Design Water Boilers – Charming Household Helpers

Tea, hot water wattles or a hot cup of soup – we use water boilers all the time. Consequently, our demands are quite high: heat maintenance function, individual temperature setting, the calcium filter should be removable and the heater element as well as the cable should be hidden subtly. Designers from around the world take these demands as a challenge and have developed water boilers that keep up with their everyday use. We have the best designs for you in our shop.

Design Water Boilers – Your Benefits at a Glance

Individual Temperature Selection – If you don’t want Boiling Water

The tea lovers among us will know: different types of tea require different water temperatures. Boiling water gives black tea its dry aroma. Fine teas such as white or green tea burn at 100 degrees and develop an undesired bitter aroma. The Artisan Water Boiler by KitchenAid allows you to select water temperatures between 50 and 100 degrees. This way, you will not damage the delicate Japanese green teas that should be prepared at 60 degrees.

Calcium in Design Water Boilers – The Undesired Neighbour

We know that calcium in water boilers affects the taste of tea or coffee. Furthermore, it reduces the effectiveness of heating for the device. A simple household trick can help. Mix about one cup of water with some vinegar essence and cook this mixture in the water boiler. Afterwards, everything will be clean. Design water boilers such as Alessi’s boiler have a heating element underneath a stainless steel plate so that it does not have direct contact to the water. Thus, annoying calcium deposits won’t even occur. Additionally, the spout of the water boiler has a calcium filter. If calcium does arise, the filter will catch it before it can end up in your cup.

Stainless Steel or Plastic?

Contrary to general opinion, plastic water boilers and stainless steel water boilers are equally good. The heating power of the device depends on the technology. A classic water boiler has a heating element in the bottom. This element heats up. Depending on the quality and implementation of the design water boiler, the heating element is hidden underneath a stainless steal bottom. This makes cleaning the device easier. Another practical use of water boilers is a heat maintenance function. The Emma Water Boiler by Stelton has a double wall and keeps water hot for a long time, similar to a thermos jug.

If you would rather heat your water in an old-fashioned way, you can find something in the category of water kettles. Here you will find new interpretations together with the traditional whistle.
