Electric Pourover kettle

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I've just moved into a new flat and need to buy a new kettle and was wondering if i could forego a regular kettle and only have an electric pourover kettle.

Anyone have one gathering dust?

Would anyone advise against using a pourover as your prinary kettle for cooking water etc?

Cheers

Ewan

I would advise against it. 

Electric pour over kettles are expensive and if you use it for everything it will wear out quicker and cost you more to replace.

Capacity is often much less than a regular kettle so you might end up boiling it more for cooking than you anticipate.

Generally they are slow to boil compared to a cheap fast boil kettle.

You might end up using different water for coffee than your tap water so it is easier to keep separate.

Scaling may or may not be an issue depending on your location.

Thanks Step21. You make good points. (even if they dont provide me the justification  i wanted to buy an  expensive kettle!)

Am in london so scale is a real issue.

TBH I just moved into the place and havent  given the communal kitchen a proper look around there may well be a  standard kettle there allowing me to reserve the gooseneck for coffee and tea in my room.

Please do post photos and details and i'll get back to you tonight once i have a clearer idea of my requirements.

This is exactly what you want to do. Get a pour over kettle as it helps so much for V60 etc. If there is no communal kettle then get an additional cheap fast boil kettle. I've got an Asda branded one for £15 that does the job for kitchen duties.
