Many of us have used electric kettles in the past to heat water. They are not always energy efficient. The MIITO is an elegant solution that lets you heat just the amount of liquid that you need, so there is no energy waste to deal with. It works with cups, bowls, glass, teapots, and any other non-ferrous vessel. Just add some water, put your cup onto the induction base, and put the heating rod in the liquid.
The MIITO heats your water in a more efficient fashion. It is easy to use and safe since the top of the base stays cool. You can find out more information on Kickstarter.
