Is it better to empty the kettle or is wasting water worse than using excessive leccy?

My wife ALWAYS fills the bloody kettle, this morning I wanted a cup of tea but was in two minds as to pour away an almost full kettle and leave enough for one cup or to boil the whole thing. Waste water or waste electricity?

Anyone else's family have a weird obsession with 'fresh' water only in the kettle?

By fresh I don't mean versus salt water. I mean has it been sitting in the kettle for more than 1 second. Scenario: Making a nice Christmas eve morning cuppa, waters already in the kettle. So I flick that bad boy on. In walks my old man "Is that FRESH water?!". Me: 'I didn't put it in there'. So he proceeds to empty the kettle and fill it back up again.

Very wasteful if you ask me.

Edit -- Wow some great insight here. Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Holidays/GettingDrunk whateveer you're up to stay safe my dudes.

[Fluff] I unintentionally taught my dog to turn on the tea kettle

I have an electric tea kettle and since it's just me my dog and my lizards in the house and because of covid i dont see very many people I've kinda just started talking to my dog extra and well I drink alot of tea so I say " I think I'll have some tea" hes started jumping up on the counter and pressing the switch thingy on the tea kettle down with his nose and boiling the water for me guess hes seen me get up and press it down enough times but I think it's cute and funny and a good trick to show my friends once this lockdown is over

Kettle Etiquette?

It’s considered poor form to make yourself a hot beverage and not offer others, this I understand. If however you’re making β€œfood” from the kettle such as a pot noodle colleagues should not expect a cup of tea or coffee? Am I right?

Electric Kettle dead

My Mega Chef electric kettle just died at exactly the 3 year mark. Pretty much daily use. I think the switch is bad. I got lucky as most bad reviews are showing their switch died at 1 year.

Is there a BIFL version of an electric kettle? Or all Made in China disposable crap?

I really love how fast/efficient they boil water and not interested in stove top.

EDIT: This will be used for pour over coffee 99% of time! Potentially looking at ones with temp control.

Using electric kettle to sterilize the cup

This problem has been posted before but I didn't get a satisfactory answer and would love to resolve this issue. So I am planning to buy a menstrual cup for the first time. The only issue is that I have no idea how I will sterilize it. I live in a college dorm so using a pot is not an option. We don't have a dorm kitchen for students here. There is a microwave but it doesn't work properly and I don't want to break it. So my only option is to somehow use an electric kettle. There are menstrual cup sterilizers too but that seems rather expensive as compared to a 1.5-liter electric kettle. How do I protect the cup from the bottom? For context, I am in India.

I would really appreciate it if I can resolve this issue somehow!!

After relying on instant hot water for my entire life, I am finally able to have a tea kettle!

I just moved to an apartment with no drinkable hot water dispenser, which is something I've always had access to and have taken for granted my entire life. I got a ceramic tea kettle secondhand and I feel like the process of getting hot water is much more personal.

I guess it's something that's easy to overlook, especially when you're busy all the time. It's so instant, so quick, you stop thinking about it being "hot" water and just think about it being water. Just push the button and the hot water is ready for you. I've never had a kettle before or even thought about having a kettle before because why would you need one when theres the dispenser right there? And forget about ever using one at work or outside of the house. You can get hot water for free anywhere and you dont have to wait for it.

Putting the kettle on the stove and letting it boil has allowed me to slow down, to be patient. I'm so used to instant everything and really living that "grab and go" lifestyle that I've forgotten what it's like to enjoy the process of making something yourself. I actually look forward to using my kettle more.
