Benefits of Using an Electric Kettle

Pour Over Electric Kettle Comes With Many Benefits

The benefits of using an electric water kettle are great for tea lovers. You may want to hold onto your nostalgic feelings toward traditional teapots, but the technology here has done wonders for the taste of great tea and you’ll quickly come to be using your old teapots as decoration and letting your electric kettle take up a prime space on your countertop. Or you could have the best of both worlds and go for a teapot style electric kettle with the Capresso Pour-Over Kettle.

The Spout

The gooseneck spout creates an elegant look while having higher functions than most kettles. I find pouring the water into a teacup is a lot more direct causing less spillage.

Energy Efficient

These kettles come with a handful of features that make great tasting tea. First of all, it’s a more energy efficient way to heat water. All of the heat is being focused on what’s inside of the pot, instead of being wasted in various directions. Stovetop boiling takes about ten minutes, while the Capresso pour-over electric kettle takes about three minutes. This is a huge savings of time and energy.

No Boiling Over

If you’re thinking, well, I could microwave it in less time than that, think again. Microwaved water tastes awful, is hard to control the temperature, and it ruins every flavor of tea. You’ll notice the difference right away when you use the Capresso Pour-Over Kettle if this is how you’ve been heating your water for a while. The automatic shut off feature keeps your water from over boiling. If you’ve ever been distracted by something else and let your pot boil away for too long, you can really appreciate this feature.

Keeping It Hot

The Capresso Pour-Over Kettle has a keep warm function, so your water will still be the same temperature when you get back to it. This is also great if you’re having people over and your guests are arriving late. Water will stay warm for 30 minutes after you have started the kettle.

Adjustable Temperature Settings 

The Capresso Pour-Over Kettle has a button on it with different temperature settings depending on which type of tea you are planning to make. Temperatures range from 140-212 degrees Fahrenheit.

Green and white tea drinks arguably get the biggest benefit from using an electric water kettle. This is because these teas need cooler water than most other drinks, and when made with water that’s too hot they taste harsh and bitter.

The Grip

Gripping the Capresso Pour-Over Kettle is a breeze. With the open handle, you can grip in whatever way is most comfortable without any problems.

I don’t even know what happened to that pot!! My granny would flip if she knew of all the functions this pot can do!! I am too! I like hot and cold tea, but I like hot tea – hot! So I LOVE the keeping the water warm and that I will have a cup of tea in around three minutes! I know a couple friends that would like this and Christmas is coming! Pin worthy.
