burnt?
need hot water for tea as infusion not so for coffee.

Tea should be 100 degrees, coffee 98.

certain teas and infusions are detrimentally affected by boiling water

regular tea is better with boiling than below boiling ie yerba mate

coffee tends to taste burnt or too bitter if boiling water is used to make it but a lot of people don't know the difference especially instant coffee aficionados who merely consume for caffeine hit and nothing else

Heston Blumenthal has a teamaker on Amazon that costs £199. There is a video explaining temperature best suited, might be worth a look if you are planning on buying this kettle as a idea of what temp to use

Mind boggling how we've managed for hundreds of years without this. Title should be changed to "Ego Booster for coffee snobs".

why's that? like burnt nescafe or have you worked out how to let the kettle cool for a minute or two prior to boiling?

I wouldn't buy anything that idiot has his name on.

It's ok but the 80c setting may be too low for coffee and at the moment gives the drinks a slightly plasticky taste to them. It's a cheap kettle.

Fruit teas fare better at 60C-70C.

Both "Tea" and "Coffee" cover incredibly broad ranges of products, you statement is incorrect for the vast majority of both tea and coffee.

I see. Tried cleaning it out by boiling then leaving overnight with vinegar in? might be worth a shot to get rid of the plasticky taste.

I should point out when you boil it before putting in vinegar you should empty it partially so it's 1/2-3/4 full

well its just as well that I wasn't recommending it then, just saying that the video might be worth watching.

yeah your post was quite clear on that but some people on here can be a bit lacking in comprehension.

Did you buy it recently? I didn't get one in the end but I'd still like one.

They seem to be selling these once a year. Got one last year and it is great! Does everything fine, pours neatly and hoods temperature at a button press. I use the 80C for herbal teas & the 40C for water for breadmaking. The gadgety bits aren't vital but they're useful. Recommended. Esp. At the price- my son got a similar top brand in the US for $200 and it wasn't a lot better.

In that case I'll keep my eyes peeled
