If you like drinking hot water but don’t plan to purchase a water cooler dispenser, buying an electric kettle is enough. Although it is small, it is able to heat water very quickly and is energy-efficient, helping to save your time and energy. You can use it to boil tap water, but we highly recommend you to use filtered water (for example, RO water).
The traditional ways to heat water are to heat water on a stove-top or in a microwave, but electric kettles can heat water more efficient and quick. Actually, I don’t recommend you to drink hot water heated by a microwave. I used the cooled water to water my followers and they died away. It is estimated cooled water heated in a microwave is not safe to use. Therefore, I strongly advise you to buy a water cooler dispenser if you have a large family, or at least to buy an electric kettle.
There are many kettles on the market. However, with the development of new technologies, some models have their unique features.
- Temperature control – This feature allows you to control the temperature accurately, perfect for make a cup of tea or making a cup of coffee.
- Automatic shut off – Most have this feature. Once it reaches its setting temperature, it will shut itself automatically, making it safer to use.
- Other Use – You even can boil eggs in your kettle instead of on a stove-top. Or you need an egg boiler if you have to boil more eggs every day for your big family.
