The Streetwize SWK2 12V kettle looks like a standard basic kettle but in a smaller travel format. It is made from a hard plastic material. The plug also is not detachable from the kettle.

It can hold 1 litre of water which is a huge amount of water in comparison to other travel kettles on the market. You will be able to get 3 cups of your favourite hot drink and means everyone in the car can get a hot drink when you stop off for a tea break. When the kettle is boiling you’ll find a red light comes on and you’ll know its ready to pour.

It takes about 15-20 minutes to boil when you have about half filled it. What I did find was that when you full it to its 1-litre capacity you are looking at least double the time of 30+ minutes, which I did not realise, at first we thought it wasn’t working. It is worth waying this up as with a quicker boiling kettle you could have made enough for the capacity it holds in a quicker time.

PROS:
  • Cheap and cheerful price
  • Standard kettle design
