Best Gooseneck Kettle With Thermometer for Stovetop
Coffee Gator Pour Over Coffee Kettle
This gooseneck kettle from Coffee Gator gives you perfect results on all stovetops. It works on gas, electric and induction cooktops (to read about portable single induction cookers, click here). The built-in thermometer makes sure you get the correct temperature every time for perfect coffee.
This kettle is made from medical-grade stainless steel with a cool-touch handle. The spout is a special design and gives a smooth water flow. This Coffee Gator pour over kettle features a double layer metal base. It is high quality and will remain rust-free for years to come.
Any tips for using it on a gas stove?
Some people recommend using a diffuser on gas stoves. This is the same for all kettles and espresso makers. The heat diffuser helps to stop the flames damaging the handle and spout of your kettle. If you have a small burner on your gas stovetop then your kettle should be fine without using a diffuser. But, if you need a diffuser they are only a few dollars to buy and you can order one online. They make all the difference when using a kettle on a gas stovetop.
The Coffee Gator kettle comes in a 1 liter or 1.2 liter capacity. The manufacturer recommends only filling the 1 liter kettle to about 0.6 liter to avoid overspilling. Similarly, the manufacturer recommends you only fill the 1.2 liter kettle up to the 1 liter level to avoid overflow. Take this into account when you make your buying decision. You may need the larger size. And it’s almost the same price as the smaller version.
This Coffee Gator kettle is currently selling with a free Coffee Hacks eBook. Be sure to order your kettle now with the free book included.

If you’re wanting the best electric pour over kettle for convenience and you’re concerned about it being fully stainless steel for your health, this is the best gooseneck kettle for you.
This Osaka is the best gooseneck kettle with a fully stainless steel interior. But, I should mention…there is one tiny piece of plastic protruding into the interior of the kettle and this is at the top where the steam release is located.
This tiny bit of plastic is not in direct contact with the water in the kettle. Obviously it is still internal where the steam collects and could result in condensation back into the water.

Just one note of warning about this kettle. Some people have used this on their gas stove without having a small burner to place it on. If you do this you’ll damage the surface, handle and spout. This is the same with all gooseneck kettles. If you don’t have a small burner on your gas stovetop I recommend purchasing a diffuser so the flames don’t damage your kettle. A heat diffuser is only a few dollars but will give you peace of mind when using smaller pots or a kettle on your stove.
