Have you ever wanted to have the perfect temperature hot water, without boiling it?
Sure, for most applications in the kitchen, we just want hot water and we want it as fast as possible – right? For a quick cup of tea or coffee, there is nothing better than a quick boil kettle, and a steaming cup of your favorite brew.
Select the exact temperature
But what if you need something a little more accurate, like a nice green tea, or a special Oolong tea, or some other different requirement? Have you ever tasted green tea that has been scorched by boiling water? It can be terrible, but that is not the fault of the tea, but rather the problem is with the steeping in water that is the wrong temperature. The only real alternative is to boil the water and then add a little cold water until you reach the desired temperature.
The Cuisinart CPK-17 Stainless Steel Kettle is the way to go
The best way to get exactly the right temperature water for your delicate cup of tea, is to use the Cuisinart CPK-17 Perfect temperature stainless steel electric kettle.

The Perfect Temperature for Every Cup of Tea
The Cuisinart CPK-17 has a choice of six temperature selections, which have been intelligently designed around the most popular choices of tea. Simply choose whichever temperature you need, but if you are unsure, here is a rough guide to the various varieties of tea.
For Warm Water – choose 160 degrees
For all those times when you just need warm water, but not too hot, then this selection is perfect, such as a hot chocolate at bed time.
For Green Tea – choose 175 degrees
Green Tea can be spoiled by steeping in boiling water, and will almost always be far too bitter to be enjoyed properly. Instead, most green teas are best when steeped around 175 degrees Fahrenheit, which converts to 80 degrees Celsius. With the Cuisinart Perfect temperature kettle, you can be assured of a pleasant and enjoyable cup of green tea, which is reliably brewed the right way every time!
For White Tea – choose 185 degrees
If you are a bit of a tea connoisseur, then you will appreciate that white tea should be steeped just right, or the delicacy will be ruined. For white tea, this means the water should be heated to just on 185 Fahrenheit, or 85 Celsius. White tea needs the perfect water temperature to release that delicate flavor from the tips of the finest tea leaves. The Cuisinart CPK-17 stainless steel kettle makes it a simple task to make the perfect cup of white tea.
For Oolong Tea – choose 190 degrees
Oolong tea is a very subtle tea variety that is best enjoyed at around 190 Fahrenheit or 90 degrees Celsius. Oolong tea has been fermented and cured a little longer which means the leaves require a slightly hotter temperature during the steeping process, but again, boiling water is too hot and will spoil the brew.
For Coffee Lovers – choose 200 degrees
The Cuisinart CPK-17 stainless steel kettle even caters for coffee making. Some coffee brewers find this setting particularly useful if you find the coffee blend becomes overly bitter or too strong. Selecting a slightly lower temperature can affect the coffee brew, and gives you the flexibility to judge the flavors of the coffee, to make the perfect brew.
For Herbal Teas, Tisanes, and Peppermint teas – choose 200 degrees
For slightly hotter brews, select the 200 degree setting. This is designed to produce the perfect brew for herbal teas, flavored teas, tisanes, and even peppermint teas.
For Black Tea – select Boiling Water
For those who love their traditional black tea, the Cuisinart CPK-17 perfect temperature kettle is still the perfect kettle to deliver steaming hot water in a hurry. Some kettles can under deliver on the boiling water thing, but with the The Cuisinart CPK-17 stainless steel kettle, you always know you will have boiling water ready whenever you need it.
