Breville Ikon Electric Kettle

Pros
  • Quick boil
  • Automatic shut-off
  • Comfortable grip
  • Large capacity
Cons
  • Exterior can get hot
  • Electrical connection to base

The Breville Ikon Electric Kettle is a large kettle, holding 1.7 liters (54 ounces, or 7 cups). If you have a lot of water to heat, this is your model. The cover is hand-brushed stainless steel, and the handle is made out of plastic. Most reviewers like the Breville Ikon Electric Kettle's fast boil time, automatic shut-off and comfortable grip of the handle, which is made of plastic to ensure an easy and cool pour. However, many consumers say that the stainless-steel exterior can get very hot when in use. Another reviewer also noted some problems with the electrical connection between the base and the kettle. At an estimated price of $75, this kettle is much more expensive than some better reviewed models, such as the Chef's Choice Cordless 677 (*Est. $50) .
