This smart kettle design doesn't restrict itself by having to heat the water to one uniform temperature. This electric kettle from designers Yang Issie, Mo Junyuan and Tong Pokeys can be heated to different temperatures. In addition to being able things like tea, coffee, soup and instant oatmeal, this kettle can be set to lower temperatures if you just need warm water.
The smart kettle can be set to a range of temperatures, from 45 degrees Celsius to 92 degrees. For Haier, two different styles were conceived. One is white with silver detailing where as the other is black with textural elements.
The small kitchen appliances demonstrate how product design can go far beyond function.
