The Energy Saving Kettle is a stylish electric jug kettle which has two water chambers. The main water chamber holds 1.5 litres of water which fills the boiling chamber by using a measuring button.

Good price for a great product, i've ordered one. I've been wanting one for a while now, as the kettle always seems to be on the boil in my house LOL

Strangely, the direct link doesn't work very well. Just select 'Around your home' for the kettle :)

Looks like a normal kettle, which will be a plus for most people... :thumbsup:

Until now, accurately measuring the amount of water to be boiled in your kettle has been all but impossible. The result? It is estimated that, on average, we boil twice the volume of water needed every time. Which means twice as much energy, twice as much time. With a 3kW kettle that’s the same as wasting the energy of around 50 light bulbs!
The Eco Kettle is different: its internal reservoir holds a full capacity of water ready for use, while the measuring button allows any quantity – from a single cupful to full capacity – to be released into the separate chamber for boiling.
The result? Exactly the right amount of water every time you boil – and no more waste.
The Eco Kettle was approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute in 2005 and is recommended by Powergen as a pioneering product in the battle to save energy in the nation's homes.
The Eco Kettle has been awarded the prestigious 'Recommended' mark by the Energy Saving Trust. This is the first award to be given in the Energy Saving Trust's newly established kettle category, and endorses the massive 31% average energy savings achieved by the ECO Kettle in independent trials. Based upon average usage figures, it is estimated that ECO Kettles sold over the past 2 years have already reduced CO2 emissions in the UK by a staggering 500 tonnes!

As seen on NewsNight, Tonight With Trevor McDonald and featured in October's Organic Life Magazine, ' reduce your impact on the planet with an eco-kettle'.
Lucy Siegle wrote in the Observer "This is where the ecokettle comes in. I do know quite some conscientious eco-types who attempt only to boil what they need by measuring out the exact amount of water, but that always seems to end in some kind of teabreak drama, when either too much or too little water is boiled. They need this eco-kettle. An internal reservoir holds 1.5l of water ready for use, while the measuring button allows any quantity from a single cupful to full capacity to be released into a separate chamber for boiling. So simple, I'm not sure why it hasn't been done before."

Thanks for the write up showman. The potential savings that this can make are staggering, when you consider that the average kettle has the same output as 20x 22" CRT TVs when on the boil!
It will pay for itself in no time :)

Voted hot because this is a very good price for this kettle if you want one, but I still don't quite get the point of it. Most modern kettles have a water-level indicator which clearly show you how much you need, and can be filled with very small amounts of water as the element is concealed so you don't need a minimum level of two cups like you used to to cover the element.

Mine does and every time I want to make only one cup, I fill it to that level out of the tap and boil only the water I need. I don't see how keeping some water stored cold in one side of the kettle and releasing the correct amount into the boiling part is any easier or better than simply filling the kettle with the correct amount from the tap! Am I missing something?

I do the same. But some people are lazy :thumbsup:

I'd say that it's more convenient to press a button rather than get a measuring jug out. The task of making a cuppa is not something I expect to be hassle, and this kettle makes it as easy as with a normal kettle.

My main driver in chossing a kettle is that it is easy to descale and clean. I can't tell with this but the description of a second chamber would bother me. Since any kettle filled to the correct level is highly efficient I would just mark the scale on the kettle with the water level needed to fill a teapot or a single mug of coffee. Simpler!

Brilliant! You won't be interested in this then. :p

But perhaps the ladies at work who insist on filling the thing up to full for one cuppa might be....

I don't doubt this is a good price, but I'd question the environmental credentials of this device.
By my rough calculations I can see this kettle saving 1% of an individual's carbon footprint if they boil a full kettle four times a day to make a mug of tea. I'm not quite that mad on boiling water so I think mine will be a fraction of a percent. Financially, if this kettle lasted three years it'd probably pay for itself in my case.
There is no mention of what carbon footprint and other environmental impacts this device has during its lifetime (design, manufacture, promotion, distribution and ultimate disposal). What are the company going to do with profits? Plant trees or buy company jets and fly round the world? Is it better just to hang on to my old kettle and (old fashioned idea) fix it if it goes wrong?

I'm all for saving the world, but good intentions just won't hack it. I'd like to see the bottom line for this.

Just to remind you all, the boiling point of water is 100 degrees ;-)

Is that why they call you mr fahrenheit? Can you travel at the speed of light? And would you like to make a supersonic man out of you?
