Tea kettle has nothing to hide

A watched pot may never boil, but what about a tea kettle?

A watched pot may never boil, but nobody said anything about a tea kettle. The Cuisinart DK-17 Cordless Stainless Steel Electric Kettle ($79.95) incorporates a large viewing window, dispersing at least some of the mystery surrounding the art of tea brewing. Like a window to see into its water-heating soul, the design of the modern kettle gives tea drinkers a glimpse into the inner workings of one of tea-brewing's most unassuming aspects -- even if it is just watching water boil.

But as it turns out the device does have something to hide -- in a good way. A concealed 1,500 watt heating element and easy one-touch operation minimize user involvement allowing more time for staring blissfully at the boiling water. The tea kettle can rotate a full 360 degrees in addition to its cordless capabilities, making it no mystery that the tea accessory is not only desirable to watch, but also to use.
