Have you ever put the kettle on, walked away and then an hour later realised you never had that cup of tea you wanted? This is something I would do however I have a whistling kettle which never lets you forget. They may take longer ( a great deal longer) to boil but you will never forget to make that cup of tea.
The kettle we have is on its way out, so the search for a new one begins. This 1930's style kettle from Picquotware is stunning, a thing of beauty. I need it in my life. However I am not sure I could keep it as shinny and streak free as the design deserves it to be....the search will continue and I will just dream about this one.
