4 Reasons For
Boil-Dry Protection
The Bosch TWK7S05 has a boil-dry protection, whereas the Smeg KLF01 does not.

'Boil-dry protection' is a special system that stops the kettle from boiling if there isn't a minimum amount of water in it.

Power

'Power' is a measurement of the power of the kettle, measured in watts.

A kettle with more power will be able to heat a larger quantity of water faster, making it more efficient.

Water Level Indicator

'Water Level Indicator' denotes whether the kettle clearly shows the current amount of water in the tank.

A water level indicator makes it easy to see how much water is left in the kettle, and whether it needs to be topped up or not.
