MarshalN: Braun Impressions WK600 kettle used

Postby MarshalN » Jun 14th, '13, 14:48

I have one Wk600 kettle that I used for a few years. Info below

http://www.braunhousehold.com/global/Al ... x63214701/

It has a US plug and US voltage (110v), so it should work for US and Canada. I stupidly packed it with me to Hong Kong when I moved, which is rather silly. I'd just like to give it a home where it'll be used instead of just throwing it away. I'll send it to whoever claims it first. As "payment" I ask that you donate $20 to a charity. If it arrives dead somehow I'll pay you back the $20. Let's see if this works.

Hi L,
How much do you think shipping to the US would run? Thanks. I have the plastic version, but it died on me.

MarshalN, That kettle can be used in the Philippines. I bet you have some Filipinos around you that would be happy to carry it home w/ them when they go back.

I'm not charging for shipping.

Hmm, it would work in the Phillipines? Didn't realize that - need to check that out, but I guess it makes sense.

If still in time, I'll chime in for it. They work well for larger tea gatherings. Thank you for offering.

For the record the Phils uses 220V (just like HK), so that kettle wouldn't have been much good there!

Jayinhk, It was different: In 1990-95 in the Philippines, I saw both electrical currents in use. I often stayed in rooms w/ no in-room toilet, no a/c, etc.; yet, some of those rooms had one outlet for 220 & one for 110. I realize now that is almost 2 decades ago.

Ethan, that is interesting--where in the Philippines was that? As far as I've been visiting (since 82 or so?) it's been 220V.

1989 - 92, I often stayed in cheap places on & around Adriatico street in Malate & Mabini sections of Manila where the two currents were available.
Early 90s in Angeles (former home of USA's Clark Airforce base) the "American" electrical system prevailed the few years that I was there (starting 1 year after the American military was kicked out). The USA-built power plants & grids were vandalized but outages in Angeles were only for an hour usually while Manila's went most of the day.
Adriatico Street was often full of smoke & noise from generators during the time of the "brownouts" which were scheduled but came ahead of the schedule & lasted past it.

Ah ok, many of the older hotels in that area still offer both voltages and I've seen that around the world as a lot of Americans need 110V for their electric shavers and the like. Virtually nobody else has 110V in the Philippines now unless they have a step down converter.

Brownouts are much less common in Manila today (still a big problem other places), and Malate is a pretty darn rough neighborhood. I've got a lot of stories that wouldn't be appropriate for this board!
