Variable Temperature Kettle
This is the next generation of kettles. I've been using a countertop kettle for years to boil water for tea, my percolator, or to add hot water to instant soups or recipes. BUT, this new one allows you to specify the temperature! So great for cooking, but IDEAL for different types of tea (for which it has separate settings!) -- now you can brew the perfect cup of green, oolong, white, rooibus... ANYTHING! Ingenious.
