With the new year inching closer and closer, so many folks have begun making a concerted effort to think about what they can do to improve their lives.
While adopting better eating habits and setting life goals are usually at the top of many people’s lists, upgrading an area in their home is usually a close second. If this is on your mind and you don’t have much space to work with, this chic gooseneck electric kettle is a perfect choice.
Beautifully crafted by the folks at Balmuda, this super lightweight Japanese-inspired kettle is the perfect size for common kitchen needs like coffee and tea drinking, cooking and more. It holds enough water for three standard cups of coffee (or two large mugs).
Its most outstanding feature, however, is its precision pour spout that’s designed for the optimal pour-over flow rate. The unique spout also allows for water to flow without too much of a tilt. This allows the water to best flow exactly where you want it to go — without any splashes or mess.
Adding to its convenience, it boils water in just a matter of minutes. Also, further setting it apart from other leading electric kettles on the market is its subtle power light and minimalistic labeling. While many other electric kettles feature glaring power lights and bold instructional labeling, the Balmuda kettle boasts a gentle glow when powered on and features no distracting external labels.
“The style is simple and elegant,” one shopper wrote. “The feel of the handle and the kettle balance when making pour-over coffee are perfect.”
Another stunned reviewer wrote, “[It’s] gorgeous on my countertop and pours extremely precisely,” before adding that it pours “as slow or as hard as you like with extreme accuracy.”
The only con one shopper mentioned is that, unlike most standard electric kettles, the Balmuda does not click into place, but rather “kind of just balances.”
