Using old parts of a sandwich grill to heat water

Hello Guys, Im new here and I dont know much about electrical stuff (yet) so I hope I am in the right place to ask this.

I have an old sandwich grill at home and I wanted to use these (see image attached) parts to heat water or at least keep it warm. It isnt much water we are talking here, 2-3 liters.
The thing is, I dont have a clue on how to get started with this, it should be simple, its not a permanent solution but I would like to build something that isnt dangerous to my house wiring and to avoid fire too haha.

Could you guys please point me in the right direction?
Thank you for your time!

In my opinion there is NO safe way to use those elements to heat water.

I am closing this thread because, as already pointed out, there is no safe way to do what you propose.
