Looks nice for being sure your water is the right temperature, although, unless I misunderstand the manual, it doesn't let you set it to maintain a particular temperature, but lets you set only the duration of heating?
Quite a few of us use variations on electric kettles, but I use my 1.5L Pino digital kettle pro models only for heating water, and brew in a variety of gaiwans, kamjove gongfu cups, kyusus, shiboridashi, glass teapots, or clay pots. None were particularly expensive or fancy--I think the kettles cost more than any of my brewing vessels. What I brew depends on where I am (home/work/satellite office), what kind of tea, and whether I'm brewing infusions to drink immediately or for a thermos full.
So, as was asked before, the first thing we need to know to help you out is, what kind of tea do you think you might enjoy most often? And do you want one teapot or tea-brewing vessel for all teas or would you consider several for different types of teas?
