I love tea, so I boil a lot of water. I usually just put in enough water in the kettle for a cup of tea. And then later I boil more when for the next cup of tea. I know, it’s not the most energy-efficient; not exemplary Everyday Sustainable behavior.
This morning, my boyfriend found the Zojirushi thermal carafe in the photo (at right) at a restaurant closing sale down the street. The plastic top has some coffee odor; I’ll get some white vinegar tomorrow to try to address it.
But as for keeping hot water hot, it’s worked all day long!
What a great pre-used find!
