The Hario Buono Kettle is one of the most popular pour over brewing kettles around and for good reason. The Hario Buono has a large capacity (1.2 liters / 40.5 ounces or 1.0 liters / 33.8 ounces) and is more affordable than most pouring kettles.

Features:

  • Durable stainless steel
  • Flat bottom for use on stoves
  • 1200- or 1000-ml (40.5- or 33.8-ounce) capacity
  • Low-mounted spout for an easier, more comfortable pour
  • Made in Japan
  • Electric version also available

Hario

Originally known primarily as a company that produces glass products, Hario (also known as Hario Glass) has been working to produce high quality coffee and tea products since 1921. Over the past few years, Hario has become known as the coffee industry leader in pour over brewing equipment. Hario has helped bring about a coffee renaissance in the U.S. by creating ingeniously designed coffee brewing and grinding products that are being used by cafes and home coffee connoisseurs alike for by-the-cup coffee brewing. The design and methods behind Hario's brewing devices have helped to insure that specialty coffee is being brewed with the craft that it deserves.
Hario V60 Buono Kettle is rated 4.693548387096774 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong, light, and durable I have owned the Hario Buono for nearly a year and use it every day. At first look and feel, it seems too light to be very durable. However, it stands up well to the test of time! I heat water directly in the kettle on a gas range and have yet to notice wear or damage on the kettle's base. The heat retention is another plus. The flow rate can be a bit fast if you are new to the precision required for pour overs (I was when I got the kettle), but is easy to control with a little practice. A strong, light kettle at a decent price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I bought this kettle several months ago and use it every morning. It is very well constructed and durable. It is not heavy whatsoever and is the perfect size for heating enough water for a single cup or a few cups of coffee. Based on the outstanding craftsmanship of this kettle in addition to its weight and size, I would most definitely recommend this brand to anyone looking for a gooseneck kettle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aesthetic king! I bought this kettle about a month ago and have been totally stoked to have/use it! I'm new to pour over brewing but as far as I can tell from watching friends that have other kettles, the flow rate on the Hario is as good or better than the kettles they were using. Plus it looks and feels AWESOME! My only regret is that I didn't just buy the 1.3L kettle instead of the 1L kettle. The reason being that I have run out of water on one or two pours when I thought I had filled the kettle plenty full. My wife also drinks tea and it would be nice not to have to use two kettles every morning. (Granted, these later comments are just a bit of a heads up. They're not meant to reflect poorly on the kettle!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and sturdy Our two Buono kettles have been perfect for our small team that operates a coffee truck. We serve Chemex, V60s, and Aeropresses and the gooseneck spout has been nothing less than reliable for great results. Many members of our team have learned to make pour-overs with these kettles - their comfortable handles and easy, but secure, lids lend to a very straight-forward lesson! The kettles are also very hardy. Ours have undergone days of heavy customer traffic, and they've managed to remain unscathed through the stop-and-go traffic between our events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I love my Hario V60 Buono Kettle. It holds much more water that one would think based on its small size. It is light, and easy to store. The handle is heat proof, and built away from the body of the kettle so you don't burn your fingers while pouring. My previous kettles have always been clunky and heavy and I always needed gloves to prevent burns. Because the position of the spout, you barely need to bend your wrist to pour. The only drawback is that because of its small base, it doesn't go on the larger burner, the one that brings water to a boil faster. But it's a small drawback, I just have to wait a bit longer. The lack of whistle is not a problem at all. You can hear the water when it's ready and see the steam come out of the small holes on top of the kettle. All in all, it's a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Kettle for the money The kettle is great, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a good pot for pour over brewing. I especially like the flow control, you only need to pour it once or twice to get a good grip on how it handles. It also keeps the heat well so you don't need to keep reheating it. It also has a solid build. Its hard to find products made to such high standards these days. Some folks complain about the price, but I look at it as an investment because the thing is built like a tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, nimble kettle This kettle does the job for any pour over or other technique that requires a steady accurate flow. It is well priced and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Brewing Kit I bought the home brewing kit last week and it's great! I can now brew my own filter coffee just the way I like. It was delivered to me within 4 days just after I purchased it. They were able to deliver the product to me even though I live overseas! The kettle is necessary for brewing the coffee and works well. I use the weighing scale to measure exactly how much coffee I need, the hand grinder grinds the coffee consistently. Overall, a very satisfied customer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A solid kettle at an affordable price. I purchased my Hario Buono a couple years back along with the V60-02. I soon realized how necessary the kettle really was for flow rate control and precision while pouring. The Buono does a great job at delivering water for pulse pour techniques, but does lack a little in the finesse department compared to some of the more expensive kettles out there. The slow continuous methods are difficult with the Buono, but are not impossible. For those methods requiring a slow and steady pour, turn the kettle halfway on its side. Hold one hand (protected by a dish towel) under the kettle and the other hand on the handle. By tilting it a good deal on its side you are releasing water pressure on the base of the spout. This helps to reduce the sensitivity of the kettle to movement that would otherwise cause water to gush out. Be sure to not tip it too much on its side or you could end up with boiling water coming out of the kettle. With this tip, I have had no issue pouring at a slow trickle for those 8oz cups with the V60. Overall, the build quality is great and the flow rate control is decent. With practice, this good kettle can become an excellent tool for that perfect pourover cup. The kettle does take a bit to heat water on the stove, so it is now competing with the electric kettles from Bonavita. That said, you can't go wrong with a Buono!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful, everything I was looking for! I bought this as a gift for someone who had been having difficulty making pour over coffee using a standard kettle, as it would have a very fast and uneven pour. I have no issues using this over my gas stovetop, no rattling or complications. The kettle boils quickly, has a great design, and delivers a nice, clean, even pour. My only dislike would be the size, i would prefer a kettle larger than 1.2 Liters!!!

In the description it says 1.0 or 1.2 liter but I see no place to select which size you want. Also, I see no specification for the price listed...for $44.50 am I getting the 1.0 or 1.2L?

Asked by: Brock
I had the same question when first purchasing. As I remember, once you select "purchase" you then get a prompt which gives you the choice of the 1.0 or 1.2L. - you will not get the chance to chose UNTIL you take this step. Hope this helps. It's an incredible pot! I've given it as a gift many times and mine is still in great shape after ten plus years.

Hello again. I was looking at the "Brewing Starter's" bundle and was wondering what the difference is between the Buono 1 L and 1.2 L kettles, aside form the obvious slight capacity difference. Why would someone opt for the smaller version in the bundle?

Asked by: Beehive55
There's no other difference. Some people only brew single cups, and the 1.0L is a bit lighter in weight and more compact.

Is the Hario V60 Buono Kettles that you currently have it stock made in Japan or China. It is my understanding that Hario recently decided to move manufacturing of this particular kettle to China, and I really want to purchase one that was made in Japan.

Asked by: Japan
On the kettle itself and on the accompanying pamphlet, it says: 'MADE IN JAPAN' [I really like this kettle as it light weight and heats quickly.]

How to clean this kettle, especially that narrow spout? Also what's the best way to measure temp? Is removing lid to insert thermometer the only way? Instant read or candy thermometer?

Asked by: michelemiz
Because this kettle is stainless steel and the handle is heat resistant, you can actually run it through the dishwasher. If that's not an option you can wash this kettle by hand with soap and water. If you need to clean inside the spout we might recommend finding a small pipe cleaner.
