I love this Kettle.
Though, I do admit it is my first electric kettle, before it I was heating water and taking its temp on a stove top.
I find this kettle very user friendly and so far temps are accurate.
I use it roughly 3-6 times daily and have had for about 4 months now.
The only con I have found is the actually cleaning of the kettle.
It can not be immersed,so weekly I boil water with white vinegar in it to remove the water deposit that gathers in there (I have harder water) then boil plain water again and dump it before making my tea.
Clean the outside with a damp cloth.
But, I do not think that really puts a damper on how wonderful this kettle is!
Love it!

I’ve been using this for about 8 months now and I do love it. I’ve tested the water temperature for the buttons and I find that they are not 100% accurate, and they are certainly not accurate for the type of tea the buttons specify but I always boil water anyway and then cool it manually. It can be a bit loud, but I just turn the music up. Basically it does it’s job nicely and the preset buttons can be useful if you are aware of the exact temperature they reach.

i find it slightly unnerving that is says you drank this kettle…

Thanks for the cautions. It is easy to forget a kettle needs keeping and maintenance.

This arrived in the mail today and I am using it to brew my tea this evening. It is certainly easy to use. With a press of a button, I can control the brewing temperature of my tea. It heats up very fast and keeps the water heated (if desired) with a “keep warm” setting. So far, so good.

Love this kettle!! I have been using it almost a year now several times a day. The only issue I have with it is that the lettering is wearing off on the handle that shows the temperature for each button.

I love, love, love this kettle! I held out for the longest time, thinking my newfound love of tea was just a fad… but it wasn’t and I finally bit the bullet. It is especially nice if you sip white or green teas as you select the desired temperature. I have nothing bad to say about it.

As for cleaning it, try this tip: Put a tiny bit of liquid dishwasher detergent in the bottom, add a tiny bit of very hot water (1/2 cut) and use a bottle brush to scrub the instead. I also use this method on my metal thermoses and glass teapots. It removes all the tea stains every time (now if only I could use it on my teeth!).

Easy to use and while temperatures are not perfectly accurate its darn close.

Found mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond and the always available 20% off coupon was a nice discount.

I just bought this kettle yesterday, so my review will not really touch on any long-term problems it might have.

When I went to purchase an electric tea kettle I was looking for one that would let me set the temperature for the different types of tea I would be drinking. There were only four options for me and this was the only one that provided that. It was about $50 more expensive than the other ones as well.

SET-UP: It provides you with 6 different temperatures for 6 different types of teas. Delicate, Green, White, Oolong, French Press, and Boil (for black). I adored this feature. There is also a small meter that lights up bright blue (I find this very cool) that tells you how much water you have in the pot. There is also a “Keep Warm” button that you can press, and it will keep your water at that temp for up to 30 minutes. Besides the open and start button, that’s it, which makes it super simple to use.

PROS: I’ve already used it five times since getting it yesterday and it has not let me down. It does what it is supposed to perfectly, and also looks really freaking sweet in my opinion. It’s also super fast I think.

CONS: However, it does get very hot on the outside, which was something I was hoping it wouldn’t do since I have a pesky cat who likes to jump on the counters and sniff everything. When I touched it after setting it to boil, I burnt my hand in almost a second, so I have to really keep on eye on it for awhile during my tea sessions. The beep the signals when the water is done is also very quiet and you can hardly hear it when boiling the water. Oh, and I also forgot to mention its very loud. Almost louder than my previous basic stove top kettle. I can also see how down the line, cleaning it may become very annoying. I haven’t had to do it yet, but it looks like it would be hard to fit your hand in there and simply scrub it out. It would be a tight squeeze.

Overall though, it does what I wanted it to do so I can’t complain. I enjoy it and it’s so much faster than what I had to do before with my basic tea kettle, waiting forever for it to get to the right temp. and having to keep a close eye on the thermometer!

I have had this kettle for 4 months now and it is a must have. Before i bought this I used a stove top kettle because i didn’t see the need to spend more than 20 dollars on a way to heat up water. But i was wrong, far wrong. It used to seem like such a hassle to make tea, however it is now easier than making coffee. The kettle is very easy to use, it heats up very quickly, and keeps the temperature for 30 minutes. You can also press the keep warm button again after 30 minutes and it will do another cycle. Yes it is 100 dollars but if you drink tea as much as I do then I’m 100% confident you will not regret this purchase. Forgot to mention there is a 3 year warranty which replaces any kettle that poops out.( Mine is still working flawless after 3-4 uses daily for 4 months.)

I love this kettle. It is worth the price. Controls are simple. It heats quickly, a full kettle goes from zero to boil in about 5 minutes. Not the quietest thing on the market, but it’s not obnoxious. It beeps when ready, and the keep warm feature will maintain the temperature of your water for 30 minutes.

Settings for:
160/delicate…175/green…185/white…190/oolong…200/french press…boil/black

Highly recommend.

I love this kettle. The temperature settings are taking my tea drinking to a whole new level making sure I’m steeping at the appropriate temperature. And I love the keep warm feature for when I need more than one cup.
