Temperature controlled kettle

Anyone recommend a particular one based on longevity?

Just had to return a 1 month old one to Aldi (our 2nd from there after the first lasted about 3 years); set it to 80, it stopped heating after about 30 seconds and started itself at 100 5mins later.

Temperature controlled kettle

We have this Bosch one. Been very good so far. The keep warm function is very handy.

Edited as I found the right one

We have this one https://www.cuisinart.co.uk/jug-kett...U.html#start=1
Only had it since Christmas so can't comment on longevity. Decent kettle though.

Was leaning towards the Bosch TWK8631GB at £59.99

https://www.argos.co.uk/product/4239712

then read some of the recent reviews on Amazon in 'Recent' order and some poor feedback. The opposite on Argos. Who do you believe!

No, but I can definitely see the advantage to one - going to keep an eye on the thread

Very handy to have a kettle that you can set a water temperature. We live at 1100m above sea level and water simply can't get to 100C . Some kettles work, others boil continuously and don't shut off.

We've got one of the original bosch ones. 6 years old and leaking from underneath. Spoke to Bosch to said send it in for review and if not fixable will offer a discount on a new one.

Great being able to set the temperature and 30 min keep warm function is handy
