Here Are The Top 10 Best Variable Temperature Kettles 2020

The water kettle has come a long way from the stovetop model your grand'ma used and the basic electric kettle your parents thought was state-of-the-art. Modern variable temperature elctric kettles are the wave of the future because water temperature is critical in bringing out the best qualities of tea and coffee. Coffee must be brewed at 200F and most tea varieties require brew temperatures lower than the boiling point of 212F. For instance, according to inpursuitoftea.com, white tea best brews at 165F while black tea requires 205F or more.

Aside from preset or programmable temperature settings, variable temperature models commonly have several other advanced features. They often have a keep-warm timer -- to keep the water at the set temperature for a given amount of time -- or programmable auto-start timers. Tea-centric models also have a tea basket and a tea-steeping countdown timer.

So if you are not kidding with the quality of your tea or coffee, make sure your next electric kettle has variable temperature settings.

The Comfee MK-17G01B-E5, which has earned a combined rating of (rating temporarily unavailable) stars from the reviews that our system had analyzed, can be programmed in 10-degree increments. This may not be as precise as a few other models in this subcategory (which can accommodate five-degree increments), but most of its buyers nonetheless seem very pleased with how it works. The programmable warm-keeping function is a highly-raved about feature, as well.

One of the first things that impressed many of its customers is the glass pot which, along with the overall construction, reportedly felt durable and well-made. The tea infuser being placed optimally for water contact is a nice bonus for tea-drinkers, as well. Also, if you would like to narrow your search to electric teapots, we have a page here on AlphaChooser that's dedicated for the top electric tea kettles.

Some people have reported having some trouble with the user manual, saying that the instructions therein seem to have been written by someone who's not very versed with the English language. Specifically, certain reviewers have had a hard time understanding the instructions regarding how to turn the kettle off, so they usually remedy this by simply unplugging it after the desired boiling and keep-warm time had elapsed. However, this issue proved to be very small compared to the positive characteristics of this variable temperature electric teapot -- with one reviewer mentioning that with only the above-mentioned issue to worry about, this Comfee kettle still ends up better than all the other models she's tried .

Comfee MK-17G01B-E5 Variable Temp Kettle

This variable-temperature stainless steel kettle earned a (rating temporarily unavailable)-star rating from a total of reviews, based on the analysis made by our system scanner. With its 6-temperature feature, majority of its verified users (most of them are tea enthusiasts) are satisfied alongside the keep-warm function, which holds the desired temperature for up to 2 hours.

Most of the reviewers who have ditched their old-yet-indispensable kettles, have purchased it for its resemblance to their old ones. Apparently, follow-up reviews of these users confirm that form follows function, adding its attractive vibe to their kitchen counters. One user mentioned that "it is lightweight," which benefits those who struggle to lift heavy appliances. Other compliments go on its cool-touch handle and its claim as a fast-boil kettle.

From another viewpoint, some of the buyers (who use the same temperature setting everyday) are disappointed about not having the option to save the last programmed temperature. This may be a shout-out to Epica (just in case they plan to do an upgraded version), since majority of these buyers still ended up with good recommendation. As we move on to the real drawbacks, dissatisfied users complain that its stainless steel jar gets way too hot after boiling. Although it has been mentioned that the handle remains cool, this is a major downside for a household of elderly people with potentially burn-prone thin skin. A considerable number of users whine about the lack of a beeping sound when the boiling is done, but some early-bird folks are equally happy for not having one (to avoid waking up everyone else).

The rest of the reviews talk about its water-level measurement showing "liters," compared to the usual liter-and-cup markings, while few others wish that the lid is removable for easy-reach cleaning. Based on our comprehensive review, this kettle did not earn any special rank.
