When my old stovetop kettle started to decay, I decided to purchase an electric kettle as many of my friends had them, and they seem to heat water faster. After researching electric kettles, and based upon an enthusiastic recommendation from Cooks' Illustrated, I purchased the Capresso. It has not disappointed. I make a pot of tea every morning with breakfast, and it boils the water very quickly. By the time I get the teapot, teabags, cups, sugar and milk together, the water is ready to go. And it stays hot for quite a while, great if you want to top off the teapot. Also, many recipes I make call for adding hot water. With the Capresso, it's at the ready when I want it. Stylish and practical, this is a great product.
