Now find one in Spain!!!!!! Actually, not impossible, but not as easy as in the UK. The Spanish don't seem to want kettles.

Usaba la microondas para hacer té antes que tenía mi hervidor....pero no es igual. El agua nunca está tan caliente y se enfría más rapido cuando usas una microondas.

Now I know to go to El Cote Inglés or Carrefour it's not a problem for me now. But I remember well my search for my first kettle in Madrid. I tried dozens of stores but all I could find were a thousand different machines for making coffee - some so complicated you would need a BSc to work out how to use!
I know many people use the microwave to heat the water for tea, as did a tea loving Spaniard I know, but when we bought her a bright, shiny Russel Hobbs for her birthday she said tea now tasted much better.
And using the Microwave to boil liquids is dangerous. Under the surface tension lies superheated water that can explode into your face.

No hiervo el agua en la microondas -- dos y media minutos es suficiente para mi. Nunca he tenido problemas.

Tortillero -- tortilla warmer. Cuando no quisieras usar la plancha para calentar cada tortilla.

Hasta queda mas lógico y todo.

Supongo que los nombres de utensilios de cocina y electrodomésticos son algo bastante local de cada pais o zona.

Default things that you find in

montero [m] [con mano o y mano] = pestle and mortar

mine is used often especially for spices - but can also be used for garlic [ajos] to make aiioli.

Ajá! Me pregunto si eso es por qué he oído personas refieren a helado como nieve. Estaba un poco confundida.
