If you linger too long and end up in a rush – there is an automatic shut-off feature to save the day.

This electric Kettle is very sleek in appearance and long on functionality. The kettle has no cords so pouring from it is easy. The corded heating base (contains the heating element) allows for 360 degree spinning of the kettle as it sits on top so regardless of where you are – accessing the kettle is safe and comfortable. The two minute memory feature allows the Cuisinart Perfec Temp Kettle to hold its preset temperature while being passed around by other family members or friends.


The water level is easy to track through the window located on the side of the Perfec Temp Kettle. A blue backlight provides just enough glow to see the water level marks. Operating the Perfec Temp Kettle is easy due to the start, the open and the six preset temperature buttons located on the upper end of the non-slip handle. The handle stays cool to the touch and the spout is non-drip.
