About this deal

Safety features– Safety features such as illuminating when it’s on and cool to the touch are extremely useful to prevent burning. After drinking enough tea to last a lifetime (and a few coffees) we got a real sense of what to expect from a quiet kettle. Even though they’re not a necessity, they work wonders restoring peace and quiet to your kitchen. Good capacity– Having a kettle which holds a good amount of water is a positive for those who make more than one from the same boil. One very basic thing to look out for is how a kettle is filled: a button-operated flip-top lid is worth having as it means you don’t need to put your hand anywhere near the spout (or any steam coming out of it) when you’re refilling it.

Quiet boil– Manufacturers generally don’t tell us the decibel level of their quiet kettles. This makes how quiet a kettle is very subjective, in part because a kettle has various noises so a specific number of quietness won’t be very accurate. Fancy something a little different? The Russell Hobbs Illuminating Glass Kettle stands out thanks to its unique physical design, as well as a few clever design elements. In use, the Illuminating Kettle, as its name would suggest, lights up its body and the water inside with a row of pleasant blue LEDs. The kettle is also capacious at 1.7l, has a one-button pop-up lid and bears a clear green marker on its body, which indicates how much water is needed for a single cup, helping you avoid water and energy waste. Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed in the base to allow for easy cleaning. And we would avoid buying any cheap kettle that has a mains cable connected directly to the jug itself, as the slot-in stand design of most modern kettles is far safer.Finally, think about noise. The difference between our quietest and loudest kettles, which measured in at 52 and 63 decibels, is considerable, although everyone’s tolerance to noise is different. Kettles aren’t the most high-tech of kitchen items, but it’s worth looking out for safety features such as an auto shut-off function – should you accidentally put too little water in the kettle, this will stop it boiling dry. Rapid Boil Zone - Utilising modern rapid boil technology, it can boil 1 cup (around about 235ml) in 45 seconds.

Other design elements of the Styline we like include its four temperature settings (70°C, 80°C, 90° and boiling), half hour keep warm function, soft-open lid, large viewing window with clear measurement markings and smooth-pouring spout. Finally, when it comes to boil speed, the Styline’s 3,000W heating element means it’s as swift as any of the other similarly powered kettles on our list. Push Button Lid Opener - The lid is opened by a simple push button mechanism, allowing for easy filling. One of the more expensive kettles on our list, the Zwilling Enfinigy Pro justifies its lofty price tag with an ultra-modern design, commendable suite of features and solid performance. This sleek, space age kettle placed highly in both our exterior temperature and heat retention tests. Its peerless dual-wall insulation helped it maintain an outside temperature of just 29.4°C in use, while keeping the water inside at 94.6°C five minutes after boiling. In terms of functionality, the Enfinigy Pro boasts variable temperature settings ranging from 40°C to 100°C and a 30-minute keep warm function, all programmable via the touch buttons on its base.

Specification

This kettle is a stunning addition to any kitchen worktop. It is available in two striking colours, midnight grey and red. These kettles also match perfectly with the coordinating Luna toaster. This kettle has a window to easily measure the level of water inside, where you can see if more needs to be added. It also comes with illumination, so the light will stay on during the boiling time. This is similar to the Russell Hobbs Mode kettle, where the spout will also light up while boiling. Kettle with Fast Boil Technology Overall, there is no better value for money than the 23211 Luna. It not as high-end as our #2 choice, but comparing price, style and dB level… there really isn’t a better choice. Being able to brew one cup in 45 seconds, this kettle is anything but slow. Boiling one cup at a time also “saves up to 66% energy” compared to a full boil.

Boil-dry technology comes as standard (as with many on our list) and a 360 degree base increases it’s ease of use. Matching its appearance, the Kenwood’s test results were equally calm, with a peak loudness measurement of just 53.3dB. Its 3,000W heating element also didn’t disappoint, recording a time of 2 mins 20 secs in our one litre boil speed test. What’s more, its peak exterior temperature in use was just 54.6°C, which sits firmly in the warm-but-safe range, meaning no burnt fingers. Other benefits of the Dusk include its 1.7l capacity and wide, smooth-pouring spout. Equipped with a 3KW replaceable element, this kettle will last as long as you need. Simply replace with element to prolong it’s life. It also comes with a measuring scale at either side, so whichever way you have it faced, you’ll know exactly how much water you’ve added. Aesthetics aside, the Artisan also proved itself in our tests. It took just 2 mins 22 secs to boil 1l of water, which is on par with the rest of the 3,000W models tested. It also excels when it comes to keeping the noise down. During boiling, it only reached a maximum of 52.2dB, making it the quietest kettle on our list. What’s more, once the water’s boiled, there’s no worrying about burning your fingers on the sides. The outside of the Artisan reached an exterior temperature of just 33°C, owing to its dual-walled insulation. Equipped with three choices of colours; grey, red and copper… the 23211 Luna is a well designed kettle. We went for the stylish moonlight grey option. There is also an option to buy a matching toaster and coffee maker but we left those out for now.

The kettle is 15 cm across the base, so it’s not a slim kettle by any means. There’s also been a few complaints of rust starting to build up so keep that in mind as well. Overall, if you’re looking for a slightly different look we can’t recommend this enough. It fairs well against other Russell Hobbs kettles, and offers a more traditional look. Quiet boil and rapid boil are great features, and one’s a couldn’t live without now that we’ve tried them! Similar to the Fearne by Swan, the 20460 comes with a 360 degree base making it ideal for left or right handed people. I’m a lefty myself so that’s a big plus for me… anything that makes moving boiling water easier is always good. With a capacity of 1.7 litres like most on our list, there’ll be plenty of water for a round of teas and coffee for the family and visitors.
