MY PARIS KITCHEN

Here is a picture of my Paris kitchen.  The kettle is on the stove.  The dishwasher is under the sink to the right.  The fridge is under the counter to the left of the stove.  The microwave/oven is under the counter to the right of the sink.  There is also a washer/dryer in the closet opposite the stove.  There is a Nespresso machine on the counter to the left of the stove.

Does this mean that not only the Americans but also the French haven't caught up with that wonderful invention, the electric kettle?

Beautiful space for letting loose creativity!

Charles, electric kettles are convenient, and you can certainly get them in the US(*), but lack the charm of a "real" kettle, I find. With a gas stove, the time isn't much different - rarely enough to make a difference for me - and I have enjoyed the feel of a "real" kettle. (I actually have an electric one now, having recently moved and deciding to wait for a bit before picking out a non-electric one that I like.)

(*)also, using kettles at all just isn't that common in the US, I think - most people just use a coffee pot of some sort, or heat water in the microwave. Tea, instant coffee, or coffee made in other ways that need a kettle are less common than in some other areas. I make my coffee, most often, with a french press (in the recent past) or a pour-through cone (now) so do need a kettle.

Professor Wolff --

This reminds me of the "Frankfurt Kitchen" designed by Grete Lihotzky. She worked with Gropius and others from the Bauhaus movement. She subsequently moved to Moscow to help design affordable and efficient housing there. You can see an example via the following link: http://www.museumderdinge.org/exhibitions/permanent-collection-open-storage/frankfurt-kitchen

In fact, your kettle is reminiscent of a Bauhaus design. See here: https://www.ambientedirect.com/en/tecnolumen/bauhaus-teapot_pid_3972.html
