It is been a while since our last coffee equipment review, in fact too much time! So, to all coffee enthusiasts out there, here is another review for you, this time the Timemore Fish Electric Kettle Review.
In recent years, Timemore is gaining some reputation in the manual brewing market, so we and the guys from abcoffee decided to give a try to their electric kettle.
If there is one thing Timemore is known for, it is for the elegant design of its products. So, unsurprisingly, when it comes to aesthetics, the Timemore Fish Electric Kettle is no doubt more stylish than most traditional kettles. Like other Timemore products, this pour-over kettle has a minimalist design with a matte black finish. As an alternative to the matte black finish, which was the version we tested, there is also a white version available on the market. Both colors had a copper finish at the end of the handle, that in our opinion adds a stylish element to the design.
The base of the Timemore Electric Kettle it's very simple and compact. In the base you don't have any buttons or dial knobs on the control panel. The touch-responsive buttons are hidden under the surface. When you touch the right top corner of the base, the bright and clear LED display will light up. You can see the readout of the current and desired temperature.
Instead of using the button or rotation dial, Timemore Electric Kettle uses a slider panel on the base. Swipe your finger left or right on the bar, and you can decrease or increase the desired temperature. Although this looks like a nice alternative to buttons or rotation dial, for us it is not very practical. By swiping from left to right the temperature will only change 5 ºC, which means that every time you want to make a considerable change in the temperature you will have to run your finger several times over the slider panel.
The kettle is made of durable 304 food-grade stainless steel, the interior of the chamber is shiny and well polished. The lid is very well made and easy to put on and off. Despite the build quality is not as premium as the more expensive kettles on the market, you can feel that everything is well designed and thoughtfully considered.
The pouring experience of the Timemore Fish Electric Kettle is something that we really enjoy. Thanks to their patented gooseneck spout and the steady water filtration structure, you will have a stable flow during the pouring process. In addition, the sharp shape ensures the 90-degree steady vertical water flow, makes it easier for beginners to master the pouring for better extraction.
Timemore Electric Kettle has a great pouring performance, being as good as the more expensive models on the market like the Fellow Stag EKG.
Although we really enjoy using this kettle there are a few drawbacks that we really need to point out. First, the small capacity of this kettle (600 ml) could be a drawback for some people. And the second problem is that the temperature is only displayed in Celsius, without the option for switching to Fahrenheit.
