Elegant and works very well

Libsy, Amazon
1 July 2014
  • Summary: I love this kettle. I even got one for my son. It makes boiled water in moments and is sleek looking on the counter. I am a tea drinker so it is great for me. I use a Keurig for coffee and a French Press, but for tea this is perfect.

Auto shut-off not sensitive enough

  • Summary: I love this electric kettle, but the auto shut off doesn't seem very sensitive. It boils vigorously for several minutes before it shuts off on its own.

Nothing but trouble

Palmer, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: This has got to be the worst excuse for a kettle I have ever encountered, Breville should be ashamed to put their name to it. The specifications indicated the on offv swith should light. When it did not I returned it as I felt water and a possible electrical fault were not a good combination.

OK

Lunatta, Amazon

Great Kettle!

A.C., Amazon
22 April 2013
  • Summary: Ok I recieved this one from Amazon as a used-very good condition, as per Amazon this is exactly the same as open box, something someone opened, used maybe 1-2 times and did not like it. It was $31.50 with 5 day shipping included. Mine is new, no marks, scratches, etc...

Defective Kettles

Ileana A Idrobo, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: It is a nice looking kettle, but the illuminated on/off switch didn't work so I sent it back and exchanged it for a new one. The light on the on/off switch still did not work, I think this is an important feature to have, so I returned it and got a refund. I will not be trying a 3rd kettle.
