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 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

Questions & Answers
Can I put water and loose tea inside the kettle and is the filter effective in that regard? Or is the filter for something else and I should only put water in the kettle?
Can the temperature setting be changed to turn off at approximately 200 degrees, the temp at which water boils at high elevations
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.
