    Can I put my kettle in a drawer and boil it? Don't want my housemates to hear the noise in my room

    Just scream while it's boiling, that'll help mask the noise

    No. The cable will most likely stop the drawer closing, resulting in sound still coming out!

    The steam would ruin the drawer over time. Also, it's a serious fire hazard. You really shouldn't do this.

    And why would you even be concerned about flatmates hearing it?
