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 Great kettle Looks good, does the job very well, the fast boil is a great feature and very useful. Also noticed in the instructions that, if you've left the kettle for up to five minutes after boiling, there's no need to re-boil because the temperature is maintained at 90 degrees which is perfect for a cup of coffee. The filter (for limescale) is metal and fitted inside the kettle and can be removed for easy cleaning (once it's cold obviously) which is more long lasting than the usual plastic clip-in bits on the spout. A great kettle, all round; I'm really happy with it. 16 April 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely, functional kettle We had a look at quite a few red kettles and eventually settled on this. The lids is one that simply pulls off, which is what we were after - the old kettle had a lid that tilted open when you pushed a button, but eventually both the struts that held the lid onto the kettle snapped. With this kettle that simply isn't going to be an issue. The colour is a lovely deep red colour (deeper than the red shown on my monitor at least) which suits our kitchen perfectly. It's quick and much quieter than our old kettle. A good buy! 22 December 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by love love love....... After looking at many many red kettles I chose this one for it's looks mainly.I like the neat design and sturdy, classic shape.The deep red colour is beautiful and doesn't leave hard to remove finger prints on the surface like some metalic effect ones.The water boils very quickly,the handle is comfortable and feels safe when the kettle is full.The spout pours directly and with no spills....over all an excellent product which I am very pleased with.Am so glad I shopped around as the price of this one was fabulous!!! 04 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant buy... Perfect! I had previously had replaceable brita filter kettles, but to be honest I never found them to be any better than a normal kettle. I saw this one at such a low price and as I was in need of a new one I plumped for it for its colour, size and price. I have to say its not quite the red i was expecting, it's not as dark, but it is a lovely shade of red none the less. Best of all, it doesn't suffer with the age old problem of finger prints and water marks. It's easy to fill and the none drip spout works a dream. The filter can be removed to clean when required. No more costly filters! The only down side is its a little noisier than some other kettles but the design of the ergonomic handle and the colour overrules that. I am more than satisfied with this purchase and recommend it to anyone. 13 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent kettle! I wanted red to match oher appliances and it did not disappoint, lovely colour. It is rather loud when in use but the ergonomic handle compensates. I have osteo-arthritis in my hands and it very safe for me to use, where-as other kettles I find slip in my hands because I no longer have a strong grip. Delighted with it. 15 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Nice design and feels sturdy and solid to use. Boils quickly and good spout for pouring. Overall a great purchase 09 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by red hot pretty kettle looks great in my newly decorated kitchen. It is a little noisier than my previous plastic jug kettle - but it looks and feels so nice to use. Great delivery service from Asda too 24 December 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy with Although it is a lovely looking kettle and works great, it has a vile taste that won't go no matter how many times I boil the water and throw it away. I've had same problem before with other makes of kettle usually the more expensive ones. Am I unlucky or is there something I should be doing to get rid of the nasty taste? If no better by Wednesday morning when I go to town I will be returning it ,sadly cause it looks great in my kitchen. 11 November 2013
