Bodum 11883-259US Melior is a gooseneck electric kettle with 27 ounce (0.8 liter) maximum capacity and 1000 watt power supply.
Bodum 11883-259US Melior heats up water very fast. When it’s full it takes 3 to 5 minutes to bring it to boil – much faster than on a stove or microwave.
The larger electric kettles that can hold up to 1.7 liters are typically more powerful and usually have 1500 watt power supply. At full capacity it does take them longer to heat up the water but that’s because they have to heat about twice as much volume. If you actually fill them with 0.8 liters which is the maximum capacity of Bodum they will heat up water faster than the Bodum but it still does it plenty fast.
However the larger kettles don’t have the gooseneck spout which gives you superior water flow and consistency which is vital for situations like when you are making pour over coffee.
Aesthetics is perhaps something some won’t care too much about but many will appreciate an appliance that not only fulfills its tasks successfully but also looks great and work as a piece of decor when not used for its primary purpose.
In this regard Bodum 11883-259US Melior doesn’t disappoint as it’s far more attractive than regular electric kettles. With its matte black finish it’s very elegant looking which is also easy to clean by the way!
Is it the best looking gooseneck kettle? Not really, but that’s also subjective. It also wouldn’t be fair to be compared to models that cost multitude of times more.
Non-slip handle and knob are made of natural and sustainable cork.
Overall Bodum 11883-259US Melior is a fairly but affordable gooseneck electric kettle that works just fine!
