What Is The Best Electric Tea Kettle To Buy

Number one is safety. I've nearly started a kitchen fire two separate times (20 years apart) while boiling water on the stovetop. Electric kettles generally have an automatic shut-off feature when the kettle runs dry, so you don't accidentally keep applying high heat to an empty kettle. The other reason that electric kettles are nice is that they heat water faster than a stovetop kettle does. In my testing, the electric kettles heated water to boiling 25 to 50% faster than my traditional stovetop kettle.

So how do you choose which electric kettle is best for you? All of the kettles I tested did exactly what they claimed, and there were none I'd specifically recommend against. Which one you choose depends on the features you need, your aesthetic, and your budget. This is one small appliance where looks really do matter, since it's likely to be out on your countertop full-time.

If you're going to use your kettle for pour-over coffee and you care about brewing it correctly, you'll definitely want a gooseneck spout and a built-in thermometer for precision brewing. If you're into tea, you don't need the gooseneck spout, but the built-in thermometer is still handy to make sure you're brewing each type of tea correctly to get that perfect cuppa. If you just want hot water fast for your various beverages plus other cooking and cleaning uses, you may not want to pay extra for the bells and whistles. We tested eight popular models, and here are the ones that stood out from the pack. (You can also find out which electric kettle made our list of the nine amazing kitchen products that are worth the extra money.)

This nicely priced beauty comes in six different colors, so there's probably one that will look gorgeous in your kitchen. All of the touch controls appear only when you need them, so there are no buttons or knobs to detract from the sleek appearance. The double-walled stainless steel kettle has a stay-cool plastic exterior, so you don't have to worry about burning your fingers.

There are four preset temperatures: white tea (165 degrees F), green tea (175 degrees F), oolong tea or coffee (195 degrees F), and black tea/boil (212 degrees F). Additionally, you can use the plus/minus button to change the temperatures in five-degree increments. Once you reach your chosen temperature, the kettle will hold that temperature for 60 minutes in Keep Warm mode, in case you want to brew yourself a second cup later.

The Beautiful by Drew Barrymore One-Touch Electric Kettle was one of the fastest models I tested, too, boiling four cups of water in just four minutes and 10 seconds. Like most electric kettles, this one has auto-shutoff and boil-dry protection. Available at Walmart for $50 or less, this kettle has a lot of features, making it a great value.

If you're serious about brewing pour-over coffee, you need a pour-over dripper or carafe, coffee bean grinder, digital scale, and a gooseneck kettle. The gooseneck is important because it allows a slow, even pour. This helps you ensure that all of the coffee grounds get watered evenly, which allows the coffee to bloom and the full flavor of the beans to be extracted.

The Cosori is a midpriced gooseneck kettle at about $70 that performs well. With a touch of a button, you can preset the kettle to your desired temperature. There are five temperature options for various types of tea plus one specifically for coffee. This is one of the few electric kettles that beeps to let you know your water has reached the temperature you selected, though you can turn off the beeps if you don't like them. The 1,200-watt kettle heats up four cups of water in just about four-and-a-half minutes and keeps your water at your chosen temperature for an hour. If you're into both pour-over coffee and tea, you'll love the Cosori kettle.

This little cutie reminds me of a traditional stovetop kettle. It's dead simple: just fill it, place it on the base, and push the lever. If
