How the Uccello Kettle works
The Uccello Kettle is a practical assistive technology that makes pouring a kettle feel light as a feather, while also opening up a world of confidence and independence for anyone who wishes to handle boiling hot water safely.
 
Form and functionality
Unlike other kettles and kettle-tippers, the circular shape of the Uccello Kettle, combined with its rotating cradle, moves around the body of water to assist the flow of the pour, so you don’t have to lift, strain, balance or aim.
 
Safe and sturdy base
Uccello’s detachable water body vessel sits comfortably within a sturdy base that has the added safety of non-slip feet for further stability of pour.
 
Perfectly positioned handle
The positioning and shape of the ergonomically designed Uccello handle means weight is distributed across the entire arm, not on fingers & wrists, which makes it easier to handle comfortably.
 
Easy-touch lid
While most kettles require that you awkwardly lift and hold open the spout while refilling, the Uccello’s one-touch-to-open hinged lid, requires the lightest of touches to tap open or close.
 
Tapered Spout
From first to last drop of boiling water, the tapered design of the spout ensures water is targeted to the same spot every time, without the splashing, inconsistency or lack of control experienced with ordinary kettle pours.
 
Elegant Yet Practical Design
The black and white contrast design of the Kettle colours helps individuals with low visibility differentiate the important parts of the Kettle, including the easy-touch lid button. This elegant feature is also a safety feature.
 
Peace of mind
With so much peace-of-mind – including a wide opening for easy filling, quiet boiling and auto shut-off protection from overheating – Uccello brings you the next level in safe, elegant and effortless assistive technology.

The idea for the Uccello Kettle came about in early 2011 after founder and innovator Andy De Petra was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, a rare form of the condition. What began as an idea to invent a kettle to overcome the limited options available for people with arthritis soon became a much larger project that has been recognised by Assistive Technology Suppliers Australasia (ATSA) and Drive DeVilbiss UK.

THE KETTLE’S HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Italian-born Andy De Petra came to Australia at a young age, bringing with him an inherent knowledge of quality craftsmanship and design, and a love for coffee. As a young man, Andy was driven by inventing and innovating. As he entered his working life he lent his passions to business ideas and products, including designing a vertical blind cleaner that he used in his own cleaning business.

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

Diagnosed with arthritis in 2011 it became a challenge for Andy to complete everyday tasks. Frustrated with the difficulty lifting a kettle full of water to make his morning coffee he turned his thoughts to others in similar situations and questioned how they managed their physical disablements. On finding that there were no options, he focused his efforts on designing a kettle that would ease the struggle and enable people to maintain their independence. Reflecting its resemblance to a small bird along with the fluid motion when pouring, the Kettle was named ‘uccello’, Italian for bird.

MOVING FORWARD

With the help of his son-in-law, Andy began to promote the final product. The functionality of the Kettle combined with it’s sleek and modern design saw it gain interest, but there were a number of obstacles to overcome first. “We wanted to make sure the manufacturer would produce a high-quality kettle.” Finding the right manufacturer and distributors for the Kettle proved key to the move into the UK market and in 2016 Uccello joined with Drive DeVilbiss (formerly Drive Medical). The company has continued to gain momentum, with other nations keen to discover the Uccello Kettle for themselves.
