Company Name: BONAVITA GOOSENECK KETTLE
I was thrilled when the Bonavita kettle arrived and honestly did not know what to expect. Unwrapping was a breeze and the parts are pretty self explanatory however there is a handy little instruction manual that comes with that includes instructions, new times and even a section on how to make amazing coffee with your kettle. We are making tea so let’s just focus on our tea kettle.
If you don’t read this review you are missing out, this kettle is pretty amazing!
TEA SELECTION: GOOSENECK ELECTRIC KETTLE
There is so much to like about this kettle and first off it’s Stainless Steel which I love because I am not a fan of aluminum and feel stainless steel offers us a better quality brew (even in my cookware I choose stainless).
The handle, when I first picked up the kettle and felt that extra supportive notch I knew I was home! Your hand really has control over the kettle and the pour, it’s great!
The base is really unique and there is this plastic cover that you may want to discard DON’T, it’s very important to keep that and use it to protect base. Now you do not have to use it, but I choose to keep mine on.
I’ll be honest, this kettle is making my Keurig take a back seat to anything I brew.
I’ve been wanting to review more products for our tea community and thrilled that Bonavita agreed to send me their Gooseneck Kettle as well as a Glass Carafe (see review HERE)
As read above this kettle is quality and not something just thrown together, there is a lot of thought that went into this.
The gooseneck design makes sure you are getting the warmest water first and the pour is controlled both with the handle design as well as the spout.
The heating element is FAST, that is all I can say. I played around with different degrees just to see how it heated and I filled the kettle up each time, heating took less then a couple minutes and I was thrilled. I poured my water and boom I had my tea at perfect controlled temperature. (140-212 F), there was no guessing the water temperature was controlled by me, it was set and then displayed. Any change (when I removed the kettle and put it back) was again noted on the display.
This has 1500 watts for quick heating and displays both in Fahrenheit and Celsius.
There is a 60 minute heat and hold feature too that’s pretty fantastic for those all day long tea drinkers (me).
The dimensions are as follows:
Cost is Suggested Retail @ $119.99
And comes with a 1 year warranty
All in all I fell in love with the Bonavita Gooseneck Kettle and it will be a regular feature in my home and with my reviews from now on. I suggest you take a look at the product and see how well it will fit into your tea (and coffee) regime.
