Let’s heat things up with the best electric kettles around
As a British man living in the US, it amazes me that not everyone has an electric kettle. They are one of the first things we buy when we move out of our parent’s house. Anyway, if you are a coffee or tea drinker and use an electric kettle, you will want to have a look at our favorites. I want you to know I had to drink a lot of tea to write this article for you. It was hard, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp
This kettle may be the only kettle you will ever need. With six separate heating settings, you can choose which temperature you need for your particular hot drink. Whether you need a full bull for hot, black tea, or just 200 degrees Fahrenheit for your french press coffee, this kettle has an instant button to help you. The brush stainless steel is a timeless look, and the inside of the pot glows with a soft blue light.

BELLA Electric Tea Kettle Black Floral
For those of us who like to stay away from the flat stainless steel that often abounds in kitchen appliances, they can be little choice. This beautiful electric kettle looks more like an old-fashioned teapot with its long curved spout, and the floral design makes it stand out as a fashion piece.

COSORI Electric Kettle
If you want to have that modern look with a large capacity kettle, then the Cosori all-glass kettle is perfect. It has a large 1.7 liter (57oz) capacity and is made almost entirely of glass. The blue LED light up as the pot is boiling, and you can enjoy watching the water bubble and boil as it heats up.

For the pour over crowd
Bodum Melior Gooseneck Electric Water Kettle
If you are anything like my wife, congratulations, you are awesome! You also probably like pour-over coffee a lot. One of the things that used to annoy her is the large spout on a standard kettle that can easily break the filters on a pour-over coffee carafe. Since using this thin necked kettle from Bodum, that hasn’t happened, and she can make sure the coffee is evenly covered with water. It’s a beautiful looking kettle that works perfectly.

Make some steam
An electric kettle is, in my view, a must-have in any kitchen. Being able to heat water rapidly is helpful for everyone. Whether you are making the perfect pour-over coffee with the Bodum Gooseneck Kettle or you just need something simple to cook your cup noodle with we have a kettle for you.
I like the Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp for an all-round great kettle. The different temperature buttons make hitting the perfect temperature easy, and the large size lets you make tea for the whole family.
