Also, as this is a "GB" model, you won't have to worry about an EU plug, I'd imagine (happens quite a bit with electrical items from Amazon Warehouse)!

too many bad , alarming reviews



Does seem about half good/half bad from looking at the reviews. I don't have this kettle, so can't really comment further.38010687-GqkH3.jpgGood reviews on AO dot com here so not sure what's up.

You think Bosch you think quality is assured.

But the reviews and photos of purchasers tell a different story.

Sorry LouLou.

I need a kettle asap. But it won't be this one

Well Mr S wrote his critical review in March 2018 for a kettle he bought August 2018

One of my first Amazon Warehouse purchases was a Russell Hobbs temperature control kettle (EU plug, which I cut off and re-wired, let's hope the member who got pompous with me on that subject doesn't reappear)..but that spoilt me - just over a fiver!

Yeah, not sure what to make of those reviews. They veer from glowing to scathing. Looking for a kettle for my sister atm.

It does look more time machine than kettle
Some dodgy reviews mind(confused)
Poor reviews and it's not even 5 stars and the photo looks like it's had it's days. If it was new then it would've been ok for £10.00 but it's like new and you can't trust this kettle for that price
Are all these "like new" models all the ones that have been returned due to people not being happy with it

It's just an Amazon stock photo, not sure I understand your point about the picture (?)

I can't add any more information than I already know/have at my disposal.
Wow, those reviews!

Your previous comment about the Amazon photo and "new" definition didn't make much sense, but, never mind. I didn't read the reviews till after I posted so it was an honest mistake.

I was looking at the photos people posted and it shows the kettle has stains on it and not just inside but outside as well. The like new comment was about the condition it could be in. With reviews like that isn't it best to buy a new kettle and not half used one

I thought people had a good idea what to expect from Amazon Warehouse by now, I've ordered from there for years, usually with success. And a few surprises!

Like New tends to be just that, usually open box or a return. Unfortunately, Amazon's grading is not consistent but Like New should be fine (condition-wise).
The bad reviews are not just on Amazon. I had a look at other retailers including John Lewis and Debenhams where there are also a number of bad reviews because the kettle started leaking after a short time. Interestingly JL no longer sell this kettle.

Made in China I expect?
Live in a town, so no good for me.
STAY CLEAR - it dribbles every time I use it. Considering it's Bosch I was expecting good quality. Complete waste of money!
The UK is definitely the place to unload the crap that other people sent back.
Amazon really does understand it's marketplaces.

I bought a Russell Hobbs when I first bought my house 8 years ago. Still going strong like the day I bought it.

Yes I checked Debenhams reviews and all of them said the kettle is leaking after 3 months. Stay clear no point buying this kettle
In these days of much misinformation about the EU it should be clarified that the plug on these is not an "EU" plug, no such thing exists. It is a Europlug.

Great price.
My wife bought a very expensive (£70) Bosch kettle a while ago - it lasted three years before it started to leak. It was a known fault with this model and lots of people had the same issue.

Bosch did offer to repair it for the cost of parts but having read that they tend to leak again, I politely declined and have never (and will never) buy another Bosch product again.

It's so hard buying a kettle these days. There's not one that stands out. So I just bought a Simple kettle from Argos for a fiver and it just works.

I used the Shopping Comparisons to find reviews - did look for John Lewis without success. I'm guessing this model is being phased out - or it could be customer concerns.

Not that I have much exposure (or something) to these plugs, but I know one variant is the Schuko plug, many many people online refer to them as EU plugs (probably British people), so that's what I call them.

Thought I'd had mine longer, was 2016 and more than a fiver, haha. It was during one of those long Amazon Warehouse 20% sale threads (when Amazon reduced EVERYTHING on Warehouse, which they rarely do now).38013081-nrPhX.jpg

Schuko is a trademarked product from the 1920's long before the EEC began, 2 pin systems have operated throughout Europe and a result of trying to harmonise or create a standard. It is a Europlug.
Just because many many people call it an EU plug does not mean they are right... just like many other things right now.

I'm sure there are much more important topics to "correct" people about on the internet than the definition of an electrical plug!

I was implying that you were being pedantic. The plug supplied with kettles in Europe wouldn't even be the Europlug as you have stated. The Europlug is the Type C plug< and it isn't suitable for kettle amperage. However, the Schuko plug which is Type F plug<, is suitable. You'll find Type F plugs for kettles, computers, monitors etc but not Type C plugs.

So in fact calling it a Schuko plug (Type F) would be correct but not Europlug (Type C).

Is there a term for correcting the corrector other than pwnage?

Edit: And yes, the kettle did have a Schuko plug.

I'll bow to your superior knowledge yet the point stands that it is not an EU plug.
