I do mean lightweight, not small.
I thought about getting a small camping/travel kettle. But that would do for cups of tea, but not for filling a hotwater bottle, which I’m doing every night, and sometimes during the day, in this weather.
I realise that, when full, most of the weight is the water, and there’s no getting around that - short of boiling up two half loads.
But it’s probably not helping that my existing jug-type kettle is quite heavy before I start. I’m starting to worry I might drop it whilst pouring near-boiling water, because my arm suddenly gets tired and decides to quit. I hope I’m aware enough of the risk to realise, and put it down, before things ever get that far, but I’m tiring with less warning. For the moment, I can hold on long enough to put it down or quickly finish pouring, but what if I can’t?
Anyone got a nice, lightweight one? I’m talking electric - not for the hob.
Alternatively, thinking more laterally, I’m thinking some kind of vessel with a tap on the side, so I wouldn’t actually have to lift it.
But I’ve only ever seen such things for very large-scale catering - not personal domestic use.
Lifting a full kettle must be a common everyday task people with disabilities (not just MS) struggle with. It feels as if there should be something out there, but what?
