For those people who have just landed on planet earth, here’s how you boil water without a kettle
Hot and boiling Water form One Device
It starts with the water that you put into your kettle. You fill the kettle from the tap in your kitchen. But did you know that the majority of us live in hard water areas?
Hard water contains mineral salts that come out of the water as the water heats up. That’s the white hard chalky bits that build up in the bottom of the kettle. But it doesn’t have to be like this. Find out more about instant boiling water taps.

There are devices that you can get, plumbed into your water system that turn hard water into soft water. Like the ones you can see here in this water softener system This has a whole host of benefits that I won’t go into here but you can see some of these here Benefits of a Water Softener.
