Having a cup of coffee in the morning in peace is one of the most enjoyable parts of the day. Having a cup of joe in the stillness of the morning is great way to get your day kicked off, and the easier it is to get that cup of coffee, the better.
If you have never owned or used an electric kettle before, they are truly astounding in the simplicity and speed that it can bring to your day. In the time that it takes to boil water on the stove in a conventional kettle, you could already be enjoying your coffee with an electric kettle.
Today, we are taking a look at a pristine electric kettle from Bonavita, some of the pros and cons of this product, it’s key features, and how it could make your mornings, evenings, and even cooking even easier.
This kettle is made for anyone who needs boiling or piping hot water in a brief period of time. Time is the most valuable asset that you have in life, and the last thing that you need to be wasting your time on is waiting for water to boil. This is a nicer and higher-priced kettle than your generic electric kettles, but offers some unique selling points that separate it from the average kettles in the pack.
Here is an overview of some of the key features that this Bonavita Gooseneck kettle has to offer.
What you will love primarily about this kettle is just how quickly it can heat water. This small package delivers a powerful 1,000 watts of power, so that it can boil water in just a few short minutes. What’s also impressive is that this kettle can hold an entire liter of water, and can still bring that much water to a boil in the blink of an eye. The time that you are going to save in boiling water for your french press of coffee or a cup of tea is going to astound you, and make you want to throw your stovetop kettle in the garbage.
Another thing that we really love about this model of electric kettle is that it has a real-time temperature display. The temperature display shows exactly what the current temperature of the water in your kettle, and is accurate within just 2 degrees fahrenheit. This feature alone makes this kettle perfect for coffee and tea pros who need to get their water to a precise temperature to brew the perfect cup of coffee or tea.
Another nice added bonus of this kettle is that it has a count up timer. You can use the timer to perfectly clock out the amount of time that you want to steep your tea or coffee. This is a pleasant and unusual display feature that you don’t see with most kettles.
Possibly the greatest selling point of this kettle is the level of customization that you get when it comes to heating water. This model comes with six temperature presets that you can use to do anything from steeping delicate teas to getting water hot enough to cook a bowl of grits or oatmeal. You will see that features in some high quality kettles, but where this Bonavita model goes the extra distance is in allowing you to select your own temperature preferences, in one degree increments. So if you really appreciate being as precise as possible with your brewing, this kettle allows you to do that.
The gooseneck spout on this model not only looks great, but is extremely functional too. Having a small-mouthed, gooseneck spout prevents any spilling or splattering that may occur when pouring, and is a nice safety precaution for avoiding dangerous burns.

All around, this is an extremely versatile kettle that has a lot to offer.

If you are a coffee or tea snob that needs fine-tuned temperatures, this would be great for you.
