What is the Quietest Kettle? - Four Top Rated Silent Kettles

The following is a showcase of four almost silent electric kettles -- that have been specifically selected based on their incredibly quiet boil ‘noise levels’ that they produce as well as being tried, tested and proved by users to be quality kettles. So if you find the typical - ‘as loud as an electric drill’ - type kettles irritating as hell (when all you want to do is just wait for your cuppa in peace and silence), then you are bound to love at least one of these super quiet kettles on offer (or at least get a better understanding & idea as to what you are after).

The SK500XL Cordless 1.7 Liter Stainless-Steel Electric Kettle By Breville

Dimensions: 8 x 11 x 10 inches | Weight: 1 Pound |

Breville are well known for producing quality & modern looking kitchen and home devices -- and the SK500XL kettle certainly lives right up to the Breville name: as it has a beautiful stainless steel and sleek finish and in all is very well regarded as a multi-functional kettle that boils at whisper quiet levels (relative to a kettle). Also, as it powered at 1500-watts (and being cordless, which offers a range of practicalities by its seldom) means anything less than a liter of water (given by its water-level indicator) is boiled incredibly quickly (note: it lets you know when it is boiling because the blue light indicator comes on, and when boiled it turns off).

The 259 H2O Plus Glass Water Kettle (polished chrome) By Capresso

Dimensions 6.5 x 8.2 x 10 inches | Weight: 3 ounces |

This rather unique looking (see through) German s.c.h.o.t.t. 'heat resistant' glass kettle heats water efficiently through a stainless steel dome that utilises a heating cover which in turn allows the kettle to boil water both quietly (acts like noise dampening effect) and quickly. Moreover, once the water get to boiling point, it will turn itself off automatically. It offers a range of practical aspects too e.g. the "slip free underside handle",  'water level indicator' with markings to indicate an average 'mug amount' and is a cordless design that rests on a 360 degree swivel stand.

The Stainless Steel 57 Oz Electric Kettle By Esperssione

Dimensions: 8.5 x 12.5 x 15.5 inches | Weight: 3 Pounds |

Although this model isn't 'as' popular as some of the others, it should certainly not be underestimated -- this kettle really is one of the best for quiet boiling. Where the 'jug' kettle utilises Esperssione's rapid boil technology & (1500W) heating system to offer a fast yet extremely quiet boiling operation. As it is a premium kettle, you can expect all the usual tricks and snags on offer such as the light indicator, an 'accu-spout' to allow for precision pouring & a generally good ergonomic design with an overly sized handle to allow for complete control.

The CPK-17 PerfecTemp 1.7 Liter Stainless Steel Cordless Kettle By Cuisinart

Dimensions: 8.2 x 9.8 x 12.0 inches | Weight: 1 Pound |

This CPK-17 unit is the quietest electric kettle of the whole lot (unfortunately, it is also the most expensive t00, it does offer a tonne of value though) and is literally packed with features like its PerfecTemp technology where can select a precise temperature (a range of six) that the water heats up to (making it more optimal for certain needs e.g. 160 degrees for 'delicate teas' but 200 degrees for instant cocoa) and comes with sleep mode (so if the kettle hasn't been used for 300 seconds, to save on power it will go to sleep i.e the heater & lights are turned off, but the settings you altered it  to will remain). Although expensive, this kettle is pretty darn awesome and really doesn't get much better than this -- certainly our personal favourite.
