As someone who loves her tea, I would well believe it. But what about those living with limited strength and mobility? How are they managing the lifting, balancing, and pouring of the kettle when they make their cuppa? When making the tea be risky and painful?
This is where assistive technology and daily living aids come in to save the day. Products like our Muggi Cup Holder or Uccello Grip Mat will help make life easier. Not forgetting the one that started it all, our Uccello Kettle. The safe and easy tilt-to-pour kettle.
When it comes to our Uccello Kettle we are often asked what the difference is between it and the old kettle tipper. They both tip and pour out water don’t they?… Yes, they do but in very different ways.
With our Uccello Kettle the kettle body rotates around the body of water for an overall weightless experience. You never have to lift and hold for a safe and easy pour. Whereas, with the kettle tipper, it acts as a pendulum so you will still need to lift the weight of the kettle as your pour and hold the weight of the kettle as you return it to it’s upright position.
Today we want to share just how much more beneficial the Uccello Kettle is when compared to the Kettle Tipper. This way before you buy, you are armed with all the information you cold need.
Uccello Kettle V’s Kettle Tipper
Stylish Modern Design
When it comes to assistive technology and daily living aids, the focus is always around function. Of course there is nothing wrong with that. If it helps keep you independent and makes life easier, we are not complaining. If that’s what you are after, then perhaps the kettle tipper is ideal for you. However, with the Uccello Kettle we’ve taken both form and function into our design.
We’ve perfect the tilt-to-pour action, making pouring a hot kettle safe and easy for all. We developed a kettle with 4 unique colour options to better your home and given it a modern style so that it will be a great conversation starter with family and friends.
There’s no more hiding your daily living aids and gadgets, display your Uccello Kettle proudly. They will all want to give it a go.
Safe & Sturdy
Unlike other kettles and kettle tippers, the Uccello Kettle has a detachable water body that sits comfortably with a sturdy base. Both have 4 non-slip rubber feet for added safety.
The average kettle may come with a base plate that you sit the kettle onto to boil which can easily move about on the counter.
Lift Free Pouring
With the kettle tipper, you are still carrying the full weight of the kettle on your hands, wrists and arms. To pour from a kettle tipper it still requires strength and grip.
Thankfully with the Uccello Kettle you can tilt-to-pour with just one finger should you wish. The circular shape of the kettle combined with its rotating base, moves around the body of water so you don’t have to lift, strain, balance or aim.
It really does depend on the kettle you have but we have seem many with a circular spout (for aesthetics) that do no deliver a safe and steady pour. While it may make the kettle look good, there is a very real possibility of burns or scalds if you overfill it or pour a little to fast.
With the Uccello Kettle it has a tapered spout which means from the first to last drop of water, the spout will ensure that the water is targeted to the same spot every time. No splashing, inconsistency or lack of control.
1 Touch Lid Opening
A lot of kettle’s on the market require you to either pull the lid off the kettle or lift and hold it while filling. For someone with weakened hand strength this can cause frustration and pain.
With our Uccello Kettle, the one-touch-to-open hinged lid needs the lightest of touches to tap both open and close. No awkward lifting, pulling or holding needed.
1 Kettle fits All
In the very description of the kettle tipper instruction manual it states, that it will suit ‘most kettles‘. With the Uccello Kettle, you get a kettle nd tipper in one. Since the body can come away free from the base you can choose to use it like the average kettle or if you prefer, you can always keep it in its base and happily tilt-to-pour.
It’s the kettle for everyone.
No Assembly Required
When your Uccello Kettle arrives, you simply open the box and plug it in. The is no fuss, no muss. When it comes to the kettle tipper there is some assembly required to ensure all the bars are connected correctly. Then you need to ensure your kettle fits and is secured to the wire frame.
Life is hard enough, don’t let making a cuppa get you down.
