Why do British people get really angry when we boil water in the microwave?
It's not like it changes the flavor or anything and is faster
Are they just brainwashed by the electric kettle industry?
>>
I put my pitcher in the broiler
>>
There's a Brazilian guy at my work who does this and we talk about him behind his back

What, you microwave water, why don't you use kettles?
>>
>>96002930
Okay so don't superheat it and just boil it like a normal person
>>
>>96002230
It's not just us who laugh at you for this, it's most of the world.

Why the fuck would I buy a kettle and have to store it somewhere for the one time a year I drink tea?
>>
>>96003137
Coffee ?

>>96003270
Why would I boil water before I put it in the coffee maker?

You should always put your trust in the hands of an experienced veteran

I think Americans don't use instant coffee
>>
You guys don’t have this?
>>
>>96002230
No idea why
Personally i want to see as many americans as possible get burn marks
>>
>>96003347
Dont americans drink coffee out of styrofoam buckets with around two granules of coffee diluted in at least a litre of hot water ?
>>
>>96002230
I don't get angry I just think it's hilarious

This is a Ameribear tier post.
Water is superheated in a microwave as a function of how a microwave oven cooks.

>>96003520
this guy knows what's up

>>96003705

american electrical supply is half that of europe, so water tikes over twice as long to boil (kettles are very inefficient in the first place)
>>
>>96002230
because it's like shitting in a bathtub because you don't have a sink, it doesn't make any fucking sense
>>
protip: no one actually boils water in the microwave, it's all memes and you all bite on it

No, that's just those shitty free coffee machines that every office has and no one drinks because it's nasty.
We usually use a Keurig or coffee machine that drips hot water though a coffee filter. People that like coffee will use a French press (which you microwave the water for)

Then how come this has never happened in the thousands of times I've boiled water in the microwave?
It usually requires distilled water and a perfectly smooth container from what I'm aware. It has nothing to do with the microwave

Holy shit, they actually drink nasty ass instant coffee?

I use my stove. If I want hot water, but not boiling hot (rarely), I use the microwave.

I've got a kettle, too, as I love fresh-brewed tea, plus restaurants around here have picked up on fresh brewed tea in the past several years - we're loving the stuff, but most people wait for it to cool, I tell the waiters, "bonus points if the tea is piping hot."

>>96004165
Only benders drink coffee here.

>>96004165
I drink coffee sometimes for the sake of caffeine. I don’t care bout the taste. Don’t get me started with pills, I don’t always have a caffeine pill ready when I need one.
>>
>>96003470
We brew shitty folgers coffee instead

I have my own drip style coffee maker at home which I make and enjoy. But when I’m in my office knowing that I’m gonna be staying there till late, I’ll need a little boost from instant coffee there.
>>
>>96004362
Yeah that's fair. I wouldn't bother bringing my own shit to work either.

Might have seen it at a store once, never known anyone to actually drink it.
We usually just get it a Starbucks or Dunkn' on the way to work or use ground coffee either in a can or from fresh beans at the grocery store
>>
>>96004573
>fresh beans at the grocery store
What stores still do that?
>>
>>96004657
Every one I know of.
