Julia Child let people in on the Cuisinart secret, and so did James Beard. They were among the first culinary experts to hail the food processor as a revolutionary kitchen appliance when it was introduced to America in 1973 by late Cuisinart founder Carl Sontheimer. They saw the food processor as a quick and easy way to make fine food and healthy dishes.
With the company under management from Conair Corporation since 1989, its legacy is alive and well. Today, Cuisinart is a universally recognized name, endorsed by culinary connoisseurs such as Jacques Pépin.
The prestigious Cuisinart brand is not limited to food processors. Plugged or unplugged, nobody covers the kitchen like Cuisinart. The company is a full kitchen resource with a wide array of products preferred by chefs and favored by consumers.
I was hesitant to purchase- I had read many conflicting reviews on these type of kettles. I can now say- those concerns are gone. Love this one- it has a great design for a small footprint on the counter. All the settings are on the handle. the only drawback is the width of the handle is wide even for my larger hand size. When the kettle is full I need to balance it with the other hand. Th heat settings all work great. I love the muted bell tone when the water is ready- no glaring buzzing to disrupt the peace. If you miss it - just look at the unit it is no longer blinking once it reaches the desired temp. The water level fill window is easy to see. Overall great design!!!
Being British in America can have its problems. Mainly due to the lack of good tea making abilities. This ingenious product fixes all of that by giving you the perfect temperature every time for what ever hot beverage you request and without the the problem of burnt bitter mistakes.
It comes with 6 settings Delicate, Green, White, Oolong, French press, and Boil/Coffee. with an automatic keep warm feature that lasts up to 30 min. The seems and filters are well made and the clean lines are nice. It even signals to let you know when its ready for you to pour with a single beep!
Given the system I think its a bit of a minor reach for the price but its well worth it in the end.
There only thing missing from this kettle is a basket option for loose tea/coffee, so it could make a huge pot of tea/coffee and a set alarm to tell it to heat water in the morning. There are Kettles out there that do that sort of thing but are about 4X the price. So save yourself from overspending on minor gimmicks and go for it
I was replacing a leaky electric kettle that was used everyday and was half the price of this one. I was reluctant to spend the extra money for this one, but I was willing to spring for it based on the excellent features and the stellar reviews. This tea kettle does not disappoint!
I love the ability to choose the temperature settings since I do drink many varieties of tea. But I especially love the keep warm setting and the beeper since I have a tendency to forget that I have turned the device on! The sleekness of the design...especially for a small kitchen is also a welcome feature.
In the end, the extra features are well worth the extra cost! I just hope this one lasts longer than my previous one and doesn't leak
Simply put....I don't know how I lived without this. I absolutely love tea and it takes so much better when it's prepared at the right temperature. This is so easy to use and I am so very happy with it!
This is a very durable kettle, and we have had several. The quality of Cuisinart is well known and this kettle doesn't disappoint. That said, they all wear out and on ours the lid warped and we could no longer open it. I wish they sold a replacement lid
what are the 6 temperature settings that are available?

Best Answer:Using the simple one-touch controls on the kettle's handle, select 160 degrees F for delicate teas, 175 degrees F for green tea, 185 degrees F for white tea, 190 degrees F for oolong tea, 200 degrees F for French press coffee, and "Boil" for black tea or to make instant cocoa, oatmeal, noodles, and more.
Does this show fingerprints and other marks the way so many large ss appliances do? I saw some ss electric kettles in a store (not SLT and not this kettle) the other day and they all looked terrible. I don't want to have to keep after it with stainless polish.

Best Answer:This is made of brushed stainless steel, so the chances of it showing fingerprints are slim. It shouldn't stain
Best Answer:There isn't a shut off temperature, but rather a shut off time. It will shut off after 2 minutes off of the power base.It does however have 6 preset temperatures & will stop heating once it reaches the selected temp
