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.

We love the design of this kettle, the exterior is really sleek and stylish and it comes in black and red. Like all the kettles on this list, the lack of a window is a little frustrating as you can’t see how much water is in the kettle without opening it however to be completely plastic-free this is just something you have to accept.
This kettle uses a British Strix control Water Boiler. This unique design means the kettle can have a completely flat bottom. This is great because it means it ensures dry cooking protection.

5. Rosewill Double Layer Insulated Stainless Steel Pot Double Wall Electric Tea Water Kettle Cool Touch Exterior, 1.5 L, White ( RHKT-15001)
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.
