Plissé Electric Water Kettle, 1.0L - White by Michele De Lucchi

Regular price
4-8 Weeks

Electric kettle in thermoplastic resin. US plug.

The “Plissé” kettle’s shape is defined by its folds - reminiscent of an haute couture dress. “Plissé” was shaped starting from a folded sheet of paper, then developed and produced by Alessi as if it were a beautiful sartorial object. The folds give form to the shape, they structure it, "because a form without folds is only a volume without form".

The folds transform simple two-dimensional sheets into three-dimensional objects.

Thermoplastic Resin


•The power supply base is hidden within the bottom of the kettle body, there is a small opening from which the cable pulls out.
•Adjusting the cable length is easy. Simply turn over the power supply base and unroll the cable using the appropriate loops until the cable is long enough to reach the plug socket.
•On the lever switch, a light indicates when the water heater is active. Once boiling point is reached, the kettle switches off automatically and the switch returns to its original position.
•To switch off the kettle before the water begins to boil, simply remove it from the power supply base: the heating process will stop and the switch will return to its original position.
•Inside the spout, a filter retains any limestone particles formed inside the kettle. The filter can be removed, rinsed under running water and placed back in the spout.
•To open the lid of the kettle, push the knob/opening button gently backwards. This pulls back the internal release tab which holds the lid closed. The operation is made easier by the shape of the knob which has a slight indentation that transfers the pressure exerted by the finger to open the lid. To close the kettle, lower the lid until the internal tab clicks.
•A symbol (MAX) located inside the body of the kettle indicates the maximum level of water that it can contain.
•A safety device cuts off the power supply if there is too little or no water in the kettle, avoiding possible damage.
•The handle is designed for comfortable, firm grip. The shape of the spout facilitates pouring.
•The base of the kettle is thermally insulated, so even once the water has reached boiling point, it can be placed safely on any worktop/surface.
•To clean the inside of the kettle, we recommend using water and vinegar. For the exterior and for the power supply, it is best to use a damp cloth and a mild detergent.
