I decided to upgrade to an electric kettle this week, a detail I remembered as it burst into flames on the gas stove.

LPT: Never use the kettle from your hotel room, you have no idea what it is used for.
My brother works in a hotel in Amsterdam, and he comes home with the craziest stories.
He told me that guests almost exclusively use the kettle for other purposes then making tea.
The kettle is frequently used to cook rice, warm up small towels and clean/wash underwear.
A lot of hotels don’t expect guests to do this (and aren’t aware of this behavior) and don’t ‘deep’ clean the kettles.
For your own personal hygiene, avoid using the kettles in hotel rooms.

LPT: When boiling anything on the stove (like pasta), use an electric kettle for the water and then pour it in your pot. It's faster and way more efficient.

My cost breakdown of owning a kettle for 1 year
Hi everyone, I got a kettle last year. Before getting her, I extensively researched how much they would cost over their lifetime, what unexpected costs may occur etc to make sure I could financially be responsible. Now that I have had a kettle from new -> 1 year I thought I'd share my costs!
£9.99 - cost of the kettle from Argos - Cookworks White - https://www.argos.co.uk/product/6992277
£0.025 per boil @ 730 boils per year
Covid-19 really threw expectations out of whack. I've been averaging 8 boils per day since March as I now "work" from home. Working generally consists of playing Red Alert 2 online, and making cups of tea.
£18 - 6 boils per day extra for 4 months
£0 - limescale
Total for 1 year: £46.25
Thoughts: Whilst I did not expect the limescale build up, the aesthetics do not bother me in the slightest and though it may add some cost to the boiling I have not consider removal yet. Perhaps something for me to bui

Found this kettle someone was getting rid of. Any idea why there's a weird bottom to it, instead of just being flat? Seems like it would be more difficult to balance on a stove top.

It needs to be compulsory to have A kettle in the room in a B&B. I've only encountered kettleless rooms a couple of times, but the experience still traumatises me.
And no, it is not OK to expect a guest to use the kitchen kettle.

What else besides tea making do y’all use an electric kettle for?
Just read an article that most of the world is appalled that we Americans heat up water in microwaves. We’re not tea drinkers the way Brits are so for most of us when we do need a hot cup of water which is rare we use the microwave. It’s usually when we’re sick. Of course there’s tea drinkers here but it’s not by any means like how it is for Brits. I honestly didn’t even know electric kettles existed till like a year ago. So besides tea making what else do y’all use the electric kettles for? Like why do the people in this article think we need an appliance for that we’re rarely gonna use?
Do you own an electric kettle, do you eat boiled veggies& do you drink instant coffee?
Read an article that the world is appalled we Americans boil water in the microwave& don’t own electric kettles. We’re not really tea drinkers so why do we need electric kettles I thought. I went on AskaBrit &overwhelmingly the answer was besides tea- they boil vegetables &some instant coffee. Some Americans chimed in saying electric kettles are a thing. My question is do you own an electric kettle? Do you eat boiled vegetables? Do you drink instant coffee? I’m wondering is it just me or am I on par with most Americans.
A month ago our kettle broke, so we replaced it with a nice brand new glassy one with a fancy blue light when it's heating. It's now got a lovely layer of limescale creeping up the glass.

Not how I planned my cake day, but after power was knocked out in my city following a giant fuck-off windstorm, this is my kettle today.
It took 4 hours and turning on the kettle 5 times, but I finally have some goddamn tea.
Drinking it still hot is definitely an unrealistic goal, but at least now I have the comforting companionship of a "warm" beverage for the next 6 hours.

Looking for a good electric kettle
I never thought it would be so hard to find a decent electric kettle to replace ours, but man.
Looking for something that is reliable, has selectable temperature, and no plastic in contact with the hot water, and preferably less than $100.
Does anyone here have a recommendation? Thanks!
EDIT: Went with the OXO. Thank you everyone for the quick replies and suggestions!

I secretly want my tea kettle to die so I can buy a fancier one
I feel bad because this bad boy has been a real work horse. I bought it at a garage sale back in 2014 before I started college and it's been with me ever since. Today it wasn't working and I got excited that I could finally get a nicer one with temp controls but after being poked at it started up again. It may out live me.
Edit: I love that everyone is just like "trash it and follow your dreams!" I'll probably keep it around a bit longer, I'm just too cheap to justify a new one.
Finally got to Devil's Kettle last week!
I’ve been searching everywhere for this particular vintage Kamenstein tea kettle that my late grandmother used to keep on her stove before she passed. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can find one?

Is the average Briton not concerned with limescale on the kettle?
I know it's completely harmless to drink water from a kettle that has limescale, but when it gets to the point that your cuppa is being served with visible scales/flakes of calcium it looks gross to me, but everyone I met seems indiferent to it.
At home I'm always the one empting the kettle after using it (and making sure no one else needs hot water) and then de-scaling once per quarter.

Ss Brewtech or Spike Brewing for a 20 gal. kettle?
Hey guys, I'm going to upgrade my system from a 5 gallon setup to a 20 gallon BIAB system.
I've been debating for a couple of weeks which kettle should I go for. I've seen that Ss Brewtech is very good but very expensive cause of the brand name, but I really like all the attachments and possibilities they offer.
On the other side I've seen only positive comments for the Spike Brewing stuff and that they are top quality.
Which one would you recommend and why? Also would you guys recommend using Reflectix (as an insulator) to mash in the same kettle?

Rereading Midnight Tides and I found an exchange between Ruin and Kettle about her parentage I didn't take in first time around (or recognise the relevance of).
So her mother was Eres'al and her father may have been from any time so could have been either Trull or Bottle or someone else entirely. Blew my mind little bit.
Is there a definite answer to who her dad is?
Did a rack and a half of pork ribs on the kettle yesterday. 5 hour cook. Perfect. 3 different rubs and sauces.
