The Hamilton Beach Smart Electric tea kettle is a breeze to use. Kitchen appliances have come a long way from just a decade ago, and the Hamilton is characteristic of that. It doesn’t just boil water, it heats it to the precise temperature you want it to. You can choose any temperature you desire between 100 and 212°F.
Hamilton Beach Smart Electric Tea Kettle Overview
With 1500 watts of power, it easily brings 1.7 liters of water to a boil in just a couple of minutes. And, it can keep what it has already boiled warm if you are not ready to use it. Just tell it what you want.
The Hamilton is also compatible with Alexa, Amazon’s voice control hub. Just an easy scan of the bar code at the bottom of the kettle gets you paired with Alexa and you will be able to tell Alexa exactly what you want from the kettle.
From setting it up to begin boiling at a certain time, so you can come down to the kitchen in the morning and have the hot water for your tea waiting for you. Or, you can phone it in on your way back with the Alexa app, and the water is boiled to the precise temperature you wanted. Having it connected to your phone also gives you peace of mind. You never again have to worry whether you turned your kettle off.
Not all your warm beverages need 212°F water. While black tea can take 212, green tea prefers a temperature between 150 and 180°F. This kettle takes care of that. It even comes with fifteen presets for temperatures best used in common beverages.
Its functionality is undeniable, but what is even better is the way it stands tall on the kitchen counter. The Hamilton kettle is a handsome appliance, with a brushed stainless steel body and a black base, handle and trim. The base houses an LCD and the buttons you need to control the functions if you chose not to use Alexa or the app on your smartphone.
Then there is the fact that there is no cord that follows the kettle when it s time to pour. That convenience is something you have to love. It gives it a less cluttered feel without wires constantly getting in the way.
Inside the spout, there is a mesh to trap hard water deposits. Running the kitchen faucet is easy enough and clears the spout out effectively. The Hamilton kettle is not dishwasher safe, so you’ll need to wash it manually which is easy enough to do.
The only downside about the kettle was that it does not have a level or a window to look in to see the water level. It’s a personal choice to choose between the aexthetis of a unibody construction that has no viewing portal in the body, or the extra step of opening the lid to take a peek. Judging by the comments across social media, it wasn’t a problem. Most people loved the aesthetics.
