my husband worked 12 hours last night (6pm - 6am) and when he got home he went to make coffee and sometime during the night our kettle passed away. It was alright at 7pm when I made tea...
Here in Australia we don't use coffee makers, we have electric cordless kettles, that you just fill and plug in for boiled water.
The good thing is that I wanted a new one (ours wasn't cordless), the bad thing is it was sunday morning and us Queenslanders still consider sunday a day off, so not much is open ( I had to go to an electroncs store rather than Kmart). The other bad thing is it couldn't have waited until thursday when Aldi has them for $7.99
I had to pay $39.95 for this one
