MITO Electric Kettle

Jun 10, 2015

Apparently overfilling electric kettles is kind of a problem. We never really gave it much thought, but yeah, if millions of people each day put too much water in their teapots, then use extra heat for that excess water, we see how it could add up.

MITO is being called the sustainable alternative to the electric kettle. What started out as a graduation project is now a real world thing. Here’s how it works: You fill your cup with water or liquid of your choice, put it on the induction base, then immerse the smart rod in the liquid. A typical glass coffee cup will take about a minute to heat up, but heating times will vary on how thick the bottom of the cup or glass is. MITO turns off automatically once the water is boiled, and the new MIITO Precise features a smart rod with a built-in temperature sensor, a base with a temperature-scale input based on capacitive touch, and a built-in temperature display. Watch the video below to see it in action. [Purchase]
