Best Brita Filter Kettle UK

Brita is a known German company that produces water filters for jugs, kettles and faucet attachments that require disposable filters. They are ideal for their recyclability and are made from activated carbon, which is made from coconut shells. The activated carbon gets rid of substances such as chlorine, which have the potential to disrupt the water taste. They are also made up of ion exchange resin, which helps reduce limescale, copper, and lead. However, one should not confuse their functionality as water purifiers.

Brita Filter Kettles are ideal for you if you live in a region that has hard water. They remove any smell that may affect the taste of your hot water drinks such as coffee, tea and are even good for drinking water purposes. You can simply use the tap water in these filters thus, not having to rely on other water filtration systems. Lastly, these are environment-friendly as they are recyclable, hence proving to be better than traditional kettles.

Buying Guide:

The following factors can help you while buying a Brita filter kettle:

Filtration System:

Some kettles come with a detachable Brita filter system while some are built-in. Built ones are easier to use and only require refilling of water. Moreover having a filter indicator should be preferred, as the light turns on when it is time to replace the cartridge that consists of the Brita filters.


The design should enable you to see how which level the water is at for your convenience. So make sure to get the transparent or glass ones. Moreover, the 360 degrees base ones allow convenience in use whether you are left or right-handed.


One should get a kettle with at least 3000W power for heating which ensures minimal time required to heat and boil the water. The good news is that almost all the kettles available in the market fit this requirement.

Water Capacity

The water capacity should be of at least 1 liter, but some kettles go up to 1.5 liters, around 6 cups. The rule of thumb is, the greater the water capacity, the better.

Water Dispenser

Not all Brita filter kettles come with this, a water dispenser adds to style but is also practical as you can choose how many cups of water you need, and it only boils the amount required.

This kettle by Russell Hobbs, amongst many others, is a stylish looking kettle made of plastic, yet has a translucent design.
