Why do people stand and watch a kettle boil until it switches itself off????

It’s a safety feature!!!!!

Boring I know but I've often thought that if there was a sensitivity switch you could adjust how much power could be saved as I often see kettles that boil away for say 10-15 seconds after the water starts boiling.

Do people stand and watch kettles boil???

And it's not a safety feature it's the design of kettles, it's what they do, boil water to a specific temperature

I'm the tightwad who stands there and turns it off as soon as the water starts to boil, saves around 15Kw per year.

errrr maybe their waiting for it to finish so they can errrrrrrr make a cuppa????

I do that, but only because I don't let the water boil until the automatic shut off. I don't like mouth scorching drinks and don't see the point of letting them cool down .

2Kw kettle, so say 10 secs saving by switching manually, 10 times a day = 100secs/day x 365 days = 10Hrs x 2Kw = 20Kw
But remove some for the days you dont have hot drinks or are away = 15Kw (_;)

'.......boil water to a specific temperature' !!!! Water boils at 100C at sea level! Leaving a kettle to boil continuously only results in steam. The automatic switch off is not a 'Design of the Kettle' ... its there for when steam has built up in the kettle sufficient to activate the bi-metal strip.
