Great price on this. Wife uses it every morning (for the last 2 years) to get the right water temp to steep her loose leaf green tea. Buydig had it for $79 shipped on Black Friday (which I bought), but this is the lowest I've seen from a reputable retailer.
I'm all for paying alot of money for things, but I can honestly say I don't understand why these are so expensive? Even if it does have temperature settings, so what? Normally $90!!!
It saves people time and effort. If the price is too high you can always get one in plastic or simply use a pan on the stove with a thermometer.(if you have a gas stove this is actually a reasonable option, electric not so much) You could also buy one without settings and use the estimate method of water temps. Let cool 10-20 seconds after boiling reached to be close to 200. Three minutes for green tea high temps(160-170) ...five minutes for green tea low temps.(140ish) I do find that making hot beverages with the right temps does help improve the flavor.
Now by having the settings for temps below boiling you are saving time and money/energy. Green tea water ready in 90 seconds versus about 7 minutes. That is even before comparing it to the savings of making drinks at home compared to going out and buying it somewhere else.
If the unit prevents you from buying X drinks somewhere else or for every twenty green tea boils you save one hour of wages. The units quickly pay for themselves. If you are a tea drinker, especially green or herbal they newer units with variable temp settings seem like a great bargain.
