The Capresso H2O Steel PLUS kettle is constructed of stunning stainless steel and features four specific settings to steep different types of teas, at the perfect temperature. For lighter teas, such as white or green varieties, a lower temperature is recommended, while darker teas will extract better flavor using higher temperatures. The automatic keep warm setting keeps the remaining water at the selected temperature until you are ready for your next cup. The H2O Steel PLUS will even self-adjust if additional water is added to the kettle during the keep warm cycle. The pause and pour feature allows the user to interrupt the heating process, without resetting the cycle. In addition to heating water for tea, the H2O Steel PLUS is handy for brewing French press coffee or heating water for reconstituting dried vegetables and fruits, or with instant oatmeal, and soup mixes.
