* Design-forward glass and stainless steel kettle
* Boils water faster than stovetop
* Voted “Best Electric Kettle” in 2016

You pay for fancy glasses and tableware and top of the line appliances, so it’s easy to forget about your small kitchen essentials as well. But it’s time to upgrade something you use every single day: your kettle.

The days of the stovetop kettle are long gone, replaced by the more efficient and convenient electric kettle. Rather than go cheap with a kettle off the department store shelves, spring for this OXO On Cordless Glass Electric Kettle.

Made from a durable borosilicate glass and stainless steel, this OXO kettle boils up to 1.75 L of water faster than the microwave and safer than the stovetop. An illuminated LED power switch lights up when the kettle is on and automatically turns off when water has reached a rolling boil, so you never have to watch the clock (or worry about leaving water boiling over).

Another safety feature: the handle’s non-slip grip stays cool to the touch. The lid pops open slowly, so you can control the release of steam and prevent hot water from spraying. And the glass is BPA-free, for safe, clean drinking water.

Electric kettles are often thought of as cumbersome or unattractive sitting on the counter-top. This OXO On Cordless Glass Electric Kettle is exactly what it says in the name: cord-free. Remove the kettle from its 360-degree swivel base and use it without the cord. The insulated bottom stays cool to the touch so you won’t burn yourself – or your table when you set it down.

Voted “Best Electric Kettle” by Good Housekeeping Magazine last year, the kettle comes with a stainless steel filter that’s easy to clean and re-use.
