The iKettle is surely one of the techest kettles on the planet, as it comes with a companion app (Android, iOS, WP8) which enables one to boil one’s water from anywhere on one’s home wifi. Spiffing. The iKettle also features 4 temperature control settings, so green tea is never overdone and coffee never lukewarm.
It’s also got a ‘stay warm’ setting and a nice brushed stainless shell. There are even a wide range of insulating funky coloured shells to update your kitchen 'look' for each season. You’ll never tire of triggering your morning cuppa from bed either, trust us. The Butler's employment union will be up in arms over this one...
Sage Smart Kettle
Sage claims that the Smart Kettle lets you have more control over your water boiling temperature, by fitting it with 5 separate settings. These settings are designed for drinks such as green, white, oolong and black tea as well as for coffee, making sure they are prepared the best way possible. There’s also a soft open lid, stemming the excess steam explosion common with regular kettles.
Nothing signals the imminent arrival of a cuppa more than the whistling of a boiled kettle. Ok, well that may have been true in Victorian Britain, but you can now recreate that feeling with this Aga kettle. The 4mm encapsulated base helps increase boiling time, while it works with a whole load of hobs – from induction to ceramic.

Looking super modern, this kettle is far more futuristic than some of the traditional models on our list. The transparent sides allow you to gaze upon your boiling water, while the double layer of insulation keeps the water hotter for longer.
Shiny and sleek, this 1.5l kettle continues Dualit’s design language that has been common place in their slew of kitchen appliances. The spout has been specially designed to pour smoothly, while the rapid boil features ensures your water is piping hot as quickly as possible.
Eco Product creation
We all do it – boil a full kettle even though we know we only need enough water for one cup. The Eco Product Creation is looking to put an end to this, heating only the amount of water that is needed. Helping the environment in the process. There’s also three temperature settings – specifically designed for tea, coffee and boiling.
This polished stainless steel kettle features a ThermoSystem design, which means it stays quieter and keeps the sides much cooler than a regular kettle. It boils quickly, the spout is a smooth pourer and the water level is lit up to show you how much H20 you’ve got left.
Morphy Richards Brita Filter Kettle
The headline feature on this kettle is the built-in Brita water filter, which gets rid of all the impurities in your H20, leaving you with a tastier end product. Boiling is snappy, plus it’ll let you know when it’s time to change your filter.
A lot more high-tech than your average kettle, the Bibo Classic is a lot more expensive too. You can actively control the water temperature, be it chilled or boiling, and it’s accurate to within 1 degree. There’s an array of timers and even the particularly useful childlock feature, which will ensure your young kids won’t accidentally scald themselves.
