VITEK VT-1180B – the world’s first silent kettle with an innovative and patented ceramic element. To understand the technology, let’s look at the typical teapot heating element, a steel element with a thin aluminium base.

The temperature at the bottom of such a kettle is unevenly distributed and during boiling the bubbles are localized at the bottom in a narrow area shaped like a horseshoe: it follows the shape of the heater located at the back side of the bottom.

Ceramic coating of the heating element promotes more even distribution of heat over the bottom, which significantly reduces the noise level. In addition, ceramic, known for its non-stick properties, easy to clean from limescale, and its absence contributes to the quiet operation and prolongs the life of the device.

Kettle body is made of high quality impact-resistant heat-resistant blue Schott Duran glass. German Coloured Glass technology and the multi-level Colour Fusion internal tank light create a unique atmosphere: the kettle glows from within, changing shades when the kettle is on standby and during operation.

Magic Bubble technology enhances the visual effect: when the water boils at the bottom of the kettle the bubbles form, resembling small pearls which rush upwards in the shining light. Keep Warm mode provides maximum precision of water temperature thanks to the PTC element, and the English OTTER controller ensures long kettle life.

Advantages: Ceramic coating of the heating element, low noise level, heat preservation mode, OTTER controller, impressive design, easy care.

Disadvantages: a common disadvantage of glass kettles – heavy.

Price: 3 190 Dollars.
