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.

This type of kettle is a special-use product and it has a few different names. I have heard "long-neck", "goose neck", "drip", and "pour over" kettle. More or less, this is a smaller & lightweight kettle (about 4 cups capacity but performance is best when you are closer to a max of 3-3.5 cups) and it is made for control. By control I mean that it pours slowly, and in a predictable manner to allow the user to have maximum control over how much water they pour. For usage of certain brew products (such as the Hario Drip Coffee maker, the Chemex, or the AeroPress, this control is hugely beneficial. For when you are making a cup of tea or two for yourself, this is also hugely beneficial. With this increased control, the sort of pour-over kettle also greatly reduces messes, and arguably reduces the chance of accidents leading to burns.
As you can see by the listing, the capacity of this is smaller (27 ounces max) because the products this is made primarily for have relatively low capacities (and many are frequently used for preparing a single-serving.) The implication is that this V60 (and most pour-over kettles) are not very suitable to brew a large quantity of a hot drink. My solution to this is a $13 giant kettle for the rare occasions I am making a large quantity of tea that exceeds the capacity of my Hario V60.
Being stainless steel, this product has a few functional advantages:
--It works with gas, electric, induction, and even open-range sources of heat
--It does NOT react to the boiling water (so the drink you are preparing will not have any off-taste that comes from the brewing tools)
--It is easy to clean
--It is highly heat-resistant & durable (the pour spout has been beefed up so that it holds up to long-term usage)
--It is lightweight, making it easy to maneuver and therefore increasing control
The method I use most to make coffee is with the Chemex (I also brew tea in it). Being a borosilicate glass, I like this because it has absolutely no effect on flavor and I find that many other brewing methods result in the flavor of coffee or tea being modified due to the materials that the brewing apparatus is made from (Hario's own V60 Drip Brew is like the Chemex as it does not impact the flavor...and also like the Chemex, it uses much thicker/denser filters to achieve coffee of notable purity and good taste.) Some kettles have surfaces that can react with boiling water and modify the flavor. While I like borosilicate for things not going on the stove, I prefer a metal kettle for something constantly seeing high-heat and temp jumps. So I purchased a Hario V60 Kettle and since then it has been a great companion.
The build quality of this is very good. While the Hario is more expensive than many other kettles, it is a quality piece. The pour spout is STRONG and can withstand the beating that a daily-use kettle will see. The handles have good ergos, are comfortable, and have reasonably good heat resistance. The lid design is also excellent in that it does not become tighter/looser as temperature changes (something another kettle I have does terribly) and the handle on the lid makes it easy to remove without making contact with the metal surfaces. While this product does not whistle, it does have three top vent holes that visibly release steam when the water is boiling, and it is very visibly noticeable (like 2-3+ feet high at a full-boil). The lid should always be placed on the unit in a way in which these three holes are furthest AWAY from the handle (to prevent steam burns.)
There is only one possible downside (other than price) which is that this kettle is intended to ONLY boil water. It is not the best candidate for brewing coffee or tea directly in (I highly recommend brewing inside a borosilicate or ceramic pitcher/cup/jar because of how borosilicate is non-reactive regardless of temp or pH.) However, I look at this as being more by-design than a downside...not to mention how this sort of kettle is very impractical to brew directly in.
The V60 kettle is quickly becoming an industry standard for this kind of pour-over kettle. It's popular in the home setting; it's popular with coffee houses for professional usage, and it's not hard to see why: the Hario V60 Kettle is well-made to a point in which it can withstand years of constant usage, it performs exactly how this sort of [very useful] kettle should function, and it is reasonably-priced for this type of product. So I highly recommend the Hario V60 Kettle.
