(Enter RADISHN’T, MOTHMAN MISATO, BOIMG FROG and CATS’N RAINCOATS, stage left. They are having a HEATED DISCUSSION.)

RADISHN’T: Prithee, which one of you had planned to tell

Of diff’rent flavours gained by simple act

Of brewing tea with water hot, not cold?

MOTHMAN: Egad! you poured the water cold? Wherefore?!

FROG: An answer from you, Radish, I must beg.

RADISHN’T: Indeed I did, dear friends - why does this shock?

Without the guide of others I assumed

That heat was merely added for the sake

Of expediting this solution’s brewing!

Half a decade I have spent, or more,

Not questioning this worldview I had made.

In fact, I am myself a bit surprised

That you might think that I, your dearest friend,

Might have a patience of sufficient stock

To wait until a pot of water boils.

FROG: Three minutes overtaxes patience so?

The microwave will beep when it is done!

CATS’N: My friend, this answer vexes me the more!

Can it be true that thou dost boil by nuke?!

FROG: Are you in turn, my friend, so shocked to know

That I have not the patience, like our Root,

To boil upon the stove our favour’d drink?

CATS’N: It takes less than a minute!

FROG: On what plate?

Perhaps your dinner cooks atop the sun?

CATS’N: How long can take your stove to fill the task

Of boiling but a single cup alone?

FROG: In minutes?

CATS’N: Yes!

FROG: I counted seven, once.

CATS’N: Perhaps you ought to have your timepiece checked!

If on a middle heat you place the cup

You soon will have the scalding drink you crave.

Two minutes, in a mug upon the plate

Or even less, if you should have a pot.

FROG: You cause me tears - is this how thou dost live?

You place upon the iron stove a mug?

A mug, ceramic, filled with water cold?

How do these flames, though medium in height,

Not shatter like a glass this fragile thing?

Surely, then, your kitchen is bewitched

With magicks far beyond the mortal ken!

(The FOUR realise they have wandered into the THRONE ROOM. The ROYAL COURT watches with fascination.)

KING: Ev’ry single person in this group

must be a fucking lunatic, it seems.

    To be honest I would use the microwave before I’d use the stove. Stove takes ages because it has to heat up the bottom of the mug before it actually starts transferring into the water.

    But holy shit guys. Kettles are literally designed for this purpose.

        Fuck yeah. Love me a @[email protected] vid. As a non-American, before I first saw that one, I didn’t even know microwaving water was a thing Americans did.

        But since seeing it, I now actually use my kettle to boil water for other purposes, like cooking pasta, too. It’s great. Both much faster, and also uses less water than my old method, which was pouring hot water out of my kitchen tap (which required waiting a long time and a lot of wasted cold water for the hot water to get through the pipes from the water heater to my kitchen), then pouring that into a pot, then putting the pot on the stove and bringing it the rest of the way to the boil.

          On one hand that thing is cool, on the other hand I don’t want to have to memorize a fucking Konami code to get it to dispense the right kind of liquid.

            It’s just pushing and turning. There’s no buttons on it or anything.

            I have one (though only for boiling water, not cold/filtered) and it’s really not difficult or complicated. I have friends with kids who have one and they know how to use it.

        This American uses an electric kettle. (Granted, I first had to use one in the UK to understand its glory.)

        Y’all catching up on kettles like it’s 1995 instead of getting your boiling water directly from the tap 😂

      I used to use the microwave because I was a kid and my family didnt have one of those fancy electric kettles. But then I moved to Ireland and never again can I live without one.

      My microwave takes 80s, my kettle takes at least double that.

      I use the kettle a lot for pre-boiling water for soups far more than using it for tea, unless I’m making 2+ cups.

        Honestly some comments I saw made me think people were actually doing that, yeah.

        But me? No. Like I said, I use a kettle, that’s what it’s designed for.

        I did used to boil a pot of water on my stove, for things like cooking pasta. But these days I even boil that in my kettle before transferring it to the pot.

          I am decades old. And I just figured out I could use my kettle to boil pasta water faster.
