Few things upgrade making tea quite like an electric tea kettle. "They are a fast and inexpensive way to heat water quickly," says Jessica Petrino, the editorial director and appliance expert at AJ Madison. "Electric tea kettles are faster than boiling water on the stove in a pot, pan, or traditional kettle." Not only can they be used for both tea and coffee—pour-over, anyone?—but they also make bringing water to a boil so much easier. Most of the electric kettles we're recommending come with easy one-touch buttons allowing you to simply fill the kettle with water, plug it in, press a button, and watch your water boil.

When it comes to tea, everyone likes theirs hot, but sometimes opting for a specific temperature will bring out specific flavor profiles in tea leaves. These kettles provide a wide range of heating options, some even to the degree. Plus, many of these kettles have a warming button, meaning they'll keep the water at your desired temperature for up to an hour. Enjoying that second cuppa just got a whole lot easier!
