It looks like KitchenAid has finally learned a trick from sportscar manufacturers like Ferrari, and even Iron Man. The company's newest addition to its Pro Line of appliances is this lustworthy electric kettle that comes with an optional candy apple red colour scheme that makes it look like it could boil water in three seconds.
It can't, of course, but the 1.5-litre kettle does have an awesomely old-school analogue water level gauge on the side of its stainless steel dome for perfect measurements. An adjustable thermostat on the base lets you dial in a specific water temperature from 50C to 100C, which makes it perfect for tea snobs. A series of LEDs start to glow as the water gets hotter and hotter, followed by a chime when it reaches your preset temperature.
The kettle is also available in white, black, silver and sugar pearl colour schemes for $200, but who would opt for anything other than that Tony Starkian candy apple red? [KitchenAid via Appliancist]
