The Cadillac of Kettles - Capresso's teaC100

I received my Capresso teac100 Kettle about a month ago.**

I wanted to give it a thorough "test drive" because I was afraid that I would be so "smitten" with the looks,  I couldn't give an objective review.

However, I can honestly say that this kettle not only looks good, so far, it's sturdy and works very well.  It's much sturdier than I expected.  At first, I was afraid to use it. 

Also,  I don't have much counterspace, but this kettle is compact and easy to handle.  (Get it, handle?)

Seriously, as you know, I'm a coffee girl.  But, with fall upon us and the need to seriously wind down in the evenings, a cup of tea is becoming more a part of my nightly ritual.  And it's pretty good for you too.

I was super excited to receive a sample pack of DAVIDs Tea at exactly the same time I received my new teac100.  A match made in heaven.

And if you're "tea-challenged" like me and not really certain how hot your water should be, this kettle is ideal.   

Sells for about 99.00.
