What is BPA and why should we avoid it?
BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics since the 1960s. Some research has suggested that BPA can seep into food and water from containers that are made with BPA plastics. Obviously, this is a potential health concern and in recent years many people and companies have moved to BPA free products. As a kettle is constantly heating and holding water there is a risk of BPA contaminating the water and getting into our bodies. Although the FDA has stated that BPA is safe there is ongoing research that suggests it may have long-term effects on our health. With that in mind we have decided to put together a list of the best BPA free kettles. We also recently put together a list of the best kettles with no plastic at all here.
