Electric Kettle Buying Advice

An electric kettle is the most convenient way to heat water for home and office use. It makes hot beverages like tea fast and easy to prepare. When compared to water heated in a microwave, tea tastes much better when made with freshly boiled water. All these kettles switch off automatically when the water boils, which is a big advantage over the stove top kettles which whistle until you turn them off. Most of current kettles are using a cordless design. The power cord is attached to the base, and the kettle can be lifted off for more convenient filling and serving. Most customers prefer this type of electric kettles.

Electric Kettle
Electric kettles are the fastest to heat, and provide convenience and beauty. Water kettles are meant to heat up water. Important elements to consider might include: what is the capacity of the kettle, how efficient is the kettle, is the handle comfortable to hold, is it easy to pour in and out water, is it a whistle kettle or not, is it maintenance free or does it need care? The sizes shown on the kettle are the manufacturer's claim of the total capacity up to the brim, not necessarily of the quantity of water that is safe to boil in them. It is generally safest to fill only to the bottom of the spout opening, so that boiling water does not spit out of the spout, whether or not the spout is covered. You can safely fill a little higher in kettles with wider, longer spouts. Look for the recommended fill level in the descriptions of the kettles which is marked with lines on the kettle body.
