The boiler is very well made and until the last two weeks has been working very well, but now the re=set button keeps popping out.
Bought as a brewing boiler, it’s very good. This review can be taken at two levels, for general hot water provision for catering, or as a boiler for home brewing purposes. The unit is of a sturdy stainless steel construction with good quality high density plastic fittings, the photo is old the design is updated with the side handles also acting as a lid securing closure. 5kw not the 3kw as quoted elsewhere) is fitted with the base and accessed underneath giving the heating vessel a flat internal base with a slight recess to capture mineral deposits making it very easy to clean. With a 25 ltr water volume it heats from 10’c to a rolling boil in 1hr 10 mins (key staging on this is: 10 to 70 = 45 mins; 70 to 90’c +15 mins & 90 to a boil +10 mins). The unit has a genuine 30ltr capacity which gives sufficient head space to safely accommodate a rolling boil with water. The lid fits well with two vents and has a `lug and twist’ securing method which is very easy to engage. The tap is robust and positive. It is a sound well-made unit and would be a good catering asset.
This is a great product, it is very easy to use, it is so quiet and heats up really quick. One of the best products i have ever bought.

I’m very impressed with this. Bought it for church for the refreshments. Holds 30 litres which you manually fill. It takes nearly an hour full a full amount, but then you can keep it hot with adjustable dial.
Easy to achieve required temperature and adjust the control to. Purchased for our school events and it works very well. Did plenty of research and this one ticked all the boxes. Easy to achieve required temperature and adjust the control to maintain it.
This was bought for cleaning (boiling) bees wax for recycling. This was bought for cleaning (boiling) bees wax for recycling. It does the job perfectly and boils much faster that my original burco which is probably 30 odd years old and has about given up the ghost.
