OK, I see what you're getting at. You'll also need a sensor to detect when all the water gone so you know to turn off the heating element before you burn it out or melt the whole thing.
Formal verification of safety-critical software, software development, and electronic design and prototyping. See http://www.eschertech.com. Please do not ask for unpaid help via PM, use the forum.

if it helps, a "real" teasmade has a switch under the kettle
the weight of a full kettle holds the switch closed
as the water gets forced out, the weight decreases until the switch activates

the kettle has a screw top lid, and a pipe that comes out (like a spout) into the spout of the teapot part
pipe leads down into the kettle to almost the bottom so as the steam build up the water is forced out
there are only 10 types of people
them that understands binary
and them that doesn't

kk, thanks for the extra tip. I'll start assembling soon.

Just need to know which ardu' I need, is uno fine?
