Both the Cuisinart Electric Kettle CPK-17P1 and the Secura Electric Kettle SWK-1701DA offer high performance but with different design and user-friendly features. Although the Cuisinart costs more, it’s also better in every aspect.

While both run on 1500 W, the Cuisinart CPK-17P1 performs slightly better than the Secura SWK-1701DA in all of our tests. It boils water faster and more quietly, consumes less energy, and has a keep warm feature that lasts 30 minutes.
