Culture Shock Diary #15 - Stove Top Kettles

So - now I'm back in the US, time for more culture shocks. Most of them things I just didn't get round to posting about before, but one or two new ones as well.

So... stove top kettles. On the plus side, stove top kettles are cute and they sing (anyone else ever wondered where that phrase comes from?). But they're also less efficient and take longer to boil. Electric kettles are readily available in the States - and pretty much everyone I've spoken to about this agrees they're better. So why are they so unusual?!
