Convenience and Cost Savings

An electric kettle is a great addition to any kitchen.  The purchase of one brings you not only the convenience of boiling water on demand, but can also prove a godsend for the frequent tea drinker.  

While an electric kettle can be extremely convenient, it can also be a source of wasted energy and money.  The Eco Kettle changes this!

The typical electric kettle has a single tank for water that can hold up to 2 quarts or more.  This is convenient because it allows you to boil large amounts of water, but typically this full amount of water is not needed.  Because of this energy is wasted by boiling the full amount of water when only a fraction is needed.

The Eco Kettle resolves this issue by allowing you to keep the kettle full, but only boiling the exact amount of water that you need.  This precision boiling can result in up to a 30% energy savings.  


How It Works

The Eco Kettle has two water chambers, an inner and an outer. The outer chamber lets you to keep the Eco Kettle full of water while a central button allows you to release from 1-8 cups of water into the inner chamber.

By carefully controlling the amount of water that is in the pot, the Eco Kettle will allow you to boil only the amount of water you need. By only boiling the amount of water you need, you save energy and ultimately money. The Eco Kettle lets you recognize this energy savings, but still allows you to keep your kettle full without the need to refill for every cup.

According to the Energy Saving Trust, the ECO Kettle used over 30% less energy than traditional kettles.

The Department of Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs in the UK notes :

"If everyone boiled only the water they needed to make a cup of tea instead of 'filling' the kettle every time, we could save enough electricity to run practically all the street lighting in the U.K."

So if you in the market for an electric kettle take a look at the Eco Kettle
