3 Best Quiet Electric Kettles

Peacefully brew your perfect morning cup.

There’s nothing better than waking up to a peaceful morning to get yourself ready for the day ahead. What better way to start than with a cup of coffee or tea using a quiet electric kettle?

We have to admit, nobody likes to listen to blaring sounds early in the morning. It could disrupt the flow you’ve set for the day. If you’re an early-riser, it would be a wise choice to secure a kettle that doesn’t rouse up the rest of the family first thing in the morning.

Selecting a quiet kettle can be tricky. Sometimes, the time it takes to comb through good and bad customer reviews might take too long. Your initial search might lead you down a rabbit hole of comments and reviews.

To save you time and guide you in your purchase, we’ve come up with a top 3 list of the best quiet electric kettles that showcases the kettles’ features to find one that suits your needs.

1. Secura SWK-1701DB The Original Stainless Steel Double Wall Electric Water Kettle

FEATURES

  • 360º Swivel Base
  • Cordless
  • Auto Shut Off
  • Stainless Steel Double Wall
  • BPA-free Cool Touch Exterior
  • Stainless Steel Filter
  • LED On/Off Button
  • Available in Multiple Colors
  • Boil-Dry Protection
  • 2 – Year Limited Warranty

This electric water kettle from Secura is the only one on this list to have a double wall stainless steel body, so it stays cool to the touch while keeping the temperature hot for longer.

It is a great quiet everyday item to have. You can have your water boiling in just minutes with barely any sound. Even though the lid is not detachable, it does have a large opening that provides easy access for cleaning.

The unit uses the British Strix control to conserve energy when reheating already hot or warm water. So you needn’t worry about excessive power consumption. The kettle sits snug on its power base and does not spill when pouring. Sad to say, it only has one temperature setting.

PROS

  • Sleek Design
  • Quiet
  • Fast Boil
  • Best Value

CONS

  • No variable temperature setting
  • Lid does not go all the way back
  • No water indicator
  • Slight tendency to rust

2. OXO 8716900 Brew Clarity Adjustable Temperature Kettle

FEATURES

  • 360º Swivel Base
  • Cordless
  • Auto Shut Off
  • Maintains Temperature for up to 30 Minutes
  • Adjustable Temperature Setting
  • Durable Borosilicate Glass
  • Non-slip, Comfortable Handle
  • Perforated Stainless Steel Filter
  • 2 – Year Warranty

The OXO 8716900 Brew Clarity Adjustable Temperature Kettle is a stunning product introduced by OXO. This  glass kettle brings water to a quiet boil fast and looks good doing it. Its quiet beep indicates that boiling is done.

One of its safety features include a slow soft open lid to prevent potential burns. This one takes the kicker for the highest water capacity in this list as you can see from the water level.

In addition to all these awesome features, you can adjust the temperature in the power base however you like it (170 – 212). Although this OXO  product is not fully plastic free, we can say it’s solidly built and well-proportioned especially with its borosilicate glass that also provides thermal shock protection.

PROS

  • Quiet
  • Fast Boil

CONS

  • Tendency to be inaccurate with temperatures
  • Lid does not come off
  • Difficult to empty completely
  • Lid does not go all the way back

3. Kenwood SJM610 Persona Collection Electric Kettle

FEATURES

  • 360º Swivel Base
  • Cordless
  • Auto Shut Off
  • Quiet Mark Certified
  • Maintains  Temperature up to 30 Minutes
  • Sound Alert Option
  • Small LCD on the Base with a Digital Display
  • 7 Different Temperature Settings
  • 1 – Year Limited Warranty

The Kenwood Persona Electric Kettle is a fast and quiet kettle that definitely stands out in this list considering all its features. It resembles a pitcher shape rather than a traditional kettle with a push-top lid. Despite this, it has a smooth brushed silver aluminum finish and can hold up to 7 cups of water.

The kettle is a bit heavy but gives a sturdy feel to it. There is a small plastic window on the side of the pot for a better look inside. The simple design lets you remove it easily from its cordless base, which activates the automatic shutoff once the boiling is done.  One of its cons is the temperature guide is just a sticker and can easily come off over time.

PROS

  • Quiet Mark Certified
  • Sound Alert Option
  • 7 Different Temperature Settings
  • Fast Boil

CONS

  • Pricy
  • Temperature guide sticker will come off over time
  • Lid does not go all the way back
  • Uses up more energy
