A few years back, justice like this wouldn’t have been possible in Iraq Corruption doesn’t matter

Kettles

March 15th, 2009 at 07:40pm

Why is it that kettle manufacturers can make kettles that heat the water to any number of different temperatures, but are yet to make a “single cup capacity” kettle?

I would have thought that in this age of everyone running around trying to conserve energy, the kettle manufacturers would have worked out that there are many kettles which are only ever used to boil enough water for one cup, and that it is not only more energy efficient to boil just the amount of water that you intend to use, but that a smaller kettle requires less material to build.

Update: Reader Valerio points out by email that Tefal and Powergen have produced kettles which are similar to “single cup” kettles. Hippyshopper reviewed them back in 2007 (wow, I’m nearly two years late on this!). Video of the review below.

End Update

Back to kettles that heat water to a number of different temperatures, it would appear that Breville have decided that water for coffee should be heated to 95°C. Sorry but I disagree…water for coffee should be boiled.
