Thanks for looking!

10A is kind of limiting for a kettle. Even my cheapo kettle takes 12.5A. And it's not clear if that amazon controller has PID functionality. I could be wrong but I would expect that a simple set point with a dead band probably won't work especially well with a kettle. When I do it manually I find I have to shut off the heating element before I get to the temperature or else it overshoots.

If you get the all black version, it's $50 right now ($10 coupon)
Seems like a great deal to me.

For example, the Intasting kettle is currently priced at $60-70 and rated 4.7 stars. I've been using one on a daily basis for almost a year, and recommend it without reservation.
I just got one of these and like it a lot. Thank you, John, for posting about your experience.
