Like an electric tea pot. Or, more specifically, my new Capresso H2O Plus, glass, cordless, safety kettle.
Gone are the days of going to the creek for water, building up the fire and waiting for the pot to boil.
Okay, I never had to go to a creek or even prime a well. And, while as a Girl Scout I built a pretty good fire, the flames were better suited for making S'mores than boiling water. In all honesty the only water I boil is for tea. It's not that big a deal. What is a big deal, is the fact that I often turn on the wrong burner. I've been known to turn the back burner up to high, under the empty tea kettle. Maybe others have done have done something similar ... once. Let me just say I've done it more than that.

Today, I noticed that how quickly I can go from ho hum to woohoo.
