CIR-Q / Coffee Pot


The existing pot strains the wrist much, because you should lift it up to pour water after heating. But CIR-Q maximizes the usability, by connecting the heating pan to play a role as a support and the form of water bottle to keep water with its function for designing it. So once you rotate the handle simply, you can pour water easily.
The existing pot is also designed to turn off or sound, when water boils. But users usually watch TV or do other things, while it boils, and in this case, they cannot hear it well, sometimes and have to boil the cold water again.
