Plastic getting into our drinking water is becoming a concern. There is a lot of research being carried out as to its affects on the human body. Obviously some plastics are worse than other depending on what chemicals have been used to make them but it’s far healthier and safer to eliminate plastic altogether.
A kettles are designed to boil water they obviously get very hot on the inside. Over time this heat can cause the plastic to break down and allow small amounts of plastic to get into our water. We want to avoid this so we are going to look at the best electric kettles without a plastic interior.
This kettle has a 100% stainless steel interior. So it is exactly what we are looking for from that point of view. It also has a stainless steel spout and lid so there is no chance of our water becoming contaminated with plastics.
Like all good tea kettles it has an easy on/off switch and will automatically shut off when the water reaches boiling.
The base is corded but the kettle itself is not so you aren’t tied to using the kettle near the plug. You can boil your water and carry it anywhere you need.
It takes about 4 minutes to boil water when completely full but can you can save time and energy but only filling it up with the amount of water you need. The kettle is well insulated so the water stays hot for a long time afterwards.
The kettle does have some plastic parts but the parts that come into contact with the water are 100% stainless steel.
This Secura model has many of the same features as the firs kettle on our list. Most importantly it has a 100% stainless steel interior. It also has a BPA free stay cool exterior. So even right after boiling the kettle is safe to the touch. Ideal if you have children.
The design isn’t exactly anything special but it does come in a range of vibrant colours.
It is made with premium 18/10 stainless steel and even has a stainless steel filter on the inside to make sure the water is as pure as possible.
Fast boiling with an easy on/off switch. This kettle also auto shuts off when it reaches boiling point. It boils very quickly even when full.
This kettle also lifts away from a corded base for easy use around the home and kitchen. It holds a lot of water and has Amazon reviewers are overwhelmingly positive about this product.
First thing to note about this kettle is that while the interior is 100% stainless steel it does have a plastic filter on the inside of the spout. Fortunately this is removable so it qualifies for our list.
What makes this kettle is different is the fact you can choose between 6 temperature settings ranging from 160 to 212 degrees F. This is quite a unique feature and we can’t honestly think of many uses for it. The only one I can think of is to warm some water to defrost my windscreen on an icy morning. Using boiling water may crack the windshield so I may actually start using this kettle for this purpose alone.
It also has a keep warm button that will keep your water at the desired temperature for 2 hours. A nice feature if you have guests and wish to top off the tea or coffee pot.
This large capacity kettle is perfect if you often make tea for larger groups. Despite its large size it is very quick to boil.
It is 100% stainless steel on the interior and no plastic ever comes into contact with the water. It features many safety features like auto shut off, dry boil protection, heat resistant handle and a safety locking lid.
This kettle is one of the quietest kettles on the market not that we have ever found the noise of another kettle bothersome but it’s a nice feature all the same!
It has a money back guarantee so if you aren’t happy you can return no questions asked. This kettle is very good value and is one of the cheapest on our list. The only thing we don’t like about it is the oversized logo on the side.
This kettle comes in a black and white finish but of course has a 100% stainless steel interior. It also has a BPA free exterior which stays cool to the touch even after boiling.
At 1.5L it is one of the smaller kettles on our list but it still holds enough water to make 4 or 5 cups at a time.
It is very quick to boil and only the base is corded for cordless convenience. It brings water to a rolling boil so you will need to shut it off when it reaches temperature.
It lacks a lot of the features of the other kettles on the list so it wouldn’t be our first choice but still a nice kettle.
These are probably the best 5 no plastic kettles you can buy right now. Obviously the exteriors feature plastic but as long as there is no contact with the water then we consider them safe from plastic contamination. If you are looking for a completely plastic free solution then you may need to look at a cook top kettle. Plastic is an essential safety feature on electric kettles as it provides insulation from electric shock.
We have put together a list of the best induction compatible kettles which you may wish to consider if you are looking for one for the stove top.
All of the kettles on our list have excellent reviews on Amazon and any would be a good choice. We would look for one with auto shut off and a corded base.
The best value kettle is number 4 on the list but our favourite was definitely number 2, the Secura. We loved the various colour selections and it had all the features a good kettle should.
