Best Choices of Water Kettles

Updated on November 7, 2010

We all use water kettles. Whether we're heating water for a hot drink or a myriad of other reasons, we all turn to the kettle as the quickest method of heating up small amounts of water. Over the years, the designs have moved away from the old whistling kettles to the more common place electric models.

Some are corded, others not and all are designed around ergonomics, appeal and function. All are, in their own way, a well used kitchen gadget and, much like kitchen food scales, one that most uf us take for granted -until we want to purchase a new one.

For that reason, the five best water kettles are featured below. Some are the most popular, others top rated but all share a common denominator - they're all superb value for money.
