Uccello Kettle – Black / White

£53.94 (save £8.99 if VAT exempt)
The Uccello Kettle is a safe and elegant assistive technology that makes handling boiling water safely seem effortless. It opens up a world of confidence and independence for anyone who wishes to handle boiling water safely. Unlike other kettles and kettle-tippers, the circular shape of the Uccello Kettle, combined with its rotating cradle, moves around the body of water to assist the flow of the pour, so you don’t have to lift, strain, balance or aim. The positioning and shape of the ergonomically designed Uccello handle means weight is distributed across the entire arm, not on fingers and wrists, which makes it easier to handle comfortably. While most kettles require that you awkwardly lift and hold open the spout while refilling, the Uccello’s one touch to open hinged lid, requires the lightest of touches to tap open or close. Uccello’s detachable water body vessel sits comfortably within a sturdy base that has the added safety of non slip feet for further stability of pour. The black and white contrast design of the Kettle colours helps individuals with dementia and low visibility differentiate the important parts of the Kettle, including the easy touch lid button. This elegant feature is also a safety feature. From first to last drop of boiling water, the tapered design of the spout ensures water is targeted to the same spot every time, without the splashing, inconsistency or lack of control experienced with ordinary kettle pours.With so much peace of mind including a wide opening for easy filling, quiet boiling and auto shut off protection from overheating Uccello brings you the next level in safe, elegant and effortless assistive technology. 1.5 litre (6 cup) capacity.

Action for Children
