The case for electric kettles - let’s explain

Tea and coffee tastes better Different types of hot drinks need to be boiled at varying temperatures to bring out the best flavour. Using a stove or microwave affects the boiling consistency which may in turn affect the taste of your tea or coffee. Electric kettles come with built-in temperature control and switch off automatically when water is sufficiently boiled.

Reduce your electricity bill Electric kettles are much more energy-efficient than electric stovetops or a microwave thanks to their high wattage. This allows water to heat up more rapidly than on the electric stovetop which reduces electricity usage.

Safer than stove tops An electric kettle comes with an advanced feature of auto shut-off, making it a safer process. Unlike traditional stovetop, electric kettles stop the boiling process as soon as the water starts bubbling. This also helps to avoid spillage or over-boiling out of the kettle. Plus there is no exposure to open flames on a gas burner.

Saves time Waiting for water to boil takes a long time, especially during the winter months when water is very cold. An electric kettle boils water within a short span of time so you can enjoy your cup of tea or coffee much quicker.

Factors to consider when buying a kettle

  • Capacity – Larger kettles are suitable for a big household or for when having guests over so you can make multiple cups of tea or coffee at the one time, saving time and energy usage.

  • Heating performance – Look for high energy efficiency rating to get the most value out of your kettle.

  • Material finish – Choose from a variety of finishes such as stainless steel kettles, coloured plastic, glass kettles and copper depending on your kitchen style.

  • Durability – As kettles are used on a daily basis, look for high-quality which can handle the wear and tear of daily use.

  • Price – Available in a range of price points depending on internal construction and materials, consider where and how you will be using your kettle to get the best value for your price point.

Smart kettle features to look out for

  • Instant boil – A key feature where the heating coil heats up more rapidly for faster boiling.
