Water Tank Capacity

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

Power

'Power' is a measurement of the power of the kettle, measured in watts.

A kettle with more power will be able to heat a larger quantity of water faster, making it more efficient.

Water Level Indicator

'Water Level Indicator' denotes whether the kettle clearly shows the current amount of water in the tank.

A water level indicator makes it easy to see how much water is left in the kettle, and whether it needs to be topped up or not.
