Best Travel Kettles

Quest Travel Kettle | 35690

10. Quest Travel Kettle | 35690

OUR RATING

Buy the Quest 35690 - £11.09

  • Power: 600 Watts
  • Capacity: 0.5 litres
  • Dual Voltage: Yes
  • Cord Length: N/A
  • Size and Weight: 18.5 x 15.2 x 11.4cm, 0.5kg
  • Includes: 2 x Travel Cups

The best travel kettles aren’t complicated, just like this lightweight product from Quest. The 0.5 litre capacity is perfect for two morning cups of coffee, a dual voltage function allows you to take it anywhere in the world, and the auto cut-off switch ensures you don’t lose half the water to steam after it has boiled.

Wahl Travel Kettle | ZX643-200

9. Wahl Travel Kettle | ZX643-200

OUR RATING

Buy the Wahl ZX643-200 - £15.00

  • Power: 1000 Watts
  • Capacity: 0.5 litres
  • Dual Voltage: Yes
  • Cord Length: N/A
  • Size and Weight: 18 x 16.6 x 11.2cm, 0.5kg
  • Includes: 2 x Travel Cups

The proficient heating element in a Wahl Travel Kettle makes it a good option if you want to drink tea or coffee throughout the day. Water boils quickly behind the stainless steel housing but the handle and lid stay cool, features that mean that this kettle is worth the extra few quid.

However, the bulky handle means that the kettle can take up a surprising amount of room in a suitcase, so it’s not that suitable for everyday travel. Instead, the Wahl is a good choice if you’re looking for a small kettle to keep in a caravan or travel home.

8. Igenix Travel Jug Kettle | IG7102

OUR RATING

Buy the Igenix IG7102 - £14.99

  • Capacity: 0.5 litres
  • Dual Voltage: Yes
  • Cord Length: N/A
  • Size and Weight: 17.3 x 10.9 x 16.7cm, 0.5kg
  • Includes: 2 x Travel Cups

Simple and lightweight, the Igenix is a good-value option for anyone seeking a small travel kettle for occasional use. It’s constructed from plastic so won’t last as long or boil water as quickly as others on this list. However, the boil-dry and overheat protection is beyond what can be expected for the price and reduces energy usage. This small travel kettle weighs less than half a kilogram and could be packed away into a suitcase, or used at a vacation home.

Pick up the Lakeland Travel Kettle and there’s a reassuring weight in your hand. Constructed mostly from stainless steel, this is among the heavier of the best travel kettles. But it’s a quality product, with a three-year returns policy demonstrating Lakeside’s confidence in their product.

When not in use the kettle can be packed away in a drawstring bag, so if you don’t mind the weight, the Lakeland Travel Kettle can also be a good accompaniment when staying at campsites with electricity hook ups.

High power makes this travel kettle by Russell Hobbs the most effective of the best travel kettles. The water heats quickly through the concealed heating element and the speed that water boils is reflected by the lack of an auto shut off.

OUR RATING

Buy the Lloytron E886 - £10.40

  • Dual Voltage: Yes
  • Cord Length: N/A
  • Size and Weight: 20 x 8.5 x 17cm, 0.53kg
  • Includes: 2 x Travel Cups

While it feels like a kettle for the home kitchen, the Lloytron E886 Travel Kettle is surprisingly small and neat for its one-litre capacity. It has many of the features expected of a home kettle that aren’t typically found in travel kettles, such as automatic shut off, switch off, and boil-dry protection.

The 1200 wattage is the highest of all travel kettles on our list, and easily heats water for hot drinks and cooking. Still reasonably lightweight, it can regularly be carried around, and its increased capacity and power makes this a trusty companion for a motorhome or vacation property.
