What is the best kettlebell for the money? I’m glad you asked!
Although all kettlebells somewhat look the same – they definitely are not. Grip size, materials, shape, and balance are just some of the differences that impact the final product.
Taking this into consideration, I spent just about 13 hours reading dozens of product descriptions and user reviews. So you don’t need to. Here is a quick glimpse at my top three models:
- Amazon Basics Iron Kettlebells (THE EDITORS CHOICE): With a wide and ergonomic grip, and smooth vinyl coating, the Amazon Kettlebells are comfortable and easy to use – for both beginners and seasoned trainers. The friendly price tag and high-quality build make these kettlebells my undisputed editors’ choice.

Made from cast iron and covered vinyl, they perform just as well as many of the twice as expensive models. Although not the same balance and feel as the two other models, these are an excellent buy also.
