I am an admirer of Chemex products
I have owned a Chemex coffee pot for close to forty years; the coffee pot is elegantly designed and I get great reviews on my coffee. I had wanted the Chemex kettle for many years, but it seemed to disappear from sight. When I saw it at Sur La Table, I knew I had to have it. It works like an ordinary kettle, but its looks are nothing like an ordinary kettle--it's a marvelous addition to my kitchen and I don't need a hot pad to pour water. Be sure to get the metal grid to prevent putting the kettle directly on an electric range. Enjoy

"Very good, but..."
... best on a gas burner. I expect heating time on an induction disk or electric coil (with the required wire grid in place) would be significantly lengthened.
Glass ""handle"" will get too hot to touch without a hot pad if kettle is left to simmer, and be careful not to let your arm or hand stray over the vent tube inserted in the handle.
I have excellent well water, but I think cleaning might be difficult in some locales as reaching all inside surfaces with a bottle brush looks to be a challenge.
Overall, this kettle works very well for my needs and preferences (adequate capacity, easy to see that it's clean, and no annoying whistle!).
If you like the looks of the Chemex coffee maker - as I do - you'll probably like the looks of this kettle too

"A work of Art, a must have for Chemex Completest"
It looks beautiful and it also may look big but even full this provides a great pour for your Chemex without fatigue.

I bought the electric stove wire and used this on high with an electric coil stove. Took about 15 minutes to boil the full contents but I needed most of it to flush the filter and brew 8 cups (40 ounces).

I could find no other kettle that would make enough water to do the Chemex method properly for a full 8 cups.

The neck was only warm thanks to the cool design and stopper. It was easily gripped and the balance is pretty nice so you don't get tired and can do a pretty steady and proper pour with very little practice. I match the pour against those bottom feed specialty kettles and this is clean glass so I'm glad I went this route.

If you can afford it (I really couldn't!!) you really have to have this to go along with the Chemex experience

I love it
I do. i really do love it. We have a gas range so no need for extra doodad-addons, but the neck gets too hot to handle.I think it's' beautiful;my partner thinks it looks too science-y which is what i think is beautiful. the silicon stopper is kinda meh and beware of steam burning your hand out of the top. Overall, I am really glad I bought it and have no regrets

After being uninspired by other kettles, and since I own a Chemex coffee maker, this was the natural- and elegantly beautiful- choice.

Does this work on all stovetops? I have a glass top stove.
Laura F on Oct 30, 2014
Best Answer: The short answer is I don't know - I have a gas stove. However, it is a wonderful piece of equipment - the design allows the water to heat faster than in a microwave. I fill it (from a Brita) the night before so the water is room temperature, start the burner on low, and use that wire grid contraption that is sometimes sold with it (probably available at your hardware store) to increase the distance from the heat. I have left it on the stove several times unattended long after the water evaporated and the kettle broke only when I tried to wash it before it cooled thoroughly. I don't advise repeating this, but mention it only to indicate how sturdy it is.

Can you use this safely on a gas cooktop?
Janet H on Oct 22, 2015
Best Answer: I'm on my second water kettle - broke the first one only after leaving it on a gas burner for all the water to boil away. Even with that, it only broke because I didn't let it cool down long enough before rinsing it. It's a terrific product and I will buy a third one if I have to. I use a wire grid under it and don't turn the gas up all the way now, but only as a precaution. The water boils very quickly due to the design. Enjoy!

Can this kettle be used on an induction cook top?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
Best Answer: Per the Chemex website yes, you can use it on an induction cook top: "The Handblown water kettle may be placed directly on a gas flame, glass top or ceramic top stove. For use on an electric stove top please use our wire grid (TKG) to safely boil water."

what is minimum that can be used... a cup OK?
Glenda D on Dec 1, 2015
Best Answer: a cup or less is fine, but don't step away as it heats water very quickly... also if small amounts are all you will normally be boiling, I'm not sure I would bother with such a large vessel. That said, I usually fill it to capacity and am very pleased with it.
