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.

We’ve reviewed and recommended models from £30 up to well over £100, to ensure we hit cater to every budget and requirement. However, the speed at which a kettle turns off once the water reaches boiling temperature is important.
For that reason, we test all kettles to review the time it takes to boil 1-litre of tap-temperature water. While your choice of kettle may largely come down to style, having a water boiler that functions well is exceptionally important.
For every model we test, we examine how easy it is to fill, whether you can easily see how much water you’re putting in, and how well it pours. We also evaluate other features such as whether it’s possible to set target temperatures for different drinks (water to make coffee shouldn’t be at boiling point, for example).
The Meg KLF03 kettle is one of the more expensive models around, but it’s also one of the quickest to reach boiling point and most classify designed. In line with the Italian company’s other appliances, the KLF03 is available in a variety of pastel shades and features a raised Meg logo on each side.
The handle feels solid and comfortable, and the kettle pours well through a removable limescale filter. A 3kW-rated kettle, the Meg KLF03 managed to boil 1-litre of water in just 2mins 5secs, making it one of the fastest models we’ve tested.
If you want to kit out your kitchen with matching small appliances, the Morphy Richards Accents range is probably on your radar. As well as the Accents Traditional Kettle on review here, the range also includes a mug tree, knife block and toaster among other items.
As with the other products that make up range, the Accents Traditional Kettle comes in a variety of colors including white, black, cream, red and blue. On the side of the Accents Traditional Kettle is a water-fill meter, measured in cups, with a line indicating the maximum 1.5-litre level.
Reaching a peak volume of 72dB, the Morphy Richards Accents Traditional Kettle is comparatively quiet. Pouring using the well-positioned handle is easy enough, and it’s good to see a replaceable limescale filter inside.
Using a peak power output of 2.9kW, the Teal Av anti Classic boiled our test 1 liter of water in 2mins 18secs, which puts it square in the middle of the pack. Pouring is easy, with the kettle ’s weight evenly distributed and the large handle.
Our only minor complaints are that the cable could be longer (it’s just 70 cm) and a pop-up lid would be a neater way to fill it. Decked out in the company’s familiar metal body and color scheme, there’s no denying that the Kitchen Artisan 1.5L Kettle is one good-looking hot-water boiler.
It’s also a quick kettle, taking 2 m 24s to reach 100C; after 10 minutes the water temperature was still a usable 86C. Without this turned on, the kettle tended to lose temperature faster than other models that we’ve reviewed.
Boiling performance, at just under three minutes to get 1-litre of water to 100C, was a touch off the pace but not enough to put us off this model. If there are two things that you want from a kettle, they’re the abilities to boil quickly and keep water warm for a long time.
Comfortable to hold and easy to fill, the Morphy Richards 108010 Metro Kettle gets all the basics right and it’s well-priced, too. The kettle connects to your Wi-Fi and you’re then free to control it via its iOS or Android app, which will let you adjust the temperature to fit your beverage.
The kettle 3.0 is a little heavy and there are some minor annoyances, such as there being no external indicator for how much water is inside. Converting electricity into heat is extremely easy, so all kettles will have similar efficiency figures.
And since UK plugs house a maximum of a 13-amp fuse, the most energy a kettle can draw is 3kW. The main differences are in regard to how quickly a kettle takes to boil, which is defined by two factors: power usage and the auto shut-off.
The automatic shut-off has a part to play: the faster the kettle can recognize that it has hit the boiling point, the quicker it will shut off and stop using power. To that end, our reviews list how much power a kettle draws and the time taken to heat 1-litre of water.
As such, a kettle that has a clear window and water scale makes it easier to fill to the level you need. Starting life on the consumer PC press back in 1998, David has been at the forefront of technology for the past 20 years.
The three-year warranty is also quite a bit more generous than the coverage for similarly priced electric kettles we looked at. The Ox also reliably hits those settings, beeps when it’s ready, and will hold the temperature for up to 30 minutes before automatically shutting off.
It heated water just as quickly as the Cuisinart CPK-17 in our tests, and it shuts off automatically as soon as it reaches a boil (a good safety feature, but you’ll need to stay close, since there’s no beep to alert you when it’s done). She spent hours testing electric kettles in her home kitchen for our 2019 update and has also worked on Wire cutter’s guide to waffle makers.
Staff writer Michael Sullivan, who conducted testing for several previous updates, has covered everything from toaster ovens to drinking glasses for Wire cutter. Getting a variable-temperature electric kettle is the key to immediately improving your hot-drink game, whether you’re a tea collector or a coffee nerd.
While exact temperatures are up for debate and come down to personal preference, the general rule is that more delicate leaves require cooler water. Speaking of coffee, it’s worth considering purchasing an electric gooseneck kettle, specifically designed for pour-overs.
Many electric kettles come with a wide range of temperature settings to accommodate different types of beverages. Illustration: Sarah MacReadingIf you’re not a coffee or tea aficionado, you may just want a no-frills basic model that only boils water; we have a pick for that, too.
Photo: Michael Session great electric kettle should hit temperatures quickly and accurately, and it should preferably come with a few special features that make it pleasant and easy to use. We’ve also found it especially helpful when guides to the ideal temperature for various beverages are printed on the machine instead of hidden in the manual.
Accurate: Reasonable accuracy is important for kettles with multiple temperature settings because there’s no point in aiming for 200 °F and hitting 212 °F instead. That said, we realize that not everyone is a coffee or tea aficionado, so we also looked at kettles that do not have variable temperature settings and simply boil water.
With gooseneck kettles, which are primarily meant for making pour-over coffee, we looked for models that gave us total control over the speed and direction of the stream. Minimal plastic: We only tested kettles made primarily from stainless steel, glass, or ceramic.
Some people, including our experts, complain about plastic kettles imparting a funny taste or smell to the water. All the models we did test, however, contained some minor plastic elements, such as parts of the lid, a filter, or the water-level window.
Safety features: Kettles should have handles and lids that stay cool to the touch and keep your hands well away from any scalding surfaces. To make that process easier, we looked for kettles with wide openings that are easy to reach into for cleaning.
Solid warranties: Our research has shown that electric kettles have a high failure rate across the board. Nice extras: Waiting is especially a pain when a kettle doesn’t have audible cues to let you know that it’s reached temperature.
Photo: Michael Session started our testing by timing how long it took each kettle to bring a liter of water to a boil. Photo: Michael HessionThe Cuisinart CPK-17 Perfected Cordless Electric Kettle has been our top pick since 2013 thanks to its ease of use, speed, and accuracy.
Unlike many of the non-gooseneck kettles we tested, it has a high capacity (1 liters) but still boasts a simple streamlined design, so it won’t be an eyesore if you store it on your kitchen counter. This is very helpful if you don’t innately know the ideal water temperatures for making specific types of tea.
It then kicks into an automated keep-warm cycle (there’s also a “Keep Warm” button, if you’d like to select this option manually) where it maintains the temperature for up to 30 minutes. Photo: Michael HessionAside from its straightforward, easy-to-use design, we found the Cuisinart had an extremely consistent boil time.
Photo: Michael HessionThe Cuisinart CPK-17 beeps once when you press a button on the control panel, and several times when it reaches a temperature setting. The Cuisinart CPK-17 is easy to clean, with a removable scale filter in the spout and a lid opening large enough for you to get a hand inside.
Just avoid splashing water on the control buttons located on the handle, and be sure to clean them with only a damp cloth or a mild dish soap if necessary. Another standout feature of the Cuisinart CPK-17 is its limited three-year warranty, which is substantially better than what you get with all the other models we tested in this price range.
Given that constantly boiling water can be rough on a gadget, having triple the warranty coverage of the rest of the pack is impressive. Since this model has a slew of other noteworthy features and has been consistently reliable over years of long-term testing, we’re willing to forgive its minor temperature variances at the lowest setting.
We haven’t experienced this issue with the kettle we’ve been long-term testing, even with regular use, but a couple Wire cutter staffers have encountered the problem with this model. A representative from Cuisinart told us: “The only cleaning solution that should be used is a damp cloth and a mild dishwashing soap.
The Ox’s simple controls look sleeker than the many buttons on other pour-over kettles we tested and are intuitive to use: you twist the knob to adjust the temperature and then press it to start heating. We also like that ideal temperature suggestions for green tea, oblong, coffee, and more (along with operating instructions) are printed directly on the base underneath the kettle, a quick-reference feature we came to increasingly appreciate as we tested more models without it.
We appreciated that the Ox’s screen displays current water temperature as it heats, so you can clock the process visually. An audible alert tells you when the water’s ready, and like the Cuisinart, the kettle will hold the temperature for 30 minutes before shutting off.
And one nice bonus we didn’t see in any other kettle we tested: the Ox comes with a count-up timer that you can use during the pour-over process to modulate the speed and duration of the pour. Photo: Sarah Kobolds far as build is concerned, we like that this kettle is made largely of stainless steel, with no plastic parts coming in contact with the water.
Although a handful of Amazon reviews complain of durability issues, it’s important to remember that electric kettles tend to have a shorter-than-average shelf life compared with other small appliances. In that time it performed well, and even after leaving water sitting in it for days, we hadn’t seen any signs of rust or other durability issues.
Wire cutter staffer Michael Session has used his to make pour-over coffee every day for the past since May 2020 and was very happy with the kettle ’s performance until it recently broke out of the blue. I looked underneath and it seems like the little pin in the center of the coil was slightly off-center or bent.” Ox quickly offered to replace his model, noting that it seemed to be a fluke.
Photo: Michael Session recommend the Hamilton Beach 40880 Stainless Steel 1.7 Liter Electric Kettle for anyone who wants an affordable basic model that quickly brings water to a boil. This Hamilton Beach model is simple to operate: You flick the tab up on the base of the handle, and the kettle begins heating the water.
Once the water reaches a rolling boil, the kettle automatically shuts off, so you don’t have to worry about turning it off manually. To begin boiling water on the Hamilton Beach kettle, you flick the tab up on the base of the handle.
Photo: Michael Session our tests, the spout on the Hamilton Beach 40880 didn’t dribble water when pouring, and the wide handle was comfortable to hold. The main drawback to the Hamilton Beach 40880 (left) is the lid’s plastic hinges, which aren’t as durable as the metal on our top pick, the Cuisinart CPK-17 (right).
Follow the instructions in the manual for removing the filter, and clean it with a cloth or brush under hot water. The Artisan kettle features an LCD screen with controls allowing you to toggle to the exact degree you want, as well as a setting to keep your water warm.
At $150, it’s hard to imagine this being a better value than our current picks, but we receive quite a few questions about nicer-looking kettles for the countertop, and are curious if this one can combine form and function to justify the higher price tag. However, it takes longer to come to a boil than either of those kettles and lacks audible cues to let you know when your water is ready.
It took the same amount of time to boil a liter of water as the Hamilton Beach 40880, but the design is clunky, and we found it less comfortable to hold and pour. But ultimately we don’t think it’s worth the price, given its rather small capacity (just under a liter) and minimal heat safe surfaces.
Yes, you can adjust the flow rate on the spout for better pour-over control, but it requires lots of fumbling inside the lip of the machine, so you better make sure you’re operating with a cold, empty kettle. And although you can set temperature in 1-degree increments, a thermometer built into the lid is a lot harder to read than an LCD screen attached to the base.
We appreciated the reasonable price, intuitive controls, and clearly labeled temperature settings of the Willow & Everett Electric Gooseneck Kettle. We were disappointed to see the steep price of the Seville BKE820XL IQ Kettle, as it doesn’t have any features to differentiate it from the Cuisinart CPK-17 and make it worth the extra cash.
We also looked at the glass Seville IQ Kettle Pure, but it’s even more expensive than the stainless steel model and less durable. The Secure 1.8 Quart Stainless Steel Cordless Electric Kettle did very well in our tests and is currently around the same price as our budget pick, but it lacks a water-level window.
If you like your teas, coffees and hot chocolates then having the best kettle within easy reach will make the brewing experience a lot more seamless. Those with a taste for tea (aka most of us Brits) will understand that buying an energy-saving option that's durable and looks good on your kitchen worktop is a top priority.

Integrated filtration Featuring a Rita filter, this kettle will remove any impurities from the water so you'll be drinking noting but pure, clean aqua. The filtration will not only reduce lime scale, metals and chlorine for better tasting hot drinks but it will also prolong the life of your kettle.
What we love about if it’s said to be a good luck charm and was created to mark the 30th anniversary of the original Alessia Bird design. What we’re not keen on Since it only has a capacity of 200cl, it’s probably not the best option when you’re expecting a crowd for tea as you’ll be spending a lot of time in the kitchen.
Look for kettles with specific energy-reducing features and functions such as rapid boil, digital control and variable temperature to ensure you don’t needlessly over-boil. Even kettle manufacturers have got in on the act, with models that can be operated via an app on your smartphone or tablet as well as being voice controlled for hands-free switch on.
So now you can turn the kettle on without leaving the sofa or on your way home from work when you fancy a brew. On-trend finish Investing in a new kettle (and maybe a matching toaster, too) is a great way of sprucing up kitchen worktops.

Most of the well-branded kettles can bring the water to rolling boil in under 5 minutes. The ability to heat the water actually depends on the wattage of the electric kettle.
Unlike a stove top kettle, an electric kettle can store a decent amount of water even after heating and keep it hot for some time after switching off the power source. You should aim for a device that offers at least 1 Liter of storage capacity, or about 4 cups.
That’s because cordless models allow the kettle to move more freely and makes it more portable. Make sure that it does, otherwise, you face the risk of the kettle drying out or over-boiling.
Ideally, a good design should ensure that the handle is made of high-quality plastic or fiber so that the user doesn’t feel the heat while he is pouring the hot liquid from the device. Packed with some useful features which include an auto-shutoff and a “heat-free” handle, it’s certain to be loved by you and your family members.
