2018. Inspired by the occurrence of natural weather events in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands. Natural Kettle is a kitchen accessory meant for use in homes without ready access to gas or electricity.
The body of the kettle is made from a heat-resistant ceramic to preserve the integrity of the kettle with repeated use.
The contents of the kettle are heated via an ignited chafing fuel canister. The base on which the kettle stands acts as the housing unit for the fuel canister. When the canister is ignited, the kettle is placed on top of the base to warm the containing liquid.
A groove at the front of the kettle is coated with a thermochromic paint that changes color as the liquid is heated, providing a visual liquid level and temperature indicator.
The lid of the kettle is held in place via a magnet that attaches to a metal plate embedded in the handle of the kettle.
