"Boiling more water than necessary has several implications - it takes longer time to boil which equals wasted electricity and higher energy bills," says designers Anna Czaniecka said. With this idea in mind, Czaniecka designed a kettle that is shaped like two mugs so the user can precisely measure how much water to boil for cups of tea. "I started this project by looking at kitchen appliances and I came across some data about the unusually high energy usage of a standard electric kettle," she told Dezeen, stating that three quarters of British households overfill their kettles – wasting a total of £68 million per year. Anna Czaniecka's Kttl is designed to save energy, and therefore money, that is wasted from boiling too much water in traditional kettles. At the moment it is a speculative project which highlights the amount of water and electricity being wasted in the scale of the country and offers a simple, pragmatic solution. "However I would love it to become a real product that could be mass produced," Czaniecka's expresses.
