So let's say you want to heat up soup, but you are living in a Bed and Breakfast with no access to a stove, and only an electric kettle to heat anything with. What is a poor grad student to do?Well here is how you do it in 4 easy steps.
Step 1) Cut off the top of a clean plastic coke bottle. Fill 3/4 full with soup (this also works well with curry sauce).
Step 2) Fill your electric kettle to the max line with water and boil.
Step 4) Now here is the tricky part. Turn off your kettle and float the plastic coke bottle in the water. Make sure you do not leave any soup on the sides of the bottle, or else you have a mess to clean up. This will also be the moment when you find out if you over filled the coke bottle. Now close the lid and wait.
Step 4) Remove from kettle and ENJOY!
