I currently use a $10 electric kettle both at home and work with my collapsible drip cone. Controlling the pour is impossible. Today I tried pouring into my Contigo thermal cup (with push button when drinking). I used it to pour the hot water for drip and it worked great! I have several cups at work so this makes for easy travel if I'm in a rush. Contigo cups are great. Keeps my coffee hot for hours. If your pressed for cash this is a good way to control the pour.

Awesome. I tried using as cotter pin, centered in the middle of the spout of my electric hot water pot. It dribbled too much. I broke down and got a goose neck ss kettle on the cheap directly from Taiwan Thanks for the tip.

Great ideas. I've used a travel mug as a pouring kettle at work and tried the cotter pin trick on a kettle to help direct the flow. You can even use milk steaming pitchers for pouring kettles if it works better than what you have.
Now I've got pouring kettles coming out my ears so I no longer use these tricks, but they do come in handy sometimes when you're away from home and need to improvise or pack light.
