Hario's V60 Buono Coffee Drip Kettle is a stunning stainless steel kettle that's easy to use, and offers a thin spout for easy pouring. Has a generous capacity of 27 ounces of liquid, or roughly 3-4 cups. Works with IH ranges, and gas and electric stoves. Is perfectly compatible with Hario's V60 Coffee Drippers.
Top Customer Reviews
The kettle is cheap, it felt light and flimsy, more like galvanized tin than stainless steel (check photos of bottom of kettle). The welding points on the spout were bad, the lid didn't fit quite right, so if you pick the kettle up and tilt it, the lid slides around. I didn't bother with it and prepared to return it.
I went down to my local foodie shop, On The Table (in French) where they had this kettle in stock AND they price matched.The one they had was made in Japan, so I compared the two. Absolutely nothing to compare. The qualities were like night and day. (Chinese product on the left or first picture, Japanese on the right or second picture)
If you're interested in this kettle, I would recommend getting one locally to ensure you're getting the one that's Made in Japan.
I used a regular pot with a pour spout 3 months before I purchased this kettle. The following points are based primarily on the differences I noticed between the regular pot and the kettle.
1. The pour control with the kettle is VASTLY superior to the control you get with a product with a normal "spout" area. The kettle's thin spout and long distance the water has to travel gives you a small, smooth stream in which to pour on your coffee grounds.
2. Because of the points in #1, the kettle allows you to pour water over the coffee smoothly and at a consistent pace, therefore giving you an EVEN extraction of your coffee, which translates to a nice, consistent taste in your cup. This is what you're going for.
3. The kettle holds enough water for about 5 regular cups of coffee (i.e. it holds ~40 ounces of water). I own the 40oz Chemex coffee maker, so for me, a full kettle = a full pot of coffee.
4. The kettle is SAFE to boil your water with. However, the conductivity of the kettle's metal is not as good as a standard pot, so it will take you roughly twice as long to boil water in the kettle versus boiling it in a pot. (I bought a separate water kettle for this reason.)
5. As mentioned in other reviews, this kettle is hard to clean. The opening is hard to get your hand into, and the small spout makes everything but a pipe cleaner impossible to clean the inside. If you live in an area with hard water (like I do), then you'll want to filter your water before using this kettle to cut down on the deposit build up.
Hands-down, this kettle gives you the control you need to make an excellent cup of coffee. If you brew your coffee through a pour over method (such as the Chemex), then this is the kettle for you. Other than the cleaning difficulty and long(ish) time it takes for this kettle to boil water, I highly recommend this product.

Country of Origin:
Hario: Made in Japan.
Bonavita: Made in China.
Hario: Practical capacity: .8 liter. Full capacity 1.2 liters.
Bonavita: Capacity: 1 liter.
Hario: Gooseneck spout attached to body at lower point. Less water remains pooled at the bottom after complete pouring.
Bonavita: Gooseneck spout attached to body at higher point. More water remains pooled at the bottom after complete pouring.
Hario: Straight handle. Ergonomics not optimal.
Bonavita: Curved handle. Ergonomics better.
Hario: Stainless steel heavier and thicker. Seems higher quality steel. Handle good.
Bonavita: Stainless steel lighter and thinner. Handle good.
Quality of Construction:
Hario: Spout and handle attached with quality hardware. Seems more secure.
Bonavita: Spout and handle securely attached, but hardware appears to be less durable.
Hario: Lid does not fit tight. Will fall out when tipped at certain angle.
Bonavita: Lid fits tight. Will not fall out when tipped at certain angle. Handle has two screws located on underside at top, which impact finger comfort. Body has unfinished/uncurved inside top lip, which impacts hand comfort when cleaning inside body.
Appearance: Both look nice. Bonavita sits about an inch taller because of the design of the lid.
Pour Rate: Practically the same.
Recommendation: Both Hario and Bonavita will get the job done. I chose to keep Hario, because of the quality. But if money or style is a factor, Bonavita will work just fine. An alternative to these kettles, which I have not tried but appears to be of a very high quality, is the Kalita Wave Pot Kettle from Japan, priced at $107.Kalita 52073 Wave Pot Kettle
