The latest addition to my growing collection of delightfully dangerous Chinese electrode water boilers. This one is supposedly rated 2.5kW and is rather amusingly sold for heating the water for babies baths.
To be fair, it does suggest unplugging it before putting the baby in, as otherwise you and the baby would have a very loud and violent 50/60Hz family moment.
If you're willing to accept that there is a shock risk from touching the water then the unit would actually be ideal for boiling entire buckets of water. I'm sure you'd probably stick your hand in to feel how hot it was at some point, but electricity would then punish you to ensure you didn't do it again.
Sadly the unit didn't make it much beyond 1kW while being tested, but there is a possibility that the current would increase as the water warmed up and had it's air purged from it resulting in better electrode contact. That certainly happened with the wee 300W cup version featured at the end.
