Fact: making amazing coffee and tea has just as much to do with your water temp as it does with the quality of your ingredients. This smart kettle handles the first seamlessly — and we think it looks pretty good doing it too. On your counter, the blacked-out vessel will sit atop an equally handsome base, complete with a knob you use to set your water temperature to the degree. After you choose your kettle temp, you can track your heating progress on the LCD screen — and even have the kettle hold that temperature for up to an hour. Plus, there's a brew stopwatch on board in case you'd like to time your steepage to the second.
