MIITO is kind of like a magic wand that commands the elements. I mean, as long as the elements you want to command are liquid, and your command to them is to boil. An eco-friendly alternative to the kettle, MIITO combines a metal rod with an induction base to boil a variety of liquids right in the vessel you're using to consume them. It eliminates the extra time, water, and energy required to boil water or heat soup on the stovetop, and the risks of uneven heating associated with warming items such as breast milk/baby formula in the microwave.

As a problem-solver, MIITO's primary intended solution is to reduce the amount of water wasted in filling a giant kettle to boil water for a single cup of tea or Ramen. Instead, the MIITO heats just the amount of liquid needed right inside its container. The system works with cups, bowls, glasses, teapots, and any other non-ferrous vessel. Place the filled item on the MIITO induction base, insert the heating rod, and press a single button to activate the heating process on anything from water and coffee that's gone cold to leftover chicken soup and gravy.

MIITO's one-button system/touch sensor ensures the base fires up only when the heating rod is in place inside a container. Once it reaches a boil, the device will signal, stop heating, and shift back to Standby mode. As an induction surface, the top of the base always stays cold.

MIITO is available as a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter through June 13, 2015.
