Your kettle can also be used for bringing the water to the perfect temperature for the following. Please remember that these are guidelines only.

Enjoy your cup of coffee or tea faster than ever. The design of the heating element, kettle jug and wattage all attribute to quicker boiling than heating your water on a traditional stove or microwave.
Not only does using an electric kettle save time over using a traditional stove or microwave, enjoy cheaper electricity bills thanks to these time savings and lower amount of energy used by the kettle. Using a stove to heat your water is wasteful and tough on your wallet!
