Boiled water-in no time. Fill this modern kettle half way to 17 ounces (that's 2 to 3 cups of tea), and in 60 seconds flat you've got boiling water. A full kettle of 54 ounces takes 6 minutes or less. A sensor automatically switches the kettle off when the water boils, or the kettle is started without any water. The revolutionary lid design features a dampening system to control steam release.
