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.

defective lid (twice)

ktess, Amazon
13 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this kettle about 14 months ago. During the first 30 days, the button that opens the lid jammed and the lid could not be closed. I returned it and Amazon sent me a new one. The same things happened a few months later, too late to return it, and I learned that if I struck the button just right with the handle of something else I could get it to pop open. Inelegant, but it worked.

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. Amazon promptly sent me another but the light didn't switch on that one either. Contacted Breville and was told it was a mistake in the brochure.

Angela, Amazon
12 April 2013
  • Summary: UHG why make a stainless kettle and fill it with plastic??? AND there's no mention of BPA free anywhere... I'm sure it has BPA in it... very disappointed, especially not that it's here and it is very pretty but I will return it for sure!

Great Kettle!

A.C., Amazon
9 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... I cleaned it well and it works perfectly, now the people that returned it due to it not lighting up or a red light not going on when its on simply were not reading reviews.
