This kettle is also amazingly quiet thanks to the Quiet Boil technology. It is a special coating on the heating element and a diffuser ring that break the water bubbles into smaller water bubbles, so that when they burst, less noise is made.

Here, too, there is an option to set the temperature - with 8 levels between 60 ° C and 100 ° C in 5 ° C steps. It is not possible to change the selection during the cooking process. It takes 3 keystrokes to bring this kettle to a boil, a bit of a hassle - but it's quiet.

The outer wall of the kettle becomes hot when cooking, theoretically it is possible to burn yourself if you are careless. You should also keep this in mind if there are children in the house.

In terms of functionality, the AEG EWA3300 is one of the basic models. It fulfills its basic function - boiling water - and does it quite quietly. It does not offer a temperature selection or keep warm function. This makes it suitable for everyone who primarily just wants to get hot water, but doesn't need any other bells and whistles.

As with all other kettles, it is important to descale it regularly. This makes a decisive contribution to ensuring that the kettle remains quiet over the long term. If there is a lot of limescale deposits, descaling helps to lower the volume again.

The Arendo stainless steel kettle is a very quiet kettle made of stainless steel with only a few plastic elements.

The kettle also does the cooking process in a very short time - the 3000 watts make it possible. This also applies if the kettle is filled to the maximum level of 1.7 liters. There is a plastic water level indicator located behind the handle. This makes it a bit difficult to see when you hold the kettle in your hand. In addition, the kettle is equipped with a double wall. On the one hand, this keeps the outer wall cool - the risk of burns is minimized, which is particularly important in households with children. On the other hand, the water stays warm longer if you let it stand. As is common with modern appliances, the kettle switches itself off when the water has boiled.

Since the lid of this quiet kettle can be opened wide, filling it with water is very easy. Pouring is also drip-free. The opening of the kettle is large enough to be easily cleaned by hand and wiping is easy.

According to the manufacturer, the kettle is free from BPA (bisphenol A). The design looks high-quality, the workmanship is solid and robust.

The Bestek kettle is a quiet kitchen helper made of stainless steel. The noise development is lower than with most common devices. The Bestek model is an exception among the kettles, as it actually has a decibel rating. The manufacturer puts the volume at 57 dB.

The kettle offers a temperature selection function and a keep warm function that keeps the water at the desired temperature for up to 30 minutes.
There are 6 temperature levels to choose from, namely 10 increments between 70 and 100 ° C and 2 useful 5 degree levels at 85 ° C and 95 ° C. The 5 ° C step between 80 ° C and 85 ° C, for example, makes the difference between good green and white tea.
A separate button is available for each individual temperature level, so you don't have to laboriously work your way up to the desired temperature in 5 ° C or 10 ° C steps.
This makes it possible to enjoy a wide variety of teas, each of which requires different temperature levels, thanks to the optimally coordinated preparation. Coffee and tea drinkers can enjoy themselves with this device and get their money's worth.

The buttons for operating the kettle, which, by the way, are very simple, are located on the handle. These include the "Start / Stop" button, the temperature buttons and the "Keep Warm" button with the keep warm function. The 'Open' button for opening the lid is also attached to the handle.
The kettle can therefore be operated with one hand, because the lid opens and closes at the push of a button and clicks into place at the top without slamming again.
The opening angle of the lid is approximately 90 °, so that filling with water is easy. This is also an advantage for easy cleaning, as is the fact that the integrated limescale filter can be removed.

A water level indicator shows the filling quantity both in liters and in cups, this is located under the handle and can be a little difficult to see when filling with water.
The water comes into contact with the level indicator and the plastic limescale filter. According to the manufacturer, however, the kettle is BPA-free.
Pouring can be done without dripping. Likewise, no condensation runs down and you don't get burned by the steam.

The stove shines in a pleasant blue, the LED lighting is not permanent, as with some other models, but switches itself off again after the cooking process.
At the end of the cooking process, you will hear three beeps to remind you that the water is ready. The stove also beeps when it is switched on, when it is ready, and when the temperature is selected.

Furthermore, the device is stable and has a concealed heating element. The almost obligatory 360 ° base rounds off the construction. The stove is not bulky, but narrow and high and therefore saves space even in a narrow kitchen.
The housing gets hot from the outside due to the stainless steel, but the large handle does not heat up and is located at a sufficient distance from the boiler. The base plate does not heat up significantly either.

The kettle is not the fastest, but it scores with low volume and a variety of functions.

⮞ Quiet alternative to the kettle: hot water dispenser ⮜


One of the most energy efficient methods of heating water is and remains the electric kettle.
In this regard, it is superior to the tea kettle on the electric stove and the microwave.

If you want to buy a quiet kettle, you should consider a few things.
First of all, one should pay attention to the general usability of the product. It is also important to consider personal water boiling habits. It is also helpful if you can determine a main purpose for the quiet kettle.

user friendliness

Ease of use and safety are paramount here. It should be possible to start the kettle without pressing many buttons. Good insulation is essential so that no heat develops on the outer wall. This is especially important in households with children. The lid should be easy to open at the push of a button. Drip-free pouring should be possible - otherwise there is a risk of scalding, as well as the escape of steam.
A no-go are kettles that release harmful substances into the water. Bisphenol A (BPA) in particular is a term here.

One advantage of plastic kettles is that they stay relatively cool on the outside. Stainless steel or glass kettles have the advantage of not releasing pollutants into the water; this may happen with plastic kettles. If you want to be on the safe side, you should opt for a device made entirely of stainless steel. However, many stainless steel kettles have plastic water level indicators.

Most modern devices are equipped with an automatic switch-off, overheating protection and a limescale filter.

Personal usage habits


When it comes to capacity, consider how much hot water you usually need. If you only want to make a cup of tea, you will find that a large kettle is superfluous and only tempts to boil too much water. This again wastes electricity and water. The minimum filling quantity is also usually higher for larger devices. So it can make perfect sense to opt for a small model. Another advantage of a small device is that you can take it with you when you travel without having to buy an extra travel kettle.
If you regularly need large amounts of hot water, for example in a large household or to fill a thermos, you should of course opt for a larger model.


Another point to consider is performance. This is given in watts. If you have to go fast, you should opt for a quiet kettle with a higher wattage. Kettles with more watts boil a certain amount of water faster than those with less power. This means that the cooking noise also extends over a shorter period of time.

Temperature selection and keep warm function

A temperature selection and keep warm function are useful for tea and hot drink enthusiasts. Occasional tea drinkers are better off with a simple but reliable, quiet kettle.


The cooking volume depends on various points: these include the material, the construction and the insulation.
In terms of material, plastic or glass kettles are quieter than stainless steel kettles. However, you always have to look at the individual device. Special noise-reducing technologies and the construction have a major influence here. Many of the quiet kettles presented are stainless steel models.
The insulation of a kettle can also prevent noise. Concealed heating elements are often a little louder than heating rods lying openly in the water. However, open heating elements have one major disadvantage. They can release substances of concern, such as nickel, into the water. Therefore, they are not recommended.
Calcified kettles are also louder, so regular descaling is important if you want a quiet kettle.

Quiet kettles use a number of innovations to reduce the cavitation noise of boiling water to a minimum. Some quiet kettles rely on better insulation to block out noise, while others break up the size of the water bubbles with a specially designed base. Some of the low-noise kettles have particularly powerful heating elements that heat the water very quickly, while others use slightly slower heating elements to reduce the intensity and volume of the bubbling.
