How Does it Compare?

This 40 oz capacity Hario hot water kettle is a little smaller than other kettles and that helps you direct your pour, more so than with a larger, heavier model.

A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

Wayne asked: Hi-- Can you boil water in the Hario V60 Buono Kettle on an electric (coil) burner? We are wanting something to boil water and then pour over a Chemex to make coffee. Thanks in advance! Jul 31, 2012

Karen M: Hello-

We use ours with a gas stove, but since it is just a kettle, like any other pot used to cook, I'm sure it will work just fine on an electric stove. The difference between the Hario and others is the design of the spout and not how it is heated. My husband uses his daily and loves it.

Harriet G: I don't see why not. After all it's a metal water kettle. It works fine with a Ceran stovetop on a small burner. Bottom of pot is a little over 5-5/8" in diameter. It is such a pleasure to use because one has perfect control over the pour. Aug 5, 2012

elliot t: Well, I can't personally speak to your question since I boil my water for my pour over system on a gas cook top, but I don't see why not.

Hope this helps.

Ann d M: Kaylie,
Is there anyway to remove the discoloration on the pot? I notice that even the sides get a little discolored and it is probably the type of stainless. Wonder if stainless cleaner would work on this pot?
thanks Jul 31, 2013
Teri KStaff: I have not tried stainless steel cleaner, and so I am not sure how it will work on this kettle. As long as you are careful, this is a stainless steel pot, and so it should work. If you try it, let us know how it works! Aug 1, 2013

Ann d M: I really like this Hario Kettle. Takes no time to boil water and makes great pour over coffee.Only issue is it gets hot so be careful with the handle. It should be okay to use on the electric stove as it is stainless steel. Jul 31, 2013

Troy K: I would not boil water in the Buono. I use an electric water kettle to boil the water and then I transfer the water from the kettle to the Buono. The Buono is not built for heavy duty use as a stove-top kettle. Especially not for use on an electric stove...... Aug 4, 2012

A shopper asked: I have some white scaling on the inside of my Buono (and I use a Pur water filter...) . Anyone have any ideas for cleaning it out safely? Dec 1, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Dana F: We've been living with the same white scaling on our kettle for about a year now and I haven't bothered to do anything about it because it hasn't seemed to affect the quality of our coffee (we also use filtered water). However, I came across a natural, homemade cleaning solution for hard water and tried it on our kettle and it seems to be taking the scaling off with minimal effort:
Fill a small spray bottle with a solution containing about 50% vinegar, 25 % lemon juice, and 25 % dish soap (I just eyeballed the amounts).
The spray bottle helps get the sides of the kettle coated pretty well, but I ended up just dumping some of the solution in since the bottom of the kettle was scaling a little worse. Wait as long as you need to and scrub with a soft sponge.
Hope this helps!

Jeff R: Do you boil water in this? That would explain white scale. Even if you don't I can't imagine that it is anything other than limescale. If that is what is, vinegar (which is an acid) will remove it. You could pour vinegar in it and let it soak or wrap viengar-soaked paper towels around the inside. Dec 2, 2013
Reply to Jeff Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
BRIAN R: Have you already tried boiling equal amounts of water and vinegar to remove those deposits? You may need to do this a couple times, dumping out the water/vinegar mix before repeating. Dec 2, 2013
Reply to BRIAN Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Millicent P: I always use white distilled vinegar-you can just put the vinegar in the pot, bring to a boil, then turn off and let it sit. I never use chemicals to clean my kettle. Dec 2, 2013

Alice R: It's stainless steel so I would use Bar Keepers Friend which is not abrasive, usually if it's mineral build up white vinegar mixed with water works. Dec 2, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
J Mark C: I use water that passes through the filter on my refrigerator. I do not have any mineral build-up in my Hario because I do not heat the water directly in it. I use it only for controlled pouring when doing a pour over style brew method. Jun 26, 2012

I love this kettle because of the control I have and I do not scorch my hand when pouring. I wish there was a larger version of this.

I use this kettle at work (coffee shop in Seattle area). We have both this and the Bonavita variable temp kettle. Despite not having a variable temp base, this is a superior product (as we have come to expect from Hario). The control it gives you over your pour is second to none. Highly recommend!

Most controllable pour

This is the best kettle I have found for pour over methods. It allows for the most control out of any hand pour I've seen/tried. You can place the water right where you need it and in the exact quantity desired. I know you might be tempted to go with the Bonavita at half the price, but the quality of this product will impress you. I once accidentally left it on the stove, boiling, for over an hour -- finally remembered to check on it, thinking it would be damaged by the heat, no marks or anything and I still made a great cup of coffee. You WON'T be disappointed.

No fault of SCG, they sell the Buono cheaper than anyone on the net. This tool is a must have for controlling your pour - engineering magic. However, somewhere someone is laughing all the way to the bank.

I purchased this item mainly to use with a newly-acquired manual pour-over cone (porcelain). The pin-point accuracy of the spout is a must for this and works perfectly well. The steel construction of this kettle is quite thin, but certainly substantial and adequate for heating the water. I feel that it was a good purchase, and SCG has the lowest price. By the way, a local gourmet foods store where I live had this kettle on "sale" for $75!! Yeah, right!

Perfect Pouring

Review by

Value
Quality

I wanted better control for the pour over with my Chemex, this kettle definitely provides that. It doesn't whistle when it reaches a boil, but that's fine by me. It is relatively small, you can boil a liter of water but it will start to spit out of the spout a little. The base is fairly small as well, so larger burners on high heat will create flames that reach up the sides of the kettle (which will discolor the kettle). Adjusting the burners so that flames don't lick up the sides results in a slower boil, but the extra pour control is worth it.

Been wanting this kettle for more control in pour over brewing. It works perfectly. Seattle Gear's site is the best deal on the internet for the kettle. I've read not to heat water in it on the stove top, but I have been (keeping the flame from going up the sides of the kettle) and have had no problems or discoloration. Looks great in the kitchen as well. Very happy with the purchase.

Pros:
Nice Looking

none

This kettle is the perfect tool for pourover coffee. It's also great for tea. If your timing is right, SCG has the best price for this little gem. Btw, please watch the great vids that Gail & Kat have on YouTube (Seattle Coffee Gear Channel). I learn alot just by watching them demo different items and methods of making a delicious cup of java! Lastly, you can't go wrong with the Hario Buono kettle.

Kettle functions as described. Good control of pour, rapid heating of water, stable design. Lid stays put when pouring yet still easy to remove.
Size is fine for 1-3 cups (8oz servings). For the price I hope this is a real high quality stainless steel that will last.

Great Kettle for Coffee

This kettle is great. I was on the fence, literally for years, on whether or not it was worth the price, [...] I could not say no. While this may be a specialty item, it does its job wonderfully, and that is to help in making your pours very precise. If you use a Hario V60 or a Chemex, or any other dripper with just a big hole, you know how important precision is while pouring. The quality of the kettle is top-notch and the ease of use is superb. It should be noted that the stainless steel is thin, but that is good for something that is made for heating water, as a thicker sheet would increase boil times. Another fact about the kettle is that you can use it on a gas burner, which I do, as well as induction, or electric coils/glass-top. I highly recommend this kettle for anyone who is on the fence, like I was, it is a joy to use, and looks good just sitting on the stove top.

Pros:
Great Looking, Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Cons:
