Product Description

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. The easy to read display panel built directly into the handle makes setting the temperature easy. The kettle also comes with two heating options. Bring water to a rolling boil using conventional heating or use the keep warm mode to heat up and hold water at a specific temperature for up to 2 hours. The 360-degree rotational power base with internal cord storage is perfect for the right or left handed user. What makes this kettle even more appealing is the large 50-Ounce carafe that is made of sturdy plastic and stainless steel. The carafe has multi-colored backlight to indicate the temperature range from low, medium and high. For added safety there is a triple protection switch that will shut off the unit.

Customer Reviews

After 3 weeks of use it simply stopped working.

Variable temperature holding is great, just great for making teas at different temps.
Ricardo O. Howell
Saeco should be ashamed of itself for making such a low quality product.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

We had two of the Capresso 259.03 H2O Plus Glass Water Kettle, Polished Chrome, both of which died about a year after we purchased them. We decided to find an alternative and tried the Saeco, which we've had for just over a month. It's much sturdier, and the lid doesn't seem like it will break off the way it did on one of the Capressos.

In addition, the taller Saeco protects your hands when pouring so that the steam can't burn your skin. Boiling time is good, cit's quieter, and the filter is a nice addition. It can hold a lot of water, and we like that it shows the actual temperature on the handle. We wanted to make sure the kettle we purchased had an automatic shutoff feature, which the Saeco does. It also has a "keep warm" option, which we haven't used yet. The changing lights aren't really necessary but add some fun. We haven't had any issues with the water tasting like plastic, as some others have reported, nor have we experienced any bad smells.

I'll amend this review if anything goes wrong with the kettle, but so far we're very happy with the Saeco. It's a great alternative for those fed up with the cheap quality of the Capressos, but it's also a solid product on its own. We expect to use it for a long time to come.
