I'm curious. Do you have an electric kettle?


When I was working in NY (c.20 years ago!) nobody had a kettle (well, one or two had one that went on the hob and whistled when done). Was that pretty normal? Is that still the case?

No British home is complete without an electric kettle. I got chatting with someone about tea and coffee, then UK and US differences and kettles came up and it's got me curious.

  • Yes, I have a Black & Decker one that I use several times a day and I love it! I use cold processed coffee instead of a traditional coffee maker (the coffee is so so so so much better!) so I use it to boil water and add to the cup.

  • LOL I was born in Iowa, but I think I'd fit in nicely with the Brits.

  • I've looked at getting one, but a stove-top kettle is working for me for now. This winter may be a different story.

  • Yes, we have one, but we only use it in the camper to save on propane. At home, it's easy enough to use the kettle & stove, plus it is just easier to clean my glass kettle than it would be to wash the electric kettle all the time.
