If you do not have an electric kettle, you need one! These things come in handy for so many things besides the obvious of making hot water for tea, coffee and hot chocolate. I use mine to make hot water to pour into recipes instead of using the stove or microwave.
It is also great for making hot water for foot baths (mix with cold though) and other things too. I have gotten a TON of use out of the one I bought years ago.
Go here to grab it in red or orange at the $12.99 price
