Distinctive features


A wide range of ceramic electric kettles appeared on the market of household electrical goods not so long ago, but has already gained considerable popularity among buyers, and their attention to ceramic appliances is increasing every day.

A distinctive feature of a ceramic product is its appearance. Refined, designed in a modern style, with an interesting, diverse artistic painting, they are the first to attract the attention of the buyer.

Japanese floral motifs on a snow-white background, various shapes and a wide color palette – all these expressive features of a ceramic electric kettle will harmoniously fit into any interior, at the same time becoming its decoration.

The second feature of such models is the complete set with a pair of cups or a separate teapot.

The condition is optional, although it occurs quite often. Such unity will be a wonderful gift for any holiday, add an atmosphere of comfort, warmth to everyday gatherings.

As for the design features, ceramic appliances are equipped exclusively with disc heating elements, and not with spiral ones. Thus, you do not have to worry about the failure of this part.

There is an opinion about a small choice of devices in terms of volume. The opinion, although widespread, is erroneous, since the increased demand for products forced developers to solve a similar problem. Of course, you cannot find large volumes among ceramic electric kettles, but within 1.7 liters the range is huge. For an average family, this amount of water is enough.

Often you can not turn on the ceramic model. This may result in damage to the equipment.

How to choose a ceramic electric kettle


When choosing a high-quality, easy-to-use ceramic electric kettle, it is important to familiarize yourself with the following criteria and device parameters:

    • a well-known brand of the manufacturer will partially give confidence in the quality of the material and the product as a whole. It is recommended that you read customer reviews about products, a particular brand, and choose models from trusted brands. When buying, do not hesitate to ask the seller questions that interest you;
    • the thickness of the walls of the case – the thicker, the slower the liquid inside cools. But this increases the weight of the product, heating time, energy consumption;
    • comfortable handle – the substantial weight of the filled kettle in itself, plus its heated state, combined with an uncomfortable handle, increase the risk of burns or injuries when falling;
    • wireless connection will allow you to install the appliance in a place convenient for you, without worrying about the sufficient length of the cord;
    • the heating element must be closed;
    • the presence of a thermostat and several brewing modes. This approach will save you from long waits, and will allow you to properly and tasty prepare a drink for tea drinking. For example, a model variant with three or more brewing modes for different types of tea: green (liquid heating temperature up to 65˚С), red (heating temperature up to 80˚С), for coffee, chocolate – a separate water heating mode up to 90˚С and the main boiling mode (up to 100˚С);
    • The device must have an automatic shutdown. Overheating of the electrical part of the device, power outages, insufficient liquid, prevention of splashing water during boiling and an open lid – this is not the whole list of advantages of this function;
    • the ability to turn 360˚ is convenient when using, since the time to turn the device and get into the grooves is not spent;

a built-in thermometer and a viewing window will be able to inform you about the fullness of the kettle and the stage of boiling;

  • for convenience, pay attention to the teapot, which will allow you to properly prepare tea. It can be built-in (the brewing mesh is located inside) or separate (on the same stand with the kettle). The second option is more convenient, but consider the dimensions of the stand. For a small kitchen, this design is not always convenient. The built-in mesh can cause unnecessary inconvenience when cleaning the device;
  • pay attention to how the lid opens and closes;
  • backlight – the condition is not mandatory, but it will greatly decorate the teapot;
  • the design and shape of the electric kettle, complete set with a pair of cups of the same color, which will harmoniously fit into the kitchen interior;
  • warranty period. Ask about this issue so that in case of marriage the device can be exchanged.
