KitchenAid KEK1222SX 1.25-Liter Electric Kettle Review

KitchenAid KEK1222SX is electric kettle with 1.25 liter capacity.


KitchenAid KEK1222SX heats up water fast but that’s partially because it holds less water than most other kettles. KitchenAid KEK1222SX has a capacity of 1.25 liters whereas industry standard is 1.7 liters.

KitchenAid KEK1222SX is advertised as BPA free kettle but it does have plastic part inside that cannot be removed. At this price point you would expect not to have any plastic parts that come in contact with water but unfortunately this is not the case with this specific kettle.

It has water markings inside the kettle which are not as easy to read as the ones you usually get on other kettles (on outside in the window).

Another interesting thing about this kettle is that you have to take the lid completely out, it doesn’t pop up like on most other kettles.


KitchenAid KEK1222SX is made of stainless steel and feels sturdy.


Design is the main selling point of this kettle. KitchenAid KEK1222SX is very aesthetically pleasing making it stand out among competition.


KitchenAid KEK1222SX 1.25 liter electric kettle is equipped with removable limescale filter.
