Breville VKJ487 - kettle - cream stainless steel Reviews


The Breville VKJ487 cream polished stainless steel traditional kettle combines classic design with high performance.
It is high wattage - 3 kilowatt (kW) - keeping the boiling time short to save you time and has a concealed element. This makes it easier to clean and more energy efficient than an immersed element, requiring a lower minimum water level in order to function safely. It has a capacity of 1.8 liters and so can accommodate about six to eight cups - ideal for families.
The VKJ487 is designed with a rear water gauge indicating water level to help you fill the kettle to the desired amount. The traditional shape gives your kettle a sophisticated style, while the switch illuminates blue on boiling adding to the smart effect.
The kettle is fitted with a non-slip, 360° rotational base for left and right-handed usage and cord storage to keep your kitchen worktop fuss-free.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Utter Rubbish I purchased this kettle at the end of May to replace an existing Breville kettle that had only lasted just over 13 months before it broke down. This one was even worse. It started regularly cutting out before boiling after less than 4 months. I have returned it for a full refund and shall never make the mistake of buying a Breville Kettle again, my previous kettles were Tefal both lasted over 8 years each. 21 September 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by stylish cream kettle 3 words stood out when I ordered this item, cream, traditional and fastboil. Well it's traditional looks win me over, it's cream because I wanted it to fit in with my country kitchen but fastboil, I've just moved from a tefal fast cup so I have to disagree but I wanted a tea pot filler, so moved on!! Yes I would and have recommended it, it's easy to fill and easy to pour. I'll live with it!!! 01 December 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great buy Great value for money kettle that looks good and is easy to keep clean. Is rather noisy and really has to be filled via the spout but the water level indicator is a bonus. It is also easy for me to lift as I have arthritis and jug kettles are out of the question. 19 October 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by dome kettle the item arrived very quickly and was exactly what i wanted. the only drawback { if you c an call it that }is if you put too much water in it { not full } it would leak a little bit.. However now that i, am used it that no longer happens. i just love it and wonder what i ever did without it. Well done Asda 10 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality kettle I had a Dualit before so was not sure on this kettle but have been very impressed. It looks great, lovely colour, and good capacity. The boiling time is not quite as quick and is slightly noisy but nothing that I find as a problem and overall I am really pleased with this kettle. Great value for the price. 17 July 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute and Classy Bought this with matching toaster and it looks really lovely in the kitchen. The round shape is a change on the many jug kettles that are on offer today and the handle is really light and accessible. The only negative thing I would say is that the sound of it is quite noisy when heating up. 09 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking I love this kettle the design & colour is really nice, the only snag is the water after being bolied has a funny taste & smell, I have checked this out on various chat forums & added the biocarb that was recommended but its still faintly there...shame but I'm sure I will get used to it. 27 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Very pleased This is a really lightweight kettle and it also has a filter inside the spout which filters out any limescale. It is actually really fast as well, I used to have a gas whistling kettle same design which took ages to boil so Im probably saving on energy with this one too! 04 July 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase This is a great kettle. Does what is says on the box, boils fast. I like the stylish retro design. Makes a mundane item look classy.Obviously it's new so I can't comment on it's ability to last but it seems solid and well made. 19 December 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would not recommend Having to return ours as the switch does not always turn on. The kettle has to be placed in a certain position for it to work. Also sometimes switch is on but kettle does not boil. 25 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Kettle When our old kettle gave up, we checked round various sites, but Asda Direct not only had exactly what we wanted, but also had it at a much lower price than any other retailer. 17 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Originally bought the red but exchanged it for the Cream as prefered this colour, extreemly happy with it, perfect colour, not a yellowy cream, a bit loud but dosnt bother me. 21 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This kettle is really fabulous - good modern shape - boils quickly and efficiently. turns on base so good for right and left handed users Very pleased with this product. 31 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money I bought this kettle and the matching breville toaster to go with the cream & duck egg colour scheme in my kitchen. It is really stylish and great value for money. 01 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good purchase Kettle looks good and is a good buy compared to other similar kettles. As others have said, it is a bit noisy but doesn't take long to boil. Would recommend. 13 June 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good purchase Bought the cream version and am very pleased. A little noisey but elegant looking kettle please with my purchase. I also bought the creams toaster as well. 18 December 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smart and stylish Kettle looks lovely in my ktichen, easy to clean and a bargain price. Wouldn't say it was 'fast boil' and it is quite noisey. But happy with my purchase. 31 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great valure for money Got this when on offer and very happy. Be sure to fully boil the kettle before you use it though as otherwise water tastes funny! Learn from experience! 31 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Noisy at 1st The kettle looks good it was really noisy at 1st but it's calmed down after a few days use n now quiet and it's quick to boil. Good purchase 21 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant kettle My 2nd Breville kettle and it's as good as my first. The look, shape and colour fits my kitchen perfectly and couldn't want for better 23 December 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Breville VKJ487 Can't complain about the service given by ASDA, however, the kettle is very noisy and could hardly be considered as 'fast boil' !! 03 February 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I was looking for The price was less than I expected to pay for such a reliable kettle. It looks good and performs well, a real fast boiler 20 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior pouring kettle A brilliant purchase which is a hit - a pleasure to have a kettle which does not dribble water everywhere when pouring. 02 December 2013
