I have been using various brands and styles of automatic electric tea kettles since our first visit to England in 1995.
I really like the way electric tea kettles quickly boil the water and shut-off automatically.
No more having a tea kettle boil dry on the stove when I get distracted!
This is my third Capresso Cordless Glass Water Kettle.
The difference in this one is that it has 5 temperature settings to accurately brew different teas.
A pull-out Temperature Guide with the correct temperature settings in case you don't know or forgot.
Boil - Black Teas
195 degrees Oolong Teas/French Press Coffee (but not in my house) *smile*
175 degrees - White Teas
160 degrees - Green Teas
100 degrees - Warming
You can purchase the Capresso PerfecTea at Amazon.com
By the way, we use our electric tea kettle often, not only for tea making,
but for any quick food or beverage requiring heated water.
Two things I want to mention about the glass Capresso,
I like to see the water coming to a boil through the glass, and
when the handle of a tea kettle is on the side, the hot steam does not burn your hand when you refill a hot kettle.
Please Note: I don't receive anything from the company, these are just my opinions, based on my experience.
How do you heat your water for making tea?
Do you have a favorite electric tea kettle?
