I adore this kettle! I was looking for something to heat my water for tea in my college dorm room since I wouldn’t have a stove. I got this as a gift from my grandmother and it’s been wonderful. Not only can I heat my water to the perfect temperature to make anything from white tea to oolong to black tea, but my roommates can also boil water for tea bags and all of us can use it for, of course, Ramen. It heats the water incredibly quickly and the hold temperature button can be really helpful if I’m steeping my leaves again. I use it all the time. The cord is very short, but I’m definitely able to overlook that. It’s truly very wonderful and well worth the money.
