    1. A BPA-free Cosori electric tea kettle made from borosilicate glass which resists scratching and scuffing and keeps plastics away from any boiling water.

    Capacity: 7+ cups

    The durable design makes it one of the ideal gifts that go really well with a cup of tea.

    Promising review: "A lot of thought and care went into designing this kettle. It has an extremely wide opening at the top for easy filling and cleaning. The only materials that ever touch water are borosilicate glass and stainless-steel. The lights in the base act as a glaringly obvious 'this is probably hot' warning, while also looking good. The carafe is very attractive and should be quite durable considering its material. My only complaints are that I wish the heating element turned off just a little bit quicker after the water comes to a boil, and the base that the carafe sits on could be a little heavier. But those are just me being picky in an attempt to find things to be critical about." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $35.97 (available in two colors).

    2. A Susteas stove-top, whistling tea kettle constructed from surgical stainless steel that goes for an old-timey, dare we say, almost steam-punk feel, while it steams up some hot water!

    Black matte tea kettle with brass-colored spout, lid, and handle

    Capacity: 10+ cups

    Promising review: "Great tea kettle! Not only lovely to look at with its British country cottage feel and antique brass accents, but this kettle does what I bought it to do--makes great tea and keeps me from burning down the house. The whistle is so loud I could hear it over running water and fairly loud music! Holds a substantial amount of water, and I adore the matte black cannonball reservoir. The brass on the front part of the handle does get hot, so do your lifting easily from the black part which stays at a comfortable temperature for pouring. A+++" —LostKeys

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in three colors).

    3. A HadinEEon electric kettle with a blue LED indicator light to notify you when your water's boiling. It also aims to boil water in at least six minutes, so you won't be kept waiting long for a late-night cup of tea.


    Capacity: 4+ cups

    People actually swear by these kitchen gadgets too, if you're looking for more things to upgrade your space.

    Promising review: "This electric kettle boils water very quickly in about 6-7 mins. I like the LED lights because I know that it is boiling water when it is on. I also like the quality of the glass and the fact that I can see through the inside. When there is hard water stains, I can just pour some vinegar and boil it and let it sit in the kettle for about 15 mins, then rinse it out and it's just like brand new." —Alan

    Get it from Walmart for $31.99.

    4. A hand-crafted, borosilicate glass stove top-safe glass teapot with removable infuser (for loose or blooming teas) that also happens to be microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

    Capacity: 4+

    The clear sleek design earns it the label of kitchen products so gorgeous they deserve to stay on the counter.

    Promising review: "I wanted a teapot that I could use in the microwave or on the stove. I was a little concerned about the fragility of this beautiful glass item, but I shouldn't have worried. The handle is not as delicate as it might appear in the picture and is plenty sturdy enough for daily use and I am particularly pleased with the fact that the spout does not drip at all. I am very happy with this teapot, and might just pick up another one for that dreadful day when I break this one. Also, the handle doesn't get hot, even though the water is at a full boil. You never need a hot pad to remove this from the heat. I love that!" —Lucille Harrington

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    5. A portable, stainless-steel AmazonBasics electric hot water kettle with an automatic shut-off function and a wrap-around cord for compact storage so you can keep things simple, safe, and uncluttered around the kitchen.

    Capacity: 4+ cups

    Promising review: "THIS IS THE COOLEST GOSH DANG KETTLE. Listen, I bought this thing cuz I needed hot water, and I needed it fast. Simple enough. It's also quieter than my previous kettle, but this isn't just any old ordinary kettle my friend, oh no. Have you ever thought to yourself, boy I wish I could keep a mini ocean wave inside my home somehow? WELL NOW YOU CAN! Watching the water boil through the glass, lit by the electric blue light, was fascinating enough that me and two roommates stared at it in awe — and the finale? When it's reached boiling temperature, it looks like a MINIATURE TSUNAMI!!! Buy this electric kettle. Buy it now.." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $30.74.

    6. A dishwasher-safe, borosilicate glass stove top whistling tea kettle (clearly stated right on the front) so you can get that "at-the-diner vibe" without ever having to leave home (or leave a tip).

    A glass tea kettle with a black handle that was the words "Whistling Kettle" printed on its base

    Capacity: 6 cups

    Promising review: "I'd been looking to replace my old leaky tea kettle for a while. I have a glass top stove, so I wanted something that would sit flat on the burner. Finding one that I liked and had good reviews wasn't that easy. I did quite a bit to research and came across this one. Wasn't sure about it, but the price was right. So far, I love it. No issues, it whistles as advertised, you can see the water and know when it needs cleaning. You do need to remove the top to pour, but I don't find it a problem. All in all, excellent purchase!" —Paula L.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    7. A Pykal whistling tea kettle constructed with five layers of stainless steel, aluminum, and iron and an "iCool" handle that can be touched mere seconds after your water finishes boiling. Also comes with two infusers.

    Capacity: 12 cups

    Promising review: "This is an excellent kettle, well-constructed, with excellent looks and function. Its handle does not overheat so that it may be picked up after the whistle stops without injury. I am most impressed with it and recommend it highly. An update: having used this for a month or so now, it is everything it claims to be. I especially like that the handle does not overheat so much that you can't pick it up without protection. Just wait a few seconds and it's fine. And it does look great on the stove. This kettle is it." —Stan from Virginia

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99.

    8. An energy efficient Mueller premium electric kettle so you can save time, money (on electricity and/or gas) while killing "almost all of bacteria and pathogens living" in your non-filtered water (so your tea tastes better).

    Capacity: 7+ cups

    Promising review: "I have a Kindergartener and my mornings are quite hectic trying to get myself ready for work, make sure she’s dressed, bags are packed, dog is fed and let out, lunches made, etc. The last thing I want to do in the middle of all that is keep an eye on a pan of water on the stove for my morning cappuccino. That’s where this comes in. I fill it to the lowest line, plug it in, flip the switch, and forget about it. I can continue doing my morning routine and once I’m finished my water is heated up and ready to go. My only complaint is the top lid, I wish it opened just a touch more for cleaning purposes but I like the kettle enough that I can overlook that." —Jennifer D.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    9. A Toptier Japanese cast iron teapot with stainless steel infuser for separating tea leaves from the water. Easy to clean too, no need for detergent, just wash with water.

    Capacity: 3–4 cups

    For the tea fan in your life, they may also appreciate these gifts for anyone who spends basically all their time in the kitchen.

    Promising review: "Adore this fancy teapot. It's a generous 2-3 tea drinker size, pours beautifully and retains heat for a good while, easy to clean and it was nicely made. I started using it the minute I got it. It is just the right size, and I love the color. Just in time for the cold months. I highly recommend it." —Shon

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in five sizes and 14 colors).

    10. A surgical-grade stainless-steel, whistling tea kettle with an infuser (for loose leaf teas) for those looking for an easy-to-clean mirror finish that's also rust-, corrosion-, dent-, and scratch-resistant and brews a serious cuppa.

    Capacity: 11 cups

    Promising review: "This is a really great tea kettle. It's stunning to look at and easy to use (not that a tea kettle usually presents an intellectual challenge, but this one just works really well). Love the aesthetic. My favorite characteristic is its weight. This is a substantial tea kettle. Not a wrist breaker but also not a cheap, lightweight piece of junk, either. Highly recommended!" —Amester17

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99.

    11. A Hamilton Beach Hamilton electric tea kettle that's all about safety with its auto shut-off function that helps keep the kettle from boiling dry, a stay-cool handle, a water-level window, a push-button lid to prevent any spilled tea (Don't worry Kermit, we're referring to the liquid kind).

    A bright red electric teak kettle with a black base and handle and a plastic measuring window

    Capacity: 7+ cups

    Promising review: "This is a very handy electric kettle that works perfectly and does everything I wanted it to do. 1. It comes to a rolling boil before shutting off, 2. has a window to show me how much water I'm pouring into it, 3. holds sufficient water to heat up and then fill my teapot, and 4. the lid stays open without my having to hold it open so it's easy to pour water into it. I can't think of anything else, but the point is, I'm totally all-round delighted with it." —Tessa

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in two colors).

    12. A stainless steel Belanko whistling tea kettle just as concerned with safety (thanks to its silicone-coated insulated handle and super-loud, can't miss it whistle) as it is with style (check out that exterior induction diamond design).

    Capacity: 10+ cups

    Promising review: "I never thought I would rave about the beauty of a tea kettle, but this kettle is gorgeous! It belongs in Architectural Digest, in a picture of a beautiful, mid-century modern kitchen. My daughter raved over it when she walked into the kitchen! It is truly a work of art! The body looks like a shiny golf ball, and the handle and lid look like exotic wood - except that they aren't wood, but a feels-great-to-your-hand wood look. It whistles beautifully and the handle is cool to the touch. No potholder required. Get one. Even if you don't need one. It will look great on your stove!" —Betty H. Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $34.59 (available in six colors).

    13. A stainless-steel interior and BPA-free plastic exterior Meison electric tea kettle with a "cool-touch" exterior and boil-dry protection to make pouring and cleaning it as safe and easy as possible. Auto shut-off too.

    Capacity: 4+ cups

    Promising review: "I love this tea kettle! I have been using my electric stove to boil water for tea, and besides taking so long, it also feels so wasteful somehow. This heats the water up quickly, shuts off automatically, and I don't have to worry about burning up the tea kettle on the burner, as has happened in the past. I love it. It's convenient, looks great on the counter, and doesn't take up too much room. We discovered this as an Airbnb where we were staying...and came home and ordered our own. And now I can't live without it." —sandishelton

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    14. A KitchenAid kettle, because sometimes you want to give a vibrant pop of color to your kitchen (lots of options of choose from). Constructed with a "C" handle for a comfortable grip and a thumb-press sprout for safe pouring.

    Capacity: 8 cups

    Promising review: "Love this kettle! The overall appearance is very comforting and yet sleek at the same time, a gorgeous addition to my kitchen decor. The whistle is a good design resulting in a smooth build-up that isn't piercing to the point of sending you running into the kitchen to make it STOP. After it has heated the water, I've had good luck going back for a refill or to top off my mug of tea as much as a half-hour later to find the water still nice and warm. I'm very happy with this purchase and use it every day." —Acacia Wildwood

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in eight colors).

    15. A stainless-steel Cuisinart electric tea kettle with preset heat settings for getting just the right temps for your preferred types of tea (green, white, oolong, herbal, black, as well as French press). A "keep warm" setting will do just that to your water for 30 minutes!

    Capacity: 7+ cups

    The convenient features may even have you looking for more kitchen products you'll probably wonder how you ever lived without.

    Promising review: "I use this thing daily for things including herbal, green, or black teas, oatmeal, or french press coffee. Okay, I admit I have used it for ramen noddles when I didn't want to cook. So far, I haven't had any of the lettering rubs off like in other reviews. It has always been consistent in temperature and can reach a boil surprisingly quickly. Before I had this, I would boil water on the stove like a barbarian. After having this kettle for almost a year, I don't think I could go back to the stove or even a lesser model. It makes mornings easy because I don't need to babysit it. It beeps at me when it's ready and screams at me when the water has boiled out." —Ligeia

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    16. A half-moon teapot you can remove the diffuser from for an easier transition to coffee. It also comes with a stainless steel filter for a simpler clean-up — and as a bonus, it's dishwasher safe too.

    Capacity: 5 cups

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this teapot. I use it almost every day! It is quite versatile which is perfect because I drink all kinds of tea from flowering to loose leaf to teabags and they all work well in this teapot. It is very cute and easy to clean. The flowering tea it came with was peach flavored and really good, I want some more!" —Deborah 

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in four colors).

    17. A stainless steel tea kettle speckled with white dots that remind us of a starry night for an ~out-of-this-world~ cup of tea. The stainless steel material is also rust and corrosion resistant for a longer-lasting design.

    Gray and white speckled tea kettle with gold accents on stovetop

    Capacity: 13 cups

    Promising review: "Just what I was looking for, a large kettle that I don't have to fill multiple times a day. I drink tea all day long and my old kettle was half the size and did not whistle which lead to many messes on the stove. This has stopped that completely. Works wonderfully and looks beautiful." —Robert Myers

    Get it from Amazon for $32.95 (available in 13 styles).

    18. A Brewista electric kettle sporting a gooseneck spout to add a touch of elegance to your kitchen counters and personalization features, including precise temperature control using the LCD panel to make your beverages the exact temp you want every time.

    Capacity: 3+ cups

    Promising review: "We’re loving this kettle. We upgraded to this after our previous kettle kicked the bucket. It’s a bit pricey, but definitely worth it if you will be using your kettle a lot. We are mainly a tea-drinking household, with coffee only every now and then. The Fellow Stag (probably the biggest competitor to this one, and at a similar price point) just pour so slow that filling a cup of tea to steep takes ages and it’s impossible to get a quick steep for gongfu style brewing. This one has a great pour speed though, which you can control very easily to pour fast or slow based on your needs. The temp control is excellent and it heats up in a flash, super fast! Love the preset temp and the quick boil button too. Really pleasing to use and feels well built and substantial. I love the beep to alert when heating is done so I don’t miss it. You can turn the beep off though if you prefer to have it stay quiet." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $159 (available in seven colors).

    19. A bright and cheery Ovente electric kettle that's BPA-free, cordless, and downright adorable, especially if your kitchen is lacking a pop of color. To make matters safer, it has an automatic shut-off feature and even comes with a removable, easy-to-clean filter. Did I mention it's under $20, too?

    Capacity: 7 cups

    Promising review: "I'd give this 10 stars if I could! It's absolutely the prettiest shade of pink I've ever seen (it's bubblegum pink). It works great, shuts off on it's own and it takes only a couple of minutes to boil a full 1.7 liters of water! This will fill about half a rubbermaid pitcher. The outside never gets even close to warm so it's safe no matter where you grab it. LOVE LOVE LOVE this for making ice tea and hot tea too!" –Mel From STL

    Get it from Amazon for $14.75+ (available in five colors). 

    20. The Corvo EKG Electric Kettle by Fellow, a sleek and splurge-worthy appliance ready to elevate your daily tea or coffee ritual. Among some of the many features at your disposal include temperature control, 1200 watts for quick heating, and a stainless steel body, so your cuppa will come out – dare I say "perfect?" – every time!

    Capacity: 3+ cups

    Promising review: "I love this kettle! Everything about it just feels right, and it looks great on my counter too. I don't need a pour-over spout for my preferred french press, and the Corvo spout is perfect for that and other general uses." –Michele M.

    Get it from Fellow for $159 (available in two styles). 

    Now go enjoy a nice hot cuppa and please, don't forget, pinkies out (always).
