Do you hate waking up in the morning, bleary-eyed and puffy-faced, only to wait around for eons while the water for your morning coffee boils? I know I do. In this day and age, sacrificing convenience and time isn’t just annoying – it’s often needless as well.
Many people would assume that something as insignificant as a good water kettle can’t make a positive difference in their lives. Sure, having a reliable, fast-boiling water kettle may not completely revolutionize the way you live your life, but it sure can make it a little easier.
To this effect, Xiaomi makes a great line of water kettles, and this article will be comparing two of them: the mid-range Xiaomi Mijia Electric Water Kettle, and the high-end Xiami Mi Electric Water Kettle.
Let’s start off with the Xiaomi Mijia Electric Kettle. Priced at the US $32.99, this Xiaomi kettle comes with all of the basic features one would expect in an electric water kettle to have. One of the nicer aspects of this kettle is that it has an unusually large capacity at 1.5 liters, which means that you won’t have to boil water multiple times in order to serve others (or yourself).
The Xiaomi Mijia also features a stainless steel inner layer and an anti-scalding layer of insulation between the inner and outer layers of the product. Both of these are obviously useful features of the product, provides a Mijia user with a rust-free, safe experience. Overall, the Xiaomi Mijia is a wonderful mid-range electric water kettle, featuring some nice tech such as a rapid 5-minute heating time.
Where we kick things up a notch, however, is with the Xiaomi Mi Electric Water Kettle. This thing is the real deal. Not only does it provide users with all the features of the Xiaomi Mijia, but this water kettle also incorporates a pretty unique feature into its design: smartphone app-controlled heating.
Yeah, you heard that right. Ever had a morning where you didn’t want to get out of bed and stand on a cold floor waiting for the water to boil? With this kettle, you don’t have to. Simply download the companion app, wake up in the morning, set the water to your preferred temperature via smartphone, and wait for the water to boil in bed.
This integration of smartphone app-controlled heating means that the Xiaomi Mi will set buyers back a bit – $62.98 USD to be precise – but if you’re a fan of convenience and quality, it’s well worth it.
Overall, both of these Xiaomi kettles have their own advantages. If you have the money, I’d suggest the Xiaomi Mi- the ability to control the water temperature with the swipe of a smartphone screen is just too convenient for me to ignore. However, if you don’t mind paying less and getting a little less convenience in return, the Xiaomi Mijia is also a great kettle for its price range.
