Almost 10 years after its introduction, the Breville One Touch Electric Tea Kettle is still an awe-inspiring appliance.
As its name implies, the One Touch makes perfect tea every time with the press of a button. Whether you’re working with loose leaf tea or bags (you should be using loose leaf), the One Touch utilizes a magnetic rail (!) to lower and raise its basket at the ideal intervals and temperatures, so that there’s literally no margin for error. While the One Touch includes presets for all tea types, you can also customize time and temperature to your liking.
I’ve extensively used almost every product Breville has released in the last decade, and while they’ve made winning strides into most kitchen appliance categories, their Tea Maker may just be their most perfect product, and my favorite.
