This smart kettle has a capacity of 1.5 liters, so it’s a large kitchen appliance for everyday use. The robust casing is made of white hard plastic. More importantly, the interior is made of 304 type double stainless steel. It has buttons for keeping the water temperature and heating up and will turn off automatically when the boiling point is reached. It is mounted on a swivel base, so you can rotate it 360 degrees.
Triple electric protection against short circuit is particularly important, because it is a device that has contact with water, so additional precautions are always good for safety. In addition to traditional switch, heating can be controlled by an Android or iOS smartphone with Xiaomi app, that enables you to maintain chosen water temperature for up to 12 hours.Underneath the kettle is information about the voltage used (standard 220V for EU and China) and a warning not to immerse the base in water. Design of this device resembles other popular electric kettles, so no big surprises here. The cable in the base is about one and a half meters long and is rolled up inside the base, so it can be shortened if needed. Let’s go over the basic functions and parameters.
You can operate this kettle by buttons or app. Boiling can be switched on by hitting buttons located at the handle. The upper button activates a one-stage water heater up to 100 Celsius degrees, while the lower one sets a continuous heating up to approximately 60 degrees.
There is also option to control the temperature through Bluetooth using the Xiaomi app, which can be downloaded for free on Android or iOS devices. So far, the app is available only in Chinese, but it’s not difficult to use. This app allows you to set one of the preset temperatures – 90 Celsius degrees (coffee icon), 80 degrees (tea icon) and 50 degrees (bottle of milk icon). You can also set temperature precisely in 1 Celsius degree increments. You can set it up to heat water at a specific time and for safety reasons, heating will be automatically turned off after 12 hours of inactivity.
