iKETTLE: The World’s First Wi-Fi Kettle


For when flicking the switch on your electric-powered kettle just feels like too much trouble, iKettle is the world’s first wifi-powered “Kettle” – and as such, it comes with a few neat features. The most-awesome of those has to be iKettle’s ability to boil your kettle directly from your smartphone. The product connects over your local wireless network to allow for the wireless switching on, and boiling, of the iKettle – from anywhere in the home. If the kettle boils and you’re not ready to go and attend to it, tapping “Keep Warm” on the notification on your iPhone will ensure that – when you are ready – that drink will still be steaming-hot. Call yourself a hot-drink connoisseur? – Then you don’t need us to tell you that a Green Tea deserves to be served at 80° and a Coffee at 95°. With four tailored and precise temperature settings, this steaming servant is your new gateway to the absolutely flawless brew. Just because the iKettle is packed full of incredible technology, this doesn’t mean it has to look like something out of Wallace and Gromit. With its clean stainless steel design, LED Backlit control panel, soft-touch rubber handle and functional filtered spout it’s very much a smart and refined addition to your kitchen. Just arrived home and fancy a brew? – iKettle will even recognise when you walk through the front door – by pinging your smartphone’s GPS module, as it welcomes you home by first asking if you’d like to pop the kettle on. For the style conscious out there, there’s also the option to match the iKettle to your current kitchen decor, with a range of brightly-colored and insulating iKettle “skins.” Embrace laziness and enjoy perfect hot drinks, what’s not to like? You can pre-order on Firebox – for £99.99. For more information, follow the link below.
