Case material alone is not enough to recommend the device. For comfortable use, the device must have a powerful heating element, without which it will take a very long time to boil. The design is also important, because the kettles in the kitchen are always in sight. Design is another important criterion. If the manufacturer has not thought it through, then pouring water will be inconvenient. Based on these requirements and taking into account the price of teapots, we have collected the top 10 models of teapots from top brands.
TOP 10 best metal electric kettles
Electric kettles are now present in almost every home . The cases of such equipment are made from three main materials:
The first option, as a rule, is characteristic of budget models. Yes, manufacturers often cannot completely eliminate the use of plastic in appliances. But it is important that it does not come into contact with water or elements that heat up during operation.
Glass models are better. They attract attention with their construction and design. However, you need to be careful with glass so as not to break it, and any contamination inside and outside equipment with such material will be immediately noticeable.
Metal is the most practical material. It is strong, beautiful and durable. Devices with such cases retain heat better. Therefore, in our new review, we will tell you which metal kettle to purchase so that it serves for a long time and efficiently.
1. De’Longhi KBI 2001
Stylish and high-quality model from the Distinta Flair collection. The assembly of the KBI 2001 is excellent, all the details fit perfectly. The teapot is available in three color options: black, red and aqua, which, in our opinion, looks especially stylish.
The capacity of one of the most reliable kettles according to reviews is standard – 1.7 liters. Using a powerful 2200 W heating element allows you to boil such a volume in a few minutes. And the metal body keeps the water hot for a long time.
In addition to impeccable style, De’Longhi is famous for its advanced protection systems. The KBI 2001 kettle switches off automatically when overheating and lack of water. The spout of the device is equipped with a mesh filter that effectively protects against scale in the drink.

2. REDMOND RK-M1305D
The review continues with a smart electric kettle that can heat water not only up to 100 degrees, but also to lower values. This is important if you want the tea to reveal all its qualities. Grass, black, green and other varieties need their own temperature.
In total, 5 modes are available in the RK-M1305D model: 40, 60, 80, 90 and 100. The first option is needed for baby and sports nutrition, the second is white / yellow tea, the third is for herbal tea.

3. Kitfort KT-634-4
Perhaps the most unusual model in the review of electric kettles is offered by the Kitfort brand. The design of the KT-634 is in vintage style, and at first it may seem that this is a kettle that is used on a hob. In fact, an electric heating element is built into it, and security systems that turn off the equipment when removed from the stand and there is no water inside. The volume of KT-634, by the way, is 1.7 liters.
The last digit in the model name means the body color. In our case, it is blue (4). Graphite (1), red (2) and beige (3) teapots are also available.
The handle in a good and inexpensive kettle is located on top, so it does not cover the water level indicator above the power button, as it happens in competitor models. Kitfort used a combination of metal and environmentally friendly plastic for the handle and lid. There is room in the instrument stand to store extra cable if 68 cm is too much for your needs. And you can control the temperature with a thermometer on the side panel.
- durable stainless steel;
- the location of the measuring scale;
- water heating rate;
- low noise level;

4. Bosch TWK7808
Reliable electric kettle developed by German engineers . The power button located at the bottom has a built-in indicator light that lets you know that the device is turned on. The heating element in the TWK7808 is hidden, which prolongs its service life, prevents the formation of a large amount of scale and simplifies the maintenance of equipment.
Like Kitfort, the German brand produces a popular teapot model in several colors: gold, red, copper and black. The cable from the complete stand has a length of 70 cm. If necessary, it can be hidden in the stand if the device is located near the socket. For safety reasons, the lid in the kettle is blocked with a special button.

The heating element of the device is represented by a closed coil with a power of 2.2 kW. Thanks to this, the full volume of the kettle, equal to 1.7 liters, boils in a few minutes.
The exact time depends on the temperature of the water and the environment. The optimal conditions for the use of equipment will be rooms with temperatures above -10 degrees.
Thanks to the wide slots in the spout of the Philips electric kettle, you can fill it with water without opening the lid. But because of this, another problem arises: without a filter, debris and scale particles will pour into the cup. Therefore, it is best to use only bottled and pre-filtered water with the HD9352, not tap water.

There are also three levels of protection in technology, and it turns off without water, when it boils or is removed from the base.
A reliable kettle manufacturer offers an official 1 year warranty, as well as a year of free service. The volume and power of the Gorenje K17CLBK are the same as those of most competitors: 1700 ml and 2.2 kW. The length of the network cable is 0.7 m.

This kettle received a high-quality metal case with a small amount of plastic elements. The lid and handle are made of it, as well as the base of the case and the stand on which the device is installed.

Which metal teapot is better
The Italian brand De’Longhi and the German company Bosch produce the most durable devices. Even with intensive use, they can be guaranteed to work for more than 7 years. The palm in design is shared by Kitfort and Gorenje. The classic style is now very popular, and the Slovenes even produce a whole series of devices in a similar design. And in terms of the combination of cost and quality , the rating of the best stainless steel teapots is headed by the domestic company REDMOND, which is very nice. But Philips competes with it almost on an equal footing with its metal models.
