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 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 instant hot water the only drawback with the kettle is that you cannot adjust the amount of water dispensed other than that it is very quick at disensing the hot water have now bought 3 one each for the kids and 1 for us

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bought for my mum as replacement for exactly the same kettle. She has had the first one for many years and although it still works was not looking its best (due to lots of use ) and the water wasn't quite filling the mug. Paid a lot less for this product from George than paid for the original. Mum very happy :-D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Delivers just the amount of water required for your tea making requirements. Clever piece of kit.
Date published: 2016-02-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product It's a lovey kettle but it's more suited to someone on their own or someone who don't make loads of cups of tea/coffee at once
Date published: 2016-02-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and straightforward Does exactly what it says on the tin! It has a simple, straightforward operation providing a generous quantity of virtually boiling water, quite hot enough for tea or coffee. Because there is no selection for the amount of water dispenced,(approx. 300ml) you might need to experiment with various mug sizes and discard those not large enough or at least consign them to the back of the cupboard. We overcome this by having a small plastic 500ml jug handy and if you are not sure how much water the mug will hold, or you only need a small amount for a cup etc., then dispense into the jug first then transfer to the cup. If you do it without delay, the drop in temperature will be negligible. I should add that i got my machine while on a special offer on-line so I consider it a real bargain. My wife was sceptical at first having been used to boiling a kettle three quarter full then using just a mug full! She is, however, coming round to my way of thinking to avoid wasting electricity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect purchase Easy to use, and saves lifting kettle
Date published: 2016-01-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little gadget It's save you money not having to keep boiling the same water over and over again.
Date published: 2016-01-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than a kettle Measured cup is too small if you take your drink black or have large cups. This means pouring a second and discarding some so not as energy efficient as I'd like. The more expensive model has variable cup sizes but costs more than double. I fill with a plastic jug so I don't have to lift it to the tap. On the whole I am very happy with it.
Date published: 2016-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kettle I'm so pleased with this purchase. Looks good in style and very easy to use. I love the way it boils each cup as it needed without having to lift the jug, so convenient. The price is a very good for what it is. I recommend it to anyone.
Date published: 2016-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very quick cuppa! Works so well for my Mother in Law. No more struggling with heavy kettles. An almost instant cuppa too! Would recommend to all.

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.
