It's so easy to operate as well and that was something that was especially important for us, because this kettle has been selected as a present for someone else. So nothing complex. All they have to do is just select one of the preset temperatures, then press start - that's it. Oh and there's one last button "keep warm". It doesn't get much simpler than that does it?
Most people don't give a kettle a second thought - it's just there to boil water. But think how much more versatile it would be if you could not only boil water but set it to other temperatures too. It might seem overkill but it's surprising how useful it becomes. Once you've had one yourself, your unlikely to go back to a traditional kettle.
