The Bosch TWK7S05GB Kettle is a modern kettle packed with features. Of particular note is the stainless steel interior, making the kettle perfect for those who prefer to not have a plastic interior. Other features are typical of those found in modern kettles, including a water gauge, cord storage, an illuminating power switch and a large capacity.
In terms of design, the kettle is compact, particularly when compared to most other kettles. The primary colours used are black and grey. The lid is flat, resulting in the design being rather sleek. The kettle has a sturdy black plastic circular handle. There's a band around the body of the kettle, adding to the aesthetics.
We now dig deeper into the features:
As seen below, there's a limescale filter which slots in place behind the spout. This of course reduces the amount of limescale which would otherwise leave the kettle and go into your drink. As a result, your drink tastes less gritty, and is also more visually appealing. Limescale can be removed from the kettle with the usual de-scalers.
Tucked neatly under the handle is a water level indicator. The markings are as follows: 0.5L (minimum), 1.0L, 1.5L and 1.7L (maximum). It's pictured below:
The TWK7S05GB Kettle has a 360 degree base. This means that the base has a circular component in the centre which the kettle can sit on at any angle. This is very useful, particularly if the kettle is going to be used by both left and right handers.
As a bonus, there are non-slip feet on the base.
In summary, the TWK7S05GB Kettle is a strong choice of kettle. Its biggest selling point is the stainless steel interior, contrasting the large number of plastic kettles on the market. It also has many of the features modern kettles have, and this one in particular has a lot of safety features. It's a solid kettle, and we rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
