Tea Kettle

The shimmering water wavers as heat hurries to the surface, escaping in bubbles that burst into a fountain of flowing steam. You stand motionless, waiting for the water to be ready for your morning's coffee, which is traditionally tempting to you, but is being bullied by the basic basket of assorted afternoon teas that sits on your counter collecting dust. You fall into a trance, caught between the usual black and the flavored orange surprise. Don't stand still too long or else your boiling water will become a new cloud in the sky. The word kettle originates from Latin catillus, which in various contexts is translated as bowl, deep dish, or funnel. A kettle is probably the most ancient kind of metal cooking utensil. Common materials were wrought iron and pressed steel plate. Electric kettles are normally constructed of durable plastic or steel (with a plastic handle) and powered by mains electricity. In modern designs, once the water has reached boiling, the kettle automatically deactivates to prevent the water boiling away and damaging the heating element.
