Our product experts have tested countless kettles to to separate the best from the worst.


Whether you're making a morning cuppa, or enjoying a tasty hot chocolate before bed, kettles are something we all use day in, day out. In fact, we Brits brew up a whopping 100 million cups of tea alone on the average day. Since they get so much use, you'll naturally want to be sure you're making the right choice when purchasing a new kettle. Our rigorous review and testing process lets us dig beneath the manufacturer’s hype to discover the truth about the latest kettles.

There are a number of things to think about when looking for a new kettle. From maximum capacity to safety features like boil-dry protection, there's more to consider than you might imagine. If you have a larger family, then a kettle with a larger capacity will help you ensure you can make everyone a cuppa without having to boil water multiple times. On the other hand, for those times when you just want a quick brew for yourself, a minimum water indicator lets you only boil the amount you really need- saving you both time and electricity. Thankfully, one thing you don't need to worry about is the price. We monitor our prices daily to make sure you get the best value. We also offer a Price Match Promise so if you do find it cheaper elsewhere, we’ll match it.

So, read on to discover our top picks!

What we look for in a kettle:


  • Value for Money
    From the most budget-friendly models to designer brands, we test hard to make sure each kettle is worth its price tag.
  • Noise
    You don't want kitchen conversation to be drowned out by a noisy kettle, so we analyse noise levels to ensure you can enjoy some peace and quiet.
  • Speed
    Stopwatch in hand, our experts test how long it takes each kettle to boil both its full capacity and just one cup.
