If you're into brewing coffee at home — especially with the pourover method — you know that a good electric kettle is a great investment. It lets you boil water quickly and efficiently, and if the kettle is one particular type it will also let you get a better, more controlled brew. That one extra-fancy type is a gooseneck kettle, which lets you control the flow of water as you wet the grounds in a French press or pourover basket.
A little geeky? Yes. Necessary? No. But when a kettle is only $37, why not?
Even if you don't make pourover or feel the need for a gooseneck for technical reasons, this kettle is a great buy and frankly — that sleek neck makes this a pretty accessory to any kitchen.
Well, if you drink hot drinks that is — and who doesn't, this time of year?
