OK so it's only a kettle.......but what a kettle! It boils sooo fast and beeps when it's boiled (it also beeps when you switch it on which was a tad annoying to begin with, but you get used to it). You can also choose what temperature you want it to boil the water at, 70, 80, 90 or 100 degrees. (It also has a keep warm button, which I will admit I haven't had need to use yet).
The concealed element means you can boil just a small amount of water (1 cup) without worrying about it cutting out on you.
Also with most kettles they are designed for right handed users, but with this one because it has the Bosch logo on the front and back you can have the handle on the left without it looking like your kettle is back to front!
Be warned though it is much bigger than it looks - the base unit is 200mm deep and 175mm wide, and when the kettle is on the base unit the total height is 265mm so if you're short on space this might not be the best choice for you.
And on top of everything else it is the most sexy looking kettle you'll ever have on your kitchen worktop!
