Which? has been scouring the web this week for the best online deals on the Eco Kettle 3, a kettle that only boils the amount of water you need in order to cut unnecessary energy use.
The third model from the popular Eco Kettle range, aptly called the Eco Kettle Eco 3, is just back from the Which? test labs – and you could get hold of one yourself for a cut price from the Eco Outlet.
It’s currently on sale there for £39.95 – £10 off the RRP – but apply discount code ‘ecologist10’ at the online checkout for an extra 10% off, taking it down to £35.95 (not including the £4.95 shipping charge).
How eco-friendly are Eco Kettles?
We’ve put all the Eco Kettle family to the test in the Which? test lab to find out if they score highly enough on factors including energy efficiency to achieve a Which? Best Buy recommendation – including the original Eco Kettle, the Eco Kettle Eco 2 and the latest Eco Kettle Eco 3.
Unlike regular kettles, the Eco Kettle has a dual-chamber design to save energy and time. It works by allowing you to fill the kettle with water but only releases the amount you actually want to boil – from one 200ml cup to its full 1.5l capacity – at the touch of a button.
This model also includes a temperature selector enabling you to heat water at either 80, 90 or 100 degrees according to what drink you’re making, which could save you a few extra pennies on your electricity bill.
