We recently acquired a few kitchen gadgets through a little event called our wedding. Josh had been wanting the Breville electronic water kettle for a while. This was a tough sell for me. Some kitchen gadgets seem entirely execessive to me - why do you need a garlic press when you have a knife? I was hesitant about the kettle - we already have a pot that boils water just fine, thank you.
But this kettle is the most convenient thing ever. It boils water in record time - about 2 minutes. It's electric and turns off once the water is heated. So you don't have to worry about water boiling over on the stove in the morning when you're in the bathroom blowdrying your hair or whatever. I'm sold.
And, I now drink tea (decaf) twice a day because it's just that easy. I feel so healthy already.
