What is a Water Boiler

There are plenty of various devices used to boil water. We need hot water for most of the meals - to brew coffee or tea, make some porridge, prepare soup, make baby food, etc. For all these purposes water boilers work the best. They don’t take too much time to reach to a boil and perfectly maintain the temperature at the pre-set heat. Due to the variety of water boilers on the market, anyone will find the best one for his/her needs. In our review, you’ll find water boilers of different sizes and with different functionality so it’s easy to make your pick!

Coffee connoisseurs will love making mugs of coffee with one of the coffee machines that we've picked for you. 

What Features to Compare

When it comes to buying a water boiler, you should primarily consider its Type and Performance. Typically, there are different types of electric water boilers you can choose from. However, the most popular ones are so-called thermo pots and boil-on-demand heaters. The water boiler performance directly depends on its water tank capacity and power. A thermo pot is a combination of a water boiler and a flask. Once you have boiled water in a thermo pot, you can be sure that the unit will maintain the internal temperature for a long time. Thus, using a thermo pot is the best way to have hot water available almost immediately for making instant coffee or tea. As a rule, such appliances are equipped with water capacity tanks ranging from 67 to 169 oz., that amounts to 2-5 liters. Usually, thermo pots require no special conditions for use, as they don't need permanent installation or water supply connection since the tank is filled up with water manually. In fact, their power usually ranges from 750 to 1000 Watts, which is quite enough for boiling water quickly. It should be noted that water boilers are commonly used for household purposes, or when holding public events. Meanwhile, boil-on-demand heaters are designed for the fast boiling of the small amount of water. Although these kitchen tools generally consume about 1000-1500 Watts, they boast high efficiency, since they use energy only to boil water. The water tank capacity is usually up to 1-2 cups of water (16-32 ounces). The tank is filled with water just before boiling. It should be pointed out that boil-on-demand heaters will suit any kitchen as they don't take up too much space thanks to their small size.

One more thing to consider while choosing the appropriate water boiler heater is its Features, which include different operating temperatures and dispenser types. Apart from water boiling, these appliances may have other useful features. For instance, a thermo pot can be used as a flask. Yet, simple thermo pots have only one temperature maintenance mode. Besides, some thermo pots allow you to select the desired temperature level from 3-4 available, which will keep the temperature steady for some time. This electric appliance is a great choice for tea lovers since different types of tea require different brewing temperatures. By contrast, boil-on-demand water boilers generally only boil water, or can heat it up to the desired level. Typically, most water boilers come with water dispensers. According to the model, they feature dispenser to fill a single cup or continuous mode for large water capacities. Besides, there are pot boilers, which come with an easy-pour spill-proof spout.

And the last but not least important feature is the Usability, which includes safety features and materials. In general, such appliances come with an auto shut-off mode, which turns the unit off if the water level in the tank is below the relief line. A dispenser auto shut-off is useful in case you press the button by accident. In addition, a tight-fitting lid is designed to protect you from hot water if you suddenly turn the device over. The lid is sealed when water is boiling, providing protection from steam. However, it doesn't permit you to fill up the water tank when the boiler is in use. Other convenient features include a water level indicator, which shows that you need to fill in the water tank and water level markings that help not to exceed the relief line. Furthermore, an LCD-display provides easy handling and control of the device operation. Comfortable handles and a detachable cord are handy for convenient transportation of the appliance. The boiler is easy-to-clean due to its stainless steel interior. Moreover, the unit is made of some dishwasher-safe components that greatly simplify its operation.
