Here's what Amazon's website says about this kettle: "The Russell Hobbs York Kettle is a highly functional addition to your kitchen that allows you to brew your favorite tea and coffee to perfection. With five variable temperatures and a keep warm function, the Russell Hobbs York Kettle will allow you to enjoy the perfect cuppa any time of the day." The only problem is this kettle doesn't have variable temperature settings. We was conned through a false description. Very unhappy.
