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.

Perfect.

I purchased the "same" kettle from Amazon - and it turned out to be the Chinese made version which they claim is equivalent to the Japanese made version. However, after 4 months, it began to rust. I returned it and ordered the real deal from here - and you can FEEL the difference in quality and construction. I am confident that this is kettle that will last me quite some time.

Exactly as shown and described

This lovely little kettle is doing exactly what Prima Coffee said it would do. It works perfectly for the poor over. I very much like that it does NOT whistle, but the lid rattles delicately when the water has boiled. Hario recommends that water not be left sitting in it, which is too bad, but it will certainly make it last longer.

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.

THE PERFECT KETTLE!

I bought this kettle about a month ago and absolutely love it! It is almost impossible these days to find a kettle that pours properly, by which I mean that you can control the pouring process, pouring, if you wish, a very thin stream gently and with perfect aim. It also heats the water with exceptional speed.

Does the job

It boils water. It is stainless steel and has a pleasing shape. The long spout allows a good, smooth pour-over. My only complaint is with my lack of homework. It's metric at 1.2 litres. That's about 32 oz comfortably. The Chemex I bought is 8 cups, so it's a little short. Hario gets a thumbs up. Prima was easy to deal with. Packaging and shipping speed was top notch.

Hario Kettle

I don't typically write reviews, but the ordering process was so easy with Prima that I'm doing it anyway. They price-matched this item and had free shipping over a certain dollar amount so it was a no-brainer to order here. The site is easy to use and I will definitely come back to shop again. Now, the kettle... This seems to be the go-to kettle for pour over and I see why. Great control and quality seems good. I have this paired with a Bee House Ceramic and Hario server. Great combo. The kettle boils fast enough and holds enough water to easily do a 10 oz. single-serve. I start a second kettle while drinking my first mug and by the time I'm done drinking, the second kettle is ready to start the next pout over. This is for home use. In a commercial setting I'm sure you'd have a faster hot water source and only use this for the pour. I have no indication this kettle won't hold up. As long as it does, I love it. Great design and function. Just know it's not a 'large' kettle so it only holds so much, but for pour overs you're only making a 10 oz serving so it's a non-issue. Time to go make another...

I purchased my v60 a year ago but decided to wait to purchase a gooseneck kettle. My coffee tastes significantly better now that I bought this kettle, I have so much more control over the pour. I have no other kettles to compare it to but so far I am very pleased with my purchase.

Hario Buono Kettle

Perfect for one person; enables one to pour at a very precise flow...if the kettle was any larger, the weight (of the contained water) would be an issue for a prolonged, continuous pour of approximately 4 minutes...

I've been using my Hario V60 now for about two weeks and absolutely love it. In combination with my Kalita 158 it's magic to behold. Very easy on my ceramic stove top, very easy to pour, just makes pour over coffee brewing so much easier. I'm extremely satisfied with my products and with PRIMA COFFEE.

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!

If you enjoy pour over coffee, or a nice cup of tea, you will enjoy this kettle. Very good craftsmanship plus a handsome design make this a solid choice among gooseneck kettles. If you don't abuse it, this is a piece of equipment you should have for a very long time. As the old saying goes..."Buy something of quality and you only buy it once."

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.

Hario V60 Buono Kettle - Cute

We purchased because we are getting better at pour over coffee. The day before it arrived our electric kettle broke. After using this a week, we decided not to buy a replacement electric kettle. The smaller size means the water heats up quickly for a cup of tea or coffee. It pours very nicely.

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!)

Elegant and simple

My favorite two features of any product design. Nothing I hate more than a surfeit of bells and whistles--which generally mean more clutter and less reliability. If you feel the same, this is the kettle for you. We use it for drinking mate at home, Argentinian-style: water in kettle on the stove, kept at a steady correct temp. Also used as intended for slow pour-over coffee. All great.

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.

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.

AWESOME KETTLE. It was my first kettle ever. It drastically improved my pour overs. It's helped me create amazing cups with the controlled pour. It also holds a hefty amount and stays warm. It also looks really nice. Only thing I would say is if the flow was a tad slower, I think it would be PERFECT. Thanks HARIO!

Industry Standard

As a coffee professional who uses these kettles on a daily basis, I've become very familiar with them. There are lots of things to love about this kettle, but here are the three that I think are most important: 1) The flow rate on these kettles is great. When crafting hand-brewed coffee, this is critical. The Hario kettle is very easy to control, and that allows you to be confident and consistent in your pours. 2) The kettle has great heat retention. Once the kettle is warmed up, you can be confident that the temperature will remain stable throughout the pour. 3) For those looking to use these kettles in a shop setting there is one little detail that constantly blows me away. At our shop we weigh all of our water before hand into these kettles. We have five of them, and they are all within a few tenths of an ounce in weight. This means that when weighing out water for multiple coffees at one time, we don't have to tare out the scale every time we put a different kettle on. This is a tiny, but incredibly important detail for those who work in busy shop settings. Overall, this kettle is a great performer at a great price.

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 my continuing quest for the perfectly brewed cup of coffee I purchased the Hario V60 Buono Kettle and now, may even be closing in on the end of my quest. Now, if I find the perfect coffee I will only be left finding the perfect filter, paper and cup. Hoping to have this all together so I can bring it with me to the home.

Im just getting into the pour over coffee method, so I'm still a bit of a novice. But the Hario V60 Buono Kettle has has delivered the hot water. It's balanced and easy to maintain a steady even pour. I don't know what the handle is made of, but it doesn't get so hot that I can't hold it. Plus, the classic design of kettle looks nice sitting on the stove. Overall, I'm very happy.

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!

Great kettle, but there are cheaper options.

I don't know of a kettle that works as well as this pour over kettle and has the same build quality. Bonavita has a kettle that performs just as well, but it has thinner metal and the seems don't seam to have as much integrity as the Hario; it is however $24.01 cheaper. Many people, including myself, refrain from boiling water in this type of kettle. This kettle is meant purely for utilizing the pour over technique. If you boil the water in this type of pot you have to wait for it to cool to 195-205F. If you boil the water in a separate kettle it will cool down from 212F to 195-205F just by pouring it into the pour over kettle. Boiling the water in a pour over kettle will lead to degradation of the pot. The Hario will hold up better than the Bonavita, but I don't believe it will hold up long enough to compensate for the $24.01 price difference. It is also possible that the Hario can retain heat better than the Bonavita due to it's superior craftsmanship, but I don't believe there would be enough of a difference to effect the temperature enough to affect the coffee in a negative way. I would recommend buying the Bonavita and using a separate vessel to boil the water in. The Hario is hands down a better constructed kettle than the Bonavita, but I don't believe the price point is worth it. The Hario kettle is made in Japan by a Japanese company. Bonavita is based in the U.S. I wish I could say that the Bonavita was made in the U.S.A., but unfortunately they outsource the production. I would take some solace in the fact that you are leaving a somewhat smaller carbon footprint and helping out your fellow American; I do wish they contributed more on the manufacturing side of things. If you decide to get the Hario kettle rest assured that it is of the highest quality. If you would like a cheaper and almost as good option from a U.S. based company, buy the Bonavita.

An absolute must for pourovers

We use this kettle daily. Love the pouring control/precision it offers and brilliant design allowing to pour ALL water out without inverting the kettle.

Kettle

Although Prima was fast and communications were good doesn't excuse the fact that I ordered a 40.5 oz. kettle and received twice a 30 oz. kettle. Measurements were by a Mr. Coffee 20 oz. French press which the kettle held one and less than a half of the second.

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!
