clever / kettle stand


Sometimes, the tea kettle is forgotten on the fire and when all the water vaporizes the kettle can be burnt out and damaged. This concept constitutes a base which is placed on the cooker, under a full-of-water kettle. As the water boils and vaporizes, the kettle becomes lighter. As a result, the springs designed in the base, compressed under the heavy kettle, are gradually stretched to increase the distance between the fire and the kettle. In this way, the elasticity of the springs react to the natural effect of vaporization of water and by decreasing the heat transferred to the kettle protect it from being burnt and damaged.
