In the mood for a hot drink but don’t want to wait for the kettle to boil? Now you don’t have to with the iKettle – the world’s first Wi-Fi kettle. A simple one-touch setup allows you to instantly control the kettle from anywhere in your home using your smartphone as the controller. The accompanying app for it features a Wake mode that’s a wakeup call that prompts you if you’d like to turn on the kettle as soon as you get up so that it’s ready in the kitchen when you want it.
And once it’s boiled, the app will then ask if you want to keep it warm for a while longer. And with its four tailored and precise temperature settings, you’ll have your coffee and tea warmed to the exact degrees they should be warmed at (Green Tea at 80° and a Coffee at 95°). Not only is it a convenient way to enjoy warm beverages, but it also features a stylish design that will complement any modern decor. It has a stainless steel design, LED backlit control panel, soft-touch rubber handle so you don’t burn yourself and a functional filtered sprout. It comes with a standard 3-pin UK plug so you might need a converter to use in the US. Get your own iKettle for $162.39 from Firebox.
