One of the first things many of us will want to do after pitching up at our chosen campsite is to pop the kettle on so you can sit back with a cup of tea and soak up the view. To do this, you’ll want to make sure you have the best caravan kettle for the job.

To help you pick out the right caravan kettle, we’ve taken a look at the numerous options on the market and are sharing our top picks that are currently available, featuring brands such as Quest, Vango, Quest and Russell Hobbs.

The best caravan kettles: our top picks

Outwell Collaps Kettle

Collaps Kettle

  • Weight: from 500g
  • Capacity: 1.5l – 2.5l
  • Wattage: N/A

Reason to buy:

  • It’s collapsible and space-saving

We’re big fans of this collapsible caravan kettle from Outwell. Coming in a choice of colours, including green and midnight black, the BPA-free product can be made to go completely flat when you’re not using it, giving you a space-saving way of enjoying a cup of tea on tour.

We like how easy it is to fold, taking only a matter of seconds to collapse and then get back into shape when you’re next in need of a cuppa.

The break resistant kettle can even be placed on direct heat (although not in an induction hob or in a microwave oven), and upon your return from your tour, it can be given a thorough clean in the dishwasher. You can also choose the size that is best suited to your needs, as it’s available as both a 1.5 litre and 2.5 litre option.

Outdoor Revolution Premium Low Wattage 1.7L Electric Kettle

  • Weight: 1 kg
  • Capacity: 1.7l
  • Wattage: 1000-1200W

Reason to buy:

  • Well-suited for families on tour thanks to high capacity

This stylish stainless steel caravan kettle from Outdoor Revolution provides a 1.7L capacity, and has a concealed stainless steel element.

Thanks to the twin water-level indicators, it shouldn’t be a problem to keep an eye on how many cups you’re boiling in the 1000-1200W kettle.

While it weighs 1kg, making it one of the heavier options on our list, it does come with a water filter that can be removed for easy washing.

Vango Stainless Steel Whistling Camping Kettle

  • Capacity: 2 litres
  • Weight: 430g
  • Wattage: N/A

Reason to buy:

  • Good capacity, clever fold-in handle

This two litre caravan kettle is ideal for anyone who wants to heat their water on the gas hob. We like that the heat resistant handle can be cleverly folded in, offering the type of space-saving practicality we love to see from the accessories we take on tour with us.

As well as this, it comes with a completely detachable lid, making it easier than ever to fill. Then, once the water is fully boiled, the spout will whistle, letting you know you can finally make your well-deserved cup of tea.

Quest 1 Litre Kettle

  • Weight: 780g
  • Capacity: 1 litre
  • Wattage: 915-1080w

Reason to buy:

  • Compact, washable filter

Compact and smart, this kettle from Quest is a worthy contender in our best caravan kettle round-up. One of the things we like about the small kettle, which is BPA-free, is that it will add a touch of style to your tourer’s work surface.

While it’s not collapsible, it is easy to store away when you’re not planning to use it. We also like that the product only weighs 780g and has a low wattage of 915-1080W.

Coming with a filter that can be removed and washed, you can hinge its lid to give you some easy filling.

The inclusion of a water level indicator will let you easily keep on top of how much water is in the kettle too.

The wide spout makes it easy to pour out the water, while boil dry protection means you don’t have to worry about it overheating.

Its automatic switch-off will mean the 1000W kettle will turn itself off too.
