Low water alerts

What's the minimum water level in the kettle? Mine appears to have boiled with 50ml or less in it, which I presume isn't a good thing. Could a minimum level cut out be implemented?


As well as a cut out, it would be useful to have a water level alert (at a higher, user settable level). So, for example, if there's less than 150 ml in the kettle it absolutely won't boil. But if it drops below 600 ml (or 2 cups) then having a reminder to refill it would be good. Presumably, it would actually be in my hand at that point (having just poured the previous two cups), so refilling it would be easy. But since there's no visible level indicator, at the moment, I have to manually check (or risk somebody getting half a cup next time I brew up).

    Hello Tommy, 

    The iKettle will cut out between 16 and 20 seconds if boiled dry. Standard cut out time for kettles when boiled dry is 30 seconds. 
    Our kettles use a Strix mechanism which is present in over 2/3 of kettles on the market. This mechanism features two dry blade 100% mechanical boil protection, in addition to our temperature monitoring firmware.

    Thank you for your feedback on this! The development team may also be able to implement something like this. 

    Your feedback has been passed onto development. :)
