I’ve had this kettle for almost exactly a year. I love it! The only complaint is that it doesn’t have any indicator sound to let you know it has arrived at your specified temperature. I love that it will hold it there for up to an hour though! I also really like that only metal touches the water, no plastic. Also the gooseneck makes it prettier than most electric kettles :)

I’ve been thinking about getting this one as a second kettle for months! (:

Thanks Stephanie!

Is the 1-Liter capacity large enough for pu-erh Gongfu sessions?

Stephanie

It is for me and my little 4oz gaiwan :) I can get like 8 or so steeps without refilling. But it heats water so quickly it is no big deal for me to refill it in between steeps, too.

Would there be any advantage to the 1.7 liter model?

Cheri

I bought the 1.7L version because it was a little cheaper on Amazon. (I actually wound up being happier with the larger size.) I love it. I have learned that if I’m not paying attention I need to just make sure I hit the hold button when I’m heating up water so it’s not cooled off again before I get back to it. (Mine is at work, so this happens a lot.)

Stephanie

Ooohhhh, I should get one for work!

Cheri

It’s wonderful having one at work. I wish I’d done it sooner.

Skysamurai

that sounds awesome. whats the smallest amount it brews?

Stephanie

Hmm, I’m not sure Skysamurai. I usually just put in a little more than I think I need. I don’t usually measure!

Skysamurai

haha ok. So like enough for one/two cups? The water kettle I have right now has a minimum of 4 cups and I just don’t drink 4 cups in one sitting …ever haha. IF this one does a minimum less then that that would be awesome

Stephanie

I just emptied it out and measured exactly 2 cups and it performed just as usual. Next I’ll leave just 1 cup in there and test it on the resteep!

For those who may be considering a 1.7 L model, here’s some news from the World Tea Expo:
