Subject: Kettle for AeroPress
Anyone know how much water the AeroPress takes? Anyone have a
suggestion for the smallest electric kettle to use with it for
traveling? I'm looking at the Bodum Mini Ibis Electric Water Kettle;
is there something smaller that would work?

Thanks. I'm off to get one. Sounds great for travel. Do you use one of
those little immersion heaters?

Hi Karl,
no - all the places I've stayed have had kettles in the room, or there has
been easy access to hot water close by.

Thanks for the suggestions, Jack. I was wondering how much water the
AeroPress uses - I guess it's about a cup since the ads all show it
dispensing into a cup, so an immersion heater should do. Haven't
melted one of those down since college.

Hi Karl,
my aeropress holds 200mL when filled to the top k (a cup being 250mL).
I've found mine to be good for travelling, mainly because it's unbreakable.
HTH!

You could get an immersion heater and boil the water in the hotel coffee
mugs (or bring your own). That's your best bet for "traveling light".

Be sure to keep the element under water at all times when the thing is
plugged in or it will melt itself in a jiffy.
