I wont tell you how great the kettle heat the water because it is a kettle
But instead will show you how this smart device can be used in many other then tee, coffee warmer.
So let you first tell you why I bought this kettle.
I have a boy – 1 month old and I needed to warm the breast milk.
i went to local baby store and bought some milk warmer for EUR 50 (most expensive in the shop).
Anyway at home I decided to test it first so I follow the instructions and started the warmer with a baby bottle inside.
After program completed the bottle was too hot so I checked the temp.
It was 55 degree! When it should not be higher then 40!
Anyway I returned the warmer to the shop and the way to home I remember that a friend of mine have this Mi Kettle.
I know that the Kettle has smart temperature control so I borrowed it for a test.
To access Mi Kettle you need to download Mi Home app from google play.
Also you need to make Xiaomi account (if you don’t already).
First time you start the app it ask you for Locale you NEED to choose China mainland.
After that click on the + (add) button (you’ll phone Bluetooth must be ON).
Your Mi Kettle should be there (sorry it;s in Chinese language but have pics
After selecting the device you’ll have to confirm pairing with holding the smart button (2) on the Kettle for 3sec.
This is the right time to mention that Button 1 is for boiling only.
Button 2 is smart button. It starts the program set in Mi Home app.
A sound confirms pairing.
After that you’ll see this:
With the upper slider you can set how long the Kettle will hold the desired temperature from 1 to 12 hours!
Bellow you can set the temperature with tap on the pic or using the slider.
The two curves on the bottom are temperature curves.
If you choose the first one the Kettle will rise the temp to boiling temp and after that will leave it cool to desired temp.
It useful for some king of tees.
Anyway I prefer the second curve.
In that mode Kettle rise the tem to desired and holding this temp for desired time.
So in my case I wanted to warm the milk so I fill the Mi Kettle to the minimum level with water and I put the plastic bag with milk inside.
I used the pic with baby bottle (50 degree) and leave it for exact 2:30min.
The temp of the milk was perfect!
i was really exited what else i can do with this device.
So I decide to make a poached egg.
I knew that the perfect temp for this type of cooking is 75 degree.
So I took one XXL egg:
Put it in foil, started the Mi Kettle and when it reached 75 degree I put the egg inside for 15min.
What was the result?
The perfect poached egg
Beside eggs you can cook anything because the Kettle is just like Sous-vide
The cons are:
– Cant start the Kettle from the phone
– Xiaomi should include build-in small battery to keep the Bluetooth connection even when the kettle is not on the stand.
