What kind of numpty would actually want one of these things?

I mean, seriously? Fill kettle with cold water, hit the "on" button. Rinse teapot, and heat with hot tap water. While the water in the kettle is coming up to the boil, measure out the tea, get out the milk, eyeball the [e|voice]mail. Water boils, make the tea. Heat cup with extra boiling water. Go pee. By the time you get back from the toilet, you have the perfect cuppa. Works for me, anyway.
