Crew Review: Bonavita Travel Kettle
If you’re looking for a traveling companion for your spring break plans, then you need the Bonavita Travel Kettle! Whether you’re traveling within the US or to Europe, this series has got you covered with the Bonavita Dual Voltage Travel Kettle and Bonavita Mini Travel Kettle.
In this Crew Review, Gail wants to see which one will brew faster. Which one do you think will win? Find out by watching the video below or continue reading. Ready. Set. Go!
Here are some stats to help you guess which one will win. Both kettles hold half a liter of water despite the different heights (you can see the Dual Voltage is taller). They both auto shut-off once it's boiling to save the heating element from burning out—a must-have when traveling because who wants that added stress?
The real differences come down to the power. The Dual Voltage model features a 700-watt heating element for fast boiling. This travel kettle model, though, can switch from 120 to 220 voltages, which is great for traveling in Europe. It doesn’t come with a converter plug-in so you’ll have to grab one of those separately.
The Mini is built for traveling within the US. Its itty-bitty size is packed with 900-watts for boiling super fast (no spoilers! You’ll know the winner soon enough). Its smaller size takes up less real estate in an office or suitcase and as long as you only need it for US travels, it’s a great little companion!
The winner is the Mini Travel Kettle!
The Mini boiled the fastest at four minutes with the Dual Voltage right behind it at about five minutes. So what you’d really want to look for in these travel kettles is how often you’ll need the dual voltage.
