Otis / Self-Filling Water Boiling Jug


Otis is a self-filling, water boiling jug; it provides a revolutionary new method of boiling water in the home.

The strong need to reduce water consumption drove the evolution of Otis.

Over-filling and over-boiling water often occurs when using kettles; this is eliminated through Otis’ unique design.

With mass market potential, Otis’ design is neutral in form and color. Allowing it to embrace many different kitchen designs and user lifestyles.
