Great Product with Limitations

We decided to buy the kettle and toaster from John Lewis because of previous experience of good service.
Ordered online and delivered to store the following day. The item was securely packaged and easy enough for a one person to carry.
The toaster and kettle are a modern design and suits the surroundings of our kitchen. We are a two person family.
Some have commented on how noisy the kettle is - but we found this is no big deal. The same opinion applies to the beep sound when the kettle has boiled. The temperature settings for tea and coffee are really useful. The capacity of the kettle is a little too large for us (6 cups) and sometimes the water level is a little difficult to see, however it’s not the end of the world and only a small point when considered against the style (superb!) and colour. It is easy to handle and fill with water.
Regarding the toaster. Again, we are delighted with the design and colour. The temperature settings are sensitive and accurate. However we respectively disagree with the view that bread is toasted evenly. Ours has a distinct difference with evenness when placing one slice in the toaster and even more so when two slices are toasted. Based on this, we are not sure that the toaster deserves a recommendation.
However we happily recommend the kettle.

thank you

An excellent product

Well, it's not cheap. But you get what you pay for. This is solidly built, nice to use, and it's pretty fast.
It has a scale which you can use (after a bit of experimenting) to ensure that you only boil what you need (a minus point is that it's under the handle and not the most visible thing in the world).
I haven't used the 70/80/90 temperature selections as I like everything really hot. I do use the 'keep warm' feature; I can be lazy, put the kettle on and come back to boiling water 5 minutes later after preparing a snack, for example.
The only small gripe is the 'beep' alarm. No obvious way to turn it off. It beeps when you turn it on, and again when it boils (but not if you've pressed 'keep warm'). And it has the same beep as the Bosch freezer, washing machine and dryer - confusing at times!
Overall, though, I love it.

Good value well made product

I am very happy with my purchase. I chose the white version as it is less dominating in my kitchen. First impressions are of a good buy. My only criticism is the noisy, and seemingly unnecessary alarm signal at the commencement and finish of boiling.

Wobbly bottom!

I bought this kettle on recommendation. It's a smart addition to my kitchen.
All the other negative reviews of this kettle bemoan the loud beep - frankly, that's something I can live with.
What hasn't been mentioned elsewhere, though, and what I've discovered with my kettle, is that it doesn't sit snugly on its base; it has a slight wobble which becomes a worryingly dangerous wobble when the kettle boils.
The fact that nobody else has mentioned this makes me think I've bought a faulty kettle... Back to JL in the morning, then.

Great Kettle

Really delighted with this fast efficient kettle. Some reviews don't like the beep when you switch it on and when the water has boiled. I think it is a great idea - it reminds me I put the kettle on! It looks great too. Very pleased with it.

Great kettle, annoying beep.

Kettle works well, handles well, looks good. The full-size lid opens smoothly and easily, doesn't drip condensed water (like my old kettle did) and is wide enough to fill easily from a filter jug. Although behind the handle, the wide level indicator is easy to see and read. Kettle boils quickly (3.1kW). I almost always heat to 100 degrees, but the ability to set a lower temperature when appropriate is useful – the last 10 degrees uses quite a lot of power. Overall a pleasure too use.
The only downside – which loses a rating star – is the beep, which I knew about in advance thanks to comments here, and which was kindly demonstrated in store. I'd be happy with a short 'beep' on boiling, but this is a long (1 second) and loud 'BEEEP'. Even more unnecessary is the slightly longer beep that tells me I've just pressed the button. Impossible to make a sneaky cup of tea in the early morning without the family (or neighbours) knowing.

Product information
With its precise four temperature LED control for various drinks plus a glossy and stainless steel finish, the Bosch Styline kettle boasts both brains and beauty.
Different hot drinks, such as green tea and coffee, require different water temperatures for the best taste results. Fortunately, the Styline kettle enables you to heat the water to the specific temperature and will even maintain the setting if required.
The eco design saves up to 66% energy over a conventional kettle and there’s even an acoustic signal to let you know when your water is heated. Pouring is easy too, thanks to the ant-slip soft touch handle.
Boil dry and overheat protection, as well as the double wall cool-touch housing also provide extra peace of mind.
