Ever wished you could set the kettle to boil the moment you woke up in a morning, just from your phone? Wish no longer as the iKettle is here, WiFi and iPhone app in tow! Available for £99.99 from British online retailer Firebox, the iKettle is available to pre-order now with general availability in 1-2 months.
The idea is ridiculously simple. Providing you keep it full of water, you can boil the kettle from anywhere in the home. When you wake up in a morning, the app will ask you if you want to boil it, likewise it will welcome you home by asking the same question. It's a lazy tea and coffee drinkers dream – otherwise known as me!
For more information and pictures, head on over to the source link below. It's expensive, for a kettle, and perhaps more than a little gimmicky, but I'm in love with the idea already. How about you?

<<<Ever wished you could set the kettle to boil the moment you woke up in a morning, just from your phone?>>> No. Interesting that it made it this far in the market though. Thanks.
Ok, the cool factor is there, and the price is about right for all the features. No internal element, and can handle various temps, and has a warmer. Only problem UK only, unless you have an adaptor for US. I am a coffee, and tea geek, so I really like the idea of this kettle.
Cool idea but not for me!
