Chef's Choice Cordless 677
Best electric tea kettle
Reviewers say this Chef's Choice electric kettle is everything most people need a kettle to be: quick-boiling, nice looking and easy to use. Users say it's very easy to pour, and a concealed heating element helps prevent mineral deposit buildup, which makes cleaning easier. The Chef's Choice kettle heats water to boiling in about five minutes. Its exterior does become warm to the touch, but not extremely hot, and we did read complaints that some units didn't work out of the box or broke quickly, but overall, this electric kettle gets better reviews than any other in its price range. It has a 7-cup capacity and automatic shut-off feature.
