Do you hate waiting for the kettle to boil on the stove top? Electric kettles are quicker, but they usually have an inconveniently short cord. Well, all of those problems are a thing of the past with Bodum's IBIS 57oz. Black Electric Water Kettle. Just fill and place on the electric base, and you'll have boiling water in less than five minutes. Once it reaches a boil, or if the kettle is empty, it shuts off automatically. Just let it sit for a few minutes, and the water will be at the ideal temperature for tea or coffee.
