NEW White Stagg EKG: In stock and ready to ship!

The Stagg EKG is a 900 mL variable temperature kettle that ticks all the right boxes: it looks great, it's fast and accurate, it couldn't be easier to use, and it is a joy to brew with. A powerful 1200 W heating element combined with a smart PID controller means in no time at all you've have precisely heated water at exactly the temperature you wanted. Using the EKG is simple and intuitive: just twist the knob to set your desired temperature, flick a switch for F or C, click the button built into the knob to turn the kettle on or off. A bright LCD display shows your current kettle temp and setpoint, plus features a brew stopwatch timer you can use while pouring. The optional Hold function will keep the kettle at your desired set temperature for up to an hour before going into standby mode. After 15 minutes of standby time, the kettle will automatically shut off.

Like the stovetop Stagg kettle, the EKG features a precision pouring spout and a counter-weighted handle for better pour control. The flow rate from the spout is perfectly good for pour over brewing, but we found it to be slow compared to the Bonavita variable temp kettle, so it may not be ideal for immersion brews or cupping. The kettle and lid are made of 304 stainless steel, and the base and handles are made of plastic. Kettle and base are not dishwasher safe.

The EKG+ model includes built-in Bluetooth to connect to a mobile app, currently available from either Fellow or Acaia. Through the app, you can turn the kettle on and off remotely, set a temperature and hold it for up to an hour, or log your whole brew (Acaia-only). As of May 2018, only iOS devices can connect to the Stagg EKG+, but Android apps are said to be on the way. To set the kettle into Bluetooth mode, first make sure the base unit is plugged in and powered on. Remove the kettle, then hold down the dial button for three seconds. The words "Bluetooth Enabled" or "Bluetooth Disabled" will appear on-screen. Turn the dial left or right to select the desired option, and click the button once to save the setting. Enable the Bluetooth on your mobile device, and you're all set to connect with the app of your choice!

Fellow Stagg EKG+ App

Fellow's own EKG+ app connects directly to your kettle, and offers simple controls for turning the kettle on and off and adjusting temperature. A chime will play when the kettle has reached the set temperature. You can also peruse Fellow's brewing tips as you get ready to make your coffee. Available on iPhone and iPads through the Apple App Store.

Acaia Brewmaster App

Through the Brewmaster app, you can connect simultaneously to a Stagg EKG+, as well as an Acaia Pearl or Lunar scale and a Baratza Sette 270W or 270Wi. With Brewmaster, you can turn your EKG+ on and off remotely, set a temperature, view the Hold status timer, and view the current water temperature in the kettle. Additionally, you can connect to other devices, like a Baratza Sette 270W or 270Wi, plus an Acaia scale, to measure your brews and record the Brew Print to either save for later reference or share with others. Currently, EKG+ support is only available for the iOS version of Brewmaster, available at the Apple App Store.. Android support is expected to be introduced later this year, and the Android app may be downloaded at the Google Play Store.

Sleek and Efficient

After receiving a few flawed early production models replaced (by Prima not Fellow, who were not very helpful) which intermittently failed to activate the boil, I have only very good things to report. First, there are only a handful electric pouring kettles available and I have used two, including one that was the most popular. They appear not to have the same quality build and electronics. The kettle is very nice to look at, works very well and is easy to reprogram temperature (although I have it set for 199 F). It reheats when making a slow pour. It is fairly easy to hold but not as good as some of the better Japanese not electric, which are better balanced and easier to control speed/volume of water poured. Overall I am very pleased and believe the Stagg to be the best electric pour over kettle currently available....and the customer service at Prima is great.

This Kettle Has Changed My Life!

This kettle has exceeded my expectations. It is so simple to operate. You just fill with water, set it on the pad, push a button and turn the dial to your desired temp. 2 minutes later, the water is ready! You need this spout for pour-overs and you might as well splurge and get the electric one! So easy!

Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Variable Temperature Pouring Kettle

This kette is great!!! I use it for pour over coffee and heating water for my hand press espresso. I was totally surprised by how quickly it heats water. I usually put about 16 oz of water in the kettle and it is hot before i finish grinding my beans. Amazing!!!

The Stagg EKG Kettle is a work of art!

It really did surprise us. Who knew there could even *be* a Rolls Royce of drip-coffee-water-heating/pouring devices? For years we‰Ûªd used a noisy, hot-to-the-touch, cumbersome, pathologically spilly electric kettle for our drip, not knowing that life could be so much better. Why can‰Ûªt more things be as well thought-through and designed as the Stagg EKG?

Love this kettle

I have been waiting for a while to order this kettle and it was worth the wait. Heat controls work great and heat up time is fantastic! The only thing that is kind of a pain is trying to fill it on my refrigerator door. Its length is pretty tricky but I am not going to take points away for this.

Awesome

We own a barista school here at El Salvador, and we bought the EKG for getting good stability on the temperature of the water for better extractions, we LOVE the hold bottom, because while we pause for the pouring, we can place the kettle in the base, and it holds the target temp always

Stagg ekg

As a self proclaimed coffee snob I have been waiting for this to hit the market for awhile. 1. It looks cool. 2. It minimizes the amount of coffee stuff on my counter. 3. Works just as described. The pour is very nice and controllable. The handle is comfortable. The temp gauge seems to run four degrees higher than it is programmed for.

Bluetooth Overrated

The kettle itself is amazing, giving a good even pour, solid temperature control, and excellent ergonomics. However, the Bluetooth honestly doesn't do much. In the time it takes you to open the app, wait for it to connect, and then turn the kettle on, you could have walked over. Save a few bucks and get the not EKG model unless you really really feel nerdy.

STAGG EKG

I just got my EKG last week and absolutely love it! I really like the built in timer and the ability to change between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Also how I am able to hold the temperature. The pour control is amazing! The two down sides that I have found are, say you have your temp holding at 200f when you take it off to do your bloom sometimes you have to wait a second before it reaches back up to your hold temp and that's not ideal in the middle of a brew. Also, if you just heated up some water and added some cold water the kettle wont react. You have to turn the kettle off and then on again for it to read that new water has been added. These are two very small things, all and all this is a great kettle and I recommend getting it!!

I‰Ûªm not sure if it‰Ûªs the particular one I have, but water drips down the gooseneck if I‰Ûªm lightly pouring. It‰Ûªs pretty annoying. The kettle looks great though.

Excellent Kettle

I had an issue with the first one that was shipped to me where the led screen was not turning on but was quickly replaced with a new one. It works perfectly fine now. Had for a month now. By far the most advanced kettle around. Love the Scandinavian design with its simple lines and curves. This replaces my Bonavita electric kettle which is still amazing but wanted a more slicker design to match my kitchen decor. My only gripe like the other reviews is the metal ring at the top of the handle gets really hot and you can burn your fingers if you‰Ûªre not aware. I would definitely recommend it to up your pour over coffee game.

Incredible - one complaint

This kettle is awesome. I LOVE how it will hold the temperature and the flow rate control is amazing. Only thing - I wish they had given it a slightly bigger water capacity. It‰Ûªs not quite big enough to do large batch pour overs.

Solid variable temperature kettle

Design is beautiful-- and that is essentially what you're paying for here. Bought this as a gift for my relative who is a coffee connoisseur- his only criticism is that the pot is a bit heavy and makes it difficult to maneuver when doing drip pour.

A very disappointing product masked by a pretty facade

I really wanted to like this product and was super excited for it's release. Unfortunately, the quality is subpar, overall, and the price is not reflective of its quality. I have several issues with the kettle, outlined below: 1. There is a fair amount of plastic on the kettle and base and the plastic feels low quality. The switches on the base feel very cheap. 2. The kettle still reeked of silicone after ~ two weeks of use. 3. The PID is inaccurate and varies from the readout by up to +/- 5'F 4. The flow rate is very slow, and brewing anything other than pour over coffee takes annoyingly long. 5. For the EKG+ kettle, the bluetooth is only compatible with a tablet app, not a phone app. 6. The brew timer is only accessible with the kettle on the base, which is a huge design flaw IMO. On the positive side, the kettle does pour pretty well, but this is at the expense of flow rate. I found that it elongated my brew time by about 10%, as compared to a most other popular gooseneck kettles. Overall, this is a very pretty product, and it's obvious that Fellow invested most of it's effort into aesthetics, rather than quality and functionality. Due to the slow flow rate and inaccessibility of the brew timer while using the kettle, brewing anything other than coffee is a tedious process. If this kettle was half the price, I'd be more compelled to overlook these issues, but the quality simply does not justify the price.

Favorite Pour Over Kettle So Far

Seen a good amount of Cons saying that the pour is too slow, but I have no problem with that because the kettle matches my technique perfectly. Smooth initial pour for bloom, then steady pour to finish the brew. Clean and no splashes. I'm assuming you place your thumb on the flat part of the handle and that helped me control my pour a lot better. Tested it on a V60, Chemex, and lower temps for tea. All around a solid kettle.
