Where did the meme that the electric water boiler does not exist in the U.S.A. come from?

Where did the meme that the electric water boiler does not exist in the U.S.A. come from? Every Target or Walmart in my area sells several models of these. We have one in my office and it boils water in a minute or so. It isn't even a name brand and it works perfectly for this simple task.

      You microwave water to make coffee. Nobody made that up, they just recoiled in horror when you proudly informed us of that fact. Now you're coping by saying "ACKSHUALLY we could buy a kettle if we wanted one!" as if that's relevant to the fact that you consider it some special achievement.

        The microwave is fine, too. Hot water is hot water regardless of how it is heated.

          Ackshually that's not quite correct, heating methods have different distributions of heat

              Once you create flow, yes. Water in a vessel sitting on a turntable is effectively stilled.

        Oh no, you heated up water in a different way than usual, but still achieved the same result, maybe even in less time! The horror!

    UK and some other sadsack Euro countries use cupboilers. We all live alone in a dying society, so 1 cup is often all we need.

    At 3+ kW a single cup worth of water boils fast, at 1500W it gets annoying.

      Wtf is a cupboiler? Nobody in the UK has even heard of it. Every household, workplace, and fricking tent on a Welsh mountainside has a kettle.

            That's half of what people in countries with 240v get.. A 240v country have electric kettles that pull 3000w to heat water, that's why it boils faster than America.

            Though our electric stoves are wired up to 240V and other big appliances.

    I've always had one, but its not considered a standard appliance here for some reason.

    Probably the popularity of drip coffee machines. But I think these days they're much more common with French Press and expresso becoming more popular, and obviously there ready available to anyone who wants one.

    The only Americans I knew who had them were old people and tea heads. I have one. Its nice. I don't have to wait for my pasta water to boil for 5 hours any more. I just make teo kettles in 2 minutes and I'm cooking.

    The oxo one I won in a raffle in undergrad still works. I like it. I just use it for coffee and tea, which I suppose is normal.

    I should get a new one, it still gets the job done but takes quite a long time to get up to temperature compared to how quickly it used to do it

    plus there's scale all over the inside of it

    I have picrel, and I like it a lot. I use it for boiling water for pasta etc. or for reconstituting stock, that kind of thing. (We don't drink much tea, but it's nice for that as well.) The max fill line is just under two quarts, but don't tell anybody that you can slightly over-fill it to boil exactly two quarts if you need to. Works well, looks good on the counter.
