Red Dot: Best of the Best

Tradition in a new form

The classic thermal jug is part of the inventory in any well-managed household. As an expansion of the WMF CoffeeTime & TeaTime ranges, the Impulse thermal jug fascinates with its innovative stainless steel design and environmentally neutral plastics. In so doing, its form ties in with tradition. The bulged and curved shape of the base invokes traditional and well-proven jug designs, while the lid showcases a more linear and purist look. In line with the logic of this intention, the jug promotes an array of functional and technically sophisticated detail. Therefore, in the metal version, the spout is smoothly formed out of the stainless steel shell, while a voluminously designed handle makes the jug ideal to hold. The vessel is thus ideally well balanced in any position and, no matter how full they are, makes pouring effortless. In addition, the large twist-off lid makes opening and filling easier. The pouring mechanism is triggered by one touch. The signet button on the lid feels pleasant to the touch and the mechanism stops warmth from being lost. The easily interchangeable glass insert is another highly useful function as it keeps the contents warm for over 12 hours or cold for up to 24 hours. Based on an inspired design, the familiar thermal jug has thus seen a highly convincing reinterpretation – form and function of Impulse make a good impression every day anew.

Statement by the jury

»The Impulse thermal jug catches the eye with its timeless design. Its consistent development is convincing in terms of both form and functionality. Boasting high user comfort, the jug is easy to use and sports a pouring mechanism that is particularly fascinating. It keeps the temperature of both warm and cold contents for a remarkably long time and is very easy to fill. Elegant in every respect, this thermal jug is an enrichment to any household.«
