Excerpt: We were given the tefal quick cup kettle off a family member about 3 months ago, they no longer wanted the kettle as they said that it didn't heat up the water enough which meant gravy granules couldn't be dissolved. The kettle has been out for a few years now so is sold rarely as the new tefal quick cup deluxe is now available.
Fantastic idea and produces hot water in 3 seconds. Not ideal for tea but you do get used to it.

Excerpt: It was during a pilgrimage to Curry's when I first laid eyes on this odd shaped machine. Then I noticed the display box beneath it. Five words sprang out and instantly grabbed my attention. Being a serial tea drinker my eyes had to do a double take when I read "Hot Water in 3 Seconds" The picture on the box was the displayed Tefal Quick Cup with a tea mug under the nozzle and hot water being poured in. I just had to have it.
Excerpt: I live in a household full of gadgets, often ones I don't end up paying for! This one was no exception as it was given to me by a friend who didn't like the design of it once she'd got it home and because she'd already used it she didn't want to try and return it! I wasn't going to complain though and promptly set about placing this on my worktop for my morning cup of tea.
Cheap, easy, doesn't keep you hanging about. Simple.

Excerpt: I bought this for my office in July last year, and although some of the reviews of this item that you read are quite negative, I've never been happier with it. It produces hot water (not scalding and certainly not boiling) in a matter of a few seconds. It certainly doesn't splash anywhere, apart from into my cup and when the milk and sugar is added it doesn't take away that much from the temperature.
a reliable product which has no issues except that the water may not get as hot as you like it

Excerpt: I have had a tefal quickcup kettle for about 6 months now, which shows that it's not a product you would instantly replace. However, I have decided that when it is no longer completely functional I will go back to a kettle which boils. It's true that you can have a great cup of tea or coffee in about 30 seconds, however as the water never actually reaches boiling point the temperature is lower from your first sip.
Useful gadget for hot drinks, only heat as much water as you need.

Excerpt: TEFAL QUICKCUP This kettle was shown on the gadget show a few years ago. It was priced at around £60 RRP then, but I managed to get one at around £48. I think the price has remained much the same. The main body is black with a stainless steel top & the water tank is see through clear plastic. There is a red on/off button on at the top & at the bottom is a water dispenser. It holds around 3 jugs of water that's approx 1.5 litres.
Mainly a good alternative to a kettle especially if you are a cofee drinker.

Excerpt: I have mixed feelings about the Tefal quick cup. It is fantastic for when you are in a rush and have not got the time to stand and wait for a kettle to boil. Another plus point is that it save energy and also water usage. This is great for us as we are on a meter. The biggest problem for me was that the water was not at boiling point. It was hot enough for a cofee but I found for tea that it was just not good enough. I often ended up microwaving it after I had made it.
Excerpt: My partner loves gadgets and shiny things and the house is full of them. This has continued into the kitchen where the gleam can only be broken up with a carefully placed towel (He's a clean freak as well.) To add to our gleaming array we were on the lookout for a new kettle, this was to replace the chrome one we already have. Dangerous things those chrome kettles, after burning my hand on the side I wanted to find one that was cool to the touch.
Excerpt: I loved the idea of this product if only it could have lived up to expectations! I had high hopes for this product but ended up very disappointed. The idea is great but unfortunately my experience upon using the product did not live up to expectation. I bought the tefal quick cup for my Grandmother who due to dexterity problems was finding it increasingly difficult to lift the kettle, so in theory this would have been the perfect solution.
Excerpt: When the Tefal QuickCup came along, it promised to revolutionize our iconic british cuppa (or a frothy latte if that's your thing!) meaning we could have a steaming drink in just 3 seconds. And that's exactly what it did. Just shove ya mug under the spout and hit the red button, and you've got (almost) instant hot water. It may cost more than your average kettle but you really won't regret buying one.
