Kettles in Detail

Folks at Product Tank have redesigned the kettle for many reasons but the focus still remains on easy carrying and filling. Let me get into the specs of this particular design, it’s got an attached lid that flips out and is used as a mechanism to help fill the kettle. The multiple hand grip positions make it easy to carry, fill and pour the water. A hybrid between the traditional and jug handled design; this kettle provides multiple grip points and has thick insulated walls.

A clear display modeled on the car petrol gauge, shows the how much water you have left in the kettle. As the designer explains….

Filling can either be done traditionally, through the central aperture, or the lid, which can be swung out to any angle and filled through an anti splash mesh opening. I conducted several experiments to find the best aperture ratio to let enough water through, (without running across the top of the mesh) whilst eliminating splashback. This solves the problem encountered when filling many traditional kettles of holding the kettle whilst providing enough space to get the tap past your knuckles. When the lid is closed, it compresses an annular rubber seal, so there can be no burns from escaping steam.

    wats the way to clean the net which is there on top and at the dispensing area of the kettle

    • both meshes are removable to go in the dishwasher or be replaced. The dispensing mesh is accessed when the lid is half spun out although in realtiy it would be much deeper within the prodct and a much finer grade, for the purposes of model making, it was easier to have it sat at the front as the model is made from wood and the mesh hides some of the construction.
