cuisinart-perfetemp-tea-kettle

Most of Gear Patrol’s editors aren’t serious enough tea fiends to ever justify dropping this kind of cash on a kettle. That said, we do know a variety of folks who take their leafy drink quite seriously, so we decided to share. Built with an integrated precision temperature gauge, this 3-quart tea pot is designed to let brewers obtain the optimal water temperature for all manner of teas types (which apparently varies significantly across the tea spectrum).

Made of porcelain enamel with an iron core, it’s also quite attractive from a design perspective, combining both classic and modern elements, while still heating up quickly. Cuisinart of course promotes the pot as having an energy saving design since it enables drinkers to reduce unnecessary boiling or re-boiling by clearly displaying the temperature. The point is it provides control, and as far as we’re concerned precision never hurts.

Cost: $80
