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 219 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Graet purchase We found the hot cup easy to use, stylish, and economical only boiling the amount of water you need, the only fault is it heats just short of boiling so your tea goes cold quite quickly. 03 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Breville VKJ142 HotCup The Breville Hotcup is very easy and clean to use, also "boils" very quickly, I find that the waters NOT boiling hot, if you use a mug for your drink then its ok,anything small then the water boils over the top. and if you have a few friends round then a normal kettle would be better as you have to boil and boil again. As I drink a few cups a day I seem always to be filling the "kettle" up ... overall a good bit of kit for what it is designed for....a quick mug of water for one.. 05 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good idea good price for a good idea, boils quickly with a good size mug, only draw back is the water only reaches 91 deg c. 11 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice n Easy in just 30 secs your cuppa is ready :) only downside is it's a lil noisey other than that it's greatttt !! 11 January 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, quick kettle Pleased with purchase only down side is it can be noisy at times, would recommend for a quick brew 10 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by good purchase The kettle is a bit noisy but boils very quickly I think it is good value and would recommend. 23 December 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by good buy very pleased with our one cup kettle, good way to save on electic 18 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent at making 1 cup Would buy aging at this price. Last one lasted 5 year 20 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by one cup star quality I bought this for myself as I have arthritis in my hands, it is not too big in size, I get 5 to 6 average cups of almost instant hot water before its empty ( although I never let it run that low) you can fill it up while it's preparing hot water as the tank does not warm up, only the water coming out is heated. I liked it so much based on it is easy to use and does what it says on the pack that I got another 2 for relatives as a present as they liked it too. 14 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant for weak wrists My aunt broke her wrist recently, and although she has recovered and is doing brilliantly specially for an 87 year old, but when I visited her I noticed she held the kettle at an angle and realised that the kettle was a little heavy for her when half full, I saw the Breville one cup kettle and got her one and also got one for myself, My kettle is now not used, no more lifting heavy kettles and no more loud noise for 2-3 minutes at a time. Excellent product 25 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent cost savings The one cup is fantastic. As the name suggests it produces a single cup of tea or coffee in an instant thereby just boiling enough water needed. Just put a tea bag or coffee into a cup, press the switch and you have a cup of hot tea/coffee in an instant. If you want a second cup, this only takes seconds to produce. It can also be used for other requirements i.e. making gravy in a jug. It looks good and would fit in any kitchen albeit it modern or retro. 06 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great buy, very happy at present (touch wood) very happy with the way it fits in my kitchen and that it makes a cup of tea/coffee very quick and also only boils/uses a precise amount of water whichis energy efficient and means i dont boil more water than i need or reboil the same water more than once; so water does not 'taste stale' so hygienic too with the cup under the nozzle. Only down point is it takes a few times to get enough water for gravy for the sunday roast lol 01 March 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well worth it at the sale price anyway I like anything that can save waste. The fact that you only use the exact amount of electricity to boil the water for your cuppa will save lots of electricity. Make sure that you are aware that it dispenses an exact measure of water and that means enough for a large mug, check before you go for it. The unit looks quite smart on the worktop. Not sure about reliability long term but been using it for a week without any problems. 14 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Returned kettle The kettle worked too well as it dispensed far too much water each time. The box tells you that it will dispense 5 cups each fill. This one just managed 4. I was fobbed off by the Breville help desk who tried to tell me that it was working within its tolerances. I use mugs but this still filled the largest to the brim. It is a pity as the price is good and the one with an adjustment for the water is nearly double the price. 18 February 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by breville very disappointed, water not hot enough for a decent cuppa, boils water 19/20secs I feel it is not long enough. The first cup of water is definitely not hot a a cup of tea, the second not to bad, it has been a waste of money, wanted to save on energy but wasted money instead. 08 November 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by stylish coffee I saw one of these at my son's house. I was looking for the kettle. I liked it so much as it will only boil one cup of water at a time and therefore is economical. It also looks good! You do need a larger cup or mug or it will fill to the brim.I have heard that there are kettles like this where you can choose the size of the cup to be filled.I like it and it was money well spent although I have 3 other working kettles. 01 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Saves wasting time 'watching and waiting for kettl I purchased one cup boil kettle previously. I find that you can put cup under, put on for boil go away, do something else, cut a bit of cake or whatever, kettle boiled tea / coffee ready. Excellent. Only slight down size is you do need to check size of cup prior to you using it, although these days you can buy one with variable amount it boils,BUT I feel this is too expensive for what it is. Mine more than happy with. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by wish I had one sooner Living on my own and drinking tea by the gallon the kettle was always on the boil. With this fabulous Hot Cup which boils the water in seconds I definitely must be saving on my electric bill. It is a nice looking product which has been very much admired. The noise when the water has boiled is very loud but at least if you were in another room you would hear it.I am very pleased with it and would highly recommend it. 28 December 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by love it purchased this because it was an excellent price and being from Asda I knew I could return it with no problem if I did not like it, but I love it, its looks nice in the kitchen it BOILS the water in 30 seconds my only complaint if I can call it that is the noise it makes when it dispenses the water but that's for a couple of seconds so I can put up with that for the convenience of having a very quick cuppa 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost instant hot water! Excellent value product. Dispenses exact amount of boiling water REALLY quickly. Remember to put the mug underneath the dispenser BEFORE pressing the button though! May also buy the slightly more expensive model as this give choice of water quantity to dispense, so can use for espresso coffee etc. Really like this as it means we can use our favourite products without the need for an expensive pod system. 26 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! I bought this a my kettle was leaking and a friend had just bought a Hot Cup and told me that Asda were selling them at a reduced price. I absolutely love it! It fills a decent sized mug with boiling water at the touch of a button. It looks stylish and the noise is no louder than a boiling kettle. My mum saw it and wanted one too. I ordered another and it arrived at my chosen store the next day. 01 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent time saver I bought this as boiling a kettle whether half full or not seemed to take what seemed forever so I thought this would be a great way to save time esp in the mornings when its already a rushed time of the day! It is an excellent product that I am extremely glad I purchased and even though it is a little noisey I love it! Have already recommended this to several friends and family members. 26 November 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for a gimmick I saw this and thought it was a pretty cool addition to my kitchen, it's a great but if it and you get your hot water much quicker than a conventional kettle. However if you like to cheat and pre boil your water before putting it in the hob for cooking then it's impractical you only get 1 mug per boil so you need to do it several times. That said it's still a good buy 30 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great coffee Ordered this and received it when stated actually it was a day early for a click n collect at store. Does exactly what it should. Boils just enough for a full cup and it is hot. Only fault is the coffee/tea doesn't stay hot for too long. I tend to leave my drink n come back to it later and it doesn't hold the heat for too long otherwise no faults. Happy with purchase. 03 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quickest cuppa ever! This is my second one of these, the first lasted 3 years with lots and lots of use. Breville do a larger one but I have a small kitchen and it does the job for me. Asda was the cheapest, even with delivery... Which was super quick. Bought one for my nan too, so she doesn't have to pick up a heavy hot kettle, she then bought one for her blind neighbour.... 24 March 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by okay for the money I have just replaced my old Breville with the same. Although it is not the best there is it is the cheapest, I have found they soon make a loud noise when pouring, They do not tend to last that long as the machine ceases to turn off unless u turn it off at the socket, On saying that you get what you pay for, if you want the best you have to pay the price. 01 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good looking This is a very good looking piece of equipment. As of yet I haven't used it only tried it out. As it issue's a set amount of liquid I only have a couple of mugs to accommodate the water. My old water boiler dispenses any amount so I am uses to that so I will wait until that one breaks down first. Much better looking than the one I am using now though. 02 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great kettle I had the bigger kettle before but went for this smaller one as the bigger one was to heavy. This kettle is wonderful. It gives 3 full mugs of tea or coffee. It's easy to feel up and is not to heavy to carry when full. I like it so much that I have another one in my bedroom for my morning cupped. Oh yes it makes wonderfully instant sauces and gravys. 31 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful product. I was not sure if i would be wasting my money buying this, but it has turned out to be one of the best things i have bought. There is just myself and my husband so is perfect, takes seconds to boil so no waiting and boils the second cup in seconds. I agree with other comments that you can only use a mug not a cup but this is the only negative. 31 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I needed to replace my kettle, as it was old and very noisy and heavy so I have done my research and came across hot water dispenser. It is a great product! Boils water in seconds, takes the same amount of space as normal kettle and is glowing when boiling water. It is easy to fill up water again. I would highly recommend this product. 12 February 2013
