Default THE kettle

It has occurred to me that, like my darling wife of 65 years there are probably many forum members who, like her have arthritic hands and find it difficult, if not dangerous to lift a kettle full of boiling water.
About four years ago we were introduced to the UCCELLO kettle and we wouldn't be without one now. The kettle lifts out of it's cradle for filling and when sat back in it's cradle it makes electrical connection. When boiled it is tilted to pour, no lifting a kettle of boiling water.
The UCCELLO company appears to be international and whilst it costs $80.00 in Australia, I'm sure that it is less in America.

Just out of curiosity Harry, I looked them up on line.
Here they run from 89 to 115 US Dollars. Plus shipping.

That's unusual David because for our dollar we get less than 70 US cents at the moment. Even at those prices it's an essential piece of kitchen equipment for those with Arthritic hands, some people pay HUGE amounts for a SAWSTOP to ensure no accidents with their table saw is!

As a tea drinker with a few miles on my chassis, I like this thing. A bit dear for a kettle, but after all, it's the beverage of the Gods.

We use one like this one.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rosewill...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

It keeps my water for freeze dried coffee, tea, and cocoa at 209 deg F. When you press a button on the top a pump inside dispenses the water into your cup or container.
We've been using it for about 6 months now.

I just use the hot water from a Keurig coffee maker. I sometimes remember to remove the coffee container. Tea and coffee don't mix!

Many years ago, I gave my mother a Goblin Teasmade combo kettle/alarm/bedside light https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Vintage-Gobl...IAAOSwYhJdMyCr It was a very ingenious contraption; a kettle with a siphon spout sat on a counterbalanced heating element, with the spout feeding into a teapot. The element started heating some time before the wake-up time so that the tea would be brewed at the set time, the boiling water siphoned into the teapot and the heating element assembly, lighter by the missing water, tilted the other way until it made contact with the switch that sounded the alarm and also turned on the light - a nice hot cup of tea when you woke up and light to see to drink it by. Apparently they still make them, but they now look a lot different from this one on Ebay which is the model I remember with the light/lampshade on top of the clock.

It looks interesting Charlie, how is the boiled water dispensed from the unit?

I remember them well in the 50's back in England. I don't recall anyone who used them once the novelty wore off. It was such a pain to fill the kettle every night and place the tea leaves and sugar in their respective places.

I've just had a thought (I sometimes do!). Manufacturers always charge full recommended price so that they don't undercut their distributors. Ours came from one of the many firms that specialise in disabilities. Here is a link to one of the distributors in America.
