Starting this September 2017, electric tea kettles will no longer be required to have a restricted opening as part of the criteria for authorization.

The electric tea kettle will still require a thermostat and in-line fuse.

The criteria for other authorized electric heat producing appliances (beverage makers and hot air poppers) remain the same.

The selection criteria can be viewed at http://hres.princeton.edu/undergraduates/resident-services/policies-regulations/fire-safety-policies/fire-safety-policies-g-z

Please contact the Manager of Dormitories (kenpaul@princeton.edu) if you have questions.
