I spent a week visiting my “Fairy Godmother” last Christmas and New Year’s, and I fell in love with her electric kettle. In about a minute it can boil water for tea. I ordered one on Amazon before I even returned home, and I’ve been using it ever since.
I saw a post the other day on LifeHacker about making perfect rice by toasting the rice and boiling the water separately. Once I transition back to conventional foods, I know I’ll be using my kettle to make rice, too.
