How does an electric shower heat up so fast?

Electric showers only take water from the mains cold water supply. They heat the water when you turn the shower on, by passing it over a heating element inside the shower - in a similar way to how a kettle works. When you shower, you don't use up and stored hot water - so electric showers are ideal for families and households where there is a limited supply of hot water. Electric showers are always ready to use, any time of the day or night

Why doses the mirror fog up when you take a shower using the word dewpoint?

Warm air can hold more moisture than cold air. The dew point in the shower room is at or below room temperature. The vapor from the hot water in the shower warms up the air in the room, and the mirror surface is colder with low dew point, so the water condenses on it causes it to fog up since it cannot hold the moisture. The same thing happens when you leave an air conditioned auto with glasses on - they fog up if the air outside is warm with high dewpoint - lots of moisture
