Bonavita Variable Temp Kettle

I love this this little kettle! There really isn't much to say...and that's a good thing.


  1. The narrow spout offers a smooth and controlled pour.
  2. The handle provides a comfortable grip.
  3. The kettle is an elegant shape and looks nice on the counter.
  4. Temperature can be controlled and monitored from the base.
  5. The kettle retains heat when off the base.
  6. The base cord coils into a hidden compartment.
  7. It heats fast and produces minimal steam.

And some wishes...a short list.


  1. The base isn't attractive.
  2. The base functionality is not intuitive.

Really, that's all there is to say. This 1 liter kettle does what is says it does with competence. It looks and works great. And, it's an enjoyable part of my precision brewing experience.
