There are infinite variations on the humble kettle, but we have a strong preference for one kind: the gooseneck kettle. If you've thought about getting one of your own, Amazon is currently offering a flash deal on this simple but high-quality gooseneck kettle. But hurry — the deal only runs until 6:30 p.m. EST today. After that time, you'll have to pay the usual $60.
Gooseneck kettles have been rising in popularity, thanks to pour over coffee. The unusual spout, which, yes, resembles long-necked waterfowl, allows you to slowly pour the hot water over the coffee grounds. Regular spouts, by comparison, give you less control over the hot water.
Even if you aren't making your own pour over brew, gooseneck kettles still work great for your basic hot-water needs. We love, for example, that this kettle has a thermometer to help you get the perfect temperature of water for whatever you're brewing, be it coffee or tea. The offset handle also means you don't need to worry about burning your hand over steam when the water is hot.
Coffee Gator's kettle is also rust-resistant and made from high-quality stainless steel that will last for years. You can use it on any stove or range, and, perhaps just as importantly, we love the look and feel of it.
