Forget the microwave. Tea just tastes better when the boiled water comes from a kettle.
Luckily, you don’t need a stove to get your water boiling. An electric tea kettle can boil water in less than 60 seconds, and a gooseneck style can ensure a more controlled pour. Case in point: Check out the Willow & Everett Electric Gooseneck Kettle, which more than 1,000 Amazon shoppers give five out of five stars.
“It’s small but mighty,” one reviewer wrote. “I read that the gooseneck was great for pouring the hot water over coffee and tea, and I was skeptical. But as a big time tea drinker, I really found that it helps get the tea brewing.”

The one-liter cordless kettle quickly heats water with the flip of a switch. Simply fill the stainless steel kettle with water, place it on the heating base and flip the switch. A light will turn on while it boils, and the kettle will auto-shut off when it’s done. It boils enough water for about two to three cups of tea or pour-over coffee.
As for design, it has an air-tight spill-free lid to keep your hands safe from scalding water, plus a BPA-free plastic handle for holding onto while pouring. There are no chemical linings or plastic on the inside, just food-grade steel. So, the boiled water is safe and pure.
Another Amazon customer called it an “excellent minimalist kettle.”
“Love it, for what it is: small, elegant, simple kettle. No adjustable thermostat, no ‘keep warm’ feature — just an on switch that automatically shuts off when the water boils,” the same customer explained. “It’s got an especially nicely formed tip on the end of the spout; no drips, great control of where the water goes.”
If you are looking for a tea kettle with more bells and whistles, Willow & Everett makes a similar gooseneck electric kettle with temperature control and presets. For an additional $11, you can choose the exact temperature of your water — and keep water warm for your next cup.
No matter which tea kettle you choose, both heat up water fast for a speedy tea (or coffee) time.
