Taking the best of both, the traditional kettles and Jug kettles, the product tank kettle is a cross between the two designs. The hybrid kettle gives you the convenience of easy filling, carrying and pouring, thanks to two handles that provide multiple grip points. The thick insulated walls not only save energy by keeping the water warmer for longer, cutting down on re-boiling time, but they also give you the freedom to hold it from outside without getting burns. As far as the filling goes, it can either be done traditionally, through the central aperture, or with the lid, which can be swung out to any angle and filled through an anti splash mesh opening. After the lid is closed, it compresses an annular rubber seal to avoid burns from escaping steam.
