6 Reasons To Use An Electric Kettle
We need hot water more often than we realize. With an electric kettle, it’s never a problem. Not only does this compact and handy appliance make boiling water easy, but it also does the job quickly.
The Smeg kettle is tried and tested to boil 500 ml of water in 1.5 minutes, that’s several times faster than using a stovetop or a microwave so you save time. When you’re able to heat water rapidly, a lot of tasks become simpler.
If you don’t have a Smeg kettle yet, here are a few good reasons for you to get one.
If you use a French press or the pour-over brewing method for your coffee, you won’t need to wait too long for your hot water if you have a kettle. Or maybe you prefer tea or hot chocolate? Whatever your staple drink may be, the Smeg kettle makes it easier for you to have a serving. It can deliver your hot water even before you finish getting your mug out of the cupboard.
2. Meals in a jiffy
Boiling water in a Smeg kettle and pouring it into a pot is a great time saver because it jumpstarts the boiling process and raises the temperature faster. This is a good trick for bringing a large amount of water to boil. You can apply this when you get impatient while sous-vide cooking or preparing pasta. On days when you can’t be bothered to play chef and can only accommodate just-add-hot-water ramen, rice meal, or oatmeal in your menu, having a Smeg kettle can be very convenient too.
3. Home Remedies
Hot water has healing powers. When you have body aches and pains, a hot compress or hot water bottle is frequently recommended. After a long day of errands, a nice warm foot soak can soothe your tired muscles. And when you have a congested sinus, steam inhalation is the solution. When you’re not feeling so well, you’d want relief as fast as possible, you wouldn’t have the patience to stand around too long waiting for your hot water. You won’t have to do that if you have a Smeg kettle.
4. Housekeeping hacks
Boiling water is the key to several quick fixes around the house. To unclog a drain, flush it with boiling water. To sanitize utensils, toys, and pretty much anything, dip in boiling water. To remove stubborn stains and hardened dirt, soak in boiling water. You can do all these in a flash with a Smeg kettle.
5. Safer option
Using an electric kettle is safer than any other method of boiling water, it saves you from having to deal with open flames or hot surfaces. The Smeg kettle has features that make it practically accident-proof. It automatically switches off and the power lever clicks back to its original position once the water boils, so no spillage. Its soft-open lid protects you from hot water splashes or a sudden release of steam. Its anti-slip base keeps it secured firmly so it doesn’t easily tip over. Its spout is fitted with a stainless steel filter so your drinks are always clear of sediments.
6. Energy-saving appliance
Because a Smeg kettle can boil 500 ml of water in 1.5 minutes, faster than stovetops or a microwave, you save on your electricity bill. And because, unlike other kettles, Smeg’s heating element is concealed, the formation of limescale is prevented. So even physical energy is saved from having to clean the stubborn chalky buildup of calcium carbonate from water.
Having a Smeg kettle is very practical and makes life better in many ways. It’s a huge bonus that they’re so stylish so you don’t have to just keep them in the kitchen. The 50s-designed Smeg kettle can add character to any surface, even your work desk. It is available in black, cream, red, pink, pastel blue, and pastel green, so you can choose to go dainty, vibrant, or sophisticated.
