Monarch Methods Gooseneck Kettle

I’m starting to think my fondness for gooseneck kettles is turning into full-blown addiction—and I’m okay with it. The Canadian-made Monarch Methods pour over kettle is among the more unique ones I’ve seen, with its copper construction and handle-less design. You grip it by the tanned harness leather insulator rather than an external handle, giving you better control over the pour. The…

Fino Pour Over Kettle

We love a good kettle here at Tools & Toys—particularly the gooseneck variety—and this stainless steel Fino Pour Over Kettle fits the bill nicely. Nothing fancy about it really, just quality Japanese design and craftsmanship. I like that it’s so compact compared to other kettles. My only quibble is that it doesn’t whistle when the water’s boiling, but the lid does bobble…

When it comes to kettles, you’ll have to pry the Bonavita variable temp gooseneck out of my cold, dead hands—but I must admit, this Japanese-imported Takahiro kettle has a certain classic appeal to it.

If you still haven’t made the jump though, you should know that it’s now more affordable than ever, currently (as of 7/7/14) priced at $63 on Amazon, down from $90. We don’t know if this is…

Bonavita Variable Temp Gooseneck Kettle

We’ve mentioned the standard Bonavita Gooseneck Kettle ($42) before, but the kinds of coffee nerds who experiment with AeroPress recipes are likely to want very precise temperature control. And that’s exactly what the Bonavita Variable Temperature model ($90) brings to the mix. It rocks the same 1-liter stainless steel design and distinct spout that allows for greater pour control, with the addition…

Teas, Etc. 3-Piece Travel Mug Set

Now that the weather had cooled off here in the South, I’m back to drinking loose leaf tea throughout the day. While my particular setup isn’t for sale anymore, this 3-Piece Travel Mug Set is very similar. The Double-walled, BPA-free plastic mug keeps tea warm, and the removable, screw-on stainless steel strainer keeps loose tea in bottle, and out of the way.…
