Foldable by name, and foldable by nature - in case you haven’t guessed we’re making a case for travel kettles of the compact kind! If you’re looking for a lightweight way to have a morning cup of tea or fill your instant porridge/noodle addiction, then these space-saving products below may deliver on all counts.
Although the shape and design may vary, all foldable electric travel kettles will fold neatly into themselves when not in use, and can neatly be packed away in your luggage. They can be a great asset for mobile office workers, construction site offices, or small kitchens. When making your buying choices consider the capacity you will need (often between 0.5 and 0.85 litres).
Listings often include shots of the full kettle, and it folded down so you can see how it would be stored, along with the full spec. Look out for dual voltage if you need worldwide use, and sourcing the necessary adapters. Some of the main differences will come in the hardware and settings, which could include manual adjust or auto-sense and switch voltage options, along with digital displays or twist dials.
Drill down the details and make your shortlist looking at capacity, size, and weight then look forward to added extras such as a protective travel pouch. There are products for family travellers, couples, and those with limited space in their bags, so if your hotel room, campervan, or office is currently sans kettle, why not take a look at the ones we love below.
