No more waiting for the water to boil on the stovetop. The Saeco 50-Ounce electric water kettle will quickly heat the water to your desired temperature with three preset warming temperatures from 100F to 200F.

We have had electric water kettles for over 15 years. When the top on our latest one got worn, we bought the Saeco 1167. It's the best electric water kettle we've ever had. Most important: it shows the temperature of the water as it heats up so you can choose what degree of heat you want, which is essential if you drink a lot of tea and wonderful when you need warm water for baking. It even holds that temp if you like. It can be set to heat low, med or high; or, it can go straight to boil. The kettle pours well, too, unlike other kettles.

You can actually see the level of water from the outside, which eliminates peering into the kettle. And, although it seems like a fancy extra, the way the kettle's clear area changes color as the water heats is handy. You can tell at a quick glance, from across the room or when you're doing something else, how the water's coming along. This is very handy when you have company, or are busy with other chores.

We like this kettle so much, we have bought this particular unit for gifts.

This is the best kitchen gadget ever (well, maybe my new fridge is as cool as that, but it costs 20 times more, so it does not count).

My god, this thing is awesome!
It actually changes the color as it heats! Yes, I know that product description says that, but reading about it is one thing; actually seeing is another. This is just sick.

It has a built-in digital thermometer!
Now when I am desperately waiting for the kettle to heat up, not only I can see the whole thing lit up and change the color like a Christmas tree, I can also watch the thermometer counting the degrees.

The best kettle a geek can have.

Oh BTW, the tea tastes fine, it heats up pretty fast, etc, etc.

PS: Too bad it does not have a wi-fi module with SNMP on it; but next model surely will.

This kettle has been great. I got it for a bit less than advertised here, but what a deal. I had no problems with a "plastic" taste. I followed the instructions of boiling up two kettles of water and dumping them out before personal use. I used it for making tea at a high tea and several people asked where I got it. I use this kettle almost every day. I have only had it a few weeks and, so far, I am very pleased.

After boiling water several times the water still tastes like plastic. Too bad as the functions of this keettle are great. Also cannot get company to respond to my question on whether the plastic is Biphenol-A free. A poison that gets leeched out of plastic when you heat it.

This tea kettle is really cool! On paper it seems like it is packed with gimmicks: colour technology? temperature display? temp hold?? However, in actual use these all become very handly indeed. The neon-like color gradually changes from blue (cold) to purple (warmer) to pink (warm) to red (boiling) as the water heats up. If you are running around the house doing things, all it takes is a glance to see how close it is to "done" or if it is finished, as the light goes off completely when the water is hot.

There is a temperature display on the top of the handle, so if you are brewing a very fine tea that requires hot (but not boiling) water, you can make an accruate brew. After boiling, you can see the tem go down if it is still sitting on the base for power, so you won't burn yourself if you dump the used water out.

Finally, it also has a "keep warm" feature at 2 temperatures that I wonder why no other tea kettle has.

After washing there is no plastic taste ever at all, none. The ONLY thing I wish it had was a larger capacity (1.8 or 2 liters), but there is a fair amount of room above "Max" so I cheat a little.

In sum, a fantastic kettle and well worth the money!

As a geeky type, I really wanted to keep this kettle (the lights, temperature, and controls are great.)

UNFORTUNATELY, no matter how many times (15+) I ran it with fresh water (the manual recommends twice to remove "manufacturing" residue), the boiled water has a strong "plastic" odor and taste. I'm not very sensitive to off flavors/smells but this was bad.

I had read the reviews that mentioned odor issues, but, given the other positive reviews, figured that some people are more sensitive and discounted them. I was wrong.

I'm returning it for a refund.

This product seemed perfect. The exact temperature readings were very helpful for tea. It got water boiling very fast if that's all I needed. I also liked the design aesthetically, and it was easy to handle and operate. But it stopped working after just a few usages. I sent it back to Amazon and Amazon refunded my money.

I am a big believer in "you get what you pay for." This was cheaper than the other variable temperature electric kettles I considered, but it actually was the only one with ALL the features I wanted. So despite it being cheaper, I figured the unique features made it worth a chance. It is a great product in theory, but due to the unreliable quality control, I don't think I will order from this company again.

The kettle boils water quickly and I love the fact that it'll keep water hot for 2hrs and then shut itself off. The changing colors are fun. It's looks really nice in the dark kitchen first thing in the morning.
BUT...I guess they call it a "water kettle" and not a "tea" kettle for a reason. The temp choices are odd. You can boil or you can choose from 3 temp settings. 100degrees, 150degrees or 200degrees. 100? why? tap water is hotter than that. 150 is a decent temp for instant coffee, but not for brewing anything. 200 degrees is too hot for most teas. Why not a choice of temperatures that are recommended for brewing tea or even coffee??
I spent so much time researching all the different kettles. Wondering why there are so few with temperature controls. It's probably because everyone else knows what I just learned. Pouring boiling water into a cold ceramic cup brings the temperature to 185.
Oh well...So, it boils water super fast and it looks nice. So it gets 4 stars, but it can't have 5 stars with the retarded temperature choices.
