Working closely with a range of users, Alloy Total Product Design went back to first principles to design a kettle to make the act of boiling water safer, more convenient, and available to all. Called KettleSense, the product is innovative, but simple: pour cold water into a jug, put the jug in place, allow the machine to remove the cold water and heat it. The user then dispenses the water via a failsafe paddle. There is no need for the user to lift, pour or handle boiling water. It is a product that, according to Alloy, is feasible in terms of technology, inclusive in design, well priced and ‘desirable’.
