Rated 5 out of 5 by RickyD A great, useful machine
This is great, all you need to do is place your cup of coffee or tea on the stand, and it boils and dispenses one cup of steaming hot water in seconds. If you keep it topped up with water, it saves the weight of lifting the kettle every time you want a drink. Yes, its noisy when boiling, but its worth it. Bought it for my mom to use, but now I want one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fred69 Very useful but
Just the job for the elderly couple I bought it for as don't hav to keep lifting the kettle and only boils what you need
The only minus is that it should be called the Hot Mug Kettle as that is the amount of water it boils & dispenses which is too much when you usually only have a CUP of tea or coffee

Decided to treat myself to the Breville hot cup kettle, as I know a few people who have one. Now that i have my own I look forward to my boiling hot cup of tea every morning without having 2 wait very long for the water to boil

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dottydoodle1 So glad I bought it
Couldn't decide if I really needed one of these but saw it at the reduced price so thought I'd give it a go. So glad I bought it. Excellent product and such good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaztoby2 Great looking kettle
This kettle looks good but be prepared to make one hot drink at a time in large mugs. Drinks are so far always hot.

Handing for the elderly and those with poor hand mobility. Help to stay independent and make your own drinks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bentonville49 It's noisy,but I love it
Didn't know this little gadget existed until a friend had one as a wedding gift.Ordered online as Asda was the best price and it was delivered to my local store within 2 days.Very easy to use,fill the water tank,put a mug which holds 250ml underneath and wait for approx 30 seconds for hot water to appear and drink to be made.I must admit it's a bit noisy when dispensing,but it's all over so quickly you don't notice it after a couple of goes.This model only issues a standard 250ml of liquid EVERY time,if you want to use different sizes of cup or mug,then the next model up the VKJ 138 is the one for you.All in all very happy with my purchase and It's great for gravy granules too!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sallys888 Good product for ease of use and a great cuppa!
I like this because freshly boiled water makes a better cup of tea and each cup is freshly brewed with this kettle. It also saves on electricity because you only boil what you need.
It is an improvement on the old model because it is lighter and less complex.
My only quibble is that it's slightly smaller than the old model and needs re-filling more often

Great ASDA price second 'one cup' as last one started to malfunction after 3 years (didn't switch off after dispensing a cup of hot water) spoke to Breville and nearly didn't get another as their response was poor however love the convenience of this machine and I suppose 3 years of constant use isn't bad!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paulxh Energy saving, good ASDA value
At the time of purchase ASDA were offering this model (Product Code: VKJ142-01) at a very competitive price.
It appealed to me in that it will just heat one mug of water in quick time.
You absolutely need to be sure that the mug you use will take the fixed amount of water (250ml) dispensed with room to spare.
I found it fine to put coffee or tea bag in first but it is not advisable to put chocolate powder in dry as it will not mix. Suggest chocolate powder is mixed with a little water first in a mug first.
The unit can be orientated left or right making it suitable for left or right handed operation.
Breville do a larger unit unit Product Code: VKJ318-01 (2litre capacity) with adjustable quantity off water dispensed but quite a bit more money.
and the blue illumination upon boil is cool

This looks good in the kitchen, the only downside is it doesn't fit well under the tap so needs filling with a jug.

Bought this last week and I am very happy with it as I have had bad luck with kettles that keep breaking down, it boils very fast and as you only boil 1 mug of water at a time it must be saving electricity

Rated 3 out of 5 by jodie75748586 ideal for mug users
This is ideal for people who use mugs and perhaps only ever make 2 brew at a time, it's a shame you can't choose how much water you want to use as it's never the correct amount for my cups

Rated 2 out of 5 by anutkaw Returned
I have bought HotCup Kettle couple weeks ago, and took it back few days later. I found it a bit tricky, as the amount of the water being dispenced couldn't be adjusted, therefore only certain cups could be used only and very inconvinient if needed a bit more or less water then dispensed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mianna38 Great buy
Bought this has my hands are very weak, and it's one of my best buys ever. Great for people that have problem with their hands,It is very quick at getting the water boiled. And looks very stylish, and even more stylish when the blue light is on. Very easy to use and fill. Great buy, would recommend this product to anyone. We went ahead and bought a second one just two days after we got our first one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pipsdorset Excellent for the price
This was for someone who has sight problems and pouring boiling water was a risk, this is excellent as it has a sensor to stop the water when the cup is full.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackie851 A few buts - but still pleasantly surprised
Great appliance when you drink tea like I do. Although first few boils after following preparation instructions did leave my tea tasting metally and horrible so I'd definitely recommend giving it a good few extra boils before using. Also a little noisy - my daughter describes it as comparable to a plane coming in to land. Still I'm glad I bought it and it suits me fine. Good quality and value for money too when you compare to what other retailers are selling it for!

This is the second one we have purchased it is brill for instant hot drinks.
The first one kept tripping out after a year of use, and pushing the minute trip
button back in became a chore.
