Been watching this for a while now. This is the lowest price I've seen on the Stagg with wooden handles. They also have the one with white and wooden accents

This is basically the best kettle you can get. Electric has many advantages over stove top since you can accurately control brew temp for some types of tea for example.

This is a great kettle! I have the black one I bought at Costco couple years back and it's still working good as new. It heats up water pretty fast and has a really strong power draw. It used to flip the circuit breaker if I used another appliance on the same circuit. It is really pretty, comfortable holding it, and pours slowly and consistently.

Yes, there are kettles for significantly cheaper. Yes you can probably get the same "features" with a kettle that is around $50 or less. However this is a pretty good price, the functions are very well designed, and it's pretty. You're paying a premium for that and I think its worth it if you enjoy pour over. If you need bulk hot water, this ain't for you.

Yeah, as a note for anyone considering this: It's for pourover coffee first and foremost. It has an extraordinarily slow flow rate so it'll be annoying slow for even something like a cup of tea.

James Hoffman tested the temperature of the grounds/water mix while making a pour over and the temp hovered near the 190f mark. The temp of the water in the kettle was "just off boil", or near 212f. The ideal bew temp for coffee is 195-205. Unless I'm missing something
It seems these variable temp kettles are overkill for pour over coffee.

You can set the temperature of the water and it will level set at the point.

Great for different teas which might require lower temp.

Agree for teas or other beverages that require temps <190f. While Hoffman did find the result in the cup pleasing, the ability to heat water to boiling using a $15 kettle on the stove appears to be the most cost efficient tool. If you want an electric kettle, a $50 version would do just as well.

And for reference, I was able to repeat Hoffman's temp method as well.

ok, it's a good kettle, but can it be "excellent" like this?

I recognize that the Stagg EKG is the big brand name that most coffee people will say you have to have, but I am a coffee nut too and I think the electric gooseneck kettles on Amazon with digital displays and granular temperature control are every bit as good at half the price.

I have something similar to this and it works beautifully. Heats up quickly, has a temp hold function, and zero metallic taste or anything.

Correct. It's already been addressed in this thread. But you're paying extra for the aesthetics and build quality. Functionally, most electric kettles will work about the same.

There's also the shape and execution of the spout. A poor spout will lead to a lot of splashing, a good spout will produce a more laminar flow. I have not tried any of the others, but it's those small details that are frequently missed in cheaper versions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKr-cRSszC4

I have the analog version of this that I received for free from red rooster coffee for subscribing to their beans (I highly recommend them). It pours perfectly and the built in temperature gauge is only off by 3 degrees according to my digital cooking thermometer.
