Best Electric Teapots iMore 2021

An electric teapot is a handy thing to have since you can boil water in five minutes or less without having to use your stovetop. There are other advantages as well, including an automatic shut-off feature for safety (which every electric teapot should have). Luckily, all of the options featured on this list have it. Some will have temperature controls as well, so you can set a precise temperature for your water. This comes in handy for coffee or high-end teas that require specific water temperatures. Here are some of the best electric teapots you can buy.

Tea's on

If you're making pour-over coffee, a gooseneck spout is a must. For tea and other hot beverages, the type of spout isn't as important as it is for coffee. My personal recommendation is the Yabano Electric Gooseneck Kettle. It has the easy-to-control gooseneck spout needed for coffee, and it works beautifully for non-coffee beverages as well. The variable temperature control, real-time LCD temperature display, and stay-hot feature make this the best of the bunch for any purpose. It comes with a dual-layer stainless steel mesh coffee filter as well.

However, if you're not interested in making fancy pour-over coffee and just want hot water in a hurry, I'd recommend the bargain-priced, highly-rated AmazonBasics Electric Kettle. The cordless kettle design makes filling and pouring easy. A 30-inch power cord to the base gives you plenty of room to move it around. Any surface that contacts the water is BPA-free, and the filter is removable and washable. The water window lets you see how much is in the teapot while in use.
