Like all the appliances in our Pro Line Series, our new kettle was built to deliver exceptional performance, striking design and intuitive functionality,” says Beth Robinson, senior manager of brand experience for KitchenAid. “Whether it's being used to heat water for green tea or French press coffee, the kettle offers fast, precise heating and eliminates any guesswork for desired water temperatures.

The 1440 Watt electric kettle features a water level gauge with a display window for precise measurement, holding up to 51 ounces of water. An external temperature dial on the kettle base glides left or right to set the desired water temperature. Temperatures can be set anywhere from 50 - 100 degrees C, with near boiling temperatures used for brewing specific types of tea marked in finer increments. A glowing white light indicates exact temperature selection.

The start button illuminates when heating has begun, with progressing white lights that blink to indicate the rising temperature and time remaining during the heating process. A soft chime sounds when water is heated to the desired temperature. A circular temperature gauge rises as water is heated, and provides continuous temperature measurement, even when the kettle is removed from the base.

The kettle body is built with a dual wall design that keeps the water inside hotter for a longer period of time, yet remains cool to the touch on the outside,” notes Robinson.

Additional features of the kettle include a 360 degrees rotating base for easy lifting of the kettle body from any direction. The lid release button provides easy water filling, and a soft touch handle offers comfort and control when handling the kettle. The kettle's cord wrap feature keeps the cord neat and organized for storage.

The kettle is designed with an all-steel, dome shaped body and is available in Candy Apple Red, Frosted Pearl White, Onyx Black, Silver Medallion and Sugar Pearl at a suggested retail price of $199.99.
