The Breville VKJ488 stainless steel traditional kettle combines classic design with high performance. It is high wattage 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 large capacity ideal for families.
The VKJ488 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 5 out of 5 by good buy takes a bit of getting used to after using jug kettles,noisier than other kettles , i've used,no other negatives.Easy to fill and use,very happy with this kettle. 17 September 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by very pleased Lovely style and colour, quick boiling action. Bit awkard when refilling, best to wait for while till cooled down. Bit noisy, but not deafening. Very satisfied. 09 September 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red kettle It looks stylish, holds plenty of water and heats up quickly 14 September 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst ever kettle loved the colour and the shape. Boiled fresh water in kettle 3 times as per instruction manual. Boiled up a freshly drawn water and made a cup of tea. It tasted awful, chemically. Kept on boiling up fresh water with the same result. Had to give up and took kettle back to store for a refund. 03 October 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Flick problem My parents have a Breville VTT201 2 Slice Red Stainless Steel Toaster and the Breville VKJ488 1.8 Litre Fast Boil Stainless Steel Traditional Kettle, they were working brilliantly until the flick stopped staying down, and now it's a job for us to boil the kettle because it won't stay down. 09 May 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by not working I received toaster and kettle, Toaster was very suitable and is working well. KETTLE never worked so I have sent it back to Direct Asda and rather than wait for another I went to my nearest Asda store and bought the same make kettle and am very plesed with it. 07 May 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Kettle I bought this kettle to match the toaster Ii was buying. The kettle is an ideal size and allows you to boil just the amount of water you need from 1 cup upwards to 8. My only criticism is it's much noisier than my old kettle. 24 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Kettle love it Absolutely love this kettle, it's sleek and stylish and boils rapidly. It's light and easy to transport around the kitchen so handy for cooking as well as making tea and coffee. Colour is a lovely red. 18 October 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy Great looking kettle. Boils quickly, quieter than my last kettle, pours really well and a bargain in the sale. Boiled it the recommended three times before use and water tastes fine. 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish at a good price I chose this one because of it's style, colour, price and the fact that it holds slightly more than most kettles. I haven't worked out how to remove the filter yet though. 13 June 2013
