We've seen several innovations in the design of the humble electric kettle recently that save time and energy – here's another one. The "Eco Switch" kettle has two settings – one for normal boiling water and a second which heats water to 85-degrees Celsius (185F) for things like soup. This means you get your warm water quicker, save energy, and you don't have to wait for it to cool down before you can drink it.

SEVERIN's Eco Switch kettle also features a double-walled stainless steel housing which keeps the water hot for longer and an LED flip switch lets you see which of the two settings you have chosen.

The Eco switch kettle will hit shelves in March 2011 at a cost of 50 Euros.

Some models of CoffeeMaster vacuum coffee pots had a dual temp switch like this so the lower half could be used to heat water for tea etc.

When? Only around 40 to 50 years ago.

The CoffeeMaster (and similar vacuum pots), with thermostat adjusted to the right temperature, is second only to the expensive and finicky balanced siphon in brewing the best coffee. That's according to those who actually like the ghastly tasting stuff.
