I like this kettle about as much as I dislike its name “Enfinigy”, which means a lot. Leaving the ignition aside, the Zwilling kettle is absolutely atrocious. This model may not have as many bells and whistles as some of the others on our list, but for me, it’s a perfect size (1.5 liters) with a robust construction and a simple, eye-pleasing design. It also has a cooling exterior so the outside stays cool even as the liquid inside boils. Speaking of which, the Zwilling kettle was right on par with some of the fastest boilers in the group, it only takes 2 minutes 40 seconds to get up to temperature. It’s not the cheapest kettle we’ve tried by any means, but $80 is a decent price for the quality and added security that comes with a top brand of kitchens such as Zwilling. So with that (ugh, don’t make me repeat that), Enfinigy gets the overall top slot in our smackdown kettle.
