T-pot / electric kettle


Weaker grip strength and hand arthritis often happen to the elderly people, and normally, kettles are heavy for them to lift, especially as it contains water. The pain on their hand joints and hand tremor could be increased while carrying such a heavy thing, which may even put them in danger while pouring hot water. Hence, this two-handed operated T-pot is designed for the better control and the reduction of the load of weight with two handles. Users could intuitively hold the kettle with two hands instead of merely one, which also facilitates the process of carrying it to the sink and fill with water.
