The right preparation and, above all, the right water temperature are crucial when it comes to the optimal enjoyment of black tea, green tea and coffee. The fontana 5 kettle can do more than boil water. It heats it to the exact temperature you require. Unnecessary heating and cooling to the required temperature is omitted, saving energy. The water can be heated to exactly 70, 80, 95 or 100 degrees Celsius with the help of four temperature settings – simply at the touch of a button. The thermally-insulated housing offers two advantages: firstly, it protects against unpleasant burning during use. Secondly, the heated water cools more slowly through the double-walled housing.
fontana 5 does not just impress with its energy efficiency. It is also particularly user friendly: Whether you’re a left or right-hander – with water level indicator on both sides, the filling volumes can always be seen without any problems, without it being concealed by your hand. The particularly wide-opening lid means the kettle can be filled more easily and also dried or cleaned just as easily. To prevent any irritating and unsightly limescale deposits, fontana5 is equipped with a highly polished stainless steel heating plate. The smooth surface means limescale cannot adhere as quickly, and is also easier to remove if necessary.
As the water hardness depends on the region, the kettle is equipped with two metal limescale filters. The coarse-pored limescale filter should be used in very hard water. The larger pores mean the water permeability is retained for a longer period of time despite the limescale deposits. The fine-pored limescale filter should be used for softer water, so that even the smallest limescale crumbs are caught. The sharp spout edges ensure the water is poured easily without any irritating dripping.
It is often the small things that make up a practical kitchen appliance as a whole.
fontana5 also fulfils all the requirements when it comes to safety: The temperature buttons are covered with waterproof film and the kettle switches off automatically when the pre-set temperature is reached. It is also equipped with protection against dry running and overheating. In addition, a safety lid, which has to be opened with two fingers to prevent any unintentional opening, and the illuminated LED display also ensure the safe handling of the kettle.
Due to its low energy consumption, its user-friendly operation and its environmentally-friendly materials, fontana 5 bears the “Blue Angel” environmental label “schützt das Klima – weil energiesparend“, as it protects the environment by saving energy. fontana 5 also impresses with its form and choice of colours in its clear, timeless Bauhaus appearance and won the coveted red dot product design award 2013.
