What’s not to like? This does not take up a lot of counter space and does exactly what it says. You can program any temperature you want to bring the water to. There are some standard presets but you can use the up/down arrows to set your own. It remembers your custom temperature, so no need to reset if you use the same one. The spout is perfect, allowing you to fill even a very small teapot. Lastly, there is a built in count up timer, so you can time your steep.

Kevin,
Can the Bonavita be used with a digital timer so that one’s tea water is ready to go at the desired temperature for that all-important first cup of get-one-going morning tea? Thanks!

Kevin

Yes it can. It has a nice built in timer so that your tea can be ready at any time you choose. I use this feature often, load up the water and tea the night before and then just transfer to a thermos as I’m heading out to work.

looseTman

http://www.bonavitaworld.com/docs/BV3825V%20Callouts.pdf specifically mentions a count up timer for accurate brewing. However, it doesn’t mention timer operation. Has Bonavita updated this model? What is the model number of your Bonavita?

Kevin

Sorry, I was thinking this was the breville thread…my mistake. No this model has no timer function at all, however it pretty quick to come up to temp, especially if the kettle is not full.

looseTman

No problem. Can the Bonavita be used with an external digital timer ( e.g.: http://www.intermatic.com/en/Products/Timers/PlugInTimers/Indoor_Timers/DT620.aspx) so that one’s tea water is ready to go at the desired temperature for that all-important first cup of morning tea? Thanks!

Kevin

Nope, it won’t work. Just tried it on mine. Set the temp and unplugged it. When I plugged it back in, it was shut off.

Thanks for checking!

Very happy with this. I was looking for a basic electric kettle to heat up water for between one cup to four cups, so I could have a random glass of tea. Or both myself and my BF could take traveler mugs to work with tea in the morning.

With cold water, Filled to max-level, it took about 10 minutes to get to 212 (F). When I finally made a cup of tea with much less water, it took only a couple of minutes to get to 180 for me. It has a nice hold function which keeps your tea at the temp you need. As well as preset temperatures (just click the “temp” button and you rotate through the options).

And I did NOT know this when I purchased it, but after you pour your tea, you just press the + button and a timer starts up, counting down. So you can use that to watch how long your tea has been steeping. It isn’t a very useful timer for me because I want an alert to tell me my 3 minutes are over. But- it does let me know how long it steeped exactly. Helpful!

So far I really love this. It’s going to get tons of use. I was weary at first because reviews on Amazon spoke about rust. But apparently there was an old batch that wasn’t coated or treated properly that had rust issues. It seems they’ve been replacing the defective models (if you dig through amazon comments you’ll find some of these).

Perfect for what I need!

I’m thrilled with this kettle. The temps are accurate and it’s fast to heat up. It also has a small profile; I keep it right on my desk so I can have tea at any time of the day.

One suggestion: it would be awesome if the kettle could emit a small chime when the water has reached the right temp. Sometimes I get distracted and forget I had water heating. This would probably need to be optional, but it would be a really nice option to have!
