As we are tea drinkers in this house an electric kettle is a priority. So imagine my distress when it stopped working on Thursday. Dh is an electrician so I had him look at it and it was something to do with the connection when we sit it on the stand as it was a cordless kettle, so not repairable.
Kettles and irons are small appliances I go through on piece. Over the years I have tried buying cheap ones and expensive ones to no avail. If I get two years out of them I am doing well. The one that died was a Cuisinart one so a good brand and probably mid range as far as price goes. I ordered one from Amazon.ca and it's a Sunbeam one, this one.
The best thing of all it was FREE. Yep FREE. With me doing my Swagbucks I cash them in for Amazon.ca E-Cards. So I always have money in my Amazon account, so in times of need I cash them in for things we need, in this case a new kettle. Meanwhile I have had to hunt out our cheap kettle we take on vacation with us to the States.
