I purchased my Bodum electric cordless water kettle a couple months ago when I decided to try out coffee beans rather than ground or instant. This has been wonderful!
Forget about the coffee -- which was wonderful as well! The Bodum water kettle is so very convenient! I never nuke water for recipes anymore; just pour it in the Bodum and click. I actually think it's faster than the microwave!
I use this for work when making my French Press coffee. Easier and faster than the microwave.
