There's nothing in life that a hot beverage can't make a million times better. It's a known fact that all situations ever are vastly improved by popping on the kettle. The tragic, devastating, soul-destroying downside? Having to enter the kitchen to boil the blasted thing.
Such times of peril are officially behind us thanks to the iKettle 2.0.
Brimming with an impressive array of brand-spanking-new features, this ludicrously high-tech pot is a piece of must-have technology.
As with the original iKettle, this incredibly jacked up sequel still features all the original gems - including the ability to boil your kettle from anywhere in your home, 'Wake Up Mode', meaning you can be drawn gently from slumber with the question 'Good Morning! Would you like me to pop the kettle on? Yes / No' and then drift merrily back off to sleep.
Step through the door after a particularly tedious 9-5 slog and iKettle'll welcome you home by asking if you want a cuppa boiled. It even keeps water hot until you're ready to glug. What's more, an inbuilt water level sensor tells you exactly how much water is in the kettle, and "Boil Formula Mode' allows you to schedule brews and notifies you when your desired temperature has been reached.
All respectable hot beverage connoisseurs know that a Green Tea deserves to be served at 80° and a Coffee at 95°. iKettle's optimal brewing feature allows you to select a temperature anywhere between 20-100c - burnt tea be banished.
Mind-blowingly convenient technological brilliance aside, iKettle also looks the part. Smashingly sleek in design, it features a clean stainless steel design, LED backlit control panel, soft-touch rubber handle and functional filtered spout - making for a dashingly handsome addition to your kitchen.
The absolute best part of it all? All this is controlled by the tiny, simple and most importantly free App for iOS and Android. Wonderful stuff.
