- Constructed of all natural materials- no plastic
- Wood lid top and handle are durable and visually pleasing
- Pour spout enables perfect control of pour direction and volume- huge plus if you are using it for pour-over coffee
- Lid comes right off when pulled, but has a small metal catch that prevents it from inadvertently falling off when pouring
- Durable steel remains rust and splotch-free, shiny and looks brand new after a full year of heavy use
- Pleasantly lightweight
I use this directly over a flame on a gas range top. I was worried the wood handle would present a risk, but it is positioned far enough out from the body of the kettle as to never come into contact with the flame.
The 1 liter volume allows for excellent pairing with a 800 ml Hario Range Server for pour over coffee. Though I admit it felt a little ridiculous paying this much for a kettle and then having the item shipped from Japan, it seemed to be the best option for a simple well-made plastic-free kettle. After using it for a year, I've become addicted to the pour control that the awesome spout on this thing affords.
I've been using this kettle every day for over two years now on a gas range top over a direct flame and it continues to function perfectly
Additionally, it's probably the most beautiful pot on the market and finely crafted as well. Elegant, almost to a fault, the craftsmanship is top shelf, rivaling modern day silver smithing standards in both design and workmanship. The wood handle and lid knob add an element of Nippon design to a classic shape that could just as easily be Turkish as contemporary Japanese. A particularly nice touch is the beveled brass plate atop the handle providing assurance that your thumb won't directly contact the hot handle bracket. Very much in the Bauhaus tradition of form and function.
Finally, Kalita had the good sense to attach the little wood top knob with a simple stainless phillips head screw rather than some hideous plastic grommet and rivet assy that might have saved them a few pennies per unit. If the knob gets loose it's a simple matter to tighten it up. If by some chance it should ever fail completely you can just get a replacement knob or screw from any hardware store. Too often even the most utilitarian of objects seem intentionally engineered to fail by employing some unique, cheaply made and difficult to replace component when simple readily available hardware would ensure the product a long life and happy customers.
As a pour over pot it's a pleasure to use as it issues a very controlled stream of hot water just where you want it to go. As you near the edge of your grounds you can back off the pour without the sloshing or dribbling common when trying to use a conventional tea kettle. While you can heat water in it just like any other kettle, I use a separate one to boil the water, then fill the Kalita with the appropriate amount to use for a pour over. I find this additional step allows the water to cool and aerate slightly, creating a better extraction. Albeit expensive*, it's one of my favorite things.
* The market price has dropped dramatically since this kettle showed up in retail shops a couple years ago. It originally sold for over $100. At the current price it's a flat out bargain.
The wooden ball knob on the cap came off :( it is secured onto the lid by way of a friction fit on barbed bolt, rather a properly threaded threaded hole as I had assumed.
The cap can at times be very tight however I never had a problem yanking off the lid until now. I guess repeatedly yanking the lid open has taken its toll on the little wooden ball.
Frankly I am a little disappointed how the ball is secured to the cap. Because of the tightness of the lid, I can no longer remove the lid by gripping the ball. I have since learned to hold the kettle and with the same hand use my thumb to push upward against the side of the partially lifted/tilted lid, using the handle as leverage. This way It comes off much, much easier. I should have been doing that from the beginning. The wooden ball, it seems was not designed to carry that much load pulling on it. So from here in, I'm more gentle with the wooden ball on the lid, and just using my thumb to open the lid.
Anyway, for this I feel it necessary to reduce the rating down to 4 stars. I will restore the 5-star rating only if the manufacturer address this issue by the following measures:
1. ensuring the lid can be installed and removed from the kettle with only light pressure, thereby reducing the amount of load placed upon the ball handle.
2. Revise the ball handle to be secured onto the lid with a better mechanism--a machined bolt or a proper wood screw, not a barbed bolt.
3. Provide some guidance to avoid users pulling hard on the wooden ball, and show them how to flip the lid open with the thumb while holding the handle as mentioned.
