Fellow’s Stagg EKG has very few weaknesses. When it comes to pros, however, it is, firstly, gorgeous — as I said in my review of it, its look is something like a “wormhole collaboration between Sith lords and Muji’s design team.” It also happens to be the fastest heating kettle I have ever used — bringing water to ideal coffee brewing temperatures (195-205 degrees Fahrenheit) in a minute-and-a-half.
It’s remarkably easy to use, as it’s controlled entirely with a few pushes and spins of the knob on the front, where you’re able to change temperature course, turn on a pour timer or engage the hold temperature function (holds for up to 60 minutes). The gooseneck pour spout, for its part, keeps your pour steady and slow no matter how high you tilt it.
Whether you’re browsing coffee Instagram or barista competitions, this is the kettle you’ll see most often. It’s the best you’re going to get, and it’s 20 percent off today and today only. Discount applied at checkout.
