nils chudy of creative studio chudy and grase has developed ‘miito’, an innovative induction plate that warms liquids directly within the vessels they are intended to be consumed from, rather than using an electric kettle to do so; thus eliminating the heating of excess water. though it may seem like a small change, according to sustainability strategist leyla acaroglu, ‘one day of extra energy use from overfilling electric kettles is enough to light all the streetlights in england for a night.’

presented at dutch design week 2014 (DDW) as part of the design academy eindhoven 2014 graduation show, ‘miito’ utilizes an induction base — in which to place your cup, bowl or teapot of water — in combination with a heating rod — immersed directly into the vessel — in order to warm the liquid. the product works with non-ferrous containers of any size, and can also be used for warming soup, or milk, suggesting its versatility.

functioning without an instate button, by simply lifting the rod from the base ‘miito’ shifts into standby mode whereby small current flows detect the ferrous material of the induction plate. when a cup, or teapot for example, are placed onto the base, and the rod centered inside, full induction power is ignited. once the liquid is boiled, ‘miito’ shifts back into standby mode, and removing the rod and placing it on the plate signals the device to shut off. additionally, the minimal shape of the rod allows it to be cleaned easily.

  • How about heating an egg beater in the fireplace and stirring ‘really’ fast ..warms you in two ways. Inductive heat is interesting but very inefficient.
