The 5 Best Variable Temperature Kettles August, 2017 (And 10 Other Models)


The water kettle has come a long way from the stovetop model your grand'ma used and the basic electric kettle your parents thought was state-of-the-art. Modern variable temperature elctric kettles are the wave of the future because water temperature is critical in bringing out the best qualities of tea and coffee. Coffee must be brewed at 200F and most tea varieties require brew temperatures lower than the boiling point of 212F. For instance, according to inpursuitoftea.com, white tea best brews at 165F while black tea requires 205F or more.

Aside from preset or programmable temperature settings, variable temperature models commonly have several other advanced features. They often have a keep-warm timer -- to keep the water at the set temperature for a given amount of time -- or programmable auto-start timers. Tea-centric models also have a tea basket and a tea-steeping countdown timer.

So if you are not kidding with the quality of your tea or coffee, make sure your next electric kettle has variable temperature settings.
