Electric kettles is such a basic appliance it might seem they all are pretty much the same but that’s not the case. A lot of things differentiate a good electric kettle from a bad one, like quality (how well made and long lasting it is), materials used (some materials can infuse water with chemicals that are harmful to health), features (like dry-burn protection) etc.
MEGAWISE CX-817 1500W is the best selling recently released electric kettle, so how good is it?
It terms of boiling water MEGAWISE CX-817 1500W performs well in a sense it manages to get water to boiling point faster than most other electric kettles. It has a maximum water capacity of 1.8 liters (~2 quarts) and brings that amount to boiling point in under 10 minutes.
Most electric kettles indicate that they have finished heating water with a simple click sound which can be easy to miss at times. MEGAWISE CX-817 1500W has LED lighting around the base that lights up when you start the heating process and turns off when it ends, so if you see that base is not illuminated you can be assured that heating process has finished.

MEGAWISE CX-817 1500W automatically turns off within 20 seconds after water has started boiling. It also has dry boiling protection and will automatically shut off within 20 seconds of dry burning.
MEGAWISE CX-817 1500W electric kettle is made of BPA-free materials like 304 stainless steel and heat resistant borosilicate glass with no plastics touching water preventing contamination with harmful materials.
It feels well made, only complaint is that glass could be thicker but that’s nitpicking.
