PROS

With its high-quality glass body and polished accents, the model looks sleeker than just about any kettle out there. Plus, the glass is practically impervious to temperature changes, so you can pour ice cold water in it and watch the kettle safely raise its temperature to the boiling one. 

CONS

The power cable is relatively short. 

OUR VERDICT

Russell Hobbs 20760-10 is probably the best Brita filter kettle on this list. Though it doesn't necessarily stand out that much, its sleek and streamlined profile allows the model to edge out its competition. Plus, the little appliance blends really well with any modern kitchen.

Russell Hobbs 20760-10 BRITA

The Sleekest Kettle

Kettles don't have to look good but it certainly doesn't hurt them when they do. Take Russell Hobbs 20760-10, for instance. With its high-quality glass body and polished accents, the model looks sleeker than just about any kettle we've seen so far. Provided the people behind this product haven't sacrificed its functionality and performance in favour of good looks, a nice-looking appliance is always a plus in our book.

On that note, let's pivot a little, from the model's appearance to the way it works. At the end of the day, a Brita filter kettle wouldn't be worth much without its ability to effectively and consistently filter water. Well, with this kettle, that's exactly what you're getting.

For one, it incorporates a built-in indicator that reminds you when it is time to change the filter cartridge. On top of that, the product comes supplied with a free BRITA MAXTRA+ cartridge to get you started right off the bat.

Other than that, it's the little things, some of which you'll be able to find in other kettles. The "Perfect Pour" spout makes it easy to pour the right amount of water. The model lights up blue when you turn the boiling on. The heating element is concealed, so you won't be able to burn your fingers and so on and so forth.

In short, Russell Hobbs 20760-10 is probably the best Brita filter kettle on this list. Though it doesn't necessarily stand out that much, its sleek and streamlined profile allows the model to edge out its competition. Plus, the little appliance blends really well with any modern kitchen.

Morphy Richards Brita

Simplicity at its Finest

This Morphy Richards kettle is more or less everything a Brita filter kettle is supposed to be and look like. The difference between this model and its slightly subpar peers is minimal but noticeable. A good place to start would be the capacity. Where most cap at a litre, this one gives you 1.5 litres to work with. This way, you'll be able to boil enough water for 6 cups at a time.

The handle here is really nice too, with its ergonomic shape and practical form. It gives you a firm but comfortable grip, making it possible to effortlessly pour water from a full kettle without feeling even a little uncomfortable.

In the looks department, there isn't a whole lot to talk about here. The design is nice and minimalistic enough. The kettle looks good but the white housing is easily soiled, so you'll have to clean it more often. That said, there's a nice little illuminated water gauge that allows you to view the water capacity, which is always nice.

Just like the majority of its counterparts, the model comes equipped with a 360-degree cordless base, making it equally suitable for right- and left-handed individuals. Using the button on top of the handle, you can immediately release the lid for that nice easy fill.

To sum it up, this Morphy Richards Brita filter kettle will be great for anyone who has hard water running through his pipes. It doesn't leave limescale a single chance. What's more, the model comes equipped with an electronic cartridge replacement reminder, so you'll always know when to change the cartridge.

Russell Hobbs 4008496856343 RU-22851 BRITA

Making Hard Water Nice and Soft

This Russell Hobbs Brita water filter kettle will allow you to always enjoy a great-tasting cup of coffee or tea in the morning or after a hard day at work. That built-in water filter system from Brita there does an excellent job reducing chlorine and limescale. It is able to permanently absorb all lead and copper that you often find in tap water.

For the most part, this kettle is as good as our Best Pick from the very same company. The only differences are the handle and capacity. Where the first one has a 1.5-litre capacity, this one can't hold more than a litre, so you'll be able to boil enough water for just 4 cups, which isn't bad but, needless to say, less impressive than 6.

The handle looks and feels just as ergonomic and practical but it does heat up a little, a small inconvenience that the company will hopefully fix later.

Apart from these 2 little hiccups, this is the same Brita filter kettle. Equipped with a 1 cup feature, you'll be able to save on energy bills and water when boiling only a small amount of it. The filter is removable and easily washable. The 360-degree base is just as convenient for lefties as it is for right-handed use. The concealed element will prevent you from burning your fingers. By the way, the said heating element, thanks to the Quiet Boil™ technology, is practically silent, a nice change of pace from the usual relatively loud deal.

In conclusion, this kettle will be great for people who live in any region where the tap water is hard and dirty.

Breville VKJ972 BRITA

Modern Kettle for Modern Lifestyle

Breville VKJ972, we're definitely willing to give the kettle this much. Combining a modern, silver plastic finish with glass housing, stainless steel parts, and the Brita filter technology, it allows you to enjoy the cleanest, clearest, best water possible.

You couldn't find a better deal for hard water areas. Reducing limescale and your other impurities, it doesn't just make your favourite hot drink taste better but also prolongs the service life of the kettle. Measuring 28.6 x 21.2 x 21.6 centimetres, the kettle is neither too large nor too small for your average kitchen.

As far as functionality is concerned, this is more or less your typical Brita filter kettle, so let's go back to that exterior subject for a moment. Overall, the kettle looks sleek but also simple enough, able to complement just about any modern kitchen with its smooth curves accentuating the silver body.

The only issue on this front is the aforementioned stainless steel parts. Though they do make the model look sleek, they're also prone to scratches, so you'll have to be careful with the kettle provided you'd like to maintain its attractive appearance.

All things considered, Breville VKJ972 is simply perfect for our modern lives. It is fast but effective, sleek but discreet. The model makes it possible to enjoy the full flavour of your favourite hot drinks but without the usual nasty aftertaste that comes from chlorine.

Morphy Richards 120009 Brita

It Doesn't Need to Look Good

Morphy Richards 120009 is easily the most plain-looking kettle on this list. Is that an issue? Not really. We don't mind our kettles looking bland and relatively unimpressive. Otherwise, it would not have been able to make the list. See, except for that, the model doesn't differ at all from your average Brita filter kettle.

The only real downside that comes from the bland appearance is that there's no illumination in the kettle when it is switched on, meaning that it can be hard to read the fill level on the side in a poorly lit room.

It does, however, come equipped with built-in cord storage, so you're able to de-clutter your countertop space as much as possible. The usual boil-dry protection system is here as well. We can say the same about the 360-degree base that is just as suitable for lefties and righties.

As per usual, there's an Electronic Memo indicator that tells you when it's time to change the cartridge and, again, as it is often the case, the kettle already comes supplied with one cartridge, so you'll be able to plug it in and get to work right away.

The Brita filtration system here is just as good as the next one, reducing limescale as well as metals and chlorine, leaving you with nothing but great-tasting hot drinks and extended kettle life. It is able to simultaneously filter and boil water, so it doesn't waste any more of your time compared to a traditional kettle.

To make it simple, Morphy Richards 120009 is a good Brita filter kettle. It looks a little bland, sure. But it does its job as well as the next model. It is easier to maintain than its better-looking counterparts. Furthermore, its 1.5-litre capacity will allow you to boil enough water for 6-7 cups at a time.

What Is a Brita Filter Kettle?

You're either a tea person or a coffee person, that's just the way of the world. Either way, you need a kettle to make that favourite beverage of yours happen. Though they're often referred to as tea kettles, surprisingly enough, these little devices are just as suitable for making coffee or anything that requires boiling water to the right temperature. There's probably not a whole lot of a reason to go into details as most people are probably aware of what kettles do and how they work. That said, there are a few things we would like to point out when it comes to Brita filter kettles.

Just about every kettle these days comes with a built-in whistle, so there's hardly a reason to focus on that. Most come equipped with the type of spout that incorporates a silicone lever and/or a plastic point. The majority of kettles are made of either stainless or enamelled steel as this is one of the very few commercially available and affordable metals that's able to withstand high temperatures. Apart from that, the only major variation between regular kettles and Brita filter models stems, as you'd imagine, from that filter system. Reducing limescale and filtering metals and chlorine, a kettle like that lets you enjoy and quickly prepare a healthier, better-tasting cuppa.

In the summer, these ice buckets will allow you to enjoy delicious ice tea, so you can get one of those too while you're at it. Or you can go in a completely different direction and get yourself a wine aerator, that's fine too, there's truth in it after all.
