Entry Description

Twist is a sustainable water boiler/kettle with zero water loss. It preserves water by inner circulation, therefore provides water, energy and time efficiency.

Water scarcity, global warming and decreasing resources make it a necessity for a product to be sustainable and resource saving. With water kettles, water efficiency is a problem where %25 of the water is lost during boiling. Unlike conventional kettles, Twist does not waste water, while it also saves energy by reducing process time. Besides being eco-friendly, it also makes water-heating process more economic, safe and practical. With its innovative water cycle system, water and steam are preserved in body and circulated.

Coming in various colors, Twist kettle designed in a line to fit modern kitchens. With its 1.5 liters capacity, it is suitable for both single living persons and families. Also aiming to reduce used water amount, it encourages using less water by eliminating the risk of burning out the kettle by leaving on the stovetop. As there is always water preserved inside, Twist works fine with little amounts. Therefore the users need to put only enough water for a use that in turn reduces the spent energy in comparison with a full kettle. It also saves energy by working like a thermos, keeping the water hot in its closed system after it is removed from stove. Thus energy spent for reheating is also reduced.
