super tea maker

This isn't a plug for this dreamy device, but rather a post of yet another wishlist item. Meet the Cuisinart PerfecTemp Programmable Tea Steeper and Kettle, currently sold out on GILT.  Although... I didn't know brewing tea was so complicated that it warrants such a sophisticated appliance. It almost takes the romance and calm out of the experience of brewing a pot or cup of tea, which, if you're like me, is just as enjoyable as sipping the tea.

  • Removable stainless steel tea infuser raises and lowers to steep loose or bagged tea
  • 1500 watts for fast heat-up
  • Programmable controls with blue LED indicators
  • 6 preset tea temperatures
  • Adjustable countdown steeping timer
  • 30 minute keep warm option
  • 2 minute life-off memory feature
  • Cordless glass kettle holds 1 1/10 quarts for tea steeping and 1 1/5 quarts as a water kettle
  • Perfect for homemade iced tea
  • Removable spout filter
  • Overheat and boil dry protection
  • Measures 7½ inches in diameter by 12 inches in height
  • Dishwasher safe
