Back to the Roots

After I moved to my new appartement I decided to go back to the roots. Although I have a great Italian coffee machine I am using it very rare and having my coffee the "Turkish style" - coffee powder, hot water, milk, that's all. For boiling water I used in the past 6 years an electric water kettle which is widely known and popular here in Germany. But I still remembered the good old times of a normal water kettle I used on the stove top before my "electric-experiment" and decided to bring them back. I bought the cheapest one for around € 10 with a capacity of 1 quart and it does a really good job. It takes a little bit longer to bring your water boiling but it has something magic for me. The sound of the gas oven, the few minutes longer you wait for your water and the sound of the kettle whistling makes a perfect start into the day for me. I bought two very expensive electric kettles of a good European brand in the last 6 years and if I had known they will break down, I would safe that money. Now I am back to the roots.

Update 6th Oct. 2012: I do not own this water kettle anymore. I gave it to my parents because it works on an induction stove top and I bought myself an Italian water kettle by Alessi (Alessi 9093 "Bird"), designed by Michael Graves - Here's the link to the Alessi Website. I LOVE IT ;)
