The Thermite Kettle

UK based inventor Austin Houldsworth is in the process of perfecting ‘The fastest tea equipment on earth‘.

“The ‘Thermite Kettle’ is a single use kettle. The heating elements within the kettle contain thermite, which is a combination of iron oxide and aluminium powder in a ratio of 8:3. It burns at 2500 degrees. Once lit the resulting exothermic reaction boils the water rapidly, for an extremely fast cup of tea.“

Safety note: Thermite is more usually employed in high-temperature industrial tasks such as welding together rail-tracks, and should generally be avoided in a domestic setting.
