Good

Energy efficent.

Water output not adjustable.

Introduction:- Upon deciding that our old kettle that was well past its best needed replacing, I already had a fairly good idea of what I wanted to replace it with. I had previously seen the Breville Hot Cup range of kettles on sale but they had always cost just that bit more than I was willing...

Remember to use a mug and not a cup!

Breville hot cup! I first saw these kettles a couple of years ago and wanted one but at the time I couldn’t justify paying nearly 70 quid for what essentially I thought of as a gadget. However I saw that it was on offer on Amazon for £30 quid which was much more reasonable and thought I would...

Why the Hot Cup My boyfriend is a massive tea fan so for his birthday recently, I bought him a Breville Hot Cup. I didn’t even know these existed until I was randomly looking at tea related products on Amazon. I was actually looking for one of those coffee making machines where you put in the...

“A Hot Cup from Breville”

published 28/04/2011

No wasted energy or water

Getting the cup-size right

The Breville Hot Cup was received as a Christmas present last year and I can honestly say that it has been used every day since. It can really only be described as a kettle – but with a patented design which means that only one cup is boiled at a time which, of course, saves time, energy and...

Can't change the amount dispensed

This review is for the Breville VKJ142 Hot Cup, which is a kettle designed to just heat the amount of water that you need. The aim of this kettle is to boil and dispense only one cup at a time, which has the advantage of being much quicker, and saves energy and time in not boiling water that...

Having recently installed a new kitchen, we were keen to find new appliances that looked good in our ultra modern kitchen and also had a more eco friendly use of energy. My other half was keen to purchase the Breville Hotcup, (shown above). The reasoning behind this was, to save electricity and...

Sleek design, one cup dispensing, economical

Noise

After my old kettle was looking a little bit tired I decided to upgrade and treat myself to this funky looking kettle. While my house isn't crammed full of gadgets, I do always try to buy something a little different to the 'norm' and so this kettle certainly fit the bill with it's one cup...

I actually hated this at first because I had no idea how to use it, and the fact my cup would always over flow would really get on my boobs, but then I learnt to love this kettle and I don't want it to ever go away, its a good kettle! ------------- THE PRICE ------------- The kettle can usually...

INTRODUCTION My dad chose and bought it to replace another Breville kettle. The previous one worked fine but hot water seemed to drip down the front when pouring, which isn't very good. This 'Hot Cup' kettle is very different though and looks not too dissimilar to a coffee machine and it pours...

250ml cups

I work running all of the facilities in my workplace and with a large number of employees I always seem to be purchasing new kettles as they are used regularly. As they are used regularly they are boiled a lot more than an average kettle, so I try and purchase kettles in the middle price bracket...

Super speedy boiling

Broken after one year

It was a gadget that we put on our wedding list and our fabulous friends bought it for us. I drink about 10 cups of tea a day and am infamous for hating to make tea for people. This machine is fab! It literally boils the water in about 20 seconds. You fill the base unit up as you would a normal...

Very quick to boil

Very noisy

I got my mum this kettle for christmas just gone, it was the exact one that she wanted, I wasnt too sure on it as you don't have the option of filling your cup to the exact amount that you would like. This can sometimes cause a problem if you don't have a massive cup! Obviously not every cup or...

Being a bit of an eco warrior and also having 2 young children, I really loved the idea of this Hot Cup kettle, heating up just the right amount of water very quickly using far less electric than a standard kettle and never reboiling water, sounded perfect! I thought I'd finally be able to fit...
