But how do they make tea?!

It’s an essential (and overused) kitchen appliance in every Irish home but it seems most Americans don’t own electric kettles.

It’s come to the world’s attention that our friends Stateside don’t use kettles to boil water, and some don’t even know what a kettle is.

Instead, they boil water in a stovetop kettle, a saucepan, or get this…a microwave.

We know. Shudder.

It’s safe to say Twitter lost it.

Some tried to explain why Americans don’t use our favourite household appliance.

We’re not buying it though. Oh and boiling water in the microwave is just plain wrong.
