Elegant Quality Kettle

Easily the best kettle out there. Very elegant in its design and feels very high quality in the materials. Best part is the kettle boils quickly! Would buy it again.
Functional with great aesthetic

The feel of the material was great when we got the kettle. Looks and feel durable. Water boils fast and easy to use. The size was just what we need to be minimal on our counter.
I LOVE THE LOOK AND THE FUNCTION OF THE BALMUDA KETTLE.

I replaced my whistling tea kettle that I have had for years for The Balmuda. I love it! I plug it in and it heats up the water so quickly. I don't worry about not turning the gas stove off. The Balmuda shuts off automatically. I love the look of the kettle on my counter and the simple pour. Thank You, Balmuda!

I’ve had many kettles……none like this one! Spout pours perfectly and it’s so easy to control. The kettle is the perfect size for my single or double pour over. Great product! What else can I say!

I’m incredibly pleased with my Balmuda Kettle! It heats up very quickly, the build and finish are impeccable, its extremely light, and most importantly, it pours perfectly because it feels so well balanced in my hand. [...] My Balmuda has really improved my pour over technique!
I wanted to have a more enjoyable experience in the kitchen. I had many thoughts of how to achieve this, which led me to the creation of BALMUDA The Kettle.

It's the experience that counts
Two years ago, I bought a cookbook by the chef of Restaurant Omiya in Asakusa, Tokyo. It soon occurred to me that if all I wanted was to eat the chef’s cooking, it would have been faster to just go to the restaurant.
So why buy the book? Because I imagined making the same Japanese Hamburg steak (or Hambagu) myself at home, and seeing my children enjoy it. I realized that I bought the book not for the meal, but for the experience of cooking the meal for my family at home.
A wonderful breakfast
My previous cookbook experience laid the foundation for BALMUDA The Toaster, with a focus on “experiences over things”. Believe me, this toaster sees heavy use at my house too. Because the toast it makes is so delicious, I started making bacon and eggs in a cast-iron frying pan to go with it. This, in turn, made breakfast a more enjoyable experience than ever. It was only natural that I’d eventually start wishing for perfectly brewed coffee, as well.
Coffee, tea, soup
One day, I decided I wanted to master the art of pour-over coffee. After my first few practice sessions, I was sure of one thing: existing kettles (traditional or electric) were difficult to use. I wondered what sort of nozzle and handle would provide the best pouring experience? After countless prototypes and discussions with baristas, BALMUDA The Kettle took on its current form. Brewing pour-over coffee is now a soothing ritual in itself.
The kettle is also ideal for more casual occasions when boiling water is needed -- from pots of tea to instant noodles. Whether in the kitchen or at the dining table, BALMUDA The Kettle delivers a natural and enjoyable experience.
