Stylish electric water kettle has been designed to do everything a standard kettle will do, but also make the job of boiling a single cup of water extremely easy, quick and inexpensive. The innovative and patented lid system can be flipped out of the way like normal for large volume fills, or filled directly with one cup of water. On placement of the kettle on the base a siphon within the lid then transfers the water into to the main vessel.
The design recognizes that most energy wastage comes from overfilling the kettle, and the key to avoiding this is to make it super easy for the user to fill with the right quantity, avoiding the overfill. People do not intentionally create waste, and will do the efficient thing as long as it is also the convenient thing. This kettle allows the user to fill the easy-to-see lid vessel through a large, permanently open, aperture and at an ergonomic angle. No more than placement on the base is then required to ensure that the lid empties into the heating chamber.

The kettle integrates the operation of the siphon into the typical operations of the user when filling the kettle, so there are no new skills to learn.
This particular design takes its lead from art deco of cruise ships from the 30’s, the spout jutting outwards and upwards with a chromed rail running around the top. Porthole styled water windows allow the user to gauge the water level within the kettle.
