Our Review

The Uccello Tipping Kettle is a kettle designed to remove the burden of heavy lifting and tipping. It's designed specifically for people with limited movement such as the elderly, those with arthritis, those with Parkinson's, etc. Its design is simple and straightforward. It essentially consists of a tipper which sits in a cradle and pivots forward and backwards, putting minimal strain on hands and wrists.

To further help provide a easy experience, there are a number of additional design features. Firstly, the opening where the water goes is large, allowing for easy filling and cleaning. Secondly, the water chamber is non-weight bearing in the sense that the only physical movement required is pushing of the handle.

About Uccello

The Uccello Kettle came about after a man named Andy DePetra was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. He very much enjoys drinking coffee, and finding it increasingly difficult to make coffee independently, he set out to find a solution. The culmination of his hard work resulted in the Uccello Kettle.

Uccello Tipping Kettle's two main components.

Specification

We now take a quick look at the list of features.

  • Capacity - 1.5 Litres, which is enough for about 5-6 cups.
  • Hinged Lid - The lid is hinged for convenience.
  • Large Opening - There's a large opening to facilitate easy filling and pouring.
  • Handle - The handle is ergonomically designed to provide a safe and easy grip. It's ideal for those with arthritis or Parkinson's for example.
  • Water Level Indicator - There's an easy to read water level indicator on the side of the kettle. It works when the kettle is upright.
  • Easy Tip - The design is such that the weight of the kettle and water are on the cradle, and not on your hand or wrist.
  • Automatic Shut Off - Once boiled, the kettle will automatically shut itself off.
  • Overheating Protection - The kettle is protected against overheating through the use of a sensor.

Overall

All in all, the Uccello Tipping Kettle is great for the elderly, disabled, and those with arthritis or Parkinson's disease. It's perfect for care home kitchens as well as for personal use. We particularly like how the weight of the water and tipper doesn't affect the ease of pouring. So far as we're aware, the Uccello Kettle is one of a kind, with a well thought out and excellent design. We rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
