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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Let me tell you. The Buono kettle is in a whole different league. The amount of control is amazing. I didn't really think it would make that big of a difference. But I am now a true believer in what all the reviews say. I would almost go as far as recommending saving up to buy this kettle first, then buy your V60 or Chemex pour over brewing device second (not really...but you get what I am saying).
The only comment I would give, the kettle is pretty thin metal. The bottom is not like a regular kettle's thickness. So I hear and think it is fine to put on a gas stove, but since I do not have to, I am going to hold out.
Also the kettle holds a constant temperature pretty well. Starting with a not preheated kettle. I poured boiling water in, put the lid on a 30 seconds later the temp was 206. Once it got down to 203 I started my pour. 2 minutes into my pour my temp was 200 and at the end of my pour it was down to about 198.
Otherwise, it has a few things going against it:
1. The price: it simply costs too much for what it offers.
2. The quality: it is very light-weight, flimsy stainless steel, and it rusts on the bottom (which is inexcusable for a tea kettle costing this much).
3. The design: It narrows toward the top, making it very inconvenient to wash and dry the inside (my had cannot fit through the top, and water gets trapped in the edges of the much wider base). If you fill the kettle and bring it to a rolling boil, water will actually boil out of the spout. Finally, it does not have any calibration lines on the inside indicating how many cups of water are in the kettle, which would have been handy.
Unless Hario happens to hold a patent on a kettle with a spout like this, there is room here for another company to design a much more solid, better designed product, in my opinion. Ideally, someone would make an electric kettle of this design (all stainless steel, no plastic of any kind anywhere, a narrow pour spout) that allowed you to set the temperature you want the water to reach and maintain. Hard to believe this is unavailable at any price, but I have yet to find it (please let me know in comments if you know of one!).
For now, we're stuck with the Hario, which does the job adequately, if a bit expensively.
UPDATE: Our wait is over, folks; the perfect kettle has arrived: Bonavita 1-Liter Variable Temperature Digital Electric Gooseneck Kettle

Super sleek & great design. Perfect for Chemex users out there who need the control that this spout gives.Published 8 days ago by Amazon Customer
Ditch your old water kettle with its top spout for this. Imagine being able to pour slowly and directly over your freshly ground coffee beans for your morning pour-over... Read morePublished 13 days ago by shell
Rusted through in a little over a month. Unusable at this point.
But for the rust it worked well.
This is a decent kettle with a thin spout. With that you can aim the water with more accuracy. I did let it boil dry once and it's been discolored since then but has lasted so far.Published 19 days ago by Consumer Goods
