I recently bought a kettle which is nicely designed and it matches the toaster. It operates like this:
- To open the metal lid the black button needs to be pressed and the lid pops open.
- To close the lid, a metal part of the lid needs to be pressed down (since closing it with a finger on the button does not work — that’s for opening it).
This becomes a problem if I need more than one kettle worth of water. So I need to boil one after another. The metal lid heats up and it’s impossible to touch it without being burnt. Using a kitchen towel works.
I wonder how the design team did not test this out.
