Great Boiling Performance

The Cuisinart has been equipped with a 1500W heating element, which provides enough power for quick heating. In fact, this kettle will bring your water up to boiling point in just a few minutes. Furthermore, the kettle has 6 preset heat settings, which give you the chance to determine the temperature at which you steep your tea.

The easy to control temperature settings vary between 160 degrees F and 200 degree F, for your delicate teas, green teas, white teas, oolong teas, French press coffee, black tea, instant cocoa, noodles, and oatmeal.

Convenient Swivel Base

Another notable feature of the Cuisinart PerfecTemp is its swivel base, which provides you with unparalleled convenience. This 360 degree base allows you to pour, fill, and serve the water, without the power cord getting in your way. There is also an innovative memory function for your convenience.

Easy to Use

It is always important to buy an electric kettle that is easy to use. That is why Cuisinart has designed this kettle with numerous user friendly features. These features include a nonslip handle that remains cool, an easy open lid for quick filling, a dripless pour spout for dry counters, a removable scale filter for clean drinking water, a lid release button for quick detachment, and a water window for clear views of the water. filling, a dripless pour spout for dry counters, a removable scale filter for clean drinking water, a lid release button for quick detachment, and a water window for clear views of the water.

Boil-Dry Protection

One thing that many electric kettle owners worry about is safety. Older kettles lack an auto shutoff feature, and this means that the kettle might boil itself dry and then started a fire. This will not happen with your Cuisinart, as there is boil-dry protection. If the water in the unit is too little to boil, the heater will shut off automatically so that the heating element is not damaged. There will also be an audible beep to alert you to what is happening.

Multiple Modes

Last but not least, the Cuisinart comes with two main modes; keep warm mode and sleep mode. The keep warm mode will keep your water at a desired temperature for half an hour- this temperature is just below the boiling temperature. The sleep mode will turn the heater and lights off after 5 minutes of no use.
