When I sold my house in 2019 I got rid of just about everything I owned...so buying something to bring back into my life is a big deal and it has to essential. I fought with myself to make this purchase because I have a stove, I have a microwave...I can make hot water easy enough. OR so I thought...I had a moment of weakness when, after a conversation with a friend who has one of these electric tea kettles, I did a quick search and bought this beauty.

It was only $20 and seemed to have some safety features that were handy.  My Hamilton Beach Electric Kettle turns itself off when the water is too low, it turns its self off when you take it off the base, and once it gets to temperature.  It looks nice since it stainless steel outside and in, with no glass I could break. Honestly, it was the fact it seemed so intent on turning itself off when it was done that made me click buy.

What a great little addition. It is so much quicker than my old microwave and the stove and much easier too. Best $20 spent.I will add that I was not paid for this review. I made this purchase on my own and just had to share that I think it is awesome. Darn, I wish I felt as warm and fuzzy about my InstantPot.
