Welcome to Friday Finds, a new feature on Mom Home Guide! On Fridays, I will be sharing and reviewing favorite products that I have tried. Many of these are items for the home that have made my life easier! Today I am sharing the details about a quick-boiling, snazzy looking electric tea kettle that I bought on Amazon and use daily! I love this tea kettle.
As a big tea drinker, having a reliable and quick tea kettle is key. For a while, I had a stovetop tea kettle. But somehow, the cover on the spigot melted, and I read online that some tea kettles can leak toxins into tea. I resorted to microwaving a cup of hot water in the microwave for my tea after that. But then I read that microwaving water for tea produces tea that is less than optimal. After a lot of research, I found the Mueller Premium 1500W Electric Kettle ($19.97).
Easy to Use Electric Tea Kettle
Using my new electric tea kettle is super easy to use. I just place the glass tea kettle on its base, and plug in the base. The kettle and its base doesn’t take up much room on my kitchen counter. I love the clean and streamlined look for this beautiful glass electric kettle.
To start water boiling in the kettle, I press the switch on the handle of the tea kettle. A beautiful blue light fills the kettle as it heats up. Once the water is sufficiently heated/boiled, the kettle turns itself off.
I love that I can boil the water for my tea and don’t have to watch the pot. Since the kettle turns itself off, I don’t have to worry about running out of water and heating the kettle dry. As a mom who is always multi-tasking, it’s great that this kettle will basically watch itself for me.
If I fill the entire tea kettle with water, it takes about 7 minutes for the water to completely boil. But I usually only fill the kettle with enough water for 1-2 cups of water, and it takes a lot quicker to boil.
The anti-slip, sturdy kettle makes it easy to place the kettle on its base and lift the kettle when the water has boiled. The kettle itself is cordless – only the base is corded. That means I can carry the kettle to the kitchen table if I like. The kettle is drip free when pouring.
To keep my kettle the cleanest, I usually brew my tea in my cup, as I mostly just drink a cup or two of tea at a time. If I were to brew several cups at a time, I’d probably brew it in one of the ceramic teapots that I have. (I am very protective of my beautiful new glass electric tea kettle.)
To fill the teapot, I just press the button on the top of the kettle, and the lid pops open. It opens at about 45 degrees. At first I had trouble filling the kettle at the water dispenser on my fridge, until my daughters showed me how to best place the kettle to fill it from the fridge. (The lid got in the way when I first tried it.)
There’s a fill line on the pot – it’s necessary to make sure the kettle isn’t filled over the fill line so it won’t overflow. (I’ve never had the kettle overflow, since I only make 1-2 cups at a time.)
I’ve had this electric teapot for a few months now and absolutely love it. I think the Mueller Premium 1500W Electric Kettle ($19.97) looks great while heating, too, with its cool blue light.
