  • “I love this little water kettle! It doesn’t take up too much space unlike my older water kettle which was even bulky to boot. Also loving its efficiency, it takes like a few minutes for tap water to be boiling hot and it’s great for my tea.”
  • “Currently, I live alone and this compact kettle works fine for me. Been using it a lot on a regular basis and is perfect to boil water that can be placed inside a large travel mug – it can be for hot cocoa, tea or coffee, I pick whatever I feel like drinking for the day.”
  • “I’ve been working with kettles on stovetops for quite a while and a friend convinced me to try out the Bodum kettle since it works faster and is more efficient. Never looked back ever since I got the cute little water kettle. Now I’m enjoying my coffee fix every morning even more.”
  • “Love this kettle, I’ve been using it regularly every day. Works great for my morning tea!”

  • “Never content with the thermos that I bring often to camping trips so I’ve decided to look up for an electric kettle and this one caught my eye. It was love at first sight but ended up liking it even more during use. It’s compact, I can bring it around to my office or even in my study room. I have no regrets buying this water kettle.”

Summary:

All in all, the Bodum Bistro is a great entry choice water kettle to purchase. It is best summed up as simple but effective. The minimal features this kettle has are just enough for it to do its job. The only problem about the Bodum Bistro is that it might not appeal to everyone because some folks do not trust using plastic kettles and would rather settle for stainless steel ones instead even though it is made out of safe materials.
