when i was 5 i microwaved a glass of water for 10 minutes and then sipped it through a straw and burnt the ever loving fuck out of the tip of my tongue and my mother rightfully had absolutely no sympathy for me which made me feel even worse so no i don't microwave water.

>> No.13899251

I'll do it if I just have to get the water warm but if I need it boiling I'll do it on the stove. Multiple times I got superheated water from microwaving it and I'd rather avoid having to deal with that.

Why would microwaving water destroy and yet maintain the atomic structure of H2O? Please explain.

>> No.13899658

No because water boils outside of america

Kettles suck on 110v. Here in the states, 220 is for clothes dryers.

>> No.13899786

No because I don't want to superheat the water and explode it in my face. I use a kettle like literally everybody else in my country.

Do yanks microwave water or use the stove, typically?

>> No.13899805

why would voltage matter? As long as enough amps are up to it the water will boil just fine.

Multiculturalism caused the coronavirus. They lied to us. Globalism only benefits third world immigrants and the elite. It's the enemy of white families everywhere. Stay safe and vote ultra conservative. Protect your family.

>> No.13900020

Power matters. American outlets (or rather, circuit breakers) do not allow for a higher current to compensate for the lower voltage. So the lower voltage means the power is halved, and therefore the boiling time is doubled.

Whoever keeps spouting that current matters, not voltage, needs to be shot. They are proportional.

The elite aren't buying sweatshop goods, you are.

neither of those pictures are america.

>tiny stoves
>visible external gas line on one of them

reminder that people who live in Alabama, the poorest state, have more purchasing power than the average Briton, and this has left residents of the world's most multicultural country (Britain) in a constant impotent panicked rage.

Nobody in america microwaves water, either.

>> No.13900188

does it still burn, anon? or do you have deadtongue on the tip?

>> No.13900198

I never microwaved water. Have had a stovetop kettle for most of my life. There are people with electric kettles though. This is the issue with one person representing an entire group of people.

>> No.13900212

you microwave water when a stove isn't required; tea, instant oatmeal, cup o noodle, sauces in packets, really anything in packets that have instructions not calling for oven cooking.
you cook food on the stove, but sometimes that calls to bring water to a boil and keep cooking (mac and cheese, top ramen-not the cup o' noodle), which you do on the stove.

>> No.13900285

This is how you clean the microwave. Put a bowl of water in there and nuke for 6 or 7 minutes. This will moisten the dried up food on the inside and make it easier to clean.

>> No.13900308

They don't sell that type of kettle in any US store i've been to.

>> No.13900334

That's the odd one out. Tea definitely calls for boiling water.

>> No.13900344

that's the joke. It's an electric kettle, and Americans don't know about electric kettles.

>> No.13900384

Except that's not an American stove top. A European did that. Turns out there are idiots everywhere.

>> No.13900388

American and I've never used a stovetop, only electric kettles.

>> No.13900413

An american, not in America, who has never seen an electric kettle before, assumed only stove-top kettle existed, and tried to use an electric kettle as a stove top kettle to disastrous result. It's a fairly simple narrative.
Also your assertion that a gas stove isn't american is quite the assumption.

yea, the stereotype falls short of the truth

>> No.13901243

I'm canadian, everyone I know use an electric kettle to boil water for drinks and such. People use the microwave to reheat liquids but not to straight up boil water.

except electric kettles are sold in every general store in the usa like target and walmart

i'm blown away that europeans constantly think americans have less than them. maybe you should look at this again >>13900037

we have access to more and better products than you do, and we have more money to buy them with than you do. stop living in a fantasy world.

Nice headcanon.

>> No.13901581

Stove. I've never met anybody who microwaves plain water.

Closest I've seen is for cup soups or other similar foods on lunch.

>> No.13902913

Except Americans shouldn't be using electric kettles because their low voltage power means water takes literally twice as long to boil.
It's not about money, kettles cost nothing.
