that, i don't seem to mind it but you do have to watch out obviously for that hot chrome part that is part of the kettle gets very hot. It's got a nice feel to it. It's a stainless steel kettle with a powder coated finish. You've got your nice insulated lid on the top as well. It's a 900ml kettle so quite a decent size for you to actually do a few brews if you need to and there are a couple of really cool features that allow you to control your temperatures a little bit better. So the actual base has a PID controller in there which allows you to dial in exactly the temperature that you want to. On the back of the unit here it actually has a hold function and you can do that manually and that's going to lock that temperature in for an hour.
On the other side you can pick celsius or fahrenheit, so pretty easy controls and on the front you've got basically a turn dial to increase or decrease your temperature that you want to be set at. If you press and hold this it will actually activate a timer. If you're doing a little bit of a pour over or some other device and you don't have a timer that can start counting for you.
So in Australia the unit does have a one year warranty and it does sit in the higher range of electronic control pour over kettles. So it's around the $249
