8 ° CUP

“8°” is a design of cup.

When we collect the water by cup with filter screen from the tap, the water cannot enter the cup because the air in cup and the water you collect are entering the cup in the meantime. Our hands may have the risk of being burnt by boiling water.

In that case, the design of filter screen of inclination in “8°” avoids this problem. It adopts glass as basic material and bowl cover is made of plastic. In addition, the silicon protective jacket is added. The problem of hands being burnt by the boiling water can be solved in this way.
