If you're a tea lover, then you already know the importance of investing in a quality kettle. Although old-school stovetop versions are widely available and inexpensive, digital tea kettles—a.k.a ones that warm up electronically via a built-in heated base—are usually smarter investments in the long run. Not only are they much more energy efficient than using a stovetop or microwave, digital tea kettles tend to heat up faster than standard varieties—and stay warm for longer so you don't have continuously reheat the water (especially during the cold weather months when things go frigid, fast).
Great for home or the office, if you've been thinking of purchasing one for yourself, Amazon has a lightning deal on one of their top-rated models today.
Buy It: Chefman Electric Glass Digital Tea Kettle, $39.49
Normally priced at around $50 (it fluctuates week to week at times) this self-warming wonder is currently on sale for just under 40 bucks.
Some highlights of the nearly 5-star rated product:
- The swivel base rotates 360-degrees for easy handling
- It holds 1.7 liters (about 57 ounces) for plenty of refills
- A built-in temperature control mechanism helps keep your water warm for up to 60 minutes (when you want it to)
- It comes with a built-in tea infuser (we think this would be great for adding citrus...hot lemon water anyone?)
- Even cooler, this electronic tea buddy detects when you're low on water and automatically shuts off for safety. This way you'll never have to worry if you get distracted and forget your tea's on the stove—nor will you have to reheat your water ever 20 minutes when you need a refill.
As user B. Newby explains in his five-star review of the kettle:
"My wife bought this kettle for me so I could make tea at work without all the fuss a standard hotplate would make with my employer or the lackluster flavor I'd get from a Keurig-type tea maker.
I've used it everyday for the last two weeks, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, and it has not ceased to impress me. Not only is it extremely simple to use, but it brews perfect tea no matter how you like it or which type of tea you are making. Different teas need to be brewed at different temperatures and this will easily accommodate any of them. Whether you brew the tea inside the kettle or just heat up water to add to a mug, this kettle gets it spot-on perfect every time. Just turn it on, press the program button, and adjust the temperature as desired. It heats the water in only a couple minutes and, when left on, will continue to keep it at that temperature automatically.
Overall, this is an incredible item, and at such a low cost, I would highly recommend this to anyone who brews their own drinks."
