I have a big electric kettle to heat up water. Maybe you would call it a pitcher. It's a big blue plastic thing that boils water in less than a minute. Needless to say, it gets a lot of use.
Today, I clicked it on and went in the other room for a second. When I came back in, I noticed a funny smell. I looked at the electrical outlet and saw smoke pouring out of it.
Hmm, that's not normal.
Quickly I unplugged it. Smoke was still coming out, but I couldn't see whatever it was that was burning. I guess I'll blow on it?
