The Kug, an amalgamation of the words kettle and mug, is exactly that. A mug that sits on a stand that acts as a kettle. The hidden heating elements in the base bring water to the boil in 30 seconds. Practical; and its pretty too.
The Kug was designed as a solution to the problem many people with arthritis have in lifting heavy kettles. But its appeal is far more universal than that.
