There was no alternative before. If you want to quickly boil water for tea, buy an electric kettle . Today, another useful device called thermopot appeared . How does it differ from a kettle and what is better to buy for everyday use?
The device is very similar to an electric kettle , but has a number of features:
The water in it remains hot for several hours.
Its volume is larger.
Uses less electricity when heating.
Let's start with the fact that the capacity of a thermopot is always greater than that of an electric kettle. A standard kettle holds 1.5-2 liters of water on average. To pour water into a cup, you need to lift it, move it from place to place or tilt it. But we can pour up to 5 liters of water into the thermo pot, and there is no need to lift it . Just put the cup under the spout and press the button. It is very convenient for children, sick and weak people, disabled people who find it difficult to bend and hold heavy dishes filled with liquid.
But the main difference is that the thermopot , after boiling, can keep the temperature of the water inside the flask constant, and thus resembles a thermos.
In many models, you can choose the temperature level yourself. Periodically, the device will turn on and heat the water. The teapot does not have such an opportunity.
The thermopot has less power, so it will take much longer to boil water the first time than an electric kettle . However, after the water boils, it will take about a minute to reheat. Such properties are very convenient for a large family or work team.
Remember how often you ask whether the kettle has been boiling for a long time , and if it has managed to cool down even a little, then you press the button and wait for it to boil again. With thermopot , the waiting time is significantly reduced, and at the same time electricity is saved. In addition, the liquid hardens much more slowly due to the heat-insulated flask.Thermopot Electric kettle Volume 3-6 l1-2 l Power 0.7-0.8 kW0.8-3 kW Additional features Display, water dosing, heating to the desired temperature, hand pump360 degree rotation, lid fixation, backlight
Both devices are heated by electricity. Both the kettle and the thermopot have a spiral or disc heating element. It is best if it is closed, because in this case scale does not form on it.
For the convenience of determining the amount of liquid, the kettle and thermopot are equipped with a scale. By looking at it, we can find out whether it is necessary to add water.
The most common material for the case is plastic. There are also ceramic, metal, and glass teapots. Thermopots are mostly plastic on top, and inside there is a metal or glass bulb. Although there are completely metal or glass models.
The cost of a thermopot is usually higher than the cost of a kettle .

The disadvantages of the thermopot include its serious dimensions, which are of significant importance when using the device in small apartments.
The body of the heated thermopot has a temperature of over 40 degrees, which is a disadvantage in the hot season.
The capacity of the thermopot is directly related to the time of its initial heating, if the capacity of the device is more than 4 liters, then the boiling time will be approximately half an hour.
Currently, there are many low-quality models on the market, which are characterized by a long time for boiling water, an unpleasant smell due to the use of low-quality materials, which does not justify the rather high cost of the device.
Summarizing all of the above, we can say that for a large team or constant consumption of hot water, it is more profitable to buy a thermo pot . If we need boiling water only 1 or 2 times a day, then it is better to buy a simple electric kettle .
