I - DUAL PORT / Industry (living)


'i-dual port ' is an appliance which heats upper kettle by using the vapor coming from the lower part. This product is inspired by an irori, which is a traditional Japanese culture to bake some food on the floor fireplace with making hot tea in the suspended kettle above. Similarly, our product can cook simple food in the bottom part and make tea at an appropriate temperature in the pot above. It is scientifically possible that the high-temperature steam generated by a down part helps water boil in the upper kettle. It has functions to be used by several people at the same time and also can be conveniently used as separated as well.
