Reviews around steel (4.67 of 5)

  • Stainless steel will stain and even rust if it comes into contact with an abrasive cleaner (such as any spray cleaner with bleach) -- which people are likely to be using in their kitchens
  • The kettle is not stainless steel, and the kettle will form rust spots wherever water contacts the kettle
  • And, what I really appreciate about this kettle is its stainless steel construction
  • I thought that the kettle was supposed to be stainless steel
  • Best one available, holds the temp, so you can set it and take a shower, perfect for the exact temp needed without that annoying boiling water s***.

Reviews around temp (4.33 of 5)

  • Currently I am heating my water to 170 degrees and it is the perfect temp for my coffee pour over
  • I never realized how important water temp was for coffee until I got this kettle.
  • it reached the set temp, but other than that, no complaints.
  • My only complain is my temp down button is a little unresponsive.
  • I usually forget to press the "hold" button right after I turn the kettle on, so sometimes it reaches the set temp and then loses a few degrees before I get to it

Reviews around control (4.28 of 5)

  • With the gooseneck spout, you have great control of water flow
  • Pouring with it took a bit of getting used to, but we love it much more than our old kettle that lacked temperature control.
  • The gooseneck spout allows for slow, controlled pouring without any dripping
  • I will admit that the controls are a little weird at first, and the relays inside clicking on and off are a little on the loud side, but both of these are minor issues compared to how helpful with, and I would imagine pretty unavoidable with any programmable kettle
  • The gooseneck spout is perfect for pour over coffee, and really gives you nice control over the flow.

Reviews around gooseneck (4.11 of 5)

  • Now, one year and eight months later, the gooseneck has detached from the main kettle, leaking hot water all over the place
  • The gooseneck makes it much easier to make pour over coffee in my chemex
  • The gooseneck makes it very easy to control the flow over water over the ground coffee.
  • Also the unit is designed such that a small amount of water remains in the unit and cannot be poured out gooseneck but must be dumped out top after removing lid.
  • Love the gooseneck, love the temperature control, love the extra cover for the buttons

Reviews around design (4.05 of 5)

  • This is just very poor quality control and design with Bonavita.**Please not the picture doesn't show the full error
  • We loved our older model, and really love the new spout design on this model.
  • The handle has a poor ergonomic design; it's not comfortable to grip at all, especially when the kettle is full of
  • Unacceptable to have a hot kettle design so susceptible to rust
  • This is not really a good design, other pots have the spout pressed in which seems more durable

Reviews around feature (4.05 of 5)

  • Other great features are the slow-pour stream, temperature hold feature and sleek design
  • The one missing feature is boil-dry protection, but I can live without it.
  • No beep, no alarm, nothing - I am amazed that this feature was overlooked in such an expensive small kitchen appliance!
  • My old pot had a window in the handle with water level clearly visible, and I miss that feature
  • The timer is an odd feature because it requires you to leave the kettle off the base for it to work.

Reviews around coffee (3.65 of 5)

  • I usually have my boiling water ready before I finish grinding my coffee

Reviews around spout (3.62 of 5)

  • The spout is great for regulating water flow and the kettle works great overall
  • Even though I carried the kettle in a box (in the back seat of my car) with the rest of my coffee making paraphernalia, the spout must've been knocked around because it leaked badly after that
  • Perfect temperature controlled kettle with correct spout for pour-over coffee.
  • The spout is great for regulating water flow and the kettle works great overall
  • If I did not want this for pour over use specifically, I would not recommend the skinny spout

Reviews around thing (3.48 of 5)

  • The temperature is accurate which is the most important thing.
  • If you're a regular tea or coffee drinker and care about what temperature your water is, I can't recommend this thing enough.
  • One thing to note, the temperature will creep a few degrees higher than your setting
  • Kettle works great, and the perfect thing if you're picky about your water temperature for coffee or tea
  • just the spout is the only annoying thing about it as far as I see

Reviews around water (3.15 of 5)

  • I use it everyday, and I love being in control of what temperature my water will stop boiling at.
  • This is the hot water kettle you should buy if you care about making tea, coffee, or ramen at the proper temperature
  • or so I feel from tap temperature) we are now used to boiling water when we need to.
  • All the visual indications told me that the kettle was off; yet the water continued to boil.
  • You will find yourself boiling water just to use this incredible invention

Reviews around bean (2.26 of 5)

  • Heats up water in just the amount of time it takes me to grind up my coffee beans for one cup of Aeropress coffee.
  • I brought a hand-grinder and a bag of my favorite freshly-roasted Ethiopian beans.
  • Sure, the product works as it should, but the shoddy craftsmanship (and acknowledgement from Bonavita that these kettles are susceptible to rust) is a red flag
  • Boiling water in here coincidentally times perfectly with manually grinding the coffee beans, so that's an unintended plus.
  • This one qualifies as "bad", but since they're replacing it, I list it as "not-so-good" for now

Reviews around leaf (2.18 of 5)

  • I've also seen youtube review videos in which Bonavita staff seems quite passionate about this kettle as they excitedly go over all the features
  • It's particularly great for brewing loose leaf tea that requires specific water temperature for optimal flavor
  • So five stars to Bonavita for the functionality of its gooseneck kettle, as well as for its friendly and efficient customer service
  • The water heats up within a couple of minutes, and the kettle shuts itself off (but still provides a temperature reading as the water slowly cools.
  • Sure, the product works as it should, but the shoddy craftsmanship (and acknowledgement from Bonavita that these kettles are susceptible to rust) is a red flag

Reviews around lid (2.10 of 5)

  • The BonaVita secures the lid with adjustable tabs so that you can set the tension as you desire it.
  • The lid also gets rust around it as does the top edge of the kettle
  • Unfortunately in under a month the lid and very top of the kettle (where the lid snaps into the kettle top) already has rust :-(
  • My last kettle (mistake) had a hinged lid that made filling ridiculously difficult
  • The kettle has for the most part functioned well up until about 6 months ago when the lid became increasingly hard to open, then finally broke at the plastic hinge yesterday.

Reviews around bite (1.90 of 5)

  • Only thing that I find is a bit annoying, but not worth removing a star, is how when you remove the kettle from stand, and place it back after pouring, you have to press the 'hold' button again so that it will maintain the temperature you chose
  • Pouring with it took a bit of getting used to, but we love it much more than our old kettle that lacked temperature control.
  • I got quite a bit of use out of the kettle, but bummed that it died
  • The timer is a bit hard to use: it automatically stops when you put the kettle back into the dock.
  • This makes it a bit unstable, not good for a heating device

Reviews around smell (1.76 of 5)

  • But leaving water in the pot can draw a musty smell over time, and heating the same water over multiple times will boil the oxygen
  • wash several times to clear plastic smell and aroma from unit.
  • The size is also great (1 L)
  • In addition, there is a weird metallic smell inside that won't go away
  • After washing the inside thoroughly several times and boiling water in an attempt to clean it out, it still leaves water with a strange, toxic smell

Reviews around rust problem (1.33 of 5)

  • It seems the rust problem was either intermittent or the company fixed it
  • So because of this the rust problem is not so much a problem because they are willing to replace your unit if this happens to you.
  • Really frustrating rust problem as previous reviewers have noted
  • No rusting problem, dries out, doesn't rust
  • I've only had this for one day, so we'll see if the rust problem has been solved.

  • Although I liked how quick, easy and quiet it boiled water, the rust issue has prompted me to dispose of this kettle and buy a new one to use on my oven.
  • I will continue to use the product for the time being but am wondering if the rust issue will slowly take over the kettle

Reviews around err error (1.00 of 5)

  • Before I begin the review, I wanted to address the HI ERR error, which I experienced within a month
  • First one arrived DOA.Second one gave the "Hi Err" error the second time we used it
  • I read the reviews about this kettle that reported getting the "HI ERR" error message, even when not at high altitudes
  • The replacement came promptly at no charge via UPS and the original base did work most of the time-- just sometimes got the "HI ERR" error and had to simply re-start the process.
  • but I got the HI ERR error code the second time I used it,
