New Kettle


We got a new kettle last week. Here it is:

We didn't used to leave our old kettle off the stand, because if someone spilled something nearby it could splash into the electrics and kill us all. However, this is what it looks like when it is on the stand:

I think the idea is that if we leave the kettle on the stand, we should switch the power off to stop it from glowing. However, as that would mean moving the microwave next to it, it's not going to happen.

So, do we waste electricity illuminating the house unnecessarily, or risk death from a dropped milk bottle?
