dont care for mine.. hard to clean due to small top, rusts, and honestly glass body kettles are better and generally easier to clean.
Does the heating base for this kettle use induction to heat the carafe or conduction like a normal hot plate? I'm curious because I need both a pour-over kettle and a hot plate so I can keep my Chemex carafe warm after making some coffee. I can never get it heated right on my gas stove. I know some kettles' hot plate has a central post to keep the carafe centered over the heating element... does this have a post?

Neither one actually, it has a heating element built into the base of the kettle that makes connection when its docked. Its not just a regular kettle heated by the base.

Ahh, ok. Thanks for getting back to me. I guess that's probably how most of the kettles with bases work, then. I wondered about how any sort of hotplate might work without melting the plastic shell at the base of the kettle. I should have realized the possibility of an internal heating element.
I have had one of these for 3ish years now. Use it at least once a day. It is flawless. No rust, no leaks, works great! Super satisfied and do recommend

Ditto... though we've only had ours a bit more than a year. Really like the larger 1.7L capacity not for how much it holds we never use it at full capacity, but for how quickly it heats having a higher wattage element than the smaller model. This replaced a simple Hario electric kettle and I've found the Hold function of the digital Bonavita to be indispensable.
Quote from Amazon " This kettle, while nice for the first few months, develops rust and leaks, creating a mess all over one's kitchen counters. The kettle is not stainless steel, and the kettle will form rust spots wherever water contacts the kettle. My particular kettle, in addition to rust spots inside of the kettle, also developed rust and a leak at the base of the gooseneck on the bottom where the gooseneck meets the kettle. It leaks EVERYWHERE, and when tilting the kettle it will leak profusely - which is a great feature considering that it is leaking near boiling hot water on you. I submitted a warranty claim and it was denied despite the clear manufacturing default. I would recommend fully to save your money ($75 or $99) and spend it on a company that doesn't willfully deceive their customers. "

I've used the 1L one every day for a year, also not one spec of rust on it. Also i've worked in the metal industry and stainless can rust, there are many different stainless steel alloys that have different resistance to corrosion. I think something corrosive might have gotten on this persons kettle to make it rust.

I've had the 1.7L offered in this drop for over a year now as well, used at least once day, oftentimes several times more than that as my wife drinks tea throughout the day. No leaks, No rust. Still looks new. Just keeps doing its job (knock on wood).
I have a gooseneck electric kettle (different model.) I recommend them for pour-over coffee. Very easy to control the flow and you can make a great cup of coffee in your Chemex or Melitta.
I want it to start at 40c or 104f for the best green tea I've ever bought.
Considering how often this drop going alive again, I'm sure is still waiting until Massdrop provide the 220V Options.
I bought this a little over a year ago and at 13 months it stopped heating. Bonavita did agree to replace it under warranty. However while not wanting to be without a kettle for a month, I got the Brewista 1.2L kettle. It's $89.99 on Amazon and it's better in every way. The biggest part, I don't miss the 1.7L capasity. I have found 1.2L is perfect for the wife and I. Plus, the 1.2L gives me way better pour control.

huh?

You wrote xapasoty. Which I looked up on Google and they came back with capacity. I was wondering if that was a typo.
84.24 on Prime, and a 1.0L version for $61 http://amzn.to/2G4zHpq $10 difference in price and you still have to pay for shipping, massdrop needs to either offer a better discount or offer free shipping, at least as fast as amazon, otherwise why would anyone want to buy it from MD??
$84.24 and in stock on amazon, for comparison.
Kettle leaks, what to do? Received in 2 months
Does it only support fahrenheit...?

Yes. If you look closely at the picture, the right most button changes between F & C.
Any update on shipping or expected delivery?
How the hell are you hosting another drop for this product when the one scheduled to ship DECEMBER 12TH hasn't even arrived at your facility yet??? Garbage.
My son had one and took it with him when he moved. I loved it. But my husband bought me a regular electric kettle that I will use for now. Hopefully someday I can get one.
they would add a 1.7L gooseneck model right after I've gotten the 1L gooseneck.
220V version would be awesome!
Starting a new drop for this when the last orders haven't shipped yet? Seems irresponsible.
Got my Kettle last week and I really like the features, but I'm curious - Is it supposed to be so loud? When it's heating it sounds like a small jet engine. I can certainly live with it, but in all the reviews I've seen no one ever mentioned it being noisy.
The blessed thing finally shipped on Nov 29, almost 2 weeks after the estimated ship date. Would've been nice to get some explanation for the late shipping, and an updated estimated ship date. But at least it's on its way. I have 3 of the 1-litre tea kettles. I look forward to the larger size performing just as well.
Any word on when this will ship? The estimated ship date was yesterday.

And today I got this email:
> Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated > ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be > delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know. > If you would prefer to cancel your order, please contact Community Support using the > “Contact Support” button on your transactions page and our Community Support Team > will be able to help cancel your order up until it is ready for shipment.
So an acknowledgement of the delay, but no actual information. As a famous philosopher once said: "Oh well."

Nice of them to start a drop for the 1L while being backed up on this drop. -_-
I have the 1L version of this kettle and it's absolutely killer (I do wish I got the 1.7L though). Never missed a beat through probably 200L of water (if not more) used for coffee and tea throughout the whole range.
Also a secret tip if you like absinthe. Fill the kettle with cold water and ice, then turn it on. It will read the temp and begin to boil. IMMEDIATELY lift the kettle so it stops heating. The temp will continue to display all the way down to 0C! Once you're in the <2C range you can pour directly from the kettle to your drinks and form a fantastic louche. Really great way to do it. DO NOT heat the kettle after this though. When you're finished making absinthe drain the kettle and leave it to dry. Once it's roughly tapwater temp on the inside bottom you can put more water in it and heat it up as usual.
I freaking love this kettle. Got it the last drop as 1L. Life-affirmingly awesome product for anyone who enjoys tea or coffee. I mean I love my little kettle on the stove top but this is just too goood. Never turning back. I guess they could come out with an enamel coated version but whatever, I'm cool with stainless steel.
ALSO, I just want to remind (and advise) people to use filtered water when doing any of this. Boiling tap water, which most all is hard water, will cause the denser minerals to precipitate out over time. You'll get more residue leftover in your kettle over time and, since the gooseneck spout is receiving water from the base of the kettle, you will most likely get the hard water precipitate in your drinks.
Anyhow, use filtered water and make your kidneys happier.
Sitting here wondering why Massdrop doesn't just do both 1L and 1.7L as options in a single drop. I mean I'd use this mostly for tea, and single cups at that, so I'd definitely rather save the dosh and get the 1L.
Please add a 220v option QQ
Salaaran
I don't think it's going to happen, they haven't responded to request for months.
Fuzz
I don't have my hopes up, but it would still be nice to pick one 220V version up.
Wasn't this just 54.99 in the last drop maybe a month ago?
nismo270r
That was the 1L version.
JaneB
That's right, thanks! Looks like they've replaced the flip top lids on the 1.7L. This changes everything!
No 220V option? Please drop the 220V option!
Oh my God, this is the drop that I'm waiting for ! Oh wait, no options for 220V?
In case anyone was curious - got an email saying it shipped. Hope the quality is high.
@massdrop: I thought this one was supposed to be on drop again, as of yesterday? Any idea when the drop will now take place?
