A cordless electric tea kettle from brands like Cuisinart, Chef's Choice, T Fal and Breville, just to name some, provides a fast, convenient method for heating up water without the hassles of an attached cord. Cordless models sit atop a base to which the cord is attached. Once the water is thoroughly hot, simply lift the kettle off of its base and maneuver freely. The best cordless kettles feature a base with a 360-degree platform. That means you can set the kettle back on its base from any direction without having to lock it into place.
Power and Capacity
The vast majority of cordless electric tea kettles feature a fully-concealed, stainless steel heating element that runs between 1,500 and 2,200 Watts. Hidden beneath the stainless steel floor of the kettle, this particular design allows for easy cleaning. In terms of volume, smaller electric kettles have a 1.0 to 1.5-liter capacity, while larger models hold anywhere from 1.5 to 2.0 liters of hot water.
Common features of cordless electric kettles include anti-scale filters to prevent the buildup of mineral deposits, one or more convenient viewing windows to see how much water remains and a stay-cool thermoplastic handle. Select models feature multiple brew settings ranging from 175 to 212 degrees, perfect for all types of teas.
