I've never checked how exact it is, and I know that when the light is flashing it is actually warmer than the temperature on the screen, but in that case I usually just let the water cool for a minute or two before I brew.
So I use the 65C setting for all greens and whites (including matcha), the 85C for all oolong teas, and the 98C for blacks and tisanes, but beyond that I'm not nit-picky about the exact temperatures.
... although I just received the VarieTEA from Adagio which has all the temp settings and more, I have only USED the boil setting, heh. But it is a really nice kettle.
I guess I am set in my BrewWays, boil and then cool with pot, yuzamashi, cups. And the water stays hot enough for at least 4 steeps of green. But I am determined to try the other settings!!! Even if I have to force myself.
Began the TD with Hana No Kaori with the Mrs. Began with boiling water ...
