Given the simplicity of an electric jug, you might expect them to all be the same – but they’re not. We’ve tested dozens of models for their ease of use, noise, boiling performance and energy efficiency.
Overall score breakdown
Overall score is made up of:
Ease of use (40%)
Boiling performance (10%)
Energy efficiency (10%)
Noise was assessed midway through boiling-up and from 1m away. The higher the decibel reading, the louder it is. Quieter is better, so our “Test results” score for noise is an inverse rating. High dBA = low %; Low dBA = high %. As an example, 49dBA is reasonably quiet, so our score is 90/100; 60dBA is significantly louder, so our score is 60/100.
We've tested 45 jugs and kettles.
