This past summer my wife and I were visiting our daughter in her apartment near her college in Maine. I noticed what looked like some type of water pitcher in her kitchen. After taking a closer look, I noticed that it was an electric water kettle that she uses to heat up water for pour over coffee, tea, hot cocoa, oatmeal, and soup.
It was sitting on a 360 degree base that provides the power and the electric kettle can be easily removed from the base for pouring. My daughter raved about the unit and I thought how ideal an electric kettle would be in our kitchen at home.
Little did I know, but she has actually owned this Oster Stainless Steel Electric Kettle for a while and especially loves using it in her dorm room during the school year. She told me that she and her roommates use it on a daily basis. One thing that she really loved about the electric water kettle was the keep-warm feature which allows you to have warm water at all times. This electric tea kettle, as a safety feature, also has an automatic shutoff when the water reaches a boil.
As you can imagine, since these are very popular appliances, there are a multitude of other electric kettles available in the marketplace. Two other highly-rated electric kettles are the Aroma 1.5 Liter Cordless Water Kettle and Bonavita 1.0 Liter Electric Kettle. You simply cannot go wrong with any of these models.
