Subject: Looking for alternatives to PINO Digital Kettle Pro
 

I use(d) a PINO Digital Kettle Pro for Aeropress use.  

I've been happy with the operation, but these things just don't last.  

My second in a year and a half just died.  

Has anyone found a more reliable alternative?

If you want to stay electric, any electric kettle will work. I have one I bought on a trip when I left mine at home, I paid $12 for it at Wallmart. It works fine and has lasted for 3 years now.

You can also use a tea kettle and your stove, a SS pan and an induction burner, a cast iron pot and a welding torch.... I think you get the idea. All you need to do is heat the water to a boil then give it a few seconds to drop below the boil and all is well with the world.
