    I've never owned a fast electric kettle.

    In the winter I use the top of the wood burner if it's on or the gas hob. I can always find something to do, like empty the washing machine or the dishwasher, whilst it boils so I guess I don't notice the extra time it takes. 

    In the summer I use a low powered kettle to make use of the solar. 

    I'd never heard of a Quooker 
    Tbf despite having a thermomix as an all in one multi cooker device thing, I mostly do use it for the kettle, largely because I boil the kettle about three times a day 

    The thermomix is considerably slower at boiling a kettle, which helps when it comes to the solar panels. I won't care when I've got more batteries though 
    I use it to make hot chocolate on warm up mode.  I left the butterfly whisk in when attempting to blend on power 8 this morning to give it a bit of froth.   It looks surprisingly good, considering.  🤦🏼‍♀️ 
    Decent. I'll absolutely use the higher power ones when I've got more batteries (Though apparently induction cookers aren't great with batteries)
