Looking for the perfect kettle can always be a bother, and always wondering what temperature your water is at is also one too. The Cuisinart PerfecTemp Porcelain Enameled Teakettles have perfect temperature control, and the precise temperature gauge is multi-colored and easy to read indicating the correct water temperature to provide the ideal cup of tea or coffee. The porcelain enamel exterior and interior with iron core heats up quickly and retains heat well.
Why do you need a perfect temperature? The perfect brewing temperature yields the best tea flavor and allows the release of antioxidants. Also, a pleasant whistling sound reliably signals boiling water which tells you when to start the perfect temperature countdown.

This electric fondue set is suitable for chocolate, cheese, broth or oil, and includes the base, bowl, temperature probe, 8 fondue forks, and fork rack. It's made with a brushed stainless-steel 3-quart bowl that features a nonstick interior. The removable temperature control is adjustable for wide range of recipes, and the unit is safe for immersion and dishwasher. We're pretty sure we need to go electric for longer fondue parties, so this has just been added to our Fall fondue list.

I love an appliance that multitasks, and this Magimix cuisine system seems to be all the rage in food processors/mixers right now. The Magimix is a food processor, mixer, citrus press, juice extractor, mandoline slicer, grater, mini chopper, and blender all in one. Is that all? It can't walk the dog and put the kids to bed? It comes with a double blade and discs, a dough blade, 3 preparation bowls, spatula, storage case, storage holder, citrus press, cream whipper, and juice extractor.

It's summer, and we need a 450-watt frozen-concoction maker that blends up to 36 ounces of fruit and liquor together - really we do. The dual motors for shaving ice and blending beverages are powerful enough to power a small boat, and the manual shave/blend option for customized drinks makes margaritas a breeze. The blender has all dishwasher-safe parts, and comes with a shot glass, recipes, and instructions.

This popcorn maker with motorized stirring mechanism for better popping, has special vents which let moisture escape to keep popcorn crisp. The removable nonstick cooking plate with cool-touch handles makes it easy to get the popcorn out to the home movie starving masses. Almost the entire popcorn popper is dishwasher-safe including the bowl, bowl cover, stirring stick, and popping plate.

We're always on the look out for the latest in home keg fun, and the Avanti Mini Pub is ideal for use in home, RV, camper, on boat or at a BBQ/tailgate. It's a lightweight silent thermoelectric model with auto-defrost, and features a digital display for ºC/ºF temperature settings. And if beer and ambiance is what you need, the soft interior lighting with on/off switch will set the mood. It uses all standard 5-liter mini beer kegs (not included - bummer).

This contemporary Teasmade by Swan is an alarm clock and tea maker all in one, and at wake up time has a cup of tea ready to go. Sure your kitchen is not supposed to be in your bedroom, but what the hell right? A nice cup of tea after all solves everything…almost every time.

It was 95 degrees here yesterday, so it seems like it might be time for a frozen beverage. This ice shaver makes snow cones, slushies, margaritas, and other frozen treats. You use ice directly from the freezer and use the shaver to shave it into a bowl. The bowl includes measurement markings.

This is one fancy tea brewer. This kettle lowers the tea leaves into the water when it reaches the perfect temperature and then lifts them out after the ideal steeping time. There are five preset tea varieties and three brewing strengths. You can also remove the brewing basket to use the kettle by itself. And you can keep water at 160 degrees F for up to an hour.
