How do you boil Water
Something died in our family this week. Our faithful Hot Water Pot that we bought when I was pregnant with Nicole.
I remember we bought this because we wanted to boil water real fast (this is much faster than using a kettle over the fire), and we could choose the temperature to set it at, and it could keep the water warm! We figured as first time parents, it is so so important to make milk FAST!
Well, something happened… I think water got in the cabling or something. The water didn’t boil, it just stopped working. So we have been boiling water using a little pot. (No kettle in the house! )
Why is this worthy of a post? Cos this Tiger Baby was a big part of our parenting journey. We used it daily, and it was idiot-proof! Now that it’s gone, I’m stuck. What should we use now to boil water?
It sounds frivolous but many thoughts cross my mind:
Electrical Water Pot like this would mean we get the hot water fast, but it’s expensive! Absolute waste of energy.
Traditional kettle meant water will take a while longer to get hot, but much cheaper to boil water this way
Should I get a large giant kettle? Boil a whole lot of water and that means I still need to get a Hot Pot to keep the water warm
Should I get a small kettle? Boil just enough for use each time. We don’t really need that much hot water
What do you use at home to boil water?
(Mum will be proud of me… I’m actually asking a household question! hahaha!!!)
We have an electrical pot. You could also consider an electric kettle if boiling water over the stove is too slow. If you're going with the traditional method, all you need is a big pot. No need for a special kettle.
I use a small saucepan and just boil what I need, which is usually 2 cups or so, so it boils very fast, cos not so much water to boil at one go. 🙂

We too had a similar hot water pot previously but somehow the stains that built up internally made us to discard it. Now we are boiling water from kettle (a medium size one) and store the freshly boiled water into a Tiger thermal flask. This arrangement works very well for us for a few yrs now 😉

We have an electric kettle… and like rachel, we will transfer the hot water in a thermal flask for making milk. 🙂

Electrical Water Pot! You can have milo & 3-in-1 coffee any time you want!
I've never seen anything like this before! We use an electric kettle that just plugins into the wall.

Aww it's sad when things from your early parenting days break down. We just use a pot to boil water but I can see this being really convenient!

I didn't even know that they made things to eat up water! I've always just used the teakettle or pot, and sometimes the microwave.

I had an electrical water pot until recently–it just stopped working one day. I've been using a pan on the stovetop but I prefer the electrical pot.

I've never used anything but a pot on the stove with water!

That's pretty cool. Great for heavy tea drinkers too I bet!
We use a tea kettle on the stove at our house
Ha, we just use a pot on the stove. I never put much thought into how I actually boil the water.

We sometimes use a kettle but often I find I'm using a saucepan.
I have a kettle but never use it. I have this great feature on my range that boils water really fast. Boiling eggs and water isa breeze and takes no time at all.
