Here at Bean Bros, we stock both the Fellow Stagg EKG and the Stagg Pour-over kettle. There are lots of similarities between these kettles, but some big differences too. Both kettles come in the colour matte black.
Let’s first take a look into the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over kettle. This machine has barista-level functionality with its own electric base, meaning that you can control the water temperature with precision. This allows you to get your perfect cup of coffee every single time.
Of course, lots of variables go into how your coffee will taste. The temperature of the water is a huge factor, one which may be forgotten about by a beginner brewer. This machine helps you feed each of the optimum ingredients into your coffee cup.
It’s easy to use the temperature control features too. You just set the temperature you’d like the water to be heated to and the kettle does the rest. You can choose whether you’d like to see the temperature in celcius or farenheit.
It even has a ‘hold’ function, meaning that you can set a temperature and the water will be kept at that level for the next 60 minutes. If you don’t set the hold feature, your water will just be kept at that temperature for fifteen minutes instead.
It also has an impressively quick heating time. The Stagg EKG’s heating element is 1200 watts. This means there’s no waiting around for your water to warm up. You can set the temperature for anywhere between 57 and 100 degree celsius.
To make the whole coffee brewing process seamless, the base also has a built-in brew stopwatch via its LCD screen. This means that you can use the base to time the length of your brew, again ensuring that your coffee turns out great every time you use this machine.
The second of our models is the Stagg Pour-Over Kettle. This is the simpler of the kettles we stock as it doesn't have a heating pad like EKG. Instead, you heat the kettle using gas, electric, or induction hobs.
The kettles look very similar to one another. They both have a capacity of 900ml and a gooseneck spout. This means that you have full pour control and will be able to pour at whatever speed you deem suitable. That’s the beauty of a precision pour spout.
Both models are made from high-quality stainless steel covered in food-safe black matte paint. They also have counterbalanced handles made from plastic which gives you increased stability whilst you are pouring.
On the Stagg Kettle, there is also a temperature gauge built into the lid where you can read the temperature in either fahrenheit or celsius.
Stagg kettles are sleek and effortlessly stylish. The minimalist design will suit any kitchen and make your coffee brewing experience all the more enjoyable and precise. Decide which model is the best fit for you and add it to your kitchen counter today! Get your Fellow Stagg Pour-Over or Fellow Stagg EKG for sale at Bean Bros.
FAQs about Stagg Kettles
How to clean your Stagg kettle?
Always be sure that the base is unplugged of your kettle or it is cool before you start any cleaning process.
To keep your Stagg kettle in pristine condition, it’s a good idea to keep it clean and in order. To begin, you should never put your Stagg kettle in the dishwasher or immerse it in water or other liquids. This can damage the mechanisms inside the kettle.
Because of the matt balck paint, you won’t be left with an electric kettle with brown bottom. Also, on the EKG model, the heat is regulated, meaning you won’t have to worry about the metal being damaged.
If the Fellow Stagg EKG has no water in it, it will turn off so you avoid any issues with boil-dry stains. This means that there should never be any black residue in the kettle.
You can wipe the exterior of the kettle using a damp cloth. This should be enough to get off any grubby marks. There’s no need to use abrasive soaps or scouring pads. Just a quick wipe should do the job.
You may find that over time, your kettle will heat up but it will not boil. This is probably because there has been a buildup of scaling and mineral deposits. This is something you have to be especially careful of if the water in your area is particularly hard.
If this does happen, you will need to de-scale your kettle. You can do this using a scale or lime remover and follow the manufacturer's directions which you receive with the kettle.
How is the Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle reviewed?
This model has very good reviews and is generally celebrated for its precision when it comes to temperature control.
Which other models of Stagg kettle are popular?
Stagg EKG reviews are also highly rated. The biggest difference between this model and the ones we stock here at Bean Bros is that the Fellow Stagg EKG+ is bluetooth enabled. With bluetooth connectivity, you can set the kettle to work not just from the base but from far away as well from the Stagg EKG app.
Fellow also make their models in other colours as well such as the Stagg Kettle in white. The Fellow Stagg EKG in white gives off a different aesthetic altogether.
The Fellow Corvo EKG electric kettle is different again. This is another variable temperature control machine but is made for a wider variety of hot drinks, rather than just coffee.
What is the best temperature for brewing?
This depends on what sort of coffee you are brewing and even how old your coffee beans are. In general, it is accepted that coffee should be brewed between 90 and 96 degrees celsius. Many baristas brew more around the 96 degree mark, though this is something that you can experiment with thanks to your Fellow Stagg EKG 220V.
The Stagg EKG will maintain whatever temperature you set it at for fifteen minutes. If you set the ‘hold’ button, it will keep your water at whatever degrees fahrenheit or celsius for 60 minutes.
