Although I always tell people that if I had a whistle-less teakettle (like my mother-in-law’s) I would probably burn my house down. And my family bought me a wonderful electric espresso maker after my fear that I would do the same with my stove-top model for that. Yet, if I forget to close the whistle/cover on my teakettle, I’m in the same scary boat and the water boils out and it’s not a pretty thing. Or a safe one.
Lesson learned again today: always always ALWAYS close the whistle on the kettle!
P.S. I know that one of my beloved blog-followers is going to hate this. But I’m sure she would rather I posted and learned! Right?

Ha, I ALWAYS close the whistle thingie, because if I don’t, the smell of burning metal stinks up the house for hours. If this sounds like the voice of experience, it is…..
Update: I bought a new teakettle with a spring-loaded whistle so I can not possibly leave it open!
I could read a book about this without finding such real-world aprchapoes!
