Review of Ninja Kitchen Perfect Temperature Kettle KT200UK in Black

If you’re a tea or coffee lover, you might appreciate the importance of brewing your drink at the right temperature. Different types of tea and coffee have different optimal temperatures that bring out the best flavour and aroma. That’s why we was intrigued by the Ninja Kitchen Black Perfect Temperature Kettle KT200UK, which claims to give you complete temperature control for the perfect brew every time.

Design and Features

The Ninja Kitchen Black Perfect Temperature Kettle KT200UK is a sleek and modern kettle with a matte black finish and a stainless steel interior. It has a 1.7 litre capacity, which is enough for about 6-7 cups of tea or coffee. It has a digital display that shows the real-time temperature of the water, and a push button operated lid that opens easily.

The kettle has 6 pre-set temperatures ranging from 60°C to 100°C, which are suitable for different types of tea and coffee. For example, 60°C is ideal for green tea, 95°C is ideal for French press coffee, and 100°C is ideal for black tea. You can also adjust the temperature manually in 5°C increments, from 40°C to 100°C, using the +/- buttons.

The kettle also has a Hold Temp feature, which keeps the water at your selected temperature for up to 30 minutes. This is handy if you want to make another cup later or if you’re busy doing something else.

The kettle has a rapid boil function, which boils 1 cup of water in under 50 seconds. It also has a boil dry protection feature, which automatically switches off the kettle when it’s empty. It has a removable and washable limescale filter, which helps to keep the water clean and clear.

The kettle comes with a 360 degree base and a just under 1m cable, which can be stored underneath the base when not in use. It also comes with a drinks guide, which gives you some tips and recipes for making different types of tea and coffee.

Performance and Ease of Use

We found the Ninja Kitchen Black Perfect Temperature Kettle KT200UK very easy to use and reliable. The kettle boiled water quickly and the digital display was clear and accurate. The pre-set temperatures were convenient and matched the recommendations for different types of tea and coffee. We could also adjust the temperature manually if we wanted to.

There was a difference in the taste and aroma of our drinks when we brewed them at the right temperature. For example, green tea tasted more smooth and delicate at 60°C than at 100°C, and French press coffee tasted more rich and full-bodied at 95°C than at 100°C. We also liked the Hold Temp feature, which kept the water warm for longer without over-boiling it.

The kettle was easy to fill and pour, and the lid opened smoothly with a push of a button. The handle was comfortable to hold and had a good grip. The kettle was also easy to clean, as we could remove the limescale filter and rinse it under running water.
