How Much Time Do Your Staff Waste Waiting For The Kettle To Boil?

Here’s a question you may have asked yourself while queueing up to make your refreshing hot beverage at work: How much time do I spend waiting for the kettle to boil each week, when I could be using my time more wisely? Research conducted on behalf of Casumo.com surveyed 2000 adults and found that, in a typical week, we’ll waste 12 minutes waiting for the kettle to boil. That’s approximately 50 minutes a month, and 624 minutes, or 10.4 hours a year.

It seems ridiculous doesn’t it? Even if we factor in that a colleague could make 8 of his/her workmates a cup of tea or coffee from the average kettle, the maths is still unnerving. 20 mugs takes 30 minutes, 50 mugs takes 1 hour, 15 minutes and for 100 mugs, that 2 and a half hours. Think about how much work could get done in that time. Unsurprisingly, 63% of study participants stated that they’d like to use their time more effectively.

Surely there’s got to be a more efficient way? There certainly is. We present to you 3 of the best water boilers currently on the market that ensure your staff can get back to their work and meetings as soon as possible.
