Melting butter with leftover heat

While making breakfast, Emily had just boiled some water for tea and then had to melt some butter for pancakes. So rather than putting the butter in a cold pan and heating it up from scratch, she put the butter in a bowl and placed it on top of the teapot, thereby using the heat that was otherwise sitting idle. Nice.
