The 10 Best kettles
Friday 04 May 2012
There's a feeling of real quality with this Magimix kettle, which is solid, shiny and stylish, as well as being quick and able to boil just one mug of water at a time.
The Philips Energy Efficient jug kettle is well built, speedy and a great choice for smaller households as it can boil as little as a single cupful of water.
Part of a set, this jug kettle isn't as quick as some at boiling water, but it's energy-efficient and has excellent controls. And the limescale filter is effective.
Standing on its 360° base, this chic-looking toughened-glass kettle features a 3kW rapid-boil function and 1.6-litre capacity – enough for about eight cups.
Which? says Breville's new Opula is one of the best kettles it's tested in years and it's easy to see why. It boasts clear markings and a great limescale filter.
Add a dash of colour with this polka-dot-design. It takes just two minutes and 25 seconds to boil a litre of water, yet it's significantly quieter than most kettles.
7. Le Creuset
There's something satisfying about the whistle of a traditional stove-top kettle, particularly if you have a rustic kitchen. This is stylish and suitable for all hobs.
8. Russell Hobbs
The Savannah kettle has a sleek finish and a LED light that lets you know when it's been switched on. Robust, and the auto-switch-off takes less than a second.
This kettle provides speedy boiling and energy efficiency. Available in a variety of colours, its only problem is that it picks up fingermarks easily.
The Styline kettle has a variable temperature control, so you can select the perfect brewing temperature for that green tea or exotic blend of coffee.
