IT may be an appliance you use on a daily basis, but it turns out not everyone knows all of the uses of a kettle.
One woman named Anna, who posts under the acronym @buildabundle, took to TikTok and made quite the revelation – and people can’t believe they didn’t know it before.
In the clip, the woman says: “Cost of living tip! Who else has just discovered today that the numbers on a kettle DON’T tell you how many litres of water it holds?”
Referring to the numbers which can be seen on the water line level, Anna then goes on to reveal what they really mean.
“It actually tells you how many cups of tea that amount of water will make!” she says.
“So you only boil the amount you need.”
She captioned the post: “Honestly just discovered this, who else?”
The video racked up thousands of views, with many taking to the comments section thrilled that it’ll now save them money.

“Yup – although they are usually based of a teacup size, if you use a mug just add a 1.5 of their cups,” wrote one.
The TikTok user responded: “Ahh that’s helpful thank you! I usually fill it half-full and boil loads of water I don’t need.
“Can’t be affording that anymore!”
A second suggested: “If you’re worried about over boiling water, just microwave the water in a mug. It’s cheaper too.”
A third quipped: “You really thought your kettle held 8 litres of water?”
Anna responded: “Yes! Maths isn’t my stronger point!”
