There’s a reason this beautiful kettle has become a classic. It looks fantastic and allows for absolute control when pouring. I make some of my best tasting pour overs using this kettle. And the internal surfaces are beautifully finished with no seams or cracks; allowing the kettle to dry completely in a short period of time. This prevents rusting and bacteria. Well worth the cost.
The design of this kettle is just elegant and delicate. Arrived soon after order placed. Works great for pour over coffee at home!
Extraordinarily smooth and controlled pouring experience, just makes morning slow coffee that much better.
It's so simple but elegant.
Compared to the Tsukiusagi enamel pot it provides an even more smooth pour, and really the 0.5L holds about as much water as the Tsukiusagi 0.7L (due to the shape it tends to boil over).
On the other hand, the Takahiro lid falls off easier than the Tsukiusagi lid does but this is only if you really really tip the pot forward.
Since the Takahiro is made with metal, the handle becomes much hotter to the touch, but the pot is much more resistant to damage.
I honestly can't choose between the two, so I'm glad that I have both now :)
Since each is handmade, I wasn't too surprised when mine came with a very slightly deviated handle, in fact it only made the kettle that much more special for me.
Arrived quickly and reliably via DHL.
This little kettle arrived in a very timely matter and upon opening the box I was of course not surprised because all of my purchases from Kurasu have been exceptional . Today, I made the perfect cup of coffee and the spout makes all the difference with approah and pouing. The kettle is high quality stainless and a very elegant addition. I love it, need I say more.
