Woollens? Check. Socks? Check. A Cozy room? Check. You guessed it right – winter is here, and so are the chills. Wrapping yourself up in blankets and enjoying hot beverages becomes our priority. But, the water gets cold in winters and takes longer to boil on the stove top. So, if you wish for hot water instantly, an electric kettle is the perfect kitchen appliance. 

Studies suggest that an electric kettle is 80% more efficient than a stove or microwave. So, are you planning to buy one to chase away the winter blues? There is a possibility that you might get confused, given the number of brands available online. But, don’t you worry, here are some essential tips that will help you choose the right electric kettle.
