While modern appliances have made modern life much easier and more convenient, there is a certain joy to doing things the old-fashioned way. For many, this is especially true when it comes to straight-forward things like boiling water. Sure, you could use a microwave and get it done a lot sooner, but the act of putting on the kettle is a simple one that connects us to generations past who would begin their daily routine in very much the same manner. Of course, just because we’re doing something the old fashioned way doesn’t mean it can’t be made better through technology, right? That’s where the Secura SWK-1701D comes in.
The Secura SWK-1701D is the perfect tea kettle for anyone who enjoys a bit of the old and new at the same time. It’s a kettle, which obviously means a blast from the past, but at the same time it benefits from technological breakthroughs that make it easier, more convenient and safer to use. Because of these reasons, if you’re looking for a kettle, the Secura SWK-1701D is one to check out. Check out some of these features:
One of the most important features of this kettle is the double wall. What does this mean? It means that the interior and exterior are actually two different surfaces. This feature provides a huge boost in safety. Even when the kettle itself is full of boiling water, you can pick it up without a problem, because the exterior stays cool to the touch.
The interior of this kettle is made out of 100% stainless steel. This means the lid, the rim, the filter, the spout -- anything that comes into contact with the water is high-quality stainless steel. This helps in a couple of ways. First, it means the water boils quicker due to the steel’s heat conductive abilities. Even better, though, is the fact that at no time does the plastic in the exterior of the kettle come into contact with your water. This reduces the possibility of BPAs or other contaminants being introduced into the water.
As mentioned above, the stainless-steel interior allows more heat to reach the water more efficiently. This innovative design heats up the water in this kettle much more quickly than in other, more traditional kettles. This saves you time, which is great in itself, but it also saves you money, as less time boiling mean less time having to keep your stove burners on. As an added bonus, the double walled design acts as an insulator, keeping the water warmer longer.
This kettle holds 1.7 liters (1.8 quarts) which means more water for more tea, coffee, or whatever else. You can entertain more guests at once, and with the extra large spout, you can pour their cups quicker as well. In keeping with the “large” idea, a larger opening at the top also makes cleaning this kettle a breeze, as every spot of the stainless steel interior is easy to reach with a brush or cloth.
When you think about it, much of what makes this kettle special boils down to one word: safety. As mentioned earlier, the double-walled design means that it’s always cool to the touch and safe to pick up, no matter what. The 100% stainless steel interior ensures that no harmful chemicals are accidentally ingested, and the large opening makes it easy to clean, which helps get rid of any potentially harmful bacteria that may be lurking in the corners of more traditional kettles. All of this means, that each cup from this kettle can be drunk worry-free.
