KitchenAid Electric Kettle

This KitchenAid electric kettle features an easy-to-read temperature gauge that rises as the water heats, setting it apart from other kettles. Use the lever to adjust the water's temperature (it ranges from 50 to 100 degrees Celsius) and then twist off the base to transfer it onto your table. The dual wall construction keeps the water hot longer, while the soft-grip handle makes it easy to hold. Plus, it's available in the brand's signature Candy Apple Red to match other KitchenAid appliances.

The trick to flavorful tea is water temperature. Delicate and green teas don't need boiling water for the best flavor, whereas black teas and French press coffee require hotter temps. Thankfully, this Cuisinart electric kettle makes it easy to reach the perfect tea temperatures with six clearly labeled preset functions. Simply press the button that matches the beverage you're brewing and the water will be ready in a few minutes.
