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.

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.
