What we liked

  • The dual water gauges and their size (they’re large!)
  • Its large capacity
  • Has cord storage under the base to keep the benchtop tidy
  • Cool touch handle and finger guard for safety
  • Concealed element for safety and convenience
  • Its very reasonable price ($89 RRP)

And what we didn’t

  • The polished chrome surface could be tainted by fingermarks
