Versatile electric kettle with six preset temperature functions and unique spout design

The Bonavita BV382510V digital electric kettle is versatile and convenient. It offers six preset temperature functions for fast, easy hot-beverage preparation and a unique gooseneck spout, which results in a more controlled pour. Additional features like a count-up timer and swivel base make the Bonavita a great choice whether you are a tea drinker or prefer coffee.

1000 watts of power

In terms of power, the Bonavita has a 1000-watt heating element. This is a little on the low side, but considering the capacity of the kettle, you will still be able to heat up water very quickly. Additionally, the kettle will hold the temperature you selected for up to an hour, so if you don’t use all the water at once, you can pour another cup later and it will still be hot.

1-liter capacity

This kettle holds 1-liter of water, which is just over 4 cups. This is a great size for two people who both drink tea and/or coffee, or for an individual who likes to have the option of a hot beverage throughout the morning work hours.

Six preset temperatures

The Bonavita allows you to choose from six preset temperatures, going up from 140-degrees in 2-degree increments. You get total control over how hot you want the water to be, which is crucial for preparing drinks like green or white tea, which cannot be steeped in too-hot water or they become bitter. The digital display on the kettle will show the temperature within 2-degrees.

Strengths

Count-up timer

If you want to know how much time it takes to reach the temperature you want, the count-up timer makes it easy to find out. It is also useful for timed teas and coffee, when they need to be boiled with the water for a certain length of time.

Unique spout

The most unique feature on the Bonavita BV382510V is probably the gooseneck spout. This spout is designed for superior pouring, so you have always have total control over serving. If a tea needs the water to be poured over the leaves or bag very slowly, you are able to do so.

Cordless kettle

This kettle rests on a 360-degree swivel base, where the cord is located. When you are serving, you lift the kettle off the base and can serve without a cord getting in the way.

Weaknesses

Not super powerful

At 1000 watts, this kettle isn’t extremely powerful. There are other kettles out there with 1500 watts, which means the water will boil much faster. However, because this kettle only holds about 4 cups of water, you don’t need a super high wattage to get a fast boil, so the 1000 watts really isn’t a problem.

A bit pricey

For a kettle this small with lower watts, the Bonavita 1-liter variable temperature kettle is expensive. However, you do get total control over the temperature and there’s that unique gooseneck spout, so for the price, you get quite a few features you can’t find on other kettles.

Overall Review

With six preset temperatures, a digital display, and gooseneck spout, the Bonavita BV382510V 1-liter variable temperature kettle is a great choice if you love having control over the preparation of coffee, tea, and more. It holds about 4 cups of water and heats up quickly with the 1000-watt heating element. The Bonavita is a bit on the pricey side, but it is convenient, fast, and precise.
