[Review] Viomi - Smart Kettle (V-SK152B) XEGG.REVIEW

Hello Mi Community,

All Mi Fans probably heard about the legendary Mi kettle. Many don't know Viomi is the one who designed it.



Most Mi gadgets are collaborations between Xiaomi and their Mi Home (Mijia) Ecosystem partners.
Viomi received investments from Xiaomi and got a big share in delivering Xiaomi branded devices.
Besides both Mi Kettles (Smart & non smart) this company is responsible for all Mi water purifiers and the Mi water filter pitcher while more products are on its way.

It doesn't stop there..
Viomi Technology Co Ltd is Nasdaq listed and got over 60+ product lines.
Developed their own ecosystem (Iot@home) and APP to control all smart products.
Some of these products also work with Xiaomi's Mi Home App.



In China, over 1,700,000 households own at least one of Viomi's branded devices.
Viomi's products include smart refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, robot vacuum cleaners, home security devices and much more!
To learn more about Viomi's own smart home solutions you can check:
X-EGG vol.4 & vol.5 article on Miui forum.
or visit Viomi.com.

Now it's time to talk about the actual product

Viomi Smart Kettle: V-SK152B
This Smart kettle goes by the modelname: V-SK152
There are two versions
V-SK152A = White color (Not available yet)
V-SK152B = Black color

The China model goes by the name:
YM-K1503




Unboxing
The box is completely designed in Viomi's own housestyle.


Contains:
1x Smart Kettle
1x Powerbase
1x Manual

Design

Kettle:




A minimalistic but very eye-catching shape.
As you can see the body of the smart kettle is black and fabricated out of one piece.
It covers the 304 stainless steel container.
The steel ring that's visible on top is actually the outer side of the container.





The inner container has a Max capacity of 1.5 liters.
Thanks to its premium use of materials it should have a strong insulation.



A comfortable handle is attached for having a great grip.
On the handle you notice a OLED Screen (Digital indicator) that displays the water temperature.
Underneath there are two buttons: Boil and warm.
On top of the handle you will find a physical button which opens the lid.


Powerbase:



A round shaped lightweight Powerbase with 3 sturdy bumpons to keep the Smart kettle on it's place.
There is a +- 72 cm cord attached with a European plug.


Specs




Mi Home APP + Installation process

The Viomi Smart Kettle can be installed on Xiaomi's Mi Home App.
You can pair it through Bluetooth.
Since this is the EU version of the Kettle, be sure to use EU region within Mi home app




Features

4 Insulation modes
The Kettle comes with 4 insulation modes. You can select these by pressing the 'Warm’ button.

1.Milk powder (50°C)
2. Baby Rice Flour (70°C)
3. White Tea (80°C)
4. Coffee (90°C)


App control:
The preset modes can also be selected within the Mijia (Mi Home) APP.



The advantage of using the app is the fact you can customize the temperature to your own preferences between 40° and 90° Celsius




Smart temperature control:
Within Mi Home it is possible to keep the water on a temperature of choice for 12 hours.

This can be done in 2 ways.
1 Heat the water to a specific temperature.
2. Boil the water first and let it cool down to a desired temperature .







Extend heating program:
When you use the temperature control feature (for example: 80°C, for 2 hours).
Choose 'Extended warm up' in the APP to reset 2 hour timer to 0 by lifting the Kettle out of the powerbase and place it back.




Safety protection:


The heating technology inside the Kettle comes from the British company Strix,
who is world leader in Kettle controls and guarantees safety at all costs.
The Smart Kettle will automatically turn off when water is boiled.
Whenever there is no or less water detected it will cut off.
You don't have to worry about getting an electric shock as the power connector will prevent it.





In Use


Fast, sturdy & well isolated!
Boiling 1.5L water on 1800W takes about 5 minutes while the sound is pretty good isolated.
If I compare it with my 2250W 'dumb’ kettle it was a little bit slower.
On the other side much less noise and not moving a millimeter (Dumb kettle starts shaking).
Lifting the Smart Kettle by its handle is an easy task and pouring water into a cup is child's play.



I can touch the kettle without burning my fingers, safety first!


Easy Bluetooth pairing
Connecting the kettle to Mi home over Bluetooth is fast and you just need to press one button.
The only improvement I would love to see is not to reconnect as much as I need now.
For example when im too far away from the kettle, connection will be lost.
After opening the Mi home app and select the kettle i need to re-connect by pressing the button again.




Great for Tea drinkers!

The warming options are very useful to me.
My family love's drinking tea in the morning.
I let it boil and within the app I keep it warm on 80°c while I'm preparing myself for work and my son for school.

Parents with Baby's would love this!
We are expecting a 2nd child.
Instead of purchasing a bottle warmer for a temporary period or
using the microwave this Smart Kettle will serve me well.
Why need another device if one can do it all?
It will also save some space on the kitchen counter!

Where to buy?
Since this is the EU version you won't find this model on Youpin, Tmall, JD etc.
Viomi's official authorized sellers (Warranty) are Ebay, Banggood & more will come.
