    I want to make sure I’m not going to damage my fantastic SVS with what I do to speed up the heating up of the water.

    I fill the SVS up to well above the fill line, then dip out about 6 cups in a Pyrex measuring cup, and microwave it on high for six minutes. Then I pour the (much) hotter water back into the SVS, which raises the temp — quickly — about 3-4 degrees. Usually I dip out another 6 cups after about 30 seconds (to let the previous pour spread around) and microwave it for 6 minutes too, then pour it in.

    Am I reasonably correct that this will not damage the sensors or whatever, since the SVS is full of (much) cooler water, and the hot water isn’t going directly onto the stainless steel?

    Love the SVS!
