I'm now debating if I want to get one for the winter that's coming up. I live in the Midwest (around Chicago) and I drink a lot of coffee/tea/hot chocolate in the winter. I have a drip coffee pot for the first (debating about a Keurig though) but an electric kettle sounds nice for the other two. Plus, I am starting to get worried about heating water in the microwave, even though I throw in a spoon before pouring it in any cup. It would be nice not to worry about that!
I do have a stove top kettle, but it seems to take so long. Mom says that's because we have an electric stove instead of a gas one.
