Eddy Kettle / Induction Heating Kettle

Eddy Kettle
Eddy Kettle

With an average lifespan of 4 years, the electric kettle is considered to be one of the “most disposable” electrical appliances.
The Eddy Kettle is an innovative take on the traditional stove-top whistle kettle. The design consists of a “Smart” induction heating base and “Dumb” Jug. The induction base extends the electronic components life up to 40 years. "Whistle Stop" technology ensures no thermosensors or electronics are needed in the jug design, allowing the "Dumb" jug to be recyclable and interchangeable.
The operational longevity in the base and aesthetic modularity of the jug allows the Eddy Kettle to achieve a sense of "timelessness".
