This Kettle Heats Water to the Exact Temperature You Want

If you'd rather enjoy a cup of coffee or a mug of tea as soon as you make it—instead of painstakingly sipping at the scalding beverage until you can tolerate the heat—your plight has officially been resolved. Bonavita's variable temperature kettles let you specify exactly how hot you want your water.

Six preset settings should suffice for most users needing hot water for instant coffee or a recipe. But if you're precisely brewing coffee or steeping tea and require the water temperature to be exact, above 140 degrees fahrenheit you can program a specific temperature that the kettle will target with two degrees of accuracy. And it will automatically hold that exact temperature—which is constantly displayed on an LED screen—for up to an hour. In September the kettles will be available in two flavors: a one liter gooseneck model perfect for fancy tea parties (or preparing pourover coffee), and a more traditional 1.7 liter design which wil both sell for $100, much to the delight of budget-conscious coffee connoisseurs.

This is probably the greatest invention I've ever seen in my life and I genuinely mean that. You have no idea how many problems this kind of thing is going to solve for me, seriously. I'm getting one of these for sure.
