We begin by listing the technical information of the Bosch TWK7603GB Village Kettle. We will then discuss its durability and its shape and style.


A brief summary of the features of the Bosch TWK7603GB Village Collection Kettle is as follows:

1. Materials: Plastic
2. Colour: Black, White, Beige
3. Weight: 939 grams
4. Dimensions: 15.0cm x 22.5cm x 23.5cm
5. Capacity: 1.7 litres (large)
6. Wattage: 3000 watts
7. Cordless Kettle: Yes.

As for additional features, the Bosch TWK7603GB has the following:

1. Auto Shut-Off. The kettle features an auto shut-off mechanism meaning that when the water has boiled it will turn itself off to save energy and indicate that the water is ready for use.

2. Boil Dry Protection. It is recommended that there is at least 0.25 litres being boiled in the kettle. If the water in the kettle is boiled away then it will automatically shut itself off to prevent problems and save energy.

3. Concealed Heating Element. The TWK7603GB has, along with most modern kettles, a hidden heating element. This has the advantage of helping keep the water clean and free of limescale. It will also help keep the heating element running at high efficiency as it ages.

4. Flip Top Lid. The kettle has a flip top lid. If you press the button on the handle then the lid will flip open allowing you to refill or clean out the kettle. A flip top lid is better than a removable lid because it is easier to open and it also keeps all of the components together.

5. 360 Degree Base. The kettle can rotate a full circle on its base. This gives you the advantage of easily being able to put the kettle down on the base after filling or emptying it.

6. External Water Level Indicator. There is an external water level indicator marking the litre volume heights 0.3 (minimum), 0.5, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.5 (maximum).

Durability and Maintenance

Most people have reported that the Bosch TWK7603GB kettle is durable. Both the flip top lid mechanism and the on-off button are strong and well connected to the kettle.

Cleaning the kettle is easy. A damp cloth should easily do the trick. The spout and opening at the top are large enough to make cleaning inside the kettle easy.


The kettle comes in three colours, namely black, white and beige. The exterior of the kettle is made of plastic as opposed to stainless steel. The flip top lid button is the same colour as the outside of the kettle. The on-off switch is red and translucent. The handle arches from the top of the kettle to the bottom.


Overall the Bosch TWK7603GB Village Collection Kettle is a great kettle. It is relatively compact, features a convenient flip top lid and is particularly fast boiling.
