A practical household item in a beautiful design. The Capresso H2O Plus glass water kettle with an illuminated blue operating light boils water fast, quietly and safely...then shuts off automatically. A gleaming, easy-to-clean stainless steel dome covers the concealed heating element. The elegant base plugs into a standard outlet. Just fill the kettle with water, place it on the base, and let it boil. It automatically shuts off when the water is ready. The Capresso Electric Hot Water Kettle has German-made, heat-resistant glass that has ounce and cup markings for easy filling.
