My wife thinks I'm nuts for buying this electric kettle, but I think it is great. I'm a tea drinker so I have no idea about pour over coffee.

The Fellow kettle is designed for pour over coffee, which is best when you have the right water temperature and rate of pour.  I don't know if brewing tea benefits from the same precision.  Regardless of whether you need it,  if you want the Fellow kettle go for it.  It will add to the enjoyment of your tea ritual.

Fellow makes nice products.  I use one of its stainless steel vacuum containers to store coffee beans for my daily espresso.

I was very close to buying the Stagg short-spout kettle just like that - but the reviews were a bit middling and I couldn’t take the plunge. Would love to hear your long-term review. It’s a really great design.

I have been using one daily for three or four years now to make pour over coffee and I couldn't live without it. It heats extremely quick and the built in timer is very useful as well. One of my favorite things in general about electric kettles is the ability to turn them on and walk away with no need to baby sit it.

Hmm, how does it outperform a Pyrex on the stove burner?

+1 I bought it when it was first available for pre-order. I have used it daily with no issues. The pour will be a bit slow for tea, as stated earlier, but it’s great for getting to and holding your desired temperature.

The Fellow Corvo would be the right choice for tea:

If you’re strictly speaking from a just get the job done perspective there is no difference. It’s purely a creature comfort. Something like you can remove a nut or a bolt with a box end wrench, but using a socket wrench make the job a whole lot easier and more enjoyable.

I think that is the best bet for tea. I wish they would sell just the kettle so I could have both and use my existing base.

Jack, the Fellow Corvo looks like the ideal kettle for tea.  It has all the features of the Stagg but without the long spout, which you don't need for tea.

Ok, that's what I had guessed.  Thanks
