Our customers say

Breville VKJ142 1.5L HotCup Kettle - Gloss Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 396.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for people who cannot lift a kettle easily The Breville HotCup was cheaper here than anywhere else (almost half price) and it has changed my life! I am disabled and cannot lift an ordinary kettle, I normally have to rely on someone else to make me a hot drink. The Breville HotCup allows me to make my own hot drinks safely, and directly into a mug (which I can lift and carry by myself), and it boils just the right amount of water within a matter of seconds so there is no waiting for the whole full kettle to boil. It comes in a choice of white or black and when you press the button (which for someone with a manual dexterity impairment such as mine is an easy to manage button ) in the few seconds it takes to boil a mug full of water the chamber has a beautiful blue lit glow. I also find it easy to fill by using a small jug to top up the water chamber. What pleases me most is that anyone who walks into my kitchen immediately comments on its beauty without ever thinking this is a piece of equipment for a disabled person. The only suggestion I would make is that now that you have designed a thing of beauty which suits disabled people and older people, Breville, could you - and all other manufacturers - start including electric plugs that are easier to grip, please, so that they are easy to remove from an electrical socket for all of us? Thank you. xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xmas present Bought this as a Christmas present for the elderly in-laws so they did not have to lift a heavy kettle. They are both very pleased with it not only how it looks but it heats up very quickly and gives a good mug measure of water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Deflated This is great if your on your own and want a brew but if you have guests of more than 3 it's a waste of time it's quicker using an ordinary kettle ( so glad I kept mine) can only get 3 cups out of it and have to refill and still have to wait for it to boil between cups !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kitchen appliance I have bought in a while This hot cup kettle is great , just boiling the right amount of water you need , my son drinks a lot of tea so it's better than filling a kettle and not using all the water . My parents saw it and went and got one , plus it save energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breville one cup, It's great ,energy saving,and hands free while it does the work,for taller mugs just remove the drip tray cover !
Date published: 2016-12-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I purchased this as I have rheumatoid arthritis and have problems lifting a kettle. I purchased what I thought was the same as the one I bought last year. The first one I owned was a much better design, mainly because it was a) variable and b) had a much larger area to tip the water into as I have to use a jug. The design is not suitable for disabled users and I feel that the original design was far superior to this one.
Date published: 2016-12-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't control how much water I bought this as a one person household, you get a measured amount of water you can't vary.. Also my teapot does not sit under it without being held in place. Fine If you use mugs not good for teacups
Date published: 2016-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money This is a really good purchase and I would recommend this to others
Date published: 2016-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from one tutch morning coffee FAB quick, simple, and easy to use. Fills a normal mug with space for a little milk. Perfect for coffee as it very hot but not so hot it burns the coffee.
Date published: 2016-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good buy got this as i like to have a cup of tea or coffee when i come in from work or out shopping and the kettle all ways is two much water and take its time this is fast and just right less then a min to do a cup ande looks nice super
Date published: 2016-10-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than a kettle Our purchase of this item has amazed us. I'm disabled and have very weak muscles. I cannot lift an ordinary kettle to pour so to have this dispense a measured amount of boiling water to my mug is brilliant. So easy to full from a jug and the speed in which it boils the exact amount needed is amazing and energy efficient too. We are going to buy another for our Mother in Law.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safe kettle The kettle is safe for the family to use. Ideal when in a rush too . Only disapointment is that the light no longer works.
Date published: 2016-10-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from exactly what i wanted....PERFECT I bought this as I have bought other Breville products and been satisfied as they are easy to use. Controls and design are just what I required
Date published: 2016-09-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn't buy breville I bought the hot water dispenser and returned to store due to water leaking out of the handle at the back. Second product home and the very same thing happened. Returned and refunded and will not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kettle best one I've brought I brought this kettle after using my sisters one , it's so easy to use add water plug in , put mug on tray press button on top and water takes about 20 seconds to boil and come out. All you have to do is remember to put a cup or mug under spout on tray . Brilliant kettle looks great and works great would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Time Saver Looks Great, Amazing Price and would highly recommend for a household full of tea jennies :)
Date published: 2016-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says I originally researched this kettle for someone who has arthritis. This meant her carer could fill it with water and leave it for my relative to just place her mug under and press a button to make her own cuppa. The Kettle dispenses 250ml at each button press which is the exact amount needed before adding milk. After using it I purchased one for myself. What a bonus- I can just boil one cup in the time it takes to get a tea bag- brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Perfect one cup water dispenser. Really pleased will this item. Going back to buy one for an elderly relative who struggle lifting the old hot boiling kettle.

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.
