A Gadget I Actually Like!

kettleDH bought a new kettle yesterday. We’ve been talking about this for a while but neither of us has done anything about it so while I was at the spa he ordered one online. Of course, it’s not just a normal kettle that boils water, that would be far too boring. DH likes his technology to come with new-fangled functions and settings that I either a) can’t figure out; b) don’t need or c) forget to use. However, on this occasion, he has done very well indeed.

It’s sleek, matches the kitchen and you can set the temperature so you can make coffee without scalding the beans and green or white tea that isn’t bitter. Traditionally, the only way to do this was boil the kettle then wait a bit, or guess by the rumbling noise that it was hot enough but not too hot. This is what new gadgets should be – simple and useful. The very best do something that you didn’t know you needed, but once you have it you can’t manage without it. Why don’t all kettles do this?

The clever bit.
