OXO Brew Cordless Glass Electric Kettle

The kettle that keeps you in hot water (that’s good).

Electric kettles are handy for making tea or coffee and for any cooking task that requires a few cups of boiling water, from rehydrating dried mushrooms and tomatoes to softening lasagna noodles or reconstituting concentrated stocks. Need more good reasons to own one? Water boils faster in an electric kettle than in a covered pan (we timed it!) and your stove remains free for other cooking tasks. 

OXO Brew Cordless Glass Electric Kettle


This large, sleek glass kettle was one of the quickest in our lineup. The power switch lights up in an icy blue when it’s activated, the handle is wide and comfortable, and the kettle sits securely on its base. We also liked its slow-open lid, which prevents accidental burns from steam and splashing water. It has a removable filter in its spout which, while not strictly necessary, is a handy feature in areas where the water has sediment.

We maintain strict objectivity in all testing.*

How We Tested Electric Kettles

We gathered several kettles made from stainless steel and glass (we’ve found that plastic kettles can create funky flavors) to test against our old favorite. We started by timing how long each took to boil water. We then evaluated the precision of their spouts and comfort of their handles and boiled the maximum allowed volume in each one to see if they splashed or spilled. We even held a blind tasting of the boiled water to see if any imparted off-flavors. Finally, we subjected each kettle to a durability test of 25 additional boiling cycles, putting the top-ranked models through a full 365 rounds to simulate daily use for a year.
