Changes Over the Years in the Electric Tea kettle

Aug 17, 2007
The electric kettle certainly has changed since Arthur Leslie Large first invented it in 1922. His amazing new kettle, one that plugged in instead of having to use the heating element on the stove, was a step in technology that made making tea so much easier. There was less crowding on the stove in an area when the dishes were kept on the stove so they would stay warm until mealtime. The kettle could sit on the counter and be used even when there was a meal being made on the stove. Doing one thing no longer meant you could not do the other. A few years later, in 1930, another advance was made with the introduction of an automatic cut-out. This safety feature was much appreciated since it kept the water from potentially boiling away if the person became distracted and forgets about the boiling kettle. The next big step came in 1959 when the classic style of kettle appeared. Known as the K2 is was the next step in this product's development.

Since then the electric kettle has continued to evolve, with additional enhancements making its use easier than ever. Kettles have changed in size and shape, making them an indispensable part of the average kitchen. There are small ones for people living alone or large ones to meet the needs of a family of tea or coffee drinkers. There are even cordless electric models now. These kettles sit on a heating element that is plugged into the wall. The kettle sits on it until it boils and then is lifted off to pour the water and returned until needed the next time.

But this is not the only advance the electric kettles have made. Recently a new kettle was invented in Britain that is designed to make better use of electricity. It can easily be filled up, though of course one can fill it partially if that is a person's preference. But the kettle is made to give the user the opportunity to take a full kettle and siphon off lesser into a special compartment so that it only boils as little as the person wants. The premise is that this way the customers can save thirty percent in power usage. Some think it is a great idea; they see new technology at work. Others wonder why a person would not simply fill the kettle only as far as they need to.
