Here Are The Top 10 Best Stainless Steel Kettles 2017


Stainless steel electric kettles remain a popular kitchen appliance even though plastic models provide an alternative that is lighter, cheaper, and easier to manufacture. Recent studies have shown the risk of chemical contamination when plastic comes into contact with hot water. This has led to some people preferring plastic-free and BPA-free kitchenware.

A big advantage of stainless steel kettles, over those made of plastic or glass, is that they do not discolor and do not retain the taste or odor of liquids heated in them. Because of its metal construction, a stainless steel electric kettle is inherently durable and is a breeze to clean. The polished (or sometimes brushed) exterior is a look that many people find attractive.

Browse through our list of the newest models of stainless steel kettles. Go for a carafe that does not feature a water level window if you prefer it to be plastic-free (but keep in mind that some water-level windows are made of BPA-free plastics), and double-walled so that it remains relatively cool to the touch even during operation.
