I have two electric kettles, one is for utility purposes… it hits 212 then shuts off and that’s all it does..
It works fine to boil eggs assuming you don’t just kerplunk the eggs in…
Cooking boiled eggs in an electric kettle is ok, scrambled eggs, not so much…
It’s also used for masala tea since it has a built in strainer… it’s glass so I can see where all the cloves and other spices are when I clean it..
It works as a hot water heater for dishes… which are done in the sink, not the kettle..
all other cleaning chores, personal, industrial and household involve cold water..
It’s a humidifier, steamer and ramen machine… I haven’t gotten around to ravioli yet or dim sum… but will at some point, just because I think it’s funny..
Make do is a hold over from dorm life, cramped space, poverty and living in sketchy hotels that ban cooking… Besides that, I like to keep my weirdo skills sharp… cause ya never know..
I’m also a fan of using sticks and and hot rocks as cooking equipment.. But we all have our quirks no?
I blame the coming zombie apocalypse… but I’m ready.
