Another one - put the kettle on the gas with the whistle not in place, then forget all about it and let it boil dry. Unfortunately I've done this more than once, but I seem to have a very forgiving kettle.

I do this about every six months to a year. I do not have a very forgiving kettle. I keep telling my wife we should get one of those electric kettles with an automatic shutoff on a thermostat, and she says, "We don't need that, just pay attention."

Usually it happens when I put the water on and then get into something on the computer. It's been Mudcat's fault more than once. I could send Max more money if I didn't keep buying new teakettles.
