Kalorik Glass Water Kettle

The Kalorik Glass Water Kettle comes in black or grey and is a great way to heat water for tea, hot chocolate or other uses like instant oatmeal. The Kalorik Water Kettle has a separate base that plugs into your power outlet and is a simple way to heat water in about eight minutes.

The Kalorik Glass Water Kettle has a set of blue LEDs inside the water kettle around the bottom to light up your water as it comes to a boil. The on/off switch is on the bottom of the handle with a button on the top to open the spring loaded lid.

Base and Spout Filter

The glass water kettle with plastic and stainless steel accents pours well and includes a small screen that fits into the pour spout. I did a comparison and timed the water kettle which took almost exactly eight minutes to reach 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

This kettle does take about a minute longer to come to a boil than the previous two kettles I reviewed because it holds more water. The Kalorik Water Kettle holds 1.7 liters or 58 fluid ounce which is 7 full 8 ounce cups plus a little more.

While the Kalorik Glass Water Kettle does take a bit more time to come to a boil but it also holds more water than my previous water kettle reviews. The Kalorik Water Kettle works well and is easy to use with its simple design and nice easy pouring.

The Kalorik Water Kettle does have the flat bottom without anything on it so you can set the kettle on a table or counter directly. The bottom has a hole with the contacts for the base which has a safety connection without exposed contacts.

The base of the kettle is hard plastic on the bottom with a stainless steel band and does not get hot at all so it is safe to place on a table or counter. The handle does have a plastic strip to prevent your knuckles from coming into contact with the tempered glass of the kettle.

The only downside of the Kalorik Water Kettle I could find was the hard plastic bottom that may be a bit rough on your surfaces. Another water kettle I reviewed has foam rubber feet that I find I like a bit on my new countertop but the Kalorik kettle has not left any scratches on any surfaces.

I really like the simplicity of the Kalorik Glass Water Kettle and can easily recommend it for a stylish and simple electric water kettle.

Capresso Tea Kettle

The Capresso C100 Tea kettle is a temperature controlled water kettle that has settings for a range of teas and for warm water. The C100 tea kettle is an electronic kettle that has a base with temperature control and a short electric cord.

The C100 tea kettle from Capresso has a preset temperature that you select from the light up dial control on the base of the kettle. The temperature settings start with warming at 100 degrees and continue with green tea at 160, white tea at 175, oolong tea at 195 and black tea at 212 degrees.

whats in the box

The tea kettle has a temperature sensor in the kettle and a large domed heating element with a flip up cover and holds 6 cups of water. The kettle takes about seven and a half minutes to come to a full boil at 212 degrees Fahrenheit which is the perfect temperature for black tea.

The preset temperatures are a great way to get the right temperature for your tea every time whether it’s an herbal blend or a straight kind. The settings for the main tea types are great and from these you can use them to heat your water for any herbal teas or other blends.

bottom of c100 kettle

The Capresso C100 water kettle works well is a safe way to heat water due to the base element not being exposed and the automatic shutoff. The tea kettle will not boil dry and will shut off when it reaches the maximum temperature of the dial setting.

The Capresso C100 has a pour spout that has a nice steady stream when pouring and the lid is easy to use with one hand. The glass is from Schott glass that is a high quality glass designed for the kettle and high temperatures that the kettle heats up to.

c100 markings

The bright blue markings and maximum indicator are very clear when you fill the water kettle and especially when there is water behind the markings. The base of the water kettle has nice foam feet so the kettle will not scratch or scuff tabletops.

I had no problems using the Capresso C100 Water Kettle and am very impressed with this simple yet well designed electric kettle. I really like the Capresso C100 Water Kettle and highly recommend it as a safe and efficient way to heat water for tea and any other uses you need hot water.
