To make things even easier you can see how much water is in the tank thanks to its blue backlit water window complete with measurement marks. The kettle's 360-degree swivel base allows for pouring without the power cord getting in the way. Once you remove the kettle from its base, its memory function keeps the gadget from shutting off or losing its place in the heating process. Should any liquid boil over, the PerfectTemp automatically shuts itself off for safety. I'd like to see your grandma's kettle do that!
