Stellar glass filter kettle summary

If you’re trying to conserve water and energy, this kettle will encourage you to do just that. A transparent glass jug and clear cup markings on the body of the kettle mean you can see exactly how much water you are putting in – and whether you need to refill it if making another cuppa.

How does the Stellar kettle perform?

The measurements are a core part of the design – the markings on both sides make it easy to see the water level at a glance. This should prevent you overfilling the kettle, conserving energy and water.

You can watch it as it boils too, with the added bonus of a strip of blue light around the bottom of the jug to light up the water.

The kettle has a neat shape, which means it won’t take up too much space – it has one of the smallest footprints we tested. There’s a removable water filter for easy cleaning. This isn’t the kettle for you if speed is important though – it took a little over three minutes to boil a litre.

This is one of the most unobtrusive kettles we tested in terms of appearance, with a simple, unflashy design.
