Summary: good kettle, fairly loud but boils fast so no problem. beep when ready is loud but you get used to it. I would say it is as loud as your microwaves beep. keep warm facility is great and temp control very useful i.e you can heat your water to 70 degrees, handy for my lemsips when I have man flu
Summary: The latest in a long line of Bosch products that I own , and as usual excellent quality and value for money .The variable temperature control and keep warm facility is unique, and very useful .
