With 1500 watts of power, this electric kettle quickly brings up to 1-3/5 liters of water to a roiling boil--great for hot chocolate, instant coffee, oatmeal, instant soups, noodles, baby formula, and more. Simply add water, close the lid until it locks securely into place, and push the power switch located on the power base. The uniquely designed appliance not only provides a tempered-glass carafe for viewing the boiling process, but it also comes with a stainless-steel tea infuser that accommodates both loose-leaf and bagged teas, making it possible to brew a variety of teas right in the pot after the water has boiled.
Best of all, the unit's patented Strix electric connector delivers power to the kettle through its stationary base, which means the kettle can be lifted off the base for graceful pouring without the hassle of a cord. The kettle also swivels 360 degrees in either direction on its base, making it a comfortable choice for both right- or left-handed users. For safety and peace of mind, the unit automatically turns off once water comes to a boil or if the kettle's empty.
Other highlights include an "on" indicator light, a cool-touch handle, a decalcification filter, an easy-to-clean design, and cord storage in the base. The electric water kettle and tea brewer measures approximately 9 by 7-2/7 by 8-3/5 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.
