Whether your kitchen features pops of copper from a set of frying pans, or you're trying to match statement lighting, a copper kettle could be the perfect finishing touch.

We've trawled the web searching for the most stylish copper kettles out there, from popular brands with high customer ratings, too. This way you needn't leave your house to choose one, and you'll be making yourself a cuppa in style in no time.

We've found  options to suit a range of budgets and household sizes, and we've been sure to check on each kettle's energy rating, to stretch you pennies a little further.

Get searching for your new copper kettle now, and if copper isn't your colour, our ultimate roundup of the best kettles is here if you're not fussy about finish.

Our favourite copper kettles

Before you make a decision, it might be smart to bear in mind:

Capacity: It goes without saying that smaller households will be able to get away with a kettle with a smaller capacity. A 1.7 litre kettle can boil around six to seven cups at one time. Be sure to bear in mind how much space there is on your worktop if choosing a large capacity kettle.

Watt: The higher this number, the more energy it uses and the more expensive it is to boil this kettle. Find out how much it is to boil a kettle (roughly) right now.

Rapid boil: Thanks to this function, you can have a cuppa in 45 seconds or less. It's only on certain models.

Lid: Some kettles have easy to use push button lids, so that you can fill your kettle easier. Other models you'll need to remove the lid of the kettle, place it on your side whilst you fill it and reattach it to your kettle before pushing the on button. This is completely down to convenience.

How we chose these copper kettles

After spending a lot of time researching, we came to this list of copper kettles by comparing a range of models from leading retailers. We then ranked them based on their features and their customer ratings. 

We have reviewed a bunch of kettles here at Real Homes, so we already know what to look for in a decent model. Whilst none of the copper kettles we found have any high-tech features per se, such as temperature settings, a keep warm function or Wi-Fi compatiblity, there's no doubting that they will all look lovely on your kitchen worktop.

One of these kettles in this guide has been hands-on tested by a member of our team. We own one of the Smeg kettles, although in a black finish rather than copper. And we can more than vouch for this kettle's high quality finish and luxury looks. The rest have high ratings from other reviewers, or are from our most-trusted brands.

How do I clean my copper kettle?

Cleaning your copper kettle might take a tad more effort than cleaning a plastic version, especially if you want to ensure it always looks its best and is forever shining (and fingerprint free).

We've got an entire guide on how to clean a kettle, but for copper specifically you'll definitely want to get some polish, as well as a bottle of white vinegar paired with a cloth.

Copper kettles – just like their stainless steel friends – might need to be wiped down more often than other finishes. You can do this with a damp cloth and some white vinegar. Just remember to buff your kettle dry with something soft and dry, such as a cloth or a piece of kitchen roll. Never use a scourer on copper. Find out more about cleaning copper for further advice.
