Plastic Free Electric Kettle from Bella

Your tea kettle is your first ally in many different dishes and experiences: tea, coffee, soup, even a heated compress for when you’re sick. An electric kettle makes it easy and fast to heat or boil water, but did you know that sometimes plastic kettles contain chemicals that can seep into hot water?

That’s why we recommend checking out the following list (in no particular order) of electric kettles that are completely plastic free for your health and the health of your family.

What is a Plastic Free Electric Kettle (And Why Should You Choose One)?

A plastic free electric kettle opts for ingredients like stainless steel and ceramics in their basin instead of plastic. There are a few reasons why someone might want their electric kettle to be plastic free:

  • When plastic is exposed to heat, it can seep into the water, potentially exposing you to harmful chemicals. For example, BPA, which is used to harden plastic, has been shown to cause fertility and neurological issues in some animals. 
  • Many shoppers also worry about the impact of the large amounts of forever plastics on the environment.
  • Non-plastic materials typically last longer because they are made of more durable options like stainless steel and cast iron.
  • Some people also like to avoid a “plasticky” taste that can affect your foods if made with plastic products. 

Top Plastic Free Electric Kettles: How We Picked Our Faves

For the following picks, we kept an eye out for brands that we know and trust. We also considered the aesthetic appeal, the materials used (and subsequent heat resistance), and the wattage of each kettle.

1. Electric 1.5L Ceramic Kettle

White Ceramic Kettle with a blue pattern, an  Eco-Friendly Choice
Wattage1350 watts
Capacity1.5 L

This beautiful electric ceramic kettle has the charm and appearance of a traditional kettle, but it secretly contains much more technology and potential. Completely cordless, this product can be placed on the kitchen table for you to heat water and pass around as necessary. It is imported, and it has technology that doesn’t allow it to dry boil. It also lets you know when it is done with a peaceful blue light. 


This one stands out for its traditional appearance and its material: ceramics. It is the only ceramic kettle on our list, allowing it to combine a vintage feel with modern tech.

Things to Consider

  • Also available in other colors
  • Slightly lower wattage than other kettles on our list, meaning it may not boil as quickly
  • Some customers claim that it is a bit heavier than expected
  • A longer spout makes for a clean pour

2. Luna Electric Tea Kettle

Luna Electric Tea Kettle for Plastic-Free Brewing
MaterialStainless steel
Wattage1500 watts
Capacity1.75 L

The Luna Electric Tea Kettle is elegant and sleek. It also has nifty features like a live temperature view, a “hold” mode that maintains the temperature for one hour, and a pure stainless steel interior. With a plastic free interior, this stainless steel kettle is durable and easy to wash.


This electric kettle has pre-set times according to which type of tea or coffee you would like to make. For example, if you choose the Oolong tea preset, then it will heat the water to exactly the ideal temperature for that type of tea leaf.

Things to Consider

  • Two-year warranty
  • Large capacity
  • High wattage makes for a quick boil
  • Choose exactly the temperature you want to heat the water to

3. Capresso® H20 White Electric Glass Tea Kettle

Capresso Glass Tea Kettle with a white base
Capacity1.4 L

We love the unique design of this electric kettle, with a round, stainless steel base and a glass kettle up top. When it comes to Crate&Barrel products, they are typically eco-friendly and health-friendly and they also have some of the most beautiful designs. That said, Crate&Barrel products have also been criticized for being less durable. This product, for example, has some negative reviews from people who claim that it breaks down quickly. But we opted to include this product because it does have a warranty, and their customer service team is said to be very kind and helpful if you need a replacement. 


The best part of this kettle may be the “look,” especially with the heat-resistant glass in the kettle; it can be fun to watch your water boil inside the top like a fishbowl effect.

Things to Consider

If you want to prioritize durability and resistance over design, then this may not be your best choice. But if you can take good care of a very pretty kettle, then it is likely to stun when you pull it out the next time you have friends over for tea.

4. ASCOT Electric Kettle

ASCOT Electric Kettle: Plastic-Free Option
MaterialStainless steel
Wattage1500 watts
Capacity1.6 L

This may be one of the most beautiful electric tea kettles that you can get with a unique design that is both retro and timeless. Above, we’ve posted a photo of the “cream” color, but this comes in a wide array of colors.

Because this is made from food grade 304 stainless steel, it is very easy to wash.


Don’t be fooled by the short spout; this has a neat pour, according to many reviewers. It also has a two-year warranty, so if anything breaks in the first two years, the company will replace it for you. 

Things to Consider

The top part of the kettle can get very hot. But other than that, this is a stunning design that you might like to feature prominently in your kitchen.

5. Adjustable Temperature Pour-Over Kettle

OXO Adjustable Temperature Kettle plastic-free electric kettles
MaterialStainless steel
Wattage1500 watts
Capacity1 L

OXO is great at thinking of the little details that make a product stand out. With this electric kettle, you can closely control the temperature of the water. You also might have noticed the thin, elongated spout, which offers a controllable, clean pour.


The handle and knob always remain cool to the touch. Completely stainless steel also offers a durable and easy-to-clean product.

Things to Consider

This product has hardly any negative reviews: it is durable, easy to use, effective, and quick. While it may not be as “cute” as some other items on the list, it is incredibly trustworthy and unlikely to ever cause you any headaches.
