A smart kettle? Yes, please!

The Govee smart kettle is a stainless electric gooseneck pour-over model with Wi-Fi and integrated Alexa voice and app controls.

Heat your water to the ideal temperature with the Govee smart kettle

If you haven’t made the switch to an electric smart kettle yet, you’re missing out on brewing the perfect pour-over coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and other drinks that rely on temperature control.

The Govee smart kettle (model H7170) is 100 percent stainless steel and has a stunning matte black finish. We also named it one of the best smart kitchen appliances this year. On the base, you’ll find buttons for manual temperature adjustments that range from 104F to 212F. There are also preset buttons for black tea, green tea, oolong tea, and coffee.

Now comes the smarts. Govee’s kettle works with a free app and Amazon Alexa devices, like the Echo Show 8, Echo Show 15, and Amazon Echo Dot.

Use the app to manually set a temperature, tap on a preset temp, and turn your smart kettle off and on. If you prefer hands-free control, call up Alexa and tell her what water temperature you want, and she does all the heavy lifting.

Boiling water takes just three minutes with Govee’s smart kettle, and the pour-over spout is perfectly aligned for pour-over coffee and other drinks. Your water stays at a consistent temperature when on the warming plate, and auto shut-off kicks in when the kettle is empty, or the desired temperature is reached.
