What is a electric kettle?
An electric kettle is a kettle that runs on electricity. Most of them have a digital display that lets you see the time and temperature. You turn the switch on and then wait for the kettle to boil. It will turn itself off after it’s boiled the water. If you want to turn it off manually, you just pull the plug out.
The electric kettle was invented in the 1970s by an engineer called George Jung, who wanted to create a kettle that could run on electricity instead of gas. The kettle was a big hit and electric kettles are now the most popular kind of kettle.
There are also automatic electric kettles that automatically stop boiling when they reach the desired temperature. They can be found with either a traditional or modern design. Electric kettles can easily fit into any kitchen because their size makes them easy to store away. Here are some things you should know about using your electric kettle:
- You don’t need to use special cleaning products when cleaning your electric kettle. All you need is warm water and dishwashing liquid.
- If you leave your electric kettle plugged in overnight, turn it off in the morning.
- Use a rubber ring to protect the faucet from getting damaged when you’re filling up your kettle.
- Never fill your kettle all the way up. Always put less than half full.
- Always unplug your electric kettle before storing it.
