It has occurred to me that, like my darling wife of 65 years there are probably many forum members who, like her have arthritic hands and find it difficult, if not dangerous to lift a kettle full of boiling water.
About four years ago we were introduced to the UCCELLO kettle and we wouldn't be without one now. The kettle lifts out of it's cradle for filling and when sat back in it's cradle it makes electrical connection. When boiled it is tilted to pour, no lifting a kettle of boiling water.
The UCCELLO company appears to be international and whilst it costs $80.00 in Australia, I'm sure that it is less in America.
