Breville VKJ142 1.5L HotCup Kettle - Gloss Black Reviews


The VKJ142 Breville HotCup dispenses boiling water in seconds at the touch of button.

The contemporary, gloss black and stainless steel design looks great in any kitchen and dispenses up to five cups/mugs without re-filling. Its patented design means you only boil one cup at a time, helping to save time, money and energy. The one-touch operation is ideal for those who cannot lift a heavy kettle while the removable drip tray keeps your worktop mess-free.

Filling is easy thanks to the lid-release button and the illumination in boil mode gives a soft blue glow to your kitchen.

    Hi, here are the measurements when the kettle is on the stand; just under 30cm high (it slopes so this is the highest point) & the base is 28cm x 17cm. Hope this helps!

    Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 229 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 perfect i just love this item, i had tried another make of one cup kettle but it didnt bring the water to a hot enough tempeture where this one has perfect one cup of steaming hot water in no time and it looks so modern and funky when it lights up blue when boiling :) 15 September 2012
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Good toy water tank too small I bought 3 of these at what I considered a reasonable price. It looks pretty and does what it says on the description. The downsides are the water capacity you are for ever filling the tank tank and more importantly the design makes it really awkward to fill. 02 September 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by On my scecond Breville one cup Bought my first 6 years ago and I've used it constantly every day, I had no hesitation to buy another when it finally packed in. Asda has been the cheapest on the internet and have a great pick up point that makes things really easy with no postage costs. 27 January 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Loved it, BUT The handle developed a leak. Replaced with another one and got exactly the same problem, but worse!! It's fantastic apart from the leak. I have upgraded to the more expensive model with variable cup size and stop flow. I hope that doesn't develop a leak!! 12 January 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Idea - Bought this water heater/kettle mainly to make it safer and easier for my Partner to make himself a hot drink if I am not around - only slight thing is the cable is very short needs to be close to socket or on extension lead - despite this very good item 14 January 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Top quality Very nice product in black and Crome. It's excellent for making a single cuppa when you're busy and if you're someone who cares about the environment it only consumes electricity for the drink that you've made and doesn't heat the entire contents. 04 December 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase Bought this as I have taken early retirement so am at home more The kettle was going on by the minute boiling too much water using too much electricity. This boils the water needed at a quick speed I am very pleased with it and would recommend it 11 February 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Concept I think this product is great, especially for single people. Very quick, just push the button and in 30-40 seconds you have your drink. It's my second machine, the first lasting over 5 years, making up to 15 cups a day. So it seems very durable. 29 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great one cup kettle only draw back is its a bit of a shame you cant get it to know your cup size as it does give a big mug full so a cup would over flow I know u can stop it manually but this takes the fun out of it very smart and quick and great value for money 15 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product saves time& money. Brilliant kettle. Mug of boiling water in approx 10 seconds. Much quicker than boiling a normal kettle and will therefore save money on electricity costs. Takes up less room than my previous kettle. I would highly recommend this product. 25 March 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not happy I ended up returning this as I was not happy with it. Yes it heats one cup at a time but if you are using a small cup it overflows. I used a mug and it topped up to the brim leaving no room for milk. I also found it to be very noisy 08 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful machine. This is just the thing for us,we're both disabled and lifting hot kettles is becoming more and more difficult. With this machine that is not necessary you just press a button and a cupful of boiling water is dispensed. Fills a mug! 15 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best pressie for my mom Bought this for a Christmas present for my Mom, as my Dad passed away a few weeks ago, and my Aunt has one and she thought it was ideal for someone living on their own. Well she hasn't stopped raving about it since!!! Fab buy 27 December 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Should've got one ages ago! Easy to use, would be great for elderly, young, or disabled folk - much safer than wielding a hot kettle. Energy efficient and means I can pop the cup under and go off to do something and come back to my drink ready made. 17 March 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient kettle Bought as a present because I already own this kettle. Would happily endorse this product, perfect for people who live alone or who want to save money on energy bills as it boils enough water for one cup of tea / coffee. 21 December 2011
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Useful and well worth buy Bought this product for my disabled mother in order for her to make herself a hot drink whilst I'm at work. She really likes it and uses it every day and it is very easy to use. Would recommend this product to anyone. 11 January 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by below expectations I purchased product used it and it doesn't allow the control of the amount of water it just dispense in a glass full amount of water without control. I expected a controlled quantity and it just pour automatically. 03 September 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great love it a must this is just first class fast and hot every time , just wish i got this years ago , will be good to take on holls camping as well, tea coffee for 1 2 3 people its just fab and at asda price its great value as well 23 January 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value for money Purchased this for my son as we have one in our house and are really pleased with it, at this price it is a great buy and wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone getting one of these, in fact my mother has one also. 01 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I love this so much more convenient tha a kettle. Didn't expect my husband to like as he hates change (brought because he over fills kettle but he doesn't know lol) but he lives it too. Would recommend to anyone 12 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Best appliance so far I have problems with my hands and so not having to lift a heavy kettle has been a boon. This kettle is so quick and easy I don't know how I have managed without it. Bought my mum one and she loves it too. 15 September 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as we thought Sorry I am returning this as you cannot control the water. I bought this as a present. I have had a hot cup heater for a while, so have two of my children, but we can control the water more easily.Sorry. 24 February 2013
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Dose not taste like a normal kettle Bought this and had an excellent deal. I have given it 3 stars as mt tea just dose not taste the same, I boiled my normal kettle and this one and my partner even noticed a slight different taste in tea 05 March 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but not brilliant It's a great kettle but you can't change the amount of water that come out or stop it once it's started so if you have a cup a bit to small it will over flow and you can't top up if your cup is large. 10 January 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good invention I've already bought the larger version for my daughter snd was impressed. But as I live alone I bought myself the smaller variety. It's a good product, the only fault is the cup size cannot be varied. 12 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy with arrival of first child With everyone coming to visit it is proving more convenient to make one cup at a time instead of always having to boil the kettle. Already purchased ones to give to other family members. Great buy. 19 March 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Despite running lots of water through the product, we were unable to get rid of a horrible plastic taste. I returned the item and now looking at alternatives as the idea and concept appeals to me. 01 January 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Different This is great convient for a quick cuppa downside it's noisey and you will need a kettle for cooking ie filling up pan for rice/pasta of boiled water also flasks etc Ideal product for drinks only 17 February 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by great product I love this, as much faster than a kettle + looks cool too! The only bad point is my cup I use is slightly bigger than average so the 1 cup dispenses too little water , but spot on for most cups. 12 January 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great time saver. Bought this as most of the time we make one mug of tea at a time and this dispenses just enough water for that. Saves measuring water into a kettle and wasting time waiting for a kettle to boil. 04 February 2015
