These affordable tea kettles are available to buy right now.
When picking an electric tea kettle, there is more to consider than how fast it will bring your pot of water to a boil. Sure, that’s important — but so are the material it’s made from, size of the kettle and whether or not it has built-in safety features like automatic shut-off and boil-dry protection. According to top retailer sites including Amazon, Walmart, Williams Sonoma and Bed Bath & Beyond, there are a lot of different kettles that rank high and meet the basic needs of preparing hot water for coffee or a cup of tea. This can make it complicated to pick a top kettle for you. We sorted through the top options to find three that consistently ranked among the top five, and that we felt offered key features, including temperature control and a substantial warming period, proper safety and a functional design.
This model by HadinEEon is a favorite on Amazon, with users praising the precise temperature control and large two-liter capacity. It has six different temperature options, including 175 degrees for green tea, 200 degrees for French press coffee and 212 degrees for black coffee. Once it comes to a boil, which the company claims takes just five minutes, this kettle is designed to keep your water warm for up to four hours. Equipped with both auto shut-off and boil-dry protection, you can walk away from this kettle while it’s boiling without worry.
If you’re worried about keeping a glass kettle on your counter, food-grade stainless steel is another great option. Cosori’s Gooseneck Kettle is a favorite on both Amazon and Bed Bath & Beyond, offering five different temperature options, marked by drink for easy selection. According to the company, this kettle will reach the designated temperature in three to five minutes, and the keep warm function will maintain the set temperature for 60 minutes. This option is the smallest of the three, holding .8 liters of water, and it is set with safety features to shut off when boiled or if no water is detected.
