If you are on 10amp electric, a 2kw full (1.7lt) size kettle will be fine, if you are on 16amp electric, then a regular fast boil 3kw would probably be the best option.
I would go for a full size kettle if you have the space, if not then maybe 1.2lt, lots to choose from out there.
If the electric is metered, that would be a reason to go for a smaller kettle, a 1000 watt 750ml travel kettle will get to a rolling boil fairly quickly, and keep the electricity usage down.
I use a 550watt kettle that only takes 500ml of water and that gets to a rolling boil in 6 minutes, although I use a leisure battery with 600watt inverter for, so no mains electric for me, as you have electric a very low wattage kettle like mine, would not really be needed, unless you wanted to be ultra frugal.
