There is build-in temperature control enabling you to step away and brew your favorite drink at the right temperature without tea of burning the drink.  It is equipped with 6 preset temperature settings suing the simple one-touch control on the handle!

6. Secura Water Kettle

The next travel kettle is the Secura 1.8 Quart Stainless Steel Kettle! The original stainless steel double wall electric kettle. This hot water electric kettle comes with 100% stainless steel interior. This includes stainless steel post, stainless steel lid , stainless steel spout and a stainless steel rim! Thats a lot of stainless steel! No plastic comes in contact with hot water! It is very safe and healthy drinking water. It is BPA free touch exterior and a no chance scalding hazard. Saves energy and safe to use! It is an ideal electric tea kettle with double wall construction so that when water boils, it is quicker and the water stays warm longer! There is also a 2 year warranty and it is ETL approved. Practically all the electric kettles on the market claim to have a "stainless steel interior," yet neglect to mention about a plastic lid. Although that lid is not in direct contact with the boiling water, the steam that rises will condensate on the lid and then drip back down into your water. In my perspective, indirect contact is equivalent to direct contact. Although manufacturers claim that any plastic that they use is "BPA-free," they fail to mention that plastic contains other components that have even more detrimental synthetic estrogenic effects than BPA. I believe that hot steam coming into contact with the plastic everyday for years will degrade the plastic material and result in "leakage". The Secura pour spout also is all steel and has a little steel lip to prevent any water coming into contact with the plastic exterior housing.


7. OXO Good Grips Kettle

Kettle boils up to 1.75 L of water faster than the microwave and safer than the stovetop, and water is heated and held for 30 minutes at your preferred temperature for tea or coffee.  The backlit screen and one-dial interface allow you to easily choose the exact temperature in Degree Fahrenheit or Celsius, and let you know when chosen temperature is reached.  It is durable, BPA-free borosilicate glass for thermal shock protection and water level visibility. The kettle is cord-free for easy transport when removed from 360 Degree swivel base, and has convenient ounce and milliliter markings allowing for precise measuring. It is non-slip, comfortable handle provides a secure grip and remains cool to the touch, and lid opens slowly to control the release of steam and prevent hot water splatter . Reusable, perforated stainless steel filter strains water while you pour and is removable for easy cleaning. What makes this better than the others? First the handle. See that sharply-angled bend towards the bottom? When you're pouring out a full pitcher of boiling water, you grab it below that bend and it gives you the perfect angle while keeping your hand as far from the steam as possible. Seriously, it's a real advantage over the others which have curved handles that you grab nearer the top. Second is capacity.  The pitcher is marked "MAX" at just over 60oz, but in reality you can fill a full 64 oz half-gallon with no problem. Perfect for making a whole gallon of iced tea.General functionality. Boils water FAST without heating the house. The switch is very intuitive and amazingly reliable: it will always get your water to a rolling boil, keep it there for about 10 seconds, then switch off. The "click" is satisfyingly audible and of course the light goes off as well.
