The Morphy Richards Chroma 101205, one of twelve new kettles we've tested - but is it a Best Buy?

Which new kettle has been crowned king of all kettles? Find out now as our latest kettle test results are just in.

The best kettle in our latest tests scored a huge 86% overall - higher than any other kettle currently available.

It’s speedy – it boils four cups in less than two and a half minutes – and you can boil one small cup of water at a time. It’s easy to fill, carry and pour, and is great if you live in an area with hard water, because the filter does an excellent job of keeping limescale out of your tea.

New cheap Best Buy kettles

The latest kettle reviews also include two affordable Best Buys which cost £30 or less. Both kettles boil quickly, have large water windows on each side - so you can clearly see how full they are - and are very easy to use.

We've pitted these cheap kettles against more expensive rival kettles from Jacob Jensen and Kenwood. The Kenwood Persona SJM610 kettle lets you set the brewing temperature between 70°C and 100°C - useful if you're making green tea or coffee and don't need to heat water to 100°C - but just how quickly does it boil? 

Our latest round of testing also included Argos kettles, Dualit kettles, Morphy Richards kettles, Prestige kettles, Russell Hobbs kettles, Sage kettles, Sainsbury's kettles, Waring kettles and Wilko kettles.
