Tefal KI170D electric kettle testThe Tefal KI170D teapot has demon­strat­ed dur­ing tests that it is a well-bal­anced prod­uct and at the same time it is inex­pen­sive.

Small fea­tures are a two-sided fill­ing scale, which makes the device con­ve­nient for left-han­ders, but con­tains only three divi­sions. In addi­tion, the limescale fil­ter is easy to remove and put back after rins­ing.

The process of pour­ing water is quite accu­rate when rest­less, how­ev­er, if the jet is larg­er, the accu­ra­cy of fill­ing is reduced. And this elec­tric ket­tle when boil­ing is one of the loud­est.

Alternative: Tefal KI240D

The Tefal KI240D elec­tric ket­tle is essen­tial­ly a “big broth­er” with a much larg­er num­ber of addi­tion­al fea­tures. Dur­ing test­ing, he clear­ly demon­strat­ed that ket­tles can have more than just a pow­er but­ton.

Tefal KI240D can boast of many items of equip­ment, which pro­vid­ed this device with a record mark in the cor­re­spond­ing scor­ing dis­ci­pline of our rat­ing.
