This T-fal electric kettle doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles of the reader-favorite Breville kettle, but it fortunately doesn’t come with the $200 price tag either.

Selling for around $34 for the last couple of months, Amazon has dropped the price on this variable temperate kettle to just $21 today. This is the exact one I’ve had at home for years and I’ve have never had any problems with it - it heats up the water quickly (under 2 minutes), is easy to clean, and is the right size for a couple cups of tea.
