Oh I love this kettle. It’s attractive, has a small foot print and heats water quickly and accurately. I love, love, love that it displays the actual water temperature and allows you to set whatever temperature you want in 1C increments.
The hold feature is nice, particularly for doing lots of gong fu infusions in short succession.
There’s a count up timer on it which is useful for really short steeps, but not so much for anything longer. The timer also only works with the kettle off the base, so you can’t use the timer and keep your water warm at the same time.
I wish there was a signal or something for when your water reaches the set temperature. With my old kettle I just waited for the click off sound, but this one clicks on and off repeatedly as it nears the desired temperature.
All in all though, I’m incredibly happy with this kettle. Not sure how I managed without it.
