When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed, including the following:

  • Read all instructions.
  • Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  • To protect against fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, do not immerse cord, plugs, base, or kettle in water or other liquid.
  • Never leave the appliance unattended when in use. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
  • Unplug from outlet when not in use, no water in kettle, filling water, moving kettle, and before cleaning. Allow cooling before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
  • Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner. Call our toll-free  Customer Assistance Number for examination, repair, or adjustment.
  • Do not use a base unit other than the one supplied. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may result in fire,  electric shock or injury to persons.
  • Do not use outdoors.Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces. Always store excess portion of the power cord in the compartment of the base unit.
  • Electric kettle must be operated on a flat surface. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven, or on the top of other electric appliances.
  • Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect, turn control to off, then remove plug from wall outlet.
  • Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
  • To avoid circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.
  • Do not fill kettle when positioned on base. Remove all moisture on the bottom of the body before placing it onto the power base.
  • Be aware of steam being emitted from spout or lid especially during refilling. Do not remove lid during boiling cycle.
  • Do not use the kettle to heat anything other than water. Do not fill above the ‘’max’’ indication. If the kettle is overfilled, boiling water may be ejected. The kettle is only to be used with the base unit provided.
  • Do not insert any object into slots or holes of the kettle.
  • Scalding may occur if the lid is removed during the brewing cycles.

WARNING: This appliance utilizes a high wattage relay for arriving at the desired water temperature. In some instances, this relay may cause slight flickering of lights on the same circuit. It is best to use this appliance on a dedicated circuit or with all other appliances off during this appliance’s use. It will not damage electrical systems but caution should be used to not overload this circuit with other appliances running at the same time.





A short power-supply cord is to be provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer detachable power- supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If a longer detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used,

  1. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
  2. The extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and
  3. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be tripped over, snagged, or pulled on unintentionally (especially by children).

This appliance must be grounded while in use.CAUTION: To ensure continued protection against risk of electric shock, connect to properly ground outlets only.


The appliance has a plug that looks like Figure A. An adaptor, as shown in Figure B, should be used for connecting a 3-prong grounding plug to a 2-wire  receptacle. The grounding tab, which extends from the adaptor, must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded receptacle as shown in Figure C, using a metal screw.

When mineral scale builds up in your kettle, it can affect temperature consistency and slow down boil time. If Not descaled regularly, the kettle can stop working accurately. To ensure optimum performance, Bonavita recommends descaling the kettle when mineral build-up is visible inside the kettle.

Note: Vinegar many not effectively descale the kettle and can be difficult to thoroughly rinse. Vinegar may also leave behind an odor that could affect future uses.  Bonavita recommends using Dezcal Descaler.

How to use Decal Descaler:

  1. Fill the kettle with warm water.
  2. Add one packet of Dezcal to kettle.
  3. Bring solution to boil.
  4. Let vessel cool for 15 mins, then discard solution.

Pour over manual brew coffee

Pour over manual brew coffeeThis is the simplest coffee brewing approach. It allows the individual the most control of saturation of the coffee grounds, also the most participation by the user.  It requires more time than hitting the On switch of a drip coffee maker but for many, its higher involvement is part of the pleasure of coffee overall.

Equipment needed:

A. GrinderB. ScaleC. Paper filter, cloth or permanent filterD. Pour over filter basketE. Drinking cup or carafe

Brewing manual pour-over method:

  • Measure about 6 ounces of water for each cup you intend to brew. Place measured water in kettle and turn on kettle to boil the water.
  • Use the Bonavita pour kettle with gooseneck spout, boil the amount of water you desire.
  • Grind two tablespoons of beans per cup of coffee.
  • Rinse the filter cone, filter, and coffee pot (or whatever you are brewing into) in hot water to preheat them.
  • Assemble the filter cone, filter, and vessel and dump the ground coffee into the filter.
  • When the water reaches a boil, take the kettle off the heat source and count about five to fifteen seconds. The desired coffee brewing temperature is 205 °F so slightly lower than boiling temperature.
  • Now pour the water into the filter. Stir the coffee just a bit to be sure it all gets saturated with water. A slow steady pour allows for the best extraction from the grounds.


  • You may have to pour two or three times depending in the grind, filter size, andamount of coffee being made.
  • Pre-wetting the coffee grounds a minute before start pour-over helps extraction.
  • A narrower spout allows better water flow control.
  • Pour-over coffee is usually ground finer than drip coffee maker, but not as fine asespresso. If you are using a Melitta cone (which we recommend) the grind will be more fine than that if you used a flat-bottom filter
