MIE Smart Kettle
The smart kettle MIE Smart Kettle appears to be an alternative version of the E.Zicom Aromatea, without brewer, but with a 13-position thermostat from 40 to 100 degrees Celsius and a tea brewing function from 1 to 20 minutes. It has everything you need for comfortable use: a display, a timer, a keep-heat mode, a power indicator along with a removable lid (for easy washing of the kettle). Except that the control function through a gadget is missing.
The body material here is a combination of metal and glass, and the heating element is a closed stainless steel spiral. The maximum power of MIE Smart Kettle is 1200 W, which is enough to heat 1.7 liters of water. This is a good model that is highly reliable and visually beautiful.
- The presence of a step temperature regulator with 13 positions;
- tea brewing function;
- Excellent work quality and a high degree of reliability;
- not detected.
REDMOND SkyKettle M173S-E
The heir to the SkyKettle M171S is the runner-up in our current ranking. In its characteristics you can find a lot of nuances, favorably distinguishing the current representative from its predecessor. For example, the maximum power was cut to 2200 W without reducing the heating speed component. Integrated discrete thermostat, which allows you to smoothly adjust the temperature of the water heating in the range from 40 to 100 degrees Celsius. And, at the same time, display it all on your smartphone screen in real time!
As the body material of the smart kettle REDMOND SkyKettle M173S-E remained faithful to the metal, not to lower the bar for time to maintain a set temperature (12 hours). On the whole, the model has not moved away from the canon at all, becoming a bit more expensive, but incorporating many more quality innovations that made it into the top.
- 12 hours of maintaining the set temperature of the water;
- The presence of security systems (power on lock without water, auto shut-off when removed from the stand);
- Discrete switching thermostat.

Xiaomi Mijia M
tifunctional Electric Cooker
E.Zicom Aromatea – a really cool new generation gadget made especially for fans of tea drinking and tea ceremonies. Despite the low power consumption (the power of the model is only 1000 watts), it heats up to 1.7 liters of water quickly enough, allowing you to maintain the temperature for 30-40 minutes. This is due to the combination of glass and metal in the construction of the body.
A special addition from the category of accessories is the presence of a teapot with baskets for classic tea and Aromatik tea, as well as a spoon. Thanks to the stepped thermostat E.Zicom Aromatea provides water heating up to 37-100 degrees Celsius, with the ability to continuously adjust the desired temperature using the display. It’s a great attribute for tea lovers, with a beautiful design, but without obvious safety features.
- low power consumption;
- The ability to adjust the water temperature from 37 to 100 degrees Celsius;
- there is a teapot with baskets;
- Preservation of the set temperature function.
- lack of safety features.
REDMOND SkyKettle M171S
The REDMOND SkyKettle M171S got into the rating because this smart kettle can keep the set temperature of water for up to 12 hours. This is the best result among all representatives of the list. However, for such a good function it had to “pay off” power characteristics: 2400 watts can be very much for a home power grid.
But what else can we get in exchange for precious energy? First, the function of controlling the start-up process from your smartphone (via Bluetooth and a special program). Secondly, the ability to heat without boiling, lock start without water and auto shut off when removed from the stand. And finally, third, all-metal body with a heating coil, water indicators and a functioning display. Even the buyers themselves consider this to be a bargain!
- The ability to keep the water temperature for up to 12 hours;
- control from a smartphone;
- an abundance of safety features;
- kettle ergonomics.
- high power.
Element El’kettle WF11MB/MW
A more interesting model of smart kettle is the Element El’kettle WF11MB/MW. The more powerful 2200 W model is equipped with a step thermostat with the ability to heat water up to a temperature of 60 to 100 degrees Celsius. Body is made of solid metal, no plastic or glass, and all filtration and heating elements are stainless steel.
The decisive advantage of this smart kettle over its competitors is the audible indication of all actions performed. Of course, in actual use, the sound emitted can be annoying, which entails a decrease in ergonomics, but gives an undeniable “plus” security. Also note the standby water level indicators, the presence of backlight when the kettle is in operation, the current temperature display and the function of keeping warm for up to 30 minutes.
- The internal volume is 1.7 liters;
- The presence of a step temperature regulator;
- digital indicators and audible notification of all actions;
- Weighs 1.35 kilograms.
- deliberate reduction of ergonomics through sound;
- high power consumption.
