    Default Whistling Kettle

    Anyone have a whistling kettle.
    Was thinking of getting one, but was wondering if the whistle can be made silent.
    In case you are making yourself a brew in the middle of the night.

    The old school ones it was a nozzle with stream passing through it that whistled. So picking the answer is no.

    Er...if you want it quiet, why get a whistling one?
    And if you making tea at night, you're already awake anyway. Well you would think....

    I have a non whistling whistling one in my bus, the reason it does not whistle and will never whistle is the vent hole is too big.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    Some interesting points, although not helpful.
    OK here's what started this thing off.
    Our current electric auto jug started leaking.
    So we have been boiling water in a pot on the gas hob.
    Seems to boil quicker & probably costs less too.
    Hence the interest in a kettle instead of replacing the jug.
    The reason for the whistle, so it doesn't get put on & forgotten about.
    Re use middle of night. Usually only one of us can't sleep & gets up.
