    Is boiling water on a Baby Belling-type cooker safe?

    Dear Electrical Experts. Hokay, I know the question sounds stoopid - but here's the thing. I've not had an electric kettle for awhile because they kept blowing the mains circuits - the last 2 went rabid, if you turned them on the mains instantly turned off. I live in a one-room flat...
