We tested all the best kettles from Bosch to Russell Hobbs – and the winner could help cut your electricity bill | The Sun

IT’S time to test your kettle – and see if its up to the cost of brewing crisis.

With the price of electricity rising, not all kettles deliver cups of tea for the same cost efficiency.

So we tested eight kettles to see which one will cut the cost of your cuppa.

There are innovations, such as a vacuum kettle which keeps the water hot for four hours without using extra watts, and ones that heat to lower temperatures if you fancy a green tea.

We used an energy monitor to measure how many kilowatts each of them consumed.

So who lifted the cup for a budget busting brew?

Full 1.7litre kettle: 3 minutes and 36 ­seconds (179kWh costing 5p)
