I bought this with Kohl's cash and so glad I did as my microwave just died (what I used to use for hot water).
This pot has a temperature gauge on it that heats water up to boiling, but has an indicator on it for what water temperature is best for what tea (i.e. black tea should use hotter water than green, etc). I had no idea what I was missing by not making my tea correctly! It's SO much better now! It also helps that I'm steeping longer (with the help of the built in alarm). The only drawback is that there is no "keep warm" setting. You have to plug it in to heat it and unplug when it reaches the desired temperature setting.

The engineers missed out on a key aspect of the design: "Auto Off". Really?? In this day and age, i have to UNPLUG the pot to turn it off?? It has a timer, but it has nothing to do with the heating element. You still have to watch the pot boil, so it doesnt go over the temp you want for the kind of tea you are brewing, and then UNPLUG it. Are you kidding me? Then, you can set the timer. I could have done this with my old tea pot and an egg timer. Dumb.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by HotTeaLover I love this pot! Fresh, Loose Tea Lovers, Rejoice!
I've been researching tea pots and steepers for about a month now. I bought this today with Kohls Cash and only paid $3.91 out of pocket! The tea I made this evening was the BEST I've had in a long time. The thermometer gets you to the right temp for the type of leaves you're steeping and the handy timer on top is so convenient and nice and loud. I plan to take this to work and use it there instead of spending my hard-earned dollars on a good $4 cup of tea from the coffee shop.

This pot gives me 195 degree water in under 4 minutes. You can use it for heating up water for an infuser, or use the infuser that comes with I to brew tea. The timer on the lid does not beep on mine, although it is supposed to. The thermometer color codes temp with the corresponding type of tea your using (white, oolong, green etc). I make 4-6 cups of tea each day, and I love this thing.
