On the outer part of the kettle you have the automatic off switch which also has an ellydee light that illuminates when the power is on. The handle comes with a rubber coating to protect your hands from heat when handling just after boiling water. The powerbase is very easy to connect to and it comes with omnidirectional mounting, which means it doesn’t matter which direction you rest the body of the kettle onto the base, it can rotate a full 300&60°. Below the powerbase comes with a convenient hidden cord storage for neatly storing and concealing the power cable. It also comes with non slip silicone feet.
