5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kettle and looks good too, 9 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bosch TWK86103GB Styline Sensor Kettle, 1.5 L - Black (Kitchen & Home)
After my 12 year love affair with my sleek and stylish ever-so-expensive Siemens Porsche Mark 1 toaster and kettle combo ended, after they busted from wear and tear, I had to find replacements for them. That proved harder than I thought: kettles (and toasters) either looked bad and performed OKish but look cheap and nasty; looked good and attracted poor reviews; looked bad and attracted good reviews, or looked good with good reviews but cost a king's ransom. Then I came across this kettle, which seemed to tick all the right boxes. I have had it a few weeks now and it not only looks stylish, it is technically advanced too: lightweight empty and full; you can heat water to different temperatures 70 (white tea) 80 (green, herbal teas) 90 (coffee) 100 (regular cuppa); it has a handy 'keep warm' function that keeps heated water at a constant temperature for 30 mins without having to repeat the boiling up process over again - to save energy. The power cord can be coiled underneath the base plate so as not to trail across countertops. It comes fitted with a regular UK three pin plug. On the downside, it is a big kettle. Therefore, if you are low on kitchen counter space this might not be the best choice for you. Overall, this Bosch is a good buy and is reassuringly good quality and should last a good few years too. I have decided to team my new 'water baby' with a sleek two slot single slice width black Graef toaster to match it, which I have also reviewed on Amazon.

Actually, maintaining the water at a hot temperature will take more energy than letting it cool and reboiling so it won't save energy - it's just slightly more convenient than re-boiling

By 'saving energy' I actually meant that users could save themselves the effort of pushing the re-boil button again; I did not mean they would save money on their electricity bill [wink]
