Electric kettles are actually very efficent at heating water, but most kettles are overfilled which wastes a huge amount of energy each year. So in these greener times, we're really excited about this new electric kettle concept. The Boiling Point kettle uses 30% less power, has more flavor in each cup of tea due to no re-boiling of the water which would reduce oxygen levels, and is much smaller than other kettles. We've got a full set of details and video after the jump.
More Efficient - By boiling the water in the cup, BoilingPoint™ ensures that exactly the right amount of water is boiled; thereby saving energy and water. DEFRA say that if everyone boiled only the water they needed each time, there would be a 30% reduction in energy consumption.
Safer - There is no lifting and pouring. This makes BoilingPoint™ safer by reducing the risk of scalding
More Flavour - Reboiling reduces the oxygen content of water. By only boiling the water as it is used, BoilingPoint™ ensures there is no reduction in oxygen content of the water. This allows the full flavour to be drawn from the tea-leaves.
Smaller - More and more people are living alone in smaller appartments. BoilingPoint™ has a footprint not much bigger than a cup. This frees up valuable counter space.
Design - The design of BoilingPoint™ is innovative and eye-catching. BoilingPoint™ replaces a boring kettle with a stylish alternative.
