It's made in China. (Not always a bad thing).
Very lightweight. Strange/worrying(?) for something that boils water.
Rated at 360W.
The instructions say the heating plate is Teflon - does Teflon now look like cheap metal?
Instructions are impressive in the quality of the English language. Not a hilarious translation in sight.
The measuring cup is a small plastic bowl which looks as if it came with a detergent. The markings on one side are in German & Chinese. These are titled 'weich' (soft), 'mittel' (medium) and 'hart' (hard).
On the other side are the divisions for 30ml, 45ml and 60ml. These don't correspond to the soft/medium/hard marks, nor the water guidelines in the accompanying instructions, which refer to 25ml, 35ml, 40ml, 45ml, 48ml etc.
Interestingly, none of the 'well done' settings (70-100ml) is measurable with this cup.
I spent a week experimenting with the settings but didn't achieve the desired firm white/soft yolk of my perfect egg until I went back to the cup which came with the Wahl.
But finally, I've had to admit, I can't do without the buzzer of every other boiler I've used. I don't eat in the kitchen and have other things to do elsewhere. Thus, I've gone back to the Wahl (also made in China) but replaced it's broken egg holder & top with the Xett ones.
Perhaps, if you only ever want hard-boiled eggs, this would suit? It's definitely not for me.
