For a while now I have been wanting a Buono Kettle – not the one here on ROASTe – that is a fine kettle though. The one I have been waiting for is the model with the electric base so you do not need a stove to heat the water. While waiting on that model, I found something similar that scratches the itch nicely. The Bonavita Electric Kettle has the built in heating and the slender spout needed for stove-free pour over coffee nirvana.

The 1000 watt Bonavita Electric Kettle heats quickly the water quickly to a measured 212 degrees F after the automatic cut off kicked in at the end of the boil.  The volume is one liter so even filled close to full capacity the kettle feels light in the hand. This lighter weight and the well shaped thin goose neck pouring spout (reminds me of the Hario Buono's spout design) provide the high level of stream control even after a couple minutes of pouring. I also like the full wrap handle which prevents accidental knuckle contact with the hot kettle body.

I hope the Bonavita Electric Kettle catches on - so far I like what I see in the short time I have used mine.  I made a cup of pu'erh tea last night and a cup of Deep Cello Black Tie Decaf coffee using my trusty Melitta filter cone tonight. Both were home runs for flavor using this handy Bonavita kettle.

When I get in today I will experiment using my ceramic Hario V60-2 (available here on ROASTe)and this kettle with some Deep Cello Black Tie (regular, not decaf) I took out of the freezer to thaw. I liked the Black Tie as an espresso but it works well for other prep methods too.

Below is a photo of this kettle. The Hario pour over cone is a V60-2 and is included to give a size comparison in the photo.

...because my son-in-law is getting a pouring kettle as part of his Hanukkah package. I'd just about decided on the Hario Buono because it's such a pretty thing and has great reviews, but an electric kettle definitely has appeal.

I was curious about this kettle. Hopefully Roaste will carry it at some point.

That looks like something that I've been waiting for, I really like the convience of an electric kettle, where did you pick this bad boy up at?

And I heard a rumor elsewhere (you probably did, too) that there's a PID-controlled version (adjustable temp.) coming out in 2012.

<br>The Hario kettle is nice, and who knows? If ROASTe carried that model I would be very interested because the Buono Kettle is very nice. I needed a kettle for my office for pour over - I do not have access to a stove so the self contained kettle was a very important feature - for others close to a stove, the extra cord might not carry the same appeal.

<br>I hope they carry this kettle too - or at least one of their partner vendors might pick up the kettle and offer it here.

<br>Wow - I hope your sources are right - PID control on one of these would satisfy even the most discriminating afficianado - I am happy with a kettle that boils and cut off automatically. The kettle heats quickly so the need to have hot water waiting is more than I need but who knows? the feature might be great in application.

Thanks Eric, and couldn't agree more. We will shortly be offering both the Bonavita and Hario...a customer of mine in chicago has been singing the praises of the former since they took possession of one. will keep you posted...justin 2 Deep Cello

It really does look promising and even has a 2-year warranty. A very god kettle even if you're not doing pour-over.

<br>This kettle is pretty handy - if someone is in an office and doesn't have access to boiling water these type of self-contained kettles are the ticket.

<br>this is great news - if Deep Cello can offer the kettle here on ROASTe they should move a lot of them - and some great coffee too.

<br>I agree - the kettle still has the same functionality as a regular kettle for bag tea or a quick bowl of oatmeal in the morning or noodles for lunch.

probably the most practical pouring kettle out there. i'm a sucker for aesthetics, so i roll with a baby takahiro. not better, but cute as a button

<br>This one is dead simple to use and with a cheap analog temp sticking out of the holes in the lid the level of control over heating makes this even more versatile - good kettle here.

I think that might just be an ideal kettle (as someone in the market myself)!
