Electric Tea Kettles vs. Stovetop Tea Kettles
At Sur La Table, you’ll generally find two types of tea kettles: stovetop tea kettles and electric tea kettles. Not sure what type of tea kettle is right for you? Consider some of the benefits of each one to determine which you prefer.
Electric tea kettles often feature an automatic shut-off, which allows you to safely heat less water without worrying about burning your teapot. Modern electric tea kettles also provide settings for temperature control and can be used in other areas besides the kitchen, such as at your desk at work. Some new electric tea kettle models also feature preset modes for different types of tea, including green, oolong, white tea or herbal, as well as automatic warming functions that will help your tea stay warmer for longer periods of time. Many customers love that some electric tea kettles, such as the Sur La Table Digital Kettle, have automatic infusers that ensure the best tea flavor with each use.
Stovetop kettles have their benefits, too. Many people enjoy the ritual of using a classic kettle, including the whistle as the steam starts to escape. Stovetop tea kettles can boil water to a higher temperature than most electric kettles. Stovetop teakettles are usually more affordable as well, and work in settings without electricity, like camping. Stovetop kettles can be made from different kinds of materials, including copper and stainless steel. Check the manufacturer’s specifications: some of these stainless steel teapots are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
The Best Teakettle Brands
It’s clear that both electric and stovetop kettles each have unique advantages. But which brand should you buy? There are plenty of great options at Sur La Table, including durable, colorful ceramic kettles by Le Creuset, which are sure to brighten your kitchen. The sleek, stainless steel design of an All-Clad kettle is great for a more contemporary look. If you want some of the most advanced features and innovative capabilities, check out a Breville tea kettle, such as the Breville IQ Kettle. This smart electric tea kettle is a customer favorite at Sur La Table, and features five preset brewing temperatures, a water level indicator, and adequate temperature retention for 20 minutes. These and other popular kitchen brands are available when you shop at Sur La Table for tea necessities.
