The short and simple answer to this question is yes. This is the first thing to do when learning how to use an instant pot. So yes an instant pot can easily boil water for you and aside from boiling water, it can also be used in steaming veggies, cooking rice, baking a cake, and many more things.
In this way, can electric kettle be used as humidifier?
Because electric kettles can boil water and release water vapor into the air, it’s possible to use an electric kettle as a humidifier. Humidity can be thought of as the amount of water in the air. The more water the air contains, the more humid it is.
Furthermore, can you boil in an Instant Pot without the lid?
Not every mode on your Instant Pot needs the lid secured for proper cooking. For example, it’s perfectly OK to saute or heat up foods with the lid off. In fact, sauteing mode won’t brown and crisp your food with the lid trapping in steam.
Can you cook inside a kettle?
Technically, yes, but it’s not recommended. Unless designed otherwise, an electric kettle is made specifically for boiling water , which means it should not be able to reach or sustain the safe cooking temperature that most food require without damaging the appliance or raising other safety and sanitary concerns.

Yes, you can heat milk in your kettle as well! Just empty your kettle of water, if there is any in there, and add your desired amount of milk. The only difference with heating milk in your kettle rather than water is you will have to pay more attention to it.

“It costs as much to heat water in a kettle as it does on an electric hob – both use about the same amount of electricity to heat the water.
Usually natural gas is the cheapest way to heat water, followed by electricity, with propane being the most expensive.
The kettle is more efficient. Nearly 100% of the energy is converted by Joule’s law into heat into the water (the kettle is also heated and it makes some noise so it’s never 100%, but near). Microwave ovens at the other hand usually have a 60-65% power efficiency just for microwave generation.
