My latest krups electric kettle busted...which is how I found adagio teas to begin with and man I am hooked but that i another story. Anyways I wanted to get a standard stove top kettle to replace my Krups but my mister said to go electric...it is more energy efficiant. Okay, he's right but they are pricey and break often. This is about my third electric in 12 years. He's paying so...his loss when it breaks in 4 years
Well I settled on a Capresso. The company was founded by some Krups expatriots [and needless to say I'm not thrilled with Krups] but the big selling point is that it is a glass caraffe, not metal or [bleck] plastic. Not only can I see the water boiling, or near boiling which I prefer, but I can see when the pot needs cleaning. My Krups waaaaay overboiled, always and had terrible buildup which I never knew about because I always just kept filling it through the spout. When I would get around to thinking maybe I should check it=ew!
Does anyone have any experience with the Capresso? Likes? Dislikes?
