"We have had two of these... The first lasted about 2 or 3 years, the second failed after about 18 months. Neither were used continuously - they just became unusable.
They both exhibited the same fault... the heater repeatedly cut out - from cold. The tank was half full so that was not the issue... Both thermal switches were OK so I suppose they use a rubbish element...
It would seem expensive is not always a guarantee of quality :-("

Review 2 for BOSCH PTL 1 WALLPAPER STRIPPER NO SIZE
"The big problem with this product is the steam hose that connect the boiler unit to the hand held wall pad. The hose has an inner clear hose which withstands heat but has little strength. The outer hose has the strength required but does not withstand the heat from the inner hose. The result is that after a short time using the wallpaper stripper, the outer hose starts to fracture at the point where it joins the hand held wall pad. Eventually it breaks altogeather and it cannot be repaired. R.I.P Bosch wallpaper stripper!"
