Bosch TWK8612P KitchenAid KEK1222
6 Reasons For
Bigger Water Tank Capacity
The Bosch TWK8612P is a 1.5L electric kettle. That's 0.25L bigger than the KitchenAid KEK1222 (1.25L).

'Water Tank Capacity' is the maximum capacity of water that the kettle can hold at a time.

A bigger water tank means that more water can be heated at once, meaning you'll need to fill up the kettle less.

Read more Read less | Edit
Adjustable Thermostat
The Bosch TWK8612P has an adjustable thermostat, however the KitchenAid KEK1222 does not have this feature.

'Adjustable Thermostat' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

This is useful if you don't need boiling water, and makes the kettle more versatile.

Read more Read less | Edit
Preprogrammed Temperatures
The Bosch TWK8612P supports preprogrammed temperatures, but the KitchenAid KEK1222 does not.

'Pre-Programmed Temperatures' denotes whether you can change how hot the kettle heats the water to.

Changable temperatures makes the kettle more versatile, and means you can easily serve up warm water rather than boiling if the need arises.

Read more Read less | Edit
Boil-Dry Protection
The Bosch TWK8612P has a boil-dry protection, however the KitchenAid KEK1222 does not have this feature.

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

Running the kettle without any water in can damage the appliance and stop it from working. Boil-dry protection stops this from happening.

Read more Read less | Edit
Keep Warm Function
The Bosch TWK8612P has a keep warm function, but the KitchenAid KEK1222 does not have this feature.

A 'keep warm function' on a kettle serves to keep the water hot over a longer period of time.

This is useful if you're not planning on using the heated water immediately, or need access to hot water on the spot, and don't want to have to wait for it to heat up again.

Better Brand
Bosch electric kettles have an average rating of 80.8%, whereas KitchenAid only has an average rating of 61.3%.
6 Reasons For
Automatic Shut Off System
The KitchenAid KEK1222 has an automatic shut off system, whereas the Bosch TWK8612P does not.

'Auto Shut-Off System' denotes whether the kettle has a system to automatically shut off power in the event of a fault, to stop potential damage to the appliance.

An automatic shut off system helps to safeguard in the case of a fault with the appliance, meaning the chance of an electrical fire is greatly reduced.

Read more Read less | Edit
