Attractively housed in brushed stainless steel, this electric kettle not only looks great in any contemporary kitchen, but it also quickly brings up to 1-2/3 liters of water to a rolling boil. To use, simply fill the kettle at the sink using the water-level window to gauge how much, return the kettle to its power base, and flip the switch to "on". In a matter of minutes, hot water will be ready to use for anything from tea, instant coffee, and hot cocoa to instant soup or oatmeal. Simply lift the jug off its 360-Degree power base for graceful serving without the hassle of a cord, and return it at any angle. The kettle shuts off automatically once water has reached a full boil, and its boil-dry protection ensures safety and peace of mind--no need to worry about the kettle operating without water inside. Other highlights include a concealed heating element, an "on" indicator light, a non-drip spout with a removable fine-mesh filter, a large stay-cool loop handle, and cord storage under the base for keeping excess cord wrapped neatly out of sight. The water kettle measures approximately 9 by 6-1/2 by 10-1/5 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.
