Enter this Bonavita kettle (or, if you prefer the style, the equivalent kettle made by Hario--but I much prefer this one, it's gorgeous!).
Here's how I use it:
1) Boil water in my normal kettle
2) When it boils, transfer it into this Bonavita kettle (this step also helps cool the water down from boiling)
3) Throw a thermometer into the water and wait for it to cool down to proper brewing temperature, or if you're hardcore, wait until your gut tells you the water is ready
4) Pour about 30-50ml of water onto your coffee grounds, making sure to wet them evenly. Wait 30 seconds or so until the grounds stop bubbling (that's the bloom that you get when freshly roasted and ground beans release some CO2).
5) Pour an even stream in a circular motion over your grounds in whatever brewing vessel you're using (French press, Chemex, Aeropress, etc.)
6) Have some freakin' great coffee
The neat, tempered stream that comes out of the gooseneck spout on this thing makes it very easy to direct the water onto specific spots, which helps you wet your grounds evenly and manage the bloom on fresher grounds well. It's also easier to pour water slowly without it becoming a trickle, which can lead to splashing and ultimately leaves you with a messy counter top. So with a standard kettle, I found myself simply flooding my grounds, which for pour-over brewers can lead to inconsistent extraction.
Overall, it's a great, attractive kettle that helps you brew better coffee more consistently (again, especially with pour-over brewers). It's large enough to fill an 8-cup French press with water to spare; you could probably fill a 10-cup brewer with one kettle full. Highly recommended!
Update: my thermometer hack https://instagram.com/p/4B9qKIocRL/
He's been using it since August and it's been holding up fine so far. The inside of the pot hasn't shown any discoloration or tarnish, like noted in other reviews.
He does not directly boil water in this kettle. He just uses it for pouring. He'll usually boil water in our tea kettle, then he pours it into this - because I guess you don't want boiling hot water? This cools the water down a bit and then he pours over. He'll pour out excess water and let it dry when he's done with it. He' perfectly fine with this routine.
I've seen many complaints about rusting which I initially took into account until I actually looked at some of my "Stainless steel" products. They all pretty much have some small degree of surface rust, even the heavier pieces, that I have been using without realizing it(that goes for discoloration as well). I do however dry the inside about a minute after the pouring the last bit of water so that the rusting is not exacerbated on the inside. The fact that it's relativity thin allows for a quick heat up and a quick cool down.
After recieving another, larger, MarthaStewart kettle for my birthday and having it spew boiling water everywhere, we replaced it with this one and have never looked back.
Word to the wise, if you leave this kettle on by accident with no water in it, the top will melt, the spout will snap off, and your house will smell like a burning toy factory for a week. Just saying. Oh, and you'll have to buy a new kettle.
But I did, and I bought the same exact one. So that should say something.
