Cuisinart CPK-17 PerfecTemp 1.7-Liter Stainless Steel Cordless

Pros: Off the charts in terms of performance and durability. Sleek, stainless steel design and 1.7 liter capacity separate it from the rest of the pack. Backed by the reputable Cuisinart brand - and a 3 year warranty.

Cons: More costly than other kettles, but its quality makes it well worth the price.

Summary: The best on the market. Stands out for its good looks and warranty by a trusted company. It's a high-end model with numerous features and a highly durable design.

Ovente KG83B 1.5L Glass Electric Kettle

Pros: Stands out for its blue LED light and its glass unit that allows users to view the contents as they boil. We love that it can be removed from the base for cord-free filling and pouring.

Cons: Heats somewhat slower than other models. The glass unit is more prone to breakage.

Summary: Though this model gets high marks for its features, other models heat more effectively. The Cuisinart has more features and the T-fal is a better value.

Breville SK500XL Ikon Cordless 1.7-Liter Stainless...

Pros: A streamlined, stainless steel design with rugged construction. Gets high marks for the cushion-close lid, cord storage compartment, and "ready" chime that alerts users when the contents are done brewing.

Cons: Heavier and bulkier compared to other electric kettles we reviewed. Also makes some noise when heating liquids.

Summary: A rugged, well-designed electric kettle that offers features that less costly designs don't. It's quality is second only to the Cuisinart.

Hamilton Beach 1.7L Stainless Steel

Pros: We love the no-drip spout and removable cord that make serving easy and neat. It stands out for its attractive looks that seem to be a throwback to old-fashioned tea kettles.

Cons: The lid under the handle is somewhat awkward to use. Doesn't seem to keep liquids hot for long periods of time.

Summary: We love the Hamilton Beach's unique design and mid-range price, but the Cuisinart PerfecTemp and Breville Ikon offer better quality.
