Electric kettles are designed to boil water rapidly, usually within a few minutes. On average, an electric kettle uses about 1400 watts. Their efficiency in heating water quickly makes them more energy-efficient than boiling water on a stove.

Key Factors Affecting Energy Usage:

  1. Boiling Time: The time it takes to boil water depends on the amount of water and the starting temperature. More water or colder starting temperatures will require more energy.
  2. Kettle Efficiency: Modern electric kettles are designed to be highly efficient, with features like automatic shut-off once the water reaches boiling point to save energy.
  3. Usage Frequency: Frequent use will increase overall energy consumption, but the rapid boiling time keeps it relatively low compared to other methods.

Electric kettles provide a fast and efficient way to heat water, making them a staple in many households for their convenience and energy savings.
