed from this list due to customer feedback and Amazon reviews stating that the auto shut-off feature is defective and poses a potential fire hazard.

I use mine regularly to brew French press coffee and to add boiling water to a simmering stockpot. There are a wide variety of options, from the most basic models to kettles with specialty features such as hold temperature buttons and dedicated tea-steeping baskets.

A button on the top of the handle makes it easy to open the lid safely so you won't get hit with any steam. A digital display gives you a readout of what the brewer is doing and it has a keep warm button that helps your water stay hot for up to 60 minutes.

In addition to that, the BTM800XL comes with a basket for your loose-leaf tea that automatically lowers when you select your options, as well as a teaspoon measuring spoon. Megan Fullerton/Nettle $100 Ox 8717100 is a great kettle in general, but its gooseneck spout is particularly appealing for pour-over, or other manual coffee making that requires a steady, controlled pour.

AmazonBasics MK-M110A1A Bod um Mellor Seville BTM800XL Cuisinart CPK-17 Kitchen KEK1222SX Miro co MI-EK003 Event KG83B Ox 8717100 The $80 Kitchen KEK1222SX looks the most like a classic stove top kettle, but its on/off-only functionality seems limited for its high price.

The $100 Cuisinart kettle has the largest capacity at 58 ounces, or 7.25 cups and nearly as many options as the very pricey $250 Seville BTM800XL tea maker. Both of these kettles have custom heat options for the perfect cup of tea, whether it's green, black, herbal -- or another variety.

The Event KG83B electric kettle has a great price and it's easy to use, but it didn't particularly stand out during my testing. Sensors attached to this Riser thermocouple thermometer helped me track water temperature.

Megan Fullerton/CNET To test our batch of eight electric kettles, I used a Riser thermocouple thermometer. For the boil test, I watched the thermocouple display until the sensor tracking the temperature inside each kettle reached 209 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keep in mind that the thermocouple readings aren't exact and that there will be slight variation based on placement during testing. The Seville BTM800XL, Cuisinart CPK-17 and the Ox 8717100 each offered keep warm or hold temperature functions, so I did extra testing with these models.

The Ox kettle was the only model of the three that allowed you to select a set temperature for it to hold. The other two simply had “keep warm” options that prevent the water from cooling down as quickly as it might otherwise, but don't let you customize the temperature setting the kettle maintains.

They also have their handle on the side and will generally hold a larger volume of water. If waiting for your kettle to boil isn’t a major issue for you, a lower wattage will work just as well.

It’s worth bearing in mind though that these models can take much longer and use more energy to make your cuppa. It’s a handy feature if you like to drink more delicate herbal and green teas, which should be brewed below boiling.

For every milliliter of water you add to your kettle, an extra gram is added to its overall weight, meaning they can get quite heavy. It's also worth checking the position and shape of the handle, which may affect the balance when pouring and filling.

Most kettles have removable, washable anti-scale water filters that sit at the base of the spout. These collect pieces of limescale from the water to prevent them from being poured into your drink, and they stop scum forming on the surface.

It is equally important to check the water gauge to make sure your kettle hasn’t been overfilled, which could boil over and be a safety hazard. Some bases also have an additional cable storage feature underneath for tucking away any excess cord.

The outside stayed cool, reaching just 35C with the kettle freshly boiled, but be wary that the stainless steel elements get hotter. It’s also worth noting that the water level gauge is inside the kettle.

We like that it’s easy to fill through the spout, pours accurately with no splashing or spitting and is lightweight, weighing just 680g when empty and 2.4 kg at full capacity. The minimum quantity is 280ml, enough for a large cup of tea, and it takes a speedy 45 seconds to boil.

The maximum 1.7-litre capacity is also quick to boil, taking just three-and-a-half minutes (only 30 seconds more than the winning kettle). The casing temperature after boiling reached 63C, hotter than we'd like, but the handle remained cool and safe to touch.

4Swan Symphony Collection 1.7L Jug Kettle SK31050amazon.co.this kettle is among the most compact we’ve tested and the wide, rounded spout makes for fast filling, providing a clean and accurate pour. When boiling a full kettle, the external casing temperature remained a cool to touch.

The compact design also means it won’t take up much space on your kitchen counter. It boils enough for a large cup of tea in under fifty seconds and one liter in just over two minutes.

One thing to note is that it emits a lot of steam and wobbles on its base towards the end of the boiling cycle. 6Kenwood ZJP05. A0GY Abbey Grey 1.7L Kettle While it wasn’t the fastest in our tests, it performed well.

While it took a speedy three minutes and twenty seconds for the maximum capacity of 1.5 liters to reach boiling point, we noticed it made a lot of steam in the process. The detachable lid made it very easy to fill up and empty and the non-slip hand was comfortable to hold, too.

We loved the sculptured resin finish and it’s available in distinctive colors, including bronze and metallic blue. It boils one cup of water in under 45 seconds, so it’s ideal for people who usually only make one hot drink at a time.

There are literally a hundred different kinds of tea kettles, which means buying a suitable one can be a difficult task. Made from stainless steel, Total C76220 is safe from unwanted rust and oxidation.

Coming with a spout lid, Total C76220 ensures that you can’t accidentally spill boiling water from it. It can boil water in a short amount of time, it has a large capacity, it doesn’t rust, and it’s easy to clean.

Cons Not compatible with induction cook top Maximum fill line of kettle is rather low It doesn’t rust like many of my previous kettles, and its tightly sealed lid means that my clumsy self has been saved many times from accidentally splashed myself with freshly boiled water.

I live alone, so the low maximum fill line doesn’t bother me much. If you’re planning to buy this kettle, then check out its user line in this link.

Furthermore, metals such as aluminum, copper can leach harmful chemicals into your drink and, therefore, affect your health. On the other hand, if you prefer kettles that won’t leach anything into your tea, then maybe glass would be our best bet.

Nowadays, most kettles on sale have built-in whistle to alert the users that their water has come to a boiling point. Many kettles’ exteriors get so hot after boiling that it’s impossible to touch them without an oven mitt.

Kettles with scorching surfaces can potentially burn the users if they aren’t careful enough. So if you don’t want to burn yourself, then you should do extensive research to make sure that your kettle will not get too hot on the outside after boiling.

There are also people who travel a lot and want to have a lightweight kettle that won’t weigh them down during their trip. So, even though this may not seem like a big issue, you should look up kettles’ weight before buying them so that they won’t be too heavy for you.

Consider your need, do you need to boil a cup or two every day on average, or do you have to make several beverages? Buying a kettle that is too big, and not being able to find a place to put it away will not be a fun business.

Currently, the most durable materials are 18/10 stainless steel and borosilicate glass. For tea lovers, one of their biggest concerns is the question of what might be the safest kettle material.

The key feature of non-toxic materials is that they won’t leach into your drink or can be scratched off easily. You might be freaking out, thinking about the aluminum covered pots and pans you or your friends have.

A cracked kettle can drip scorching water onto you, which is undoubtedly a safety concern. This metal is made of iron with a layer of oxide produced from Chromium.

Lastly, if it isn’t coated with any other material, stainless steel’s surface can’t be scratched off and, therefore, won’t leave chips in your water. Rusty kettle can be a pain in the neck, it looks unappetizing, and it can pose a health risk to its owners.

If you dig long and deep enough into the review section, you will definitely find one or two complaints about the product rusting. If your household uses hard water, then there’s a higher chance of your kettles getting rust stains.

Well, you can address the problem with baking soda, lemon juice, vinegar, or a water softener. If you can’t find a water softener anywhere, then here’s an instruction to clean all the rust from your beloved tea kettles.

Fill the kettle with water and white vinegar with a ratio of 1:1 Place the kettle on the stove and boil the liquid Once the liquid comes to a boiling point, wait a few minutes before turning off the heat. Use a scrubbing pad (remember to avoid abrasive ones) to clean the insides of the kettle.

If you feel stainless steel is not a good enough option, then glass kettles are worth your consideration. Even though they can be more fragile than their stainless steel counterparts, you can rest assured that they will not go rusty on you.

Compared to other materials such as aluminum, copper, ceramic glazes… stainless steel is considerably safer. However, if you are still unconvinced with my answers, then I would suggest that you opt for glass tea kettles.

They contain no harmful chemical or metal; they don’t rust, chip off, or leach anything into your drink. One fun fact, borosilicate glass is used in laboratory environment because it does not contaminate its content in any way.

For many, they feel that glass kettles are undoubtedly superior to stainless steel ones and vice versa. They don’t crack easily, they can withstand extreme heats better, and some of them can boil faster.

Glass tea kettles, on the other hand, may look a lot more elegant than stainless ones to some people. As mentioned above, stainless steel should be a safe material for kettles, but only when there’s no rust on them.

After trying many tea kettles, my personal favorite definitely is Willow camp; Everett Stainless Steel Whistling Teapot. It has a short heating time thanks to it 5-layer encapsulation, it’s highly durable, especially against rust and oxidation, it’s toxic-free, and it’s everything you can ever ask for in a tea kettle.

The other two simply had “keep warm” options that prevent the water from cooling down as quickly as it might otherwise, but don't let you customize the temperature setting the kettle maintains. As soon as the temperature began to drop, the kettle would turn back on and heat the water up to around 205 degrees.

Regardless of the specific model you buy, start by thinking about how you plan to use your kettle -- are you a pour over coffee fiend? If you want a piping hot cup of tea or just speed up your pasta supper, this appliance will make your life infinitely more convenient.

Since the heating element is concealed, you’ll be able to clean the bottom of the gadget without a hassle. If you notice any limescale deposits, simply soak it in some vinegar for an hour and wipe it clean with a damp rag.

It catches any mineral deposits that have formed and stops them from falling into your drink. The Miro co Stainless Steel Pot takes a no-frills approach: it has a minimalist design, no complicated extra features, fits every kitchen, and works great.

Since this tea kettle has a double wall, it keeps cool to the touch, even when the water is already boiling. Another great aspect of this product is how quickly the heating element boils the water.

It prolongs the kettle ’s lifetime, making purchasing it a great investment. Besides boiling water like all other similar appliances, this kettle will also brew your tea for you.

The mesh tea infuser holds the loose leaves during the brewing process. On top of all that, this model also boasts boil dry protection and automatic shut off.

If you’re willing to splurge on a kettle, you’ll want to go that extra mile for this COS ORI model. It performs great consistently, has a beautiful design, and boasts awesome features.

The “hold temperature” feature keeps the water warm or even close to boiling for up to one hour. The stainless steel interior and exterior are great quality and make the price well worth it.

It lets you control the flow of hot water perfectly, which is handy for when you’re wetting a coffee filter or trying to brew specialty tea, The biggest leg-up that this gadget has over the competition is the fact that it lets you control the water temperature.

Adjustable temperature and keep warm settings are very useful if you want to brew a spectacular cup of tea or coffee. Gooseneck kettles are great for pouring tea elegantly and handy when it comes to making pour-over coffee.

However, these models are usually more expensive and the gooseneck is fragile; if you hit it on the counter, there’s the neck chance it will break off. Straight spout kettles, on the other hand, pour a much wider stream of hot water.

Moreover, if you’re looking to boil water just so you can more quickly cook pasta or rice, this is a good model to turn to. Lastly, straight spouts are also much more durable and can withstand more wear and tear.

Thus, you save money on electricity, prevent the kettle from overheating, and you’ll know exactly when the water is at the perfect temperature. That means you’ll save money in two ways: no wasting electricity if there’s no water to boil and no ruining a perfectly good kettle by overheating it.

To ensure your kettle keeps running for many years, you’ll need to clean it regularly. You’ll also need to remove any limescale deposits that build up at the bottom of the boiler.

The $100 Cuisinart kettle has the largest capacity at 58 ounces, or 7.25 cups and nearly as many options as the very pricey $250 Seville BTM800XL tea maker. Both of these kettles have custom heat options for the perfect cup of tea, whether it's green, black, herbal -- or another variety.

The Event KG83B electric kettle has a great price and it's easy to use, but it didn't particularly stand out during my testing. Sensors attached to this Riser thermocouple thermometer helped me track water temperature.

Megan Fullerton/CNET To test our batch of eight electric kettles, I used a Riser thermocouple thermometer. For the boil test, I watched the thermocouple display until the sensor tracking the temperature inside each kettle reached 209 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keep in mind that the thermocouple readings aren't exact and that there will be slight variation based on placement during testing. The Seville BTM800XL, Cuisinart CPK-17 and the Ox 8717100 each offered keep warm or hold temperature functions, so I did extra testing with these models.

The Ox kettle was the only model of the three that allowed you to select a set temperature for it to hold. The other two simply had “keep warm” options that prevent the water from cooling down as quickly as it might otherwise, but don't let you customize the temperature setting the kettle maintains.
