The Best Filter Kettles

Like many modern kettles, my own kettle has a simple removable and cleanable filter in the spout.

It doesn’t seem do the best job against hard water. So I stopped adding straight tap water to my kettle a few years ago.

I find that by adding filtered water in my kettle, from a regular Brita filter jug, means there is less lime scale build-up from hard water.

It’s a slow process to add pre-filtered water each time, so I was interested to see how these filter kettles performed.

Choosing the Best Filter Kettles

As with the rest of the guides on this site, I first visited the filter kettle sections at four of the UK’s largest online stores – Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco.

I then made a list of all the best filter kettles, and then averaged the user scores across these sites.

Brita was the only filtering system I found, with several different manufacturers utilizing the Brita filter system.

Note that some of the best filter kettles I found are smaller in overall water capacity than regular kettles. Even across the Morphy Richards Accents range we see a variation – double-check kettle capacity before buying.
