The Bonavita Variable Temperature Electric Kettle is one of the most useful tools that currently resides in the Eight Ounce Coffee kitchen. And this new 1.7l version makes it even more useful! Along with the Bonavita scale, this has made our beverage preparation so much easier and more accurate.
You can set the temperature exactly (and store up to 6 presets) and, as you don't have to transfer the water to a gooseneck to pour, you don't lose heat - meaning a more consistent temperature through the entire brew. It's an essential tool when brewing delicate loose leaf teas that require an exact temperature. You can finally stop burning that expensive Gyokuro with boiling water!
It's also quick. Being a British ex-pat, where 220v is de-rigeur, one of the things I miss is a quick boiling kettle. Thankfully, the Bonavita is really fast to heat, even at 110v, and tells me exactly what temperature it's currently at whilst heating. As if that isn't enough, it sports an array of other features, such as a built-in timer, that make this the stand-out pour over kettle choice for anyone who wants to make the most of their coffee and tea.
