Our research

Kettle reviews you can trust

We test kettles from the biggest brands, and cheaper own-brands, at the Which? test lab. We test each kettle to find out how quickly it boils, how much noise it makes and how easy it is to use. So when a kettle does brilliantly in all of our tests, you'll know it'll be great when you get it home.

Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
