Which energy saving kettle is right for you?
We’re a nation of tea lovers and coffee worshipers. Most mornings begin with a good brew or cup of Joe and the days end pretty much the same (bed-time tea, yum).
However, because we’re such hot beverage fans, we need to be smart when we’re making drinks. After all, a couple of teas a day adds up and has a considerable energy impact.
You’re also likely to feel the effects of all that hot stuff in your pocket too. Last year nPower estimated that it costs around 2.5p to boil a full kettle – water that many of us don’t actually end up using.
Energy saving kettles are a great choice in order to ensure you can indulge in as much caffeine as you want without worrying how much energy – and money – you’re using.
Of course there are plenty out there to choose from and, with hot drinks featuring so prominently in our lives, it’s crucial to get the right one.
If you’re a binge drinker
If you’re the sort of person who has been known to regularly have one cup per hour or more, you need a kettle that can keep up with you.
You’re also going to need a device that helps you to make a brew as efficiently as possible. After all, you make so many that you can’t afford to waste precious moments waiting for the kettle to boil for the hundredth time that day.
If all this sounds like you, a thermal-insulated kettle is probably for the best. This means that if you fill the kettle at ten in the morning, left over water will still be warm in the early afternoon – brilliant news if you’re a fan of the old ‘pour and go’.
The Vektra Eco Kettle is a great example of a thermal-insulated device. It can keep boiled water hot enough for tea for up to two hours and hot enough for coffee for four hours.
What’s more, the sides don’t get hot when the kettle is boiling and there is a non-drip pouring spout. The level controlled anti-spill stopper and comfortable handle makes using the kettle easier than ever.
If you like your drinks green
If your main consideration when brewing up is doing so in a green and sustainable way, you can’t go wrong with the Eco Kettle 2. This cordless kettle saves time and energy when boiling, allowing you to only use the water that you need. The patented dual chamber design means you can fill the device up to the top but transfer the amount of water you want to boil to the heating chamber.
If you’re Goldilocks
Hot drink aficionados will know that if your beverage is too hot its undrinkable, too cold and the flavour is compromised. You might feel a bit like Goldilocks but you shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to the temperature of your drink – there is one that’s just right.
A kettle with temperature control is the perfect solution for those of you who need to have your drink at the right temperature instantly. The Eco Kettle 3 with temperature control allows you to enjoy hot drinks in a more efficient way.
You can boil the exact amount of water you need using its patented dual chamber design. Select one of three temperature settings – although we recommend 80 degrees C for speciality teas and 90 degrees C for making coffee and boiling.
