Thermo Pot vs Jug Kettle

Updated on December 15, 2017

Thermo Pot vs Jug Kettle - Which Is Better?

Most of us use drinking hot water at different times of the day. It is either to make a hot drink for ourselves or for mixing baby formula and other baby foods if we have small children at home. Using a thermo pot is the best way to have hot water available almost immediately.

I love a cup of tea. Anyone who is a tea drinker will tell you that a good cup of tea requires really hot water. I have a flask which I fill up with hot boiling water every morning but after a few hours that water is not really that hot. I hate having to purposely boil a kettle of water just to make a cup of tea even if it is jug kettle.

A thermo pot is a combination of an electric kettle, a hot water flask and a hot water dispenser. I think it is a convenient kitchen appliance every home should have.

The downside of keeping the water hot the whole day is that it may waste electricity. This would be offset by the convenience of having hot water instantly and not having to boil jugs of it throughout the day especially with a large family and small children around.

Maybe You Don't Like The Thermo Pot

Do You Prefer the Jug Kettle?

The one good feature of the jug kettle is that it boils water fast. The capacity is small, usually about 1-2 quarts. Most jug kettles are cordless with a powerful 1500-watt heating element. They are small and lightweight compared to the normal electric kettle.

Most jug kettles are also fairly cheap to buy.

Some of the features of the jug kettle include:

- Boils up to 60 ounces of water twice as fast as a microwave oven.

- Locking lid with opening trigger button

- Illuminated switch; easy-grip handle

- Water-level indicator; boil-dry protection and automatic cut-off for safety

The first known kettle-shaped utensil was found in Mesopotamia between 3500 and 2000 BCE.

The First Electric Kettle

The first electric kettle with a built-in heating element was introduced in 1922 by the Swan Company. This design grew in popularity. Unfortunately, kettles would often boil dry if left unattended and sometimes resulted in electric shocks.

The first automatic electric kettle overcame this fault and was manufactured by Russell Hobbs, a company established in the UK in the 1950s.
