Aye, me bollocks. The mini muncher got a load of that sort of gear last Christmas, mostly off eBay and other such high-faluting shopping experiences. It wasn't substantially dearer than the plastic shite, and it'll last a whole lot longer too.

It's only Middle Class in the sense of Sam Vimes' economic theory of boots

Yup. Always what I get for the grandkids. Trying to reduce our plastic footprint as well (he says starting on yet another Plastikard railway wagon...)

It’s the middle-class must have... so would you spend £3k on an 'amazing but expensive' boiling water tap?

QTWTAIN.

The in-laws have one. It's fine as a very hot water tap, but that's about it. It runs about 93-4C, which is too cold for tea and too hot for coffee, so fucking pointless for either.

You could use it to fill a kettle that would boil in under a minute.
