Topic: Ibis Kettle (7 msgs / 148 lines)
1) From: Terry
I am considering gettting this for my wife.  She loves tea and drinks a lot of it.  As an added bonus I can use it for my French Press, but of course it is a gift completely for her.  Anyone have experience with this device?

2) From: Ken Schillinger
I just switched from my trusty Krups drip machine to an Ibis and filter 
cone. The Ibis is working really great. My wife is a tea drinker and takes 
two cups of tea to work in a vacuum bottle, I make coffee one cup at a time. 
I am able to heat water to preheat the VB, then heat more to make the tea 
(the temp is perfect for tea and coffee). The Ibis is well worth the price: 
if I had it do over I'd still buy the Ibis.
Ken, 100% satisfied..

We've got two - the one that comes free from its base we use at home 
and the smaller one with the cord is part of my 'CoffeeWorld' travel kit.

The Bodum Ibis kettles work great coming to a boil then turning off. If you
want hot water on demand anytime without waiting look at Zojirushi.

I use the 27oz one in my office for a little 6-cup (3-cup) Chemex. It  
works great, and I use filtered water and haven't noticed any buildup  
on the coil.

6) From: Bruce Garley
I like kettles that let you set the temp you need.
My favorite kettle has a dial to set the temp anywhere from boiling to about
170F. First saw this kind of kettle at a SuperStore in Winnipeg, but could
not find one in the US and they no longer carry it. On the internet everyone
seemed to carry the same old stuff like Ibis (probably because it's good).
But I needed something to brew temp sensitive green and white teas. Finally
found a similar stainless steel kettle at an online tea company located in
Fresno. Temperature is not highly controllable, and may vary some depending
on the amount of water used, but is a lot better than nothing, and it works
great with the Aeropress where recommended water temp is less than boiling.
If anyone knows of another source for these kinds of kettles, please let me
know. 
Thanks, B.

I have the regular Ibis at home and the mini-Ibis for travel. Consumer  
Reports top-rated the Ibis. I was a little skeptical of the plastic  
construction, as the kettle I was replacing was a stainless Cuisinart  
(which in turn replaced an equally-sturdy-looking Russell Hobbs--both  
of which failed within two years of purchase). I have had the Ibis for  
five years and the mini for three.  Both are very fast (the regular  
Ibis almost frighteningly so).  The plastic is no problem at all. The  
regular Ibis has a stainless steel heating element, which has stayed  
perfectly shiny and non-corroded (I was leery of the heating element  
being in the kettle itself instead of sealed into the base the way it  
is in the stainless Hobbs or Cuisinart, but it has been no problem at  
all).  The mini's element is aluminum, and the circuitry is all in  
one--it plugs into the wall outlet instead of detaching from the  
plugged-in base a la the regular Ibis; but even that's not a problem.   
Only drawbacks are with the Mini--the too-short cord and the need to  
grip the handle fairly low to avoid being scalded by steam.
