So, Buy Committee (that’s you), scroll down to the comments to share your experiences with your electric kettles. Help OneSweetShannon decide whether she should choose the one which matches her mixer or one that’s a bit more functional.

Of course, we’re looking to help you decide on more purchases. So, if you’re still agonizing over something, email with the subject line “Buy Committee” or tweet us at @ItsTheInventory.
