I’m American and I have an electric kettle at home. I also provide one at the rental as well as a microwave and a copper kettle. I keep the copper kettle in the cabinet now, though. I got tired of washing grease off it because people keep frying in my not-well-ventilated kitchen.
??? Electric kettles aren’t something unique or hard to find in the US- as far as I’m aware, they are available everywhere that kitchen appliances are sold.
But something I’ve found Americans are completely bamboozled by is the type of clothesline I have, which is quite common in Canada and maybe also Europe? I brought the parts down from Canada, as they aren’t available in Mexico. Two large pulleys, one at each end, a metal connector that is used to tighten up the line, and another piece which rides along the 2 lines, that you roll out when you have about half the laundry hung, that keeps the line from sagging.
No American friend or guest has ever been able to figure out how to use it.
Taken out of context for journalism. All of that goes out the window if you’re talking about bringing a cup of water to a boil, where the bubbles create a current in the water that very effectively stirs the water making convection completely irrelevant, just like a kettle.
