Yes, I see them flying overhead fairly often.

I can't say from my own knowledge, obviously, but I've always heard that they don't.

now that I come to think of it, I believe it's electric kettles that are meant to be a rarity over on that side. Something to do with their domestic electricity being a lower voltage? wattage? amperage? Weaker, anyway.

Pardon??? I've seen a flying fortress and there is a 'plane we call the flying brick. But a flying kettle?? Is it a type of bird or a new breed of superhero perhaps? And does it have a spout?

Or either more common, one. We have planty of heat sources for bringing the water in the kettle up to boiling temp. A plain old Armstrong kettle can be used on a gas stove, electric stove, wood stove, butane stove, whatever. Having the heat source built into the kettle seems a little redundant to USns.
