Capresso H2O Steel PLUS Water Kettle

Capresso H2O Steel PLUS Water Kettle
Faster, safer and more precise than any stove top kettle, the H2O Steel PLUS features a striking stainless steel pitcher and variable temperature settings for versatility when preparing different types of teas. The Capresso H2O Steel PLUS kettle is constructed of stunning stainless steel and features four specific settings to steep different types of teas, at the perfect temperature. For lighter teas, such as white or green varieties, a lower temperature is recommended, while darker teas will extract better flavor using higher temperatures. The automatic keep warm setting keeps the remaining water at the selected temperature until you are ready for your next cup. The H2O Steel PLUS will even self-adjust if additional water is added to the kettle during the keep warm cycle. The pause and pour feature allows the user to interrupt the heating process, without resetting the cycle. In addition to heating water for tea, the H2O Steel PLUS is handy for brewing French press coffee or heating water for reconstituting dried vegetables and fruits, or with instant oatmeal, and soup mixes. Purchase here. This kettle is amazing. It works great and is perfect for any tea lover. 


Capresso On-the-Go
The On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker keeps up with your busy lifestyle by quickly brewing coffee directly into the stainless steel insulated thermal travel mug so you never have to leave your brew behind. Large permanent filter can hold up to 6 tablespoons of medium ground coffee for maximum strength, adjust strength by adding less ground coffee. The On-the-Go also works with pre-packaged soft coffee pods for an even quicker brew and faster clean up. As an added convenience and safety feature, the unit automatically shuts off after the brew cycle is complete. It also includes an On/Off button to save energy when not in use. Use the mug to measure out the water before filling the water tank to ensure no coffee will overflow. Purchase here. This coffee maker is sure to help you stay up while studying – or function after a long night of doing so! This is a dorm room must for any kid heading off to college this year!
