Electric Tea Kettle

I’m not a fan of cooking with electricity, but this is one electric appliance that we use 3-4 times a day, every day of the year. It heats water to tea or coffee (or hot water bottle) temperature in a flash. Our first one lasted maybe 6 years, and we replaced it. While waiting for the new one, it was a drag to have to wait for the kettle to boil on the gas stove. It’s called the Chef’s Choice 685 International Deluxe Cordless Electric Teakettle: https://bit.ly/5vtm3U

Another one that gets good reviews is the Breville SK500XL Ikon Cordless 1.7-Liter Stainless-Steel Electric Kettle: https://bit.ly/4xQLHb
