I got a pour over coffee brewer with reusable stainless steel mesh filter for my birthday today but now I feel like I want an electric kettle so I don't have to boil water in a cooking pot with no spout on my stove like a pleb.
#askfedi recommended electric kettles for use with pour over coffee? Hopefully not something ridiculous expensive.

I think the general recommendation is to get one with a goose neck for better control when pouring. IIRC, you're meant to do a circular motion while pouring the water for some reason (better aeration maybe?) I'm going off of one binging with babish episode I watched like a year ago though so take that with a grain of salt.
@logrus1 here in the UK EVERY house has a kettle, so we’re somewhat experts 😊
You get what you pay for with kettles. Get a cheap one and the element will likely burn it in a few months. I personally rate Russell Hobbs and Dualit.
