I got a new kettle. A Breville. Now someone destroyed the old one by bumping the plastic window and cracking it making it leak water… what a waste of a kettle since it was only 1 yr old… but this new one, which I think, happens to have an ugly design,  turned out to be a new, “you beaut, fangle-dangled,” appliance.

When you turn it on, the water level highlights and when it turns off, it makes a big old *piiiing* sound but the best thing about it, it’s so damn quiet heating up…. The other brand sounded like a chaff cutter when it was heating water. I can actually stand next to this one and still hear the TV…. AMAZING…

Recommend… 10 out of 10 for performance….

4 out of ten for design.

Cost… too bloody much… over 100 dollars.

I'm in the middle of cleaning up.... I quite like what I did to the kitchen... I need to seal and paint the rest white... redo the pantry door white.. (Its cream now) I just took this so I didn't put away everything but since this site isn't a house and garden magazine, no one will care except Megan who hates clutter (tee hee)... she isn't the only one... I hate it too.... but I am not the clutterer.. I'm not a pack rat.

Ohhhhh I love the kitchen!  Beautiful.

I got a french coffee press for Christmas
and the thing says it's an 8 cup press but
not even six cups of liquid will fit into the damn
thing.  The first time I made coffee in it I put
8 tablespoons of ground coffee not measuring the
capacity first and the coffee was sooooooo STRONG.
I served it to my mother-in-law and was wondering
why they didn't ask for more like usual.  LOL

I like strong coffee but it was even way too strong
for me.

I like the press but it is too small.  Now I know
to use less coffee and usually drink the whole
pot myself.

I have an old fashioned tea kettle (one like my mom
always used to use)  I use it for everything when I need
boiling water.  I want a tap on my faucet that instantly
boils water like they have in hotels but I can wait.
When we were looking at houses to buy one of the houses
had it installed plus they had a built in steamer in the kitchen.
I loved that kitchen but it was an older home and I hated
the counter tops in particular.

Yes, I know but we weren't prepared to pay the asking price
with all the changes I wanted to make so we opted for another
house.  I often think about that house though and what it woulda
been like to live there.  I really wanted it.
