It being suddenly cold and rainy here in the Windy City, I decided that afternoon tea would be a nice thing to have while I wait for my challah to rise. Unfortunately, the electric tea kettle has other ideas. Despite working perfectly well this morning, it is now refusing to boil water. The outlet itself is fine (I tested it with the toaster), so it must be a problem with the kettle itself. The plug and the cord seem fine, and nothing appears to have changed since this morning. Does anyone have any other ideas for things I could check?
