Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great kettle! This is great, it looks the part in my kitchen as well. Actually going to buy the toaster to match!
Date published: 2017-05-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric kettle We have had this kettle prior and has proved reliable. It is not the cheapest but comes up to scratch. We have had other electric kettles in the past but not producing one cup at a time which saves on power and stop the habitual habit of switching it on forgetting to use and wasting power
Date published: 2017-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great appliance Quick boil for always on the go and energy saving
Date published: 2017-04-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not value for money when does not last that long I have had my hot water dispenser for 14 months and now leaking would expect to last a bit longer with only myself in household. Friend also same problem but was able to take back. leaks at point of the clear plastic and the black possible design fault.
Date published: 2017-04-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful handy household happliance. As a work-from-homer myself and a family of only two hot drinks at a time, this device saves time filling and boiling a kettle. Only a cup full (standard coffee mug - not your posh fine bone china tea service type cup) is heated at a time. Time will tell if it lasts as long as a kettle, but so far it fits the bill. Bit noisy in use but i was aware of that little nuance beforehand. We do use water out of a Brita filter jug to reduce lime scale build up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy i purchased one of these before christmas and we love it. its so easy to use. one touch of a button and boiling water. this 2nd one is for my dad as his kettle stopped working.
Date published: 2017-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Love it only takes about 20 seconds to boil even after you have just filled it. Brilliant I recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little gadget I love my new gadget. Makes a cuppa in seconds. Go ladies and try one out!!!
Date published: 2017-03-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it We all love this, its 1 minute and 25 seconds quicker to make 5 cups of drink with the hot cup dispenser than a kettle.
Date published: 2017-02-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good buy great for a quick cuppa - a bit heavy for arthritic hands but i fill from a jug and no problem - can fill a cup a few times if more needed for cooking veg or use part of a cup if less required
Date published: 2017-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from One cup kettle This kettle boils one cup at a time. Boils fast but I do find it a bit noisy. If ur are a single person it means ur not boiling more than you want. Only drawback is can be a pain if ur want a large amount of hot water i.e. for your potatoes.
Date published: 2017-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from top notch We all get up at different times we just pop a tea bag in the cup push the switch and jobs a good one
Date published: 2017-01-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sent back as leaking Even though had to send back because of leaking,I would recommend this product as a friend of mine has one,I would of had a replacement but there was none in stock,it dispenses water in no time and water is always hot enough,it came a little noisy when dispensing water but it does state that on leaflet included .
Date published: 2017-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was the best purchase I bought this product as my old kettle broke I searched around on the internet and you were the cheapest by far my daughter loved it and tried to get one but to no avail I would recommend it . I love the colour of it and the size. It doesn't take long for the water to heat up
Date published: 2017-01-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this as a gift but have had one myself for about three years. Making a cup of tea is so easy and good for the environment.
Date published: 2017-01-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it! Love making tea with this its easy to use especially if you have trouble lifting heavy kettles which I did. Especially ideal for one or two people as it holds a small amount of water ,but easy to fill again using a jug. Very smart and compact. great present for nan too
Date published: 2017-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with choice Wish I'd had one of these years ago! Not only does it look good but is ideal for me as partially sighted with arthritis. Just fill reservoir once a day and it boils so quickly - brilliant purchase.
Date published: 2017-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ok buy It looks nice but only problem bit to loud for me Other than that good purches
Date published: 2017-01-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargin Price Been looking at purchasing one of these for a while and at such a good price could not, perfect and really easy to use
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not one of my best buys ! it looks sleek, but the hole for filling with water rather small and awkward, set it to boil, Oh boy is it noisy ! and it only gives out a small shot of hot water, ok if you use a teacup !
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase This is a good product if you are only making one cup which I normally do,unless the family arrive then the kettle is back in use. Water is hot and it is so convenient. Would have given five stars if the amount of water dispensed was variable. But for the price can't fault.
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy ever I would Recommend this I need a kettle in my quilting studio a normal kettle takes to long to boil I would forget to make a drink so bought this it's Brilliant boils one cup in a few seconds hot coffee or tea not forgotten
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this kettle Purchased as replacement as my original one (6years+)and took opportunity to buy it in sale.Ideal for those who have problems pouring from other types of kettles.
Date published: 2017-01-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from One Cup I was a bit disappointed in this product. It only fills three cups/mugs and I seem to be constantly filling it up. My usual mug is too small and the water overflows and so I have had to improvise with a jug and then tip the jug into my mug/cup. It is a bit of a "faff" and I may go back to my kettle!
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier to use than any kettle This water dispenser is so much safer and easier to use than any kettle. It dispenses one cup of boiling water to make a drink in seconds. No more lifting boiling water in a kettle which is a problem if you have a disability.
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase We were recommended this by a family member so we bought one and can not believe how good this item is its bril. Would recommend to all
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quick and easy to use Very impressed it boils the water unbelievably quick, doesn't waste water and looks good on the kitchen side.
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe at last! I am so pleased I bought this one cup, I have arthritis in my fingers now my new one cup has made it safer for me to use than a kettle, I would recommend this product in style, ease of use, and for me safety
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Kettle Very good design, ideal for those that are unsteady lifting a kettle with boiling water. Boils quickly to dispense just a mug full of boiling water each time.
Date published: 2017-01-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy!! I bought this as a replacement for another brand with which I was pleased but broke down after just 8 months.. I was disappointed as it is soooo noisy!

The Breville Hot Cup - for a quicker cuppa

  • The Breville Hot Cup is designed to boil a cup of water in a matter of seconds, meaning great hot drinks at the touch of a button. It dispenses a 250 millilitre (ml) cup of boiling water--the equivalent of a standard drinking mug--and will dispense up to five cups without refilling--perfect for families or small offices.

    The innovative patented technology ensures that water is only dispensed once it has reached boiling point, not simply very warm, but 100 degrees Celsius, making perfect hot drinks every time. In addition, the smooth and continuous flow of water keeps any splashing to a minimum.

    By only boiling enough water for the number of cups you need, the Hot Cup is economical and energy efficient. There's no boiled water going to waste and it helps you save pennies on electricity bills.

    The VKJ142 can dispense up to 5 250ml sized cups of boiling water without needing a refil.
  • One cup of boiling water in less than 1 minute

  • Removable drip tray

    A removable drip tray makes cleaning your Hot Cup quick and easy.
  • Boiled water at the touch of a button
  • 1.5 litre illuminating water tank
