Yes, we know it's not a cheap tea kettle, but... it is fast, accurate and well built to last a lifetime. Think of what you spend on coffee makers and this seems pretty reasonable. For tea to reach its full flavor, it should be steeped at just the right temperature. The Cuisinart®: PerfecTemp™ Electric Kettle has 6 preset temperatures for different varieties of tea to help make life easy and delicious!
Equipped with 1500 watts of power for fast heating, this kettle brings up to 1-2/3 liters of water to a rolling boil in minutes.
Using the simple one-touch controls on the kettle's handle to select any of these preset temperature controls with indicators:
- Delicate (160°F)
- Green (175°F)
- White (185°F)
- Oolong (190°F)
- Herbal (200°F)
- Black (Boil – 212°F) - for black tea or to make instant cocoa, oatmeal, noodles, and more
The control panel also offers blue LED indicators, a "start" button, and a "keep warm" button, which will maintain the set temperature for 30 minutes. For added convenience, the kettle's 360-degree swivel base allows for pouring without the hassle of a power cord getting in the way, and its memory function makes it possible to remove the kettle from its base for two minutes without it shutting off or losing its place in the heating process.
The kettle is equipped with boil-dry protection. If it starts heating without enough water in the unit, the heater will automatically shut off to avoid damaging the heating element. The lights will flash and the unit will beep to alert you. Once the kettle has cooled down, lift it off the base, then replace it to reset and restart the heating cycle. The quickest way to cool down the heater is to fill the kettle with cold water; however, you can also wait for it to cool down by itself.
If the unit is not in use for 5 minutes, it will revert to sleep mode. The heater and all lights will be off, but your last selections will remain in the unit’s memory. To turn the kettle back on, simply press any button, or lift it up and then return it to the base.
Other highlights include a stay-cool nonslip handle, an "open" button for lifting the lid, a blue backlit water window with measurement marks, a concealed heating element to prevent mineral buildup, a removable/washable scale filter, a dripless pour spout, and boil-dry protection with auto shutoff for safety.
