Volcano / kettle


Volcano is a traditional kettle that stops making boiled water more than it would be needed.
Many users are still using traditional kettle which have no scaling feature to show the amount of water. So, they pour more water than they need. As a result, some boiled water would be left with no use.
In response, Volcano kettle is designed to measure the amount of water in scale of cups during pouring water. Whenever the top bowl of the kettle is full, the user would press the button on the handle to lead the water fall into the kettle. That is the number of button pressing, indicates the number of cups of boiled water that are to be used.
