Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item had one before but they don't last long Bought this and had to take back as it was leaking on first use. Got another and today this one has started leaking. I've had one before and it just stopped working, it was less than a year old but I could'nt find the receipt to take it back. The item when not faulty is just great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one cuppa at a time Excellent For making one cuppa at a time no more heavy kettles to pick up just fill and go Ideal for people who have some wrong and can't lift items

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent gadget This is one gadget that wont be put to the back of the cupboard and not used again. How ever, filling with water can be a little tricky.
Date published: 2016-01-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vary happy This is a great price from Asia and how quick this boils must be saving money on the electric. Only down side is that you can not variate the amount of water it diliveres so we have to distribute the water into a jug first then pour it into the cups or mugs because our mugs are just not big enough for the amount of water it delivers and would therefore overflow. Never the less we have the knack of doing it now therefore very pleased with the unit. Just one more point though is the cord is very short and you would need to put I very close to a plug socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for those with limited hand mobility Bought one of these for my elderly mother who has difficulty managing a kettle after breaking her arm. Brilliant, does just as it says. She fills it with a plastic 750ml bottle to save lifting. I found it so handy we bought one for my wifes mother (90) and another for ourselves (we have no issues). Much safer than lugging the kettle of boiling water about. You do have to use a mug big enough to take the 250ml of hot water dispensed though.
Date published: 2016-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. My mum has bad arthritis and this product means she has some independence back because she can use a hug to fill it and doesn't need to lift a heavy kettle. Great from a safety point of view and puts my mind at ease.
Date published: 2016-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I love this new buy and massive bargain works really well especially if you only have to make hot drink for 1 or 2 people. Takes a couple of second to boil would definitely recommend xx
Date published: 2016-01-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves time and money Ideal for the one cup option. Not the biggest cup though.Heats the water enough for a good tea bag brew. Great if you just need a small amount of hot water while cooking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant purchase This kettle saves water, electricity and time. It is an asset in my kitchen and I am buying more as gifts for my family.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good product that does what it says it does Was hesitant to order having seen some reviews but it seemed to be what i was after. Yes, it is a bit noisy but only briefly - after all, it is boiling water. It delivers a mug full of hot water and although a bigger reservoir might help, that is just laziness on my part. Easy to refil. I am really pleased i ignored bad reviews and bought it.
Date published: 2016-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for money So pleased with this. Couldnt believe the quality of it for the price when it arrived. Only small thing I would alter if I could is that it is a bit noisy when actually dispersing the water but this is only for a few seconds so can easily live with that. Would definitely recommend.

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.
Date published: 2016-01-08
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.
Date published: 2016-01-06
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 4 out of 5 by from clever & well designed Does exactly what its supposed to do. Its fast. Dispenses boiling water and is easy to use. Looks good too.
Date published: 2016-01-06
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 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic. Brilliant for teaching our young man with special needs to be independant safely, well done Breville. Also great for ourselves too. Thank you.

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.
Date published: 2016-01-05
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
