This guide gives you essential information you need to know when choosing and buying a new electric kettle.

Kettle Size
Unless being used for travelling/holidays, an electric kettle for your home should have a capacity of at least 1.4 litres.

The higher the wattage of a kettle the more powerful it is and the quicker it will boil. Many kettles have a "rapid boil" function. If you want your hot drinks quickly the go for this.

Additional Features of Electric Kettles

Wide spout
This enables you to fill the kettle with water without the hassle of removing the lid. Look out for a non-drip spout too, an added safety feature.

Cool-touch casing
As a kettle can reach 100 degrees centigrade it is important to look for one that has "cool-touch casing". This considerably reduces the chances of an accident in the home.

Limescale filters
Water tastes better when limescale is filtered out. Look for a kettle with a removable limescale filter.

Concealed heating element
Whilst making a kettle easier to clean, a concealed element also increases the speed at which the water boils as the heat is dispersed more evenly.

As with most home products, electric kettles have greatly come down in price over the last few years. However, the better models with the features listed above will cost more than those without such features. Buy the best within your budget.

Before you purchase your new kettle be sure to check the warranty guarantee, these do vary between models and manufacturers. Choose a model that includes a warranty you are happy with.

As we can see there is a large range and a number of factors to consider when choosing a new electric kettle. Decide which features you want and set a budget. Choose the kettle that has the most number of features you want and is within your budget.
