Electric kettle or kettle on the gas stove?

In the past, my mom and grandmom used those old, big, aluminium made kettle to boil 5 Litres of water daily. It was heavy to carry the big kettle and pour the hot boiling water into the thermos flasks. Now, we have electric kettle for smaller volume and speedy boiling but electric consumption is higher. ALternatively, we can also use manual kettle ranging from 3L to 5 L, depending on your preference. You need to boil the kettle over a gas stove. When the kettle whistle, dash to the kitchen as fast as you can to switch it off. The high pitch whistling sound is just unbearable! So, which type of kettle are you using? I am using the kettle on the gas stove. Cheaper but noisy. photo taken and belonged to peachpurple

I would suggest if you boil often that you might want to consider buying an induction stove, it's getting cheaper now, just around 50 usd and there are models that cost even less, you will be surprised that it boils twice as fast as conventional stoves but uses much less power.

I had an electric kettle but had to buy another one as the first one failed..then the second one failed as well. So I started back using the regular kettle for the stove, but I have electric stove and hate it. I wish I had a gas stove. Yes it whistles the kettle here.

I use the electric kettle. It seems it is cleaner and much more convenient than the gas kettle. Besides, the electricity fee is cheaper than the gas. And it is safer since it will be turned off automatically. If you use the gas kettle, sometimes you will forget about it and it will lead to a danger when the water inside is gone.
