Over the years, kettles have evolved from the traditional kettle that boiled water over the stove into modern versions with water filtering for the purest brew, jug kettles, triangle designs and a multitude of colours and styles to suit your space. Modern kettles are fast, easy to use, energy-efficient and precise. It might seem like there’s not much to buying the right kettle, but there are a number of considerations that you might not be aware of. Firstly, speed is a key factor - for most people the speed at which your kettle boils water is important. Temperature options for tea connoisseurs can make all the difference, for example, while your black tea might taste best with boiled water, your green tea will need a lower temperature to bring out the flavours. Cost is also important, prices vary hugely depending on your preferences and size can vary - do you usually just make a cup of tea for one or a pot of tea for 4 and coffee for 2? Your daily habits will dictate what size of kettle you need.
