    You still have to re-fill or ensure water is in that kettle and I couldn't hear the audio but you would still presumably have to make your own tea and coffee with sugar etc anyway, not to mention pouring milk in and the other stuff in the correct order and with tea , remove the tea bags etc

    I'm sure someone somewhere could write a raspberry pi program for it... The problem would then become that people empty and do not refill said kettle - LeBoyfriend does this every day and it drives me potty.

    But that's the right thing to do, should never re-boil water, especially if making tea.
