Vegan Kitchen Tools Cuisinart PerfecTemp™ Cordless Electric Water Kettle
Variable Temperature Control and Large Capacity The Cuisinart PerfecTemp™ Electric Kettle is a delight to the eye and very functional in an all stainless steel kitchen! It has 6 preset temperatures for different varieties of tea that I like to brew throughout the day. And the 1500-watts of power provides fast heat-ups, and a Keep Warm Option maintains the chosen set temperature for 30 minutes in case I get side-tracked doing something else. The kettle can even be removed from the power base for up to 2 minutes without shutting off.
The swivel base makes it easy to pick up and replace the kettle easily. And I prefer a stainless steel interior over the plastic found in the Bodum. The full spectrum of heating temperatures also makes it fast and easy to create the perfect cup of tea or soaking ingredients called for in recipes.

Depending the water you have and its mineral content, the inside of the kettle may start looking peculiar... speckled or rough. This is not anything bad, but it may scale off into your beverages and look unsightly. I live in Portland, OR and the water is pristine and a pH level of 7, so I never have any scale buildup. But if you do, use 1 cup white distilled vinegar and fill the kettle with water and give it a full boil. Empty and rinse several times and the interior stainless steel will be completely smooth, clean, and brand-new again.
Bodum Water Kettle The Travel Kitchen Water Kettle The Bodum Ibis Water Kettle not only heats quickly by way of a stainless steel heating coil inside the kettle. It sits on a base and is cordless when removed from the base. The oval black or white version holds 1.7 liters (50 ounces) of water. The heating element produces 1500 watts of energy to heat the contents FAST... 2 to 4 minutes!

HINT: If you require a smaller version, the 17-Ounce Bodumn Bistro Mini Cordless Electric Kettle is perfect. This size fits into my Vegan Travel Kitchen for the Road without taking up much space. I can usually put items inside it so that it takes up little space in my bag.
Just got back from a trip to Honolulu for two weeks. Wanted to have espressos like at home, but didn't want to spend the "Starbucks" to get it. So we went to Macy's and bought a DeLonghi Pump Espresso Machine, two Bodum cups and had espressos for ourselves and visitors in our Waikiki Grandview Suite... check it out!
We left the machine and cups behind with friends and still saved money not buying coffee or making a "so so" cup in the room's regular coffee machine.
