Thank you for all the comments. I’ll respond to everyone in a single email.
I have a fridge, and a microwave. I’ve been meaning to get a coffee maker. I don’t know which of these are common or not here. I imagine it’s common for Airbnbs everywhere to have these things, because they have an international clientele, but I don’t know, of course.
Interesting. As I said above, I have a microwave, but I’ve not been particularly concerned about a microwave fire. This doesn’t seem to be as common a fire hazard as a toaster. For one thing it is enclosed. For another, it’s not a direct heat source.
Really? I find that a bit surprising. How many places did you stay at? Where they hotels, Airbnbs or something else? And what were the locations?
I think guests have a reasonable expectation of certain amenities. I don’t have a problem with that. And I’ve never thought of toasters as particularly un-Indian things, though maybe they are.
I’m not sure how you know that - I don’t think I’ve mentioned it anywhere here. But it’s technically true that the kitchen has a dishwasher, but it’s not been used for a long time (I’m not sure how long), and it may not be functional. I haven’t tested it.
The gas range is off-limits to guests. Actually, the only one that uses it is our cook. See my fire concerns above.
Hi @Malagachica. Nice to hear from you - I hope you’re doing well.
Yes, I bought the electric kettle, but that isn’t a fire hazard, is it? And I thought you were British, but I often get these things wrong.
I really don’t think we should be betting on the lack of stupidity of guests.
