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
Beautiful Kettle
This unexpected kettle adds an elegant touch to my stove. It works perfectly to boil water. While I was concerned it might be breakable, the carafe is very sturdy. I also thought the glass would be thicker and heavier, but actually is thin. Be sure to get the metal grate if you plan on using this with an electric stove.

Best Tea Kettle ever used!
Patricia N on Apr 16, 2015
Capacity is greater than my Hario kettle so this kettle should work out perfectly for my 10-cup Chemex coffee carafe. Coffee brewed w/the Chemex is beyond superb. It is a perfect cup of Java.

christine s on Jul 28, 2014
Have a Chemex coffee maker already, and it has really good glass quality. Tried some other cheaper glass kettles but their handle broke easily under heat. Chemex design seems to avoid that kind of problem.

Veronica G on Dec 13, 2017
Does this work on all stovetops? I have a glass top stove.
Laura F on Oct 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work on a glass top electric. It will not work on an induction burner. If it is an electric coil, the wire grid is necessary... hope that helps.
Can you use this safely on a gas cooktop?
Janet H on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You need to be careful about how high you turn up the burner; you want the flame of the burner underneath the kettle, not coming up the sides (or it will burn your hands when you try to take it off the stove). If you leave it too long on the burner, you will need a potholder or towel to remove it. But if used correctly, you can grab it with your bare hand off the stove without a problem.
Can this kettle be used on an induction cook top?
A shopper on Dec 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not certain that it will work on an induction cooktop. Chemex sells a stainless steel wire accessory that can be used on electric cooktops, but it is ambiguous as to whether it can be used on induction cooktops. Although I imagine that it doesn't help much, this kettle is one of the most beautiful and utilitarian kitchen pieces that I've ever purchased.
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.
Is it easy to pour a controlled amount of water for a pour over?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I had the same concern before I purchased my kettle.(I use mine with a 10 cup Chemex coffee-maker.) There is a very small learning curve,but after the second or third time,it's very easy to control the flow. Almost second nature,with or without a scale!
Hope it helps. I've had mine for a couple of years and if it breaks, I'll buy another in a NY minute!
