T-fal Thermovision Electronic Kettle Review

I often drink a cup of tea in the evenings to unwind and relax.  I also enjoy the odd cup of green tea when I need a break from coffee. My mom, on the other hand, drinks tea all day long! The kettle is always in plain sight when she comes for a visit and gets lots of use. I can’t wait for her to come over so I can show her my new kettle which is a big upgrade from the one I used to use! 

T-fal Thermovision Electronic Kettle

I’m now the owner of a T-fal Thermovision Electronic Kettle (1.5L) which is the most advanced kettle I’ve ever owned. For starters, it has 5 programmable temperatures (160⁰F, 175⁰F, 185⁰F, 195⁰F, 212⁰C) you can choose from. I never have given the temperature much thought before, but I’ve learned that there are some teas (like white & green) that require specific temperatures to retain their vitamins and nutrients. I prefer my hot beverages very hot so it’s nice to have that option on there.  There’s an LCD display of the current temperature so you always know how hot it is.

There’s a light inside the kettle that changes colour according to the temperature of the water. It’s neat to have a visual aid to see how hot it is. 

When the water is at the selected temperature, it will beep and the kettle will switch off automatically. I love this feature! I don’t know how many times I’ve started the kettle then got busy doing something else and forgot about it!

It’s stainless steel, but the handle doesn’t heat up so you won’t burn yourself. Still I would be careful since the water is very  hot!

I also like the fact that it has an automatic keep warm function for 30 minutes. If I get busy on the phone or doing laundry, I still have time to make my tea (or oatmeal) without having to start up the kettle again.

To clean, just wipe out with a damp sponge. It’s not to be submerged in water though and make sure its unplugged!! I’m sure you knew that anyways but I’ll mention it just in case. There’s also a removable filter you can clean with water.

The T-fal Thermovision Electronic Kettle is definitely the nicest kettle I’ve ever owned. Visit T-fal for more information about the kettle and where you can buy one as a gift for a friend (or for yourself!).

    I love tea but my mother in law is a all day drinker like yours and would flip for joy over this! Also didnt know about temps either, very interesting!

    My mom has been looking for another electronic tea kettle, her last one bit the dust after several years of dutiful service. For a while she was using her Kurig and leaving out the K-up, to get her hot water. But she really missed her tea kettle. I will definitely have to look at getting her one of these.

    Thanks for the review.

    I love a steaming cup of Indian masala chai which I make in a saucepan on the stovetop. I put the tea bags and/or loose tea and sugar(I sometimes add crushed cardamom pods, whole cloves, and a cinnamon stick) in water and let it boil for a few minutes before adding milk. I then bring it to a boil again, strain, and enjoy. Heating up water in the microwave dipping a tea bag is just not the same.

    I own some T-fal products and trust the brand. This kettle would be perfect for taking along when we travel, which we do, extensively. I miss my chai then. Yes, I could pack a hot plate, saucepan, and other ingredients but that’s such a hassle.

    My mother is a chai addict and also makes chai on the stovetop. An electric kettle is an absolute necessity for travel. I have childhood memories of her brewing tea in hotel rooms.
