Panasonic Ideas for Life



March 16, 2008

CHATSWORTH, CA– SANYO, a leader in small electric kitchen appliances, introduces a new Electric Kettle, U-K170S, which makes the preparation of tea, instant coffee, baby formula or instant noodles fast and easy. The Electric Kettle will be shown at the International Home and Housewares Show Booth #L11727, March 16-18 in Chicago.  

The U-K170S is a stylish electric kettle with a bright stainless steel finish and an internal blue LED light that shows through the top and water gauge window. The 7- Cup capacity is large enough for family use and the powerful 1500-Watt heating element brings water to a rapid boil.

The 360-degree swivel base conceals the cord for extra convenience while serving or filling the ergonomic pot. A blue LED interior light shows through the water gauge window, indicating the amount and boiling stage of water to the user. The LED also shows through a window in the lid so the user knows when the unit is turned on from above.  “With a stainless steel finish and overall stylish design, this kettle is attractive enough to remain on the kitchen counter, but stores conveniently with the cord hidden within the base,” said Derek Hines, SANYO Home Appliance Marketing Manager.

Safety features include auto-stop boiling and boil-dry protection. When the water reaches the boiling point the unit will automatically turn off.  Also, the concealed heating element makes cleaning the inside of the kettle quick and easy.
