Handy for green teas and coffee, which should not be made with boiling water.

Apart from boil, the temperatures selectable are: 50º, 60º, 70º and 85ºC, with the kettle changing to a different colour for each. The colours serve as a visual temperature guide as the kettle heats up for those who cannot see the temperature gauge. It can keep water more or less at any of the temperatures selected for up to two hours. Not sure how useful that function is since it does not take long to boil from cold. Constant digital temperature read out, so you can see if the water needs reheating for that second cup.

No whistle on this one, but it does beep when ready.

Not many of these variable temperature kettles around and they are not cheap. The only other available is £48.

This price available until 24th July.

Are these any good? We all know kettles are the main source of electricity drain on one's house. And I hate absolutely boiling water in tea. So I wondered whether to give it a go? Why doesn't someone invent the Thermo kettle. You boil the water once and then it stays warm all day? Seems so simple?

You need boiling water for the tea to brew properly, unless it is green or herbal/fruit tea. Otherwise this does what it says - heats the water to whatever temperature you set then monitors the temperature. Once it falls to a certain level below that what you set, it reheats it until it reaches the same temperature again and continues doing that for two hours. It's open to debate how energy efficient that is.

If you just want hot water on tap - you need one of those catering tea urns. Costco does them for something over £100 if I remember rightly.

Something like this?

Looks good but I don't drink much tea at home, prefer coffee (and have a Nespresso machine for that!).
