Well, my news is old news but what the hey..........I find my electric kettle to be a lifesaver........and not just for a hot cuppa either.......we tend to have no hot water from time to time and if you take a daily bath (shower you can forget) at least you can draw a quick liter or quart of hot water to mix in with the cold and have a quick wash-up and a shave....if you have several pans of hot water going along with the kettle then you can then have a semblance of a warm bath.....have washed long hair many times these past 3 years thanks to the electric kettle and pans of hot water.......also, if you have to add water to a recipe that is already hot you should add hot water, that's where having a hot kettle is nice or if you're making a roux for Cajun dishes........I always add hot water from an electric kettle to smooth it out..........the automatic turn off switch is well worth the investment.......if I have wee beasties in my foodstuffs and I don't want them scattering to the highlands I heat up the "cauldron" and pour hot water over them........kills anything and everything and in just minutes......the pour spout is far better than a pan.......I think that a warm button is a great idea but I don't have that feature.........no, they are not cheap but they have been useful for me and well worth it......it's of course a personal choice
