Smart Edge / pot

Smart Edge
Smart Edge

Boiler is very important for our daily cooking. But there are several problems in using it. For example, its cover needs to be moved slightly so as to leave a small gap to let out the vapor after boil, and the heated boiler would damage the table surface if it is put on the table directly.
The “Smart Edge” is an improved boiler, whose cover is designed with a curve edge. Two types of arc allow the cover to connect with the boiler in different ways, which helps to overcome the mentioned problems.
