All the new designs heat water instantly with a technology Heatworks calls Ohmic. “For the last 100 years, electric water heating appliances have been designed with one fundamental flaw: they all use metal elements to heat the water”. Wether it is a kettle or a dishwasher, metals end to rust and create problems. The Ohmic metal-free technology makes use of graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls exciting the naturally occurring minerals in water to heat efficiently.
Made for your busy lifestyle, the DUO Carafe is battery-operated and can heat up to 4 cups of water instantaneously to (+/-) 1° F. Simply add cool water to the reservoir, replace the top, and pour. You’ll get filtered cool or precisely heated water to fill up your coffee mug, tea cup, soup bowl, or even baby’s bottle.
DUO is 99% energy efficient. Includes a water filtration system to ensure that you start with the best tasting water. So far, the design is still a prototype, but at Heatworks they hope to sell it within the end of 2019.
At CES, Heatworks also showcased Tetra, the compact and portable countertop dishwasher that doesn’t require plumbing. Tetra comes with its own water reservoir. Simply pour in water, choose the modular racks that work with the items you are washing, and watch it clean your dishes in minutes.
Designed by frog, portable dishwasher fits in tiny apartments meeting millennial compact and nomadic lifestyle. Use it anywhere that has a standard electrical outlet. Tetra will be available in the next couple of months for $299 to start.
Tired of waiting for water to boil or, even worst, running out of hot water while taking a shower? The ‘adorably compact’ and app-enabled MODEL 3 electric smart water heater is energy efficient. You can get more hot water and reduce the overall cost of heating water by about 40%.
