Gooseneck kettles are not only elegant and beautiful — they also give you better control while pouring so the water can be evenly distributed over coffee grounds, loose tea leaves, oats, and more. When shopping for the best gooseneck kettles, there are a few main things to consider.
First, you'll want to decide whether you prefer an electric kettle that comes with its own heating plate or a stovetop model. The former is a dependable option if you don't have a full kitchen to work with, but if you go with the latter, you'll want to make sure it's designed to be compatible with your particular stovetop. If convenience is your top priority, a variable temperature kettle goes one step further than the more basic electric models, offering additional perks like autostart and digital temperature presets.
Whichever type of kettle you opt for, you'll want to make sure it's easy to pour. My picks below all feature ergonomic handles that remain cool to the touch, plus well-designed spouts that provide a steady flow of water, according to reviewers.
