Home Sauna Kettle Kit

02 Feb

I’m having kettle trouble. The lid broke.

It still works, you just have to be there to switch it off. It’s fine, I’ve managed like that for two weeks.

But then I filled it up for a hot water bottle. I was off in the other room, busy. I’d forgotten the lid issue.

Suddenly I realised that bubbling noise had been going on for ages….

OH NO QUICK the kettle!

I opened the door to… a sauna!

Almost all of the kettle’s contents had evaporated, the air was thick with steam. I braved the boiling water and switched it off.

I’m editing a Greener Leith podcast about repairing things – the message is we don’t need to throw things away.

The kettle is my nemesis. It broke in less than three years, designed to fail to force me to buy more, to keep me consuming.

Do I get a new one?
Home sauna kit anyone?
