Our 5 Favorite Electric Kettles to Get the Water Going

if you don’t have an electric kettle in your kitchen, you’re missing out. Not only are these appliances slightly more energy-efficient than using a stovetop, but they’re portable and boil water more quickly. These days, electric kettles come in various sizes with different kinds of spouts, and you’ll often find models with customizable temperature settings too—allowing you to set the perfect brew temp for your pour-over coffee or loose-leaf tea.

We’ve been using nearly 10 models in our lives over the past year to find out what’s the best and what’s junk. These are our favorite electric kettles worthy of your countertop.
