It’s claimed that most of us boil twice the amount of water we need when using a kettle which equates to about twice as much energy being used than is really needed. To solve this problem the Eco Kettle is designed as a ‘smart’ electric kettle that can be set to specifically boil between 1 to 8 cups of water at a time. In other words exactly what you need. Just fill up the jug’s reservoir and when you start the boiling process the specified amount of water is automatically released into a separate boiling chamber where it is heated.
Besides using over 30% less energy the Eco Kettle is considerably faster too taking only 35 seconds to boil 1 cup of water and under a minute and a half to boil 4 cups. It also uses a power base that plugs into the wall allowing the kettle itself to be cordless and easy to handle.
Deep down everybody wants to be eco-friendly but there’s the constant stigma of being labelled a hippie or even dare I saw, a tree hugger. Thankfully there’s products like this which are friendly to the environment while still blending in with other household appliances.
The Eco Kettle is currently available from Gizoo for about $70.
