We have been playing with the Chettle for a couple days now and are loving it!
It is almost a piece of art as well as a water boiler! A bit pricey but an awesome device and addition to any coffee or tea lovers counter.
Induction heating is very neat, no heating coils. You will hear a bit of fan noise (not very loud) from the base but there is no direct connection to the kettle, the kettle just sits nicely on the base and almost magically heats up. The big perk of induction heating besides working like magic, is its precise control over temperature, the Chettle will accurately hit the precise temp you set it to giving full control over the brew.
Notice the funky spout? This goose neck spout is on almost all nice coffee kettles, really lets you control water dispersion making sure you get all the grounds with never risking splash back!
