How to choose an electric Kettle

An electric kettle is one of the most basic appliances in any home but strangely, there are a number of factors worth considering when purchasing one. Lowes has plenty of kettles to choose from and of course, with a Lowes Printable Coupon, you can save money on your purchase. So, just what should you consider when buying a new electric kettle?


One of the top things to consider when choosing an electric kettle is speed, in fact, the speed in which a kettle boils water, in general, is the top reason why an electric kettle is so popular. Most kettles heat water to boiling in about three or four minutes and some can boil enough for a cup of tea or coffee in around a minute and a half. Some kettles are quicker than others and it is really just a matter of looking at different models and if that extra one minute is important to you then choose a kettle that boils water faster.


The amount of water you can boil is important to some people. If you have a large family and make pots of tea or coffee or simply make lots of drinks that need hot water at any given time a larger capacity kettle should be considered. Remember, a larger kettle with more water takes longer to boil.  If you only ever need to boil enough water for a cup or two of coffee or tea then you need to make sure your kettle can boil small quantities or you can simply buy a smaller kettle.

Brand and Style

To many people the brand of an appliance is important. You may prefer one brand over another because you trust that brand. Underneath all electric kettles are basically the same.  This now leads us to style. Only a few years ago all kettles looked almost identical but today there is so much variety from basic plastic jugs through stainless steel through glass with different coloured LED lighting. Today, your electric kettle can be a work of art in your kitchen and for some people that is pretty much what it is.


The Final consideration is cost. Electric kettles can start at under $15 and with these cheaper kettles don’t expect much in the way of looks and features, these kettles are basic but do the job. Certain brands cost more and as you get to the more stylish end of the kettle range expect to pay more. And then, of course, come to high-tech kettles, smart kettles that boil as you walk in the door and so on, these cost upwards of $100.
