    This kettle heats water quickly, and provides an audible beep when it is done, which is sufficient to be heard from another room without being overly obtrusive. When set to a particular temperature, it initially overshoots the target a bit, then stabilizes. The hour-long temperature hold (not available when targetting a full boil) is useful and works well. It would be nice to have a bit more granular control for the temperature or simply different set points. Many coffees and teas target 195 or 205 degrees, but adjustments are performed in tens, so it is only possible to do 190 or 200. This is mitigated by the aforementioned tendency to overshoot the target. Additionally, the display shows a live display of the current temperature, so it is possible to program the kettle to reach e.g. 190, then bump up the target and watch the display to stop when it reaches 195 (usually less than a minute later). A minor annoyance is that the kettle beeps five times one hour after it is turned on, even if it turned off automatically upon reaching a boil, or was manually turned off after reaching a pre-set temperature. It also beeps whenever it is lifted from or returned to its base. In addition to the removable tea infuser, there is a removable fine mesh filter which fits across the pouring spout. This has the side effect of substantially slowing down the speed at which water pours. Whether that is good or bad is a matter of opinion. As a bonus, the clear sides and blue light from the bottom look very cool as the water reaches a boil.

    Pros: -Transparent Glass: Will allow you to see the water levels with much ease [even has measurement markings too] -Tons of modes and temperature manipulation for a varied amount of tea preparations -The kettle itself is not wired: which makes taking it into a different room to serve company very simple. -Infuser: Lets you make a full pot of your favorite loose tea or you can just have the water heated to desired preference. -Alerts: Beeps nice and loud to let you know it's ready and have lovely blue LED lighting while it's heating the water. -Affordable: Got this on a black Fri and it was certainly a great value Cons: -Spout: I don't love the pouring spot on this kettle. It's a bit rounded and can sometime require a steeper angle to pour out it's content. -Difficult to clean: You can't remove the upper parts with lid and spouts are located. I recommend purchasing some good cleaning brushes with the length to let you get into the small areas to keep it nice and tidy.

    Good alternative to that expensive tea kettle

    There is a very expensive tea kettle out there that does it all. Programmable temperature and a tea infuser that automatically submerges for the right length of time. This kettle has all the temperature programability, but you have manually put the tea in the pot. For a fraction of the cost, I'll do the manual method. The temperature overshoots a bit. The temperature showed about 200F when the water was already boiling, then caught up. For black tea, they recommend 212F (boiling). I would use 205F instead. This will bring the pot to a boil (or nearly) and then hold it at 205. Perfect in my book. Not really designed for a cup or two of tea, this is really more for a big pot of tea (or a big pitcher of iced tea). If you aren't a tea fanatic, just buy a boiler without the programability (this brand or another).

    I changed from a Cuisinart water kettle to this after my Cuisinart had contact issues with the heating element less than 2 years after purchase. I wish this would display the current temperature of the water after turning it on. I think I will go back to a Breville which lasted me over a decade when this one decides to stop functioning when I did find a way after playing with it for a little bit. Ideally, Id like the display to read the current selected temperature after pressing the on button. Then after displaying the selected final temperature, show the current temperature. If you would like to see the final temperature selection and the current temperature. After pressing the on button, press the program button.

    Could be great, but...

    I used the kettle for two months before it started to act up. The water would not stop boiling no matter how low I set the temperature, and then it wouldn't shut off. I was doing things around the house and the water boiled completely away and it burned the bottom of the kettle. After that it quit working. I'm just glad that I was home and did not rely on the auto-shut off to turn it off. Beware of this! Their customer service is very hard to get a hold of, no body answers. Finally I went to the directory and punched in letters until I got a person. I sent them everything they needed and I am still waiting for a replacement. I hope the next one is better!

    Broke after 2 mo of use

    Loved this kettle until it suddenly stopped working. All the lights go on but the water doesn't heat. Best Buy won't refund or replace because it is past the Jan 15 deadline for holiday purchases. It's one thing that the US doesn't offer consumers the basic protections available in other countries; it's another when a major retailer that is totally dependent on reputation for service FAILS to ensure that it is selling quality products that will last. #DisgustedwithBestBuy

    Very nice tea kettle

    I purchased this during a deal of the day. It is a very nice kettle for the price and does a fantastic job brewing tea. The tea infuser is very nice and well constructed. The only complaint is cleaning. You can't submerge the carafe due to the heating element and the top isn't removable so it's a bit tricky to wash out and dry. For drying, a tip is to either let it dry upside down on a rack or leave the top open so it's exposed and dries faster to the air.

    Started off great.

    This kettle worked great for 11 months. Temperature control settings were fantastic and have completely spoiled my family to plain boiled water from the stove. However, after 11 months of normal use the kettle simply stopped working. It lights up and sets temps as usual, but no longer heats up the water at all. I reached out to the Chefman company since it's still under warranty (3yrs allegedly) and have yet to get a response from them although they "guarantee" responses within 24-48 hours. Very Disappointing!
