I used to have a tea pot on the stove all the time. Then I got an electric kettle. Changed everything. I don’t have to listen to that whistling when it hits the boil and this is an efficient use of energy, as it heats the water faster than the stove ever did. This is a great way to heat up water that you’re going to use for a stock or sauce. It cleans well and the Breville brand is one of my favorites.
