The next time that you go on a vacation, you might want to consider taking along an electric kettle and some heat resistant mugs. It does not matter if you are planning to stay in a hotel, motel, or your own recreational vehicle, as long as you have a source of electricity for the electric kettle. At first, it might seem like an odd thing to take on a vacation, but once you are aware of all of the things that you can do with it, you will see that it is wise to take it along.
Electric kettles are used to make water hot and there are dozens of uses for hot water, both at home and while on a vacation. The most obvious use is simply to be able to enjoy a cup of tea, but your electric kettle can also be used to make a cup of instant coffee or hot cocoa. By bringing along your electric kettle, you can start your day with the hot beverage of your choice without the need to shower, dress, and go to a restaurant or coffee shop in the area. There is also no extended wait for service at the restaurant or bill to pay for your beverage.
Tossing some packages of instant soup or ramen noodles in your luggage with your electric kettle allows you to have an easy, inexpensive meal on the go. This is great for those bad weather days when you would rather not pack the family in the car and drive to a restaurant. In addition, when you are running late to a scheduled event and will not have time to stop for food, you can turn on the electric kettle while you are getting ready and have quick bite to eat that will hold you over until after the event. You can even use the remaining hot water to clean the mugs after you finish eating the soup or noodles.
If you are on a vacation that involves a lot of standing in line or walking around to get from one place to the next, it is highly likely that everyone’s feet will feel achy by the end of the day. That can put a damper on spirits and make everyone less enthusiastic about wanting to go out the following day if it is likely to involve more standing in line or a lot of walking. Your electric kettle can be used to quickly heat some water for everyone to enjoy a nice relaxing foot bath. You can even put a small container of bath salts in your luggage to add to the luxury of the foot baths.
If you are traveling in your RV and staying in campgrounds, an electric kettle can be very convenient. It can be used to quickly preheat water for cooking instead of doing it on the stovetop or over a campfire. Not only does the electric kettle save you cooking time, but it can also save you money since you are simply plugging it into the electrical source at the campground.
