Boil water at precisely the right temperature, with the KitchenAid Artisan Kettle Onyx Black. Easily set the temperature from 50°C to 100°C. The kettle has a short boiling time, which ensures you won't have to wait long for your cup of tea. When you hear the audio signal, you'll know the kettle is done boiling water. The thermometer at the front of the kettle indicates the temperature of the water. A useful feature when determining whether the water is still hot enough for making a second or third cup of tea. This kettle has a double wall, which helps keep the water warm longer, and the outside of this kettle feels less hot to the touch than average.
