Wet is Dangerous!
Electricity and water can be compared to day and night. They do not go together. Therefore, always make sure that the cabling of an electric kettle is completely dry before plugging it into a socket or an extension cable. Both ends of a cable must be checked for wetness, that is, the female/male side and the plug. Wet cabling can cause serious injury because of electrocution or start fire in your house.
