Bosch TWK6033VGB Cordless Jug Kettle – bought for my daughter’s house and she is very pleased with

Bought for someone and they liked it.

A nice reliable no thrills kettle that even 2 years later seem to have no or very little lime scale, cant say much more as to be honest it does what its supposed to.

I chose a bosch kettle due to their reputation for making well made appliances. To be honest, i assumed it was a black steel kettle, but it is in fact plastic. My fault for not researching properly. For a plastic kettle it is quite expensive, you can get cheaper makes for half the price. The water level indicator is useless as its impossible to read. And when you press the button to lift the lid for filling with water, the lid only opens half way. It does boil quite quickly and is as quiet as a kettle needs to be. It doesn’t release much steam, so your kitchen units stay dry. Previous reviews mention problems with leaks. If mine develops any such faults, i wont be replacing it for the same kettle. Here are the specifications for the Bosch TWK6033VGB Cordless Jug Kettle:

  • Quality Gloss Black finish
  • 3100 wattrapid boil
  • 1.7 litre water capacity
  • Cordless with concealed element
  • Bosch 2 year parts and labour guarantee

This is the second bosch kettle that i have had over the years. Believe me, it is so good to look at, but in the main, terrific to handle. My only worry is that perhaps bosch will discontinue it in the future. Make no mistake, i have had numerous kettles, but this definitely is the best one that i’ve ever had. It will be the only kettle that i will be buying – ever. I don’t think for a moment that you will be disappointed.

Great kettle boils water in various quantities and despite living a rather clagged up water area the kettle performs well.

Reviews from purchasers :

I am a bosch fan and didn’t hesitate in purchasing this kettle, however, whilst it looks good and works fine the draw back is that when you press the button to release the lid and fill with water the lid tends to fall forward and is not held in the open position. This results in water from the tap hitting the lid and going everywhere. My previous kettle lids (russell hobbs) never had this problem.

Had this kettle for three years and very well used with not one problem – a great very high quality kettle.

It looks good in my kitchen and is very efficient.

Nearly all our kitchen stuff is bosch. Not had this very long but so far so good. Didn’t get 5 stars because level is hard to see.

Very pleased with item – looks very stylish. Seems quite heavy when full but my previous kettle was smaller capacity.

After eight months use the element has failed – it was fine until then. It was well looked after, it should have lasted longer.

I really like the bosch range and have other products, they are well made and seem to last ages.

Unlike the matching toaster i love this kettle. I normally have delonghi kettles but after having so many faulty ones i decided to buy a cheaper one and i prefer this one so much.

I was so dismayed and sorry to read so many negative experiences with this kettle, i felt i ought to try and redress the balance a bit. I’ve owned this bosch kettle for over a year now and have had no problems at all with it, no leaking, nothing, it just boils water and looks gorgeous. It really is such a such a stunning design, i absolutely love it, and have bought the matching bosch 2 slice toaster black to go with it, again no problems, just a couple of design classics.

We have had this kettle for 18 months now and can’t fault it. We chose it because of the black plastic which is easy to clean, and does not reveal finger marks as our previous stainless steel one did. It is efficient, not too noisy and boils water – perfectwe have not experienced any of the problems outlined by the other reviewers. We live in a hard water area and the limescale does tend to build up – which really regularly clean with vinegar. I would definitely recommend this kettle, and would purchase again.

We live in hard water area and i find that bosch can cope with the amounts of descaling we have to put our kettles through.

This was bought for my daughter’s house and she is very pleased with it.

I have tried all sorts of kettles , i just wanted a kettle that didnt drip everytime i used it, wasnt noisy . I have found it in my bosch kettle , i wouldnt swop it for any other one. Sounds silly but i have had some good named kettles and they are useless, but my bosch is very good , no complaints and if it goes wrong i will buy another one from bosch, also i ordered online and it turned up in a couple of days.

Bosch always comes up trumps .

After two weeks we find the kettle efficient easy to use and reliable. My wife is disabled and finds the kettle very easy to use.

Great kettle, to be honest we bought the wrong one, the one we had seen that we wanted was twice the price, so wasn’t looking forward to getting this one, but now we have it, we love it, so glad we chose it and half the price of the one we originally saw :). 10/10 and matches our toaster perfect.

    If your looking for a no frills reliable kettle then buy this bosch. I bought one over 5 years ago and have boiled the kettle roughly 5 times a day and it only died out a week ago. I estimate it has done close to 10,000 boils in this timeafter buying numerous russel hobbs and philips kettles which died or started leaking within a year i decided to buy this bosch as i have several other bosch product which have all lived up to the ‘german reliability’ claim. The kettle boils very quickly and hold 1. The kettle just stopped working last week but after that amount of boils its done its dutyhave replaced with a bosch styline kettle which i’m also very pleased with you can vary the temperature and it has a keep warm function- i just hope it proves as reliable as this previous bosch kettle.

    Sadly the kettle keeps switching off before it has boiled. I would have expected better of a bosch product.

      Had this kettle just under 2 years and it has just started to leak. We are in a hard water area which does take its toll on electrical appliances and regular descaling is essential, so the kettle leaking didn’t come as a surprise. Fortunately the kettle came with a 2 year guarantee and there was only just 6 weeks left of the guarantee so i contacted bosch by email, they rang me within a couple of days and gave me a returns number, emailed me a prepaid label and instructions on returning the kettle. I posted the kettle back to them on a friday and the following wednesday i received a brand new kettle, no quibble. Have given this 4 stars as i really like this kettle which has lasted the longest of all the kettles we’ve had in the past including those that were nearly £100 and the fact that the customer service from bosch was outstanding.

    We’ve had this for a few weeks now. It works very well thought the lid does not exactly spring open when the release button is pressed, so to fill the kettle to need to push the button then pull back the lid which is less than ideal. It’s quick to boil, the water gauge is easy to read, the switch is well positioned and has a simple action. Pouring water from the spout does not make a mess and the kettle fits easily back onto its base. Bosch have made an effective, if not quite beautiful, product here.

    This ‘quality’ product was purchased with the intent of having a long term reliable kettle. One feature we like is the flip up lid, very easy to fill. However this flip up only partially worked resulting in a scolding hazard when topping up after boiling. Something i did not realise we did very often. Amazon sent a replacement very swiftly (though they were not interested in the fault). The replacement kettle was even worse so amazon arranged a full refund and we are looking to buy from a shop were we can trial the lid.

    Great design and easy to use, plus it complements my kitchen. Highly practical yet good on the eye and value for money.

        I also bought a bosch electric kettle and have the same leak problems. It is the “private collection” model and made of plastic. It started leaking just after the warranty expired. I had bought the kettle because of the bosch name. Do not be fooled this is a badly designed or manufactured and should have been fixed by the manufacture a long time ago as they must be aware of this defect. My office also bought this kettle and it leaked the first time it was used. It was returned to the shop from where it was purchased.
