Top Three Pour Over Kettles
The Round Up
On today’s Top Three, we selected the best kettles to complement your pour over coffee maker. Whether you’re brewing with a Hario V60 or Chemex, you need a good kettle to control the flow and accuracy of your pour. Our top three pour over kettles are the Bonavita 1L Electric Gooseneck Variable Temperature Kettle, Fellow Stagg Pour Over Kettle and Hario Buono Coffee Drip Kettle in copper.
Notice anything similar about these kettles? Our top three picks are gooseneck kettles! A gooseneck spout is designed to control the water flow to allow more accuracy during your pour—and accuracy is important for pour over! With the spout slowly the flow rate, you can evenly saturate grounds and extract the best flavor from your beans.
First on our list is the Bonavita Electric Gooseneck Variable Temperature Kettle. We often use several of these pour over kettles in our stores and in the breakroom for its precision control and—drumroll please—programmable temperature settings! Unlike the other kettles on our list, the Bonavita features a built-in temperature control at the base to set for the ideal brew temperature. It comes with six factory temperatures and boasts a temperature variance of plus or minus one degree—impressive accuracy! The Bonavita’s LED display makes it intuitive to operate and convenience.
Our next pick marries ingenuity with traditional design. The Fellow Stagg Pour Over Kettle features a weighted handle to improve the accuracy and control of your pour. As you pour water the weighted grip counterbalances the weight change and creates an easier pour! The Stagg’s balanced design is also complemented by the Erlenmeyer flask-shaped body and the bottom-mounted gooseneck spout—making the Stagg one of our prettier picks. Last, but certainly not least, the Stagg has an integrated thermometer in the lid, making it simpler and quicker to read the temperature.
Last on our list is the copper Hario Buono Coffee Drip Kettle. We’ve been admiring oodles of copper-clad kitchen appliances—looking at you copper Rocket Espresso Appartemento—and we had to put the Hario on our list. Besides the beautiful copper body, the Hario's honeycomb-shaped design complements the ergonomic handle grip—fashion meets function! It is also quick to heat up thanks to a small 0.9-liter size and wide base exposing more surface area for the stovetop to heat. The Hario’s elegance and simplicity make us want to use it again and again.
