The kettle appears to be well constructed, with no obvious design flaws. The exterior has the standard spout, handle and lid. Nothing out of the ordinary there. In terms of materials, the body of the kettle is made from stainless steel. The handle and filter are made from plastic. The lid is made from a combination of stainless steel and hard black plastic.

We now delve into a bit more detail:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, or around about 7 cups of tea/coffee at a time.
  • Package Dimensions - 28cm x 25cm x 20cm.
  • Weight - 1.48kg, around about average.
  • Power - 3000W, the same as the majority of kettles.
  • Rapid Boil - The TWK78B01GB Kettle has been specifically designed to rapidly boil water, allowing you to have a quick cup of coffee or tea before leaving for work or taking the kids to school.
  • 360 Degree Base - The base is conveniently 360 degrees, meaning you can place the kettle on it with ease. Perfect for a mix of left and right handed users.
  • Push Button Lid - The lid can be opened by a simple push button mechanism which sits on top of the handle. It's placed in that position to allow you to open the lid with one hand. Useful if you're in a hurry.
  • Filter - There's a small filter which sits behind the spout. Its primary purpose is to reduce the amount of limescale entering your drink, therefore making it look and taste better.
  • Boil Dry Protection - If the boiling process is started without any water in the kettle, then it will automatically switch itself off.
  • Automatic Shut Off - Once up to temperature, the kettle will automatically switch itself off.


Overall, the Bosch TWK78B01GB Jug Kettle is a good kettle. In terms of style, it suits most modern kitchens. Its features are numerous, and a lot of thought has definitely gone into it. It's by no means a premium kettle, but most people would find it perfectly adequate. In terms of durability, it appears to be well constructed, and judging by other reviews, most people seem to be happy with it. We rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
