Been using this one for… 7 years (went into my order history to find it).

It works great, no problems, still looks the same inside and out as the day I bought it. Never had any issues with weird smells.

You can get something like this plastic guy for about fifteen or twenty bucks. They aren’t particularly uncommon. I got an electric kettle for Christmas one year, a nice stainless steel one, and it was $35 or $40–more money that I would imagine most people would shell out.

My boyfriend’s mother considers herself a big tea person, and all she does is microwave a cup of hot water. When I still lived at home, my grandmother got more into tea after my teacraze hit, and she did the same thing, even though there was a kettle right on the counter.

Well, there are always these options:
this or this

The only problem is the lack of temperature control, it’s basically hit boil and it stops. If you care about temperature control, then I recommend buying an instant thermometer(I recommend this one because it will beep when it reaches the desired temperature, make sure to set it to like 180 if you want 185) along with those kettles.

So if you purchase the the cheapest electric kettle and the thermometer, then you don’t even break $30.

Alternatively you can always buy a normal kettle and microwave the water but control management would be more difficult.

There are definitely cheaper ones:


And even cheaper is an immersion heater for a single cup:


What really makes it worth it, though, is the time saved.
