T.pot / Household appliance


Many pots have a narrow and long mouth that users think it’s difficult to wash and also might think whether this month is clean or not.
This T.pot does not have a small mouth but a big one.

Shape memory alloys could help it clean and heat the water.
When T.pot is getting hot, the crown of it closes slowly.
As its temperature gets back to normal, T.pot is returned to its original state.

Moreover, it has a whistle. It whistles around 100 degree.
T.pot is transformed itself to whistle when it is getting hot.
So it’s called T.pot which stands for transformable pot.
