From the boardroom to the bedroom, the simple electric kettle has become an integral part of our life. Little do we realize that the overfilled jug actually wastes a lot of energy and adds to our electricity bills? The Boiling Point is a kettle concept that hopes to bring about a green revolution and save on electricity. This i8s how it works: You need to place the element on top of your chosen mug and push down a lever. When the water in the cup boils, the heating element retracts, and your beverage is ready. This energy-efficient boiler uses 30% less power and infuses rich flavor to the brew. The only hitch I see in this energy saving device is that in case you need to make more than one cup of tea or coffee at a time, the whole exercise of preparing two cups separately will negate the ‘green purpose’.
