LOVE THIS KETTLE!

B. T. K. "Barbara Tschirgi Kalivas", Amazon
9 March 2015
  • Summary: Breville is the brand I have chosen for my small applicances for many years. I decided to try the CRYSTAL CLEAR KETTLE when I needed to replace my old one. I based my decision on several factors: 1.) far less plastic inside the kettle 2.) easier to clean the kettle as there is more hand room to do so 3.) only one glance needed to see if water needed to be replenished. All of this has proven to be true including one neat factor.

It's a must!!!!

Dina P, Amazon

  • Summary: This kettle amazes me! I am huge Breville fan to begin with, so I'm not surprised by the high quality. But this thing is so fast you won't believe your eyes! I even timed it because I was in such shock! Just under 1 minute 30 seconds for 2 cups of water, and about 3 minutes 20 seconds for 5 cups. It's crazy! I love love love this!

Broken and Hard to Return

TMF, Amazon
18 February 2015
  • Summary: I did plenty of research and bought this for my sister as a holiday present. She used it for 2 weeks before it broke. Breville will not allow you to return a product without an authorization code that you need to get by waiting on the telephone for hours, which busy people do not have time to do. Maybe this was just bad luck that it broke, but it shouldn't be so difficult to return, not for the price I paid for it. Seriously disappointed.

Excellent Kettle

R S Collins, Amazon
16 February 2015
  • Summary: My older kettle was a similar type, but all stainless steel, with a small level-indicating sightglass under the handle, making it difficult to see. The glass pitcher on the Breville is much more functional; it boils a full pitcher in minutes, is convenient to fill, and will be much easier to clean when needed

Another bad quality kettle

amb, Amazon
7 February 2015
  • Summary: I had this kettle for over a year now and I'm disappointed. My issues with it: 1) there was a very bad toxic smell for months. I used the kettle multiple times a day -- the smell was very strong and the water tasted terrible. I had contacted the company of why this might be but of course did not get an explanation but just some advice of how to clean the kettle.

I absolutely love this kettle

Phil McCaffrey, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: I absolutely love this kettle. The clean design makes it a delight to have on the counter. I make both Chemex and French Press coffee. This Breville Clear Kettle makes it fun to watch the water boil. It is also great for a quick cup of tea. I will be ordering one for my office.

Very nice; but then, it is a Breville

H. Edwin Detlie "Ed Detlie", Amazon

  • Summary: I am a Breville fan, and this looked like a great replacement for the teakettle we had. It works nicely, heats quickly, you can see it boiling, it shuts off when it boils, and the lid comes up slowly when opened by a button on the handle, minimizing the risk of scalding steam. It is well designed, attractive and nicely built. This is what I was hoping it would be!

Excellent!

Kathleen M. Valentine, Amazon
13 January 2015
  • Summary: Love this Electric Kettle! The fact that the button to turn it on is located at the base is an enormous plus! The last "Brand name" electric Kettle I purchased had the on/off button on the handle. Every time the water boiled, the steam would penetrate the handle & the on/off button. After a while the kettle on/off button would no longer work. It gets really tiresome holding a button in the on position waiting for the kettle to boil.

Nice design but technically really not better than the (cheaper) all stainless version

Terri M, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this to replace a 3 yr old Breville SK500XL Stainless-Steel Electric Kettle that was getting tired. Design is nice, longer electric cord is also handy. Not impressed with lid..when lid button is pressed to open it takes forever for it to open....its suppose to be "slow" but it's really really slow! And the opening is smaller so when it does need to be cleaned it will most likely be more difficult. Twice I have found it boiling with the lid open..

Looks great. Bigger than necessary

erik dokken, Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: Looks great. Bigger than necessary, in my humble opinion. Doesn't shut off by itself once waters boils as quickly as it should. And i don't like that the ON button stays engaged once the pot is lifted from the base. I think there are better values out there.
