Breville VKJ142 1.5L HotCup Kettle - Gloss Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 386.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted a new kettle so... ..I looked quite hard for a replacement to my old kettle which still works but was looking a little tired and shabby next to my new toaster! Didn't consider a one cup version at all, at first, but decided to give it a go. I don't have any regrets, it provides enough water for my medium size cups of tea and coffee. I'm impressed that it does only boil enough water for one cup at a time as I mostly only make one cup at a time. It is a shame that the quantity of water poured into the cup is not adjustable to suit all users. The water boils very quickly and quietly but the pouring of water sound takes a little getting used to (sounds a bit like someone having a good cough!) And it looks great next to my shiny new toaster by the way. Hope this helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only recommend for standard size hot drinks Great if you only make a single normal size hot drinks. Thought I would be able to pour the quantity of hot water I required but will only give you 300 mils measure at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Bought it for mum mother in law, loved it so bought myself one..... Now thinking of buying one for my mum....
Date published: 2016-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick & economical for single cuppa - Econominal and quick way for making one cup. Note - not full larger mugs and won't fully replace kettle when need more hot water (another item for overloaded worktop) Read on-line problems leaking and emptying hot water itself but no problems so far. Will wait see descaling problems as can't use powder have. May opt lemon juice or approved citrus based descaler. Nice blue light colour, approx 45 sec max for hot water and will need to get used to water sitting there in reservoir rather than emptying and re-filling each time. Not noticed tinny taste some people said. Post xmas price Asda half almost than other retailers so good deal if still on offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Gadget Bought as I am mainly on my own - love that it just gives enough boiling water for one cup and is very quick at heating up and also, even if you fill the kettle to the top, it only boils one cup, love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good profuct Very useful when only making just a single hot drink.
Date published: 2016-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for single cup of tea This smart kettle dispenses one cup of hot water at a time, so saves boiling a kettle full for a single cup. Lights up blue when boiling water. Just put the cup under the spout and hey presto a single measure is dispensed straight into the cup. It can be a bit noisy when boiling and gurgles as it moves water into position for next boiling operation. States holds 5 cups but seems to reach minimum mark after just 3 cups. I may need to go back to the instructions to try to sort this out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kettle for Beverages This is a well designed, good looking kettle for anyone looking for a quick hot drink. If you have not experienced such a kettle before. it will boil a set amount of water for one cup at a time. I would highly recommend this kettle for singles, couples or small families wanting to just create hot beverages quickly. I wouldn't recommend it if you also use the kettle for large amounts of people or for cooking purposes. How to use The kettle comes in 2 pieces, the base and the kettle boiler. The boiler sits on top of the base and detaches/ fills up with water like an ordinary wireless kettle. There is only one button to use - an On/Off Switch. Place mug under the value, switch on, wait 15 seconds and you have a cup of boiling hot water. Pros - Good aesthetic design - Boils very quickly. Boils a cup of hot water in about 15 seconds - Very simple to use Cons - No settings to alter the amount of water boiled. Pre-set amount of water may not be enough for a large mug. - As only one cup of water is boiled at a time, practically, it would be very annoying to use this machine to pre-boil large amounts of water for cooking (say for pasta) or for making drinks for lots of people (6+) at once
Date published: 2016-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breville HotCup Quick and easy to use. Why didn't someone think of this before? It is the way a kettle should be. I keep a jug under the spout and dispense boiling water from that then there's no problem with large or small cups or mugs. Making tea and coffee is a breeze either in a mug, cup or teapot. So is instant gravy and hot diluting juice. I love my new kettle., can you tell?
Date published: 2016-01-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glorified Kettle Liked the concept of the product, would be great for a single person living on their own or a student. Only downside is that you still have to wait for the kettle to boil if full instead of just the one cup. Would not be worth the full price only value for money if in a sale Great otherwise

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it As I live on my own this is great for boiling enough for one cup. Even fills mug for me with the right amount of water

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hit Brought this for my mom has she lives on her own and she loves it. It's made life easier for her recommended for anyone who doesn't use a kettle much.
Date published: 2016-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Price Purchased this Kettle at sale price. Read reviews before buying. Easy to set up and use. Kettle lights up blue when boiling. Takes under a minute to heat. Disappointed that it's very loud, and fills too much in a cup so you end up having to tip some away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I bought my elderly mum this for Christmas because she was finding it difficult to lift a kettle, now I don't have to worry about her and scolding water she loves it . I was that impressed I bought myself one and my children love it they even offer to brew up - now that's a bonus.
Date published: 2016-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful product for the elderly Bought this for elderly relative. Excellent product but given only 4stars as it it a bit tricky to fill up with water.
Date published: 2016-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have mine next to where I sit, being disabled means no danger of falling or scolding carrying drink from the kitchen I have a clip lock lid jug of water to refill....instant cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate or a cuppa soup would even be good in a bedroom for a morning cup of tea or for someone bed ridden. ..just make sure your using a standard size mug :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safer hot water I bought this item for my 81 year old mum for Christmas as she was making tea using her whistling kettle on the gas hob and it was becoming too heavy for her to lift safely from the hob to the tea pot. She is delighted with this item as it makes preparing hot drinks so much easier for her and I am happier knowing she will not scold herself if she were to drop her old kettle. Whilst this water heater dispenses a fixed amount of hot water (250ml) the dispense can be halted simply by turing off the dispense button, so a smaller quantity of hot water can be dispensed if needed. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Christmas Present ever 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
Date published: 2015-12-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.
Date published: 2015-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful product Handing for the elderly and those with poor hand mobility. Help to stay independent and make your own drinks.
