The Breville VKJ142 fast water boiler is reduced to £29 and they're offering an additional 10% off using the code 10KETTLE - making this £26.10. Four times faster than a conventional kettle, and pretty smart looking. Just ordered one for my new house in January. Available for store collection.

I like the look of these, very smart, but they really don't boil the water very well ( my aunt has one )
#2

Laksys - £48
Co-op - £59
Amazon - £29

Remember - quidco if you buy from Comet!

hot for price yes,but believe me-you can get hotter water out of the tap tbh-if you like your coffee lukewarm this is the gadget for you.

My tefal quick cup lasted a couple of weeks before giving up the ghost. Not saying the breville will be the same, but its a 'me too' product to compete with Tefal who seemed to have released it before they had it perfected.

In all fairness it wasn't brilliant and I wouldn't buy another just yet. My advice would be get a decent quiet boil kettle.

Good price but have not voted either way due to my personal experience

:lol: I have to agree :thumbsup:

I have had one of these for around a year now, this kettle is great the water is BOILING HOT not unlike the tefal hot cup, We drink both tea and coffeee and never had a problem with the temperature of the water. this kettle is the safest around for young children to use as well.

Great price nearly £60 every where else.

Not true !

The tefal version gives out cooler than boiling water but the Breville gives out great boiling water that is perfect for tea - I had the tefal and now have this :thumbsup:

Very hot deal - and very hot water :-D

I have had the white version (Argos exclusive I believe) for about 6 months. It works by heating a mug sized portion of water in the bottom of the unit which must reach boiling point to create pressure in order to expel out of the nozzle. Having said that, on route to the mug, the water does cool down a little but is still plenty hot enough to brew the tea. In the case of instant coffee I have heard that the water shouldn't be boiling for best results, if that is true then that is an advantage the water is bit cooler. In either case, it certainly reaches a temperature that is too hot to drink straight away.

It will always be more economical because it only every delivers the required amount.

The only other real advantage is that, in a household with only one or two people, you do not have to keep filling it up as much you would a kettle ie to save electric and two people, with a kettle each time you would have to fill with two measured cups of water. Where as with the Breville you can make 5-6 cups between fills (can't remember exactly without testing it)! If you have a large household, a kettle will be quicker at making 3 or more cups so you may as well stick with that unless family members regularly make their own drinks.

I have been very pleased with mine even after paying the full price for it.

IIRC this gives a set amount of water which is too much for cups and smaller mugs. The tefal unit can be set for the amount of water it gives out

I'm glad you pointed what they said out, some people have NO common sense what so ever. I really don't know how they live their lives.

Do I need to call Social Services?
#12
so do I buy or not??

Same price at amazon at the minute http://www.amazon.co.uk/Breville-Hot-Cup-Boiling-Button/dp/B001L5SSGQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1259870035&sr=8-1-fkmr0

I was tempted until I read the reviews and a couple of things have put me off
#14
I bought one of these. The way the water is heated up is forcing water through hot pipes inside the kettle then out into the cup. Ive timed how long it takes and it takes 35secs for one VERY HOT CUP of water. problem is the water smells of plastic and taste of it too, something i just cant get used to the taste of. I have tried to wash it out and use it a few times but the taste of hot plastic just doesnt cut it... :x

Nope - there's an extra 10% off at Comet, read the OP.

Good point ... slightly under half a pint if peeps want to measure their cups/mugs
#19
Just ordered one ......had a look through some of the Amazon comments on it.......this guy must have a bit of the ol sadist in him ..........he bought it for his customers when they were perusing around his shop.........:)

"The only thing you need to watch out for is people using cups that hold less than 250ml, the look of surprise on their faces when they realise that they cannot stop the kettle delivering it's preset amount can be amusing. Good solid innovative product".
#20
good deal ........best price seen to date and you can collect them from store :thumbsup:
#21
I have been looking at these for a while great price. However even if I buy one the normal kettle will have to stay as its often used when cooking. Dont think this is a ketle KILLER just an additional gadget. Not enough room in my kitchen. Best bet is to only boil the water you need in a normal kettle and not a drop more
#22
Nice price - heat added
#23
great product
#24
I'm so tempted to get this for my Nans bday - but its not till Aug. She has athritus (sp) and I think this would be ideal for her. Its a great price, especially now amazon have increased the price on there site by £19!!
#25
Great gadget for hubby at Christmas :-D
#26
i have this kettle, fantastic kettle,however some downfalls (not that bad tbh im just giving my opinion):
1; the cup size thing - damn! the ammount of times i have had to move the cup and catch it in another cup due to the crappy sized cups i own! - resolved it by buying a new set of bigger cups - perfection now !!
2; i must say the first cup in a morning is not hot enough (might be because my kitchen is -10 in a morning even in the summer!) but the second cup third fourth etc is always hot enough for me! (i like my coffee piping hot!, if it go's cool - tip it away!)
3; noisey when it comes out - but doesnt really bother me but i thought ide add that
4; pours around 5 cups each fill - not too bad really - wish it was linked up to the water line though! the ammount of coffee i have in a day is ridiculous! must cut down!

my view of the product - a must have. completely replaced my ordinary kettle. when making supoer noodles- put the pan under! 1 fill is enough! as for pot noodles (regular) has to be removed at the last section as to avoid too much water!! (yes i eat alot of junk crap :D)

ide recommend it to anyone at this price - think it was £55 when i purchsed! might buy another for the parents!
#27
The answer to a question no one has needed to ask!

Hot but very cold!
#28
Great deal, i have been meaning to order one of these for while as its perfect for my needs, and i was going to pay something ludicrous like £70 or something silly. But when i try to order this through either collect at store or delivery the site hangs for a minute then says no delivery slots available and no collect at store suitable !!

Perhaps the site is overloaded or has a problem, i will try again in an hour. Heat and rep given.

**EDIT**

Still cant reach checkout without it failing (4:30am Friday) Might pop down to the local store when it opens and see if they will honour the 10% off code without reserving it online, seeing as the fault is with their website.

**EDIT 2**

Its finally working again, ordered and reserved. Thanks again OP
#29
I am so tempted, great deal, thanks OP!

Does anyone know how easy / difficult these things are to descale? I live in a hardwater area, and although we use a water filter our kettle still get 'chalked up'. Obviously in a kettle this is easy to clean out etc, but how would you do it with these? That is one thing that has stopped me buying one so far...
#31
Ordered one, thanks!!!! My parents are coming over to stay at Xmas, dad has an annoying habit of filling the kettle to the max even for just one cup - problem resolved !!!!
#32
I bought one from Currys about 3 months ago............ £59 !!!
Been very pleased with it, but not so good if you want more than one drink at a time.

You can now buy the Breville Hot Cup with Variable Dispense , not cheap though.

The whole unit lifts off just like a kettle, so should be easy to clean. Checkout the video of the product on the Amazon website.
#35
Fab such a cheap price for this. I already have a quick cup but have now bought this model as it has the drip tray, we love ours and no longer have a kettle (we dont drink tea).:thumbsup:
#36
Last time I had a Breville kettle with blue lightning and it was fun whilst it lasted 1 and a half year! I would stay away.

It leaked very soon and was consigned to the bin!:x:w00t:
#37
Just to follow up, i picked up this kettle today and i think its great, despite what others have said, the water comes out very hot indeed, far too hot to drink straight away (i think its the tefal version that produces cooler water)

It takes about 30 seconds to fill the mug with boiling water, i use normal sized cheap 20p mugs from asda and it fills them with about an inch left for milk, so perfect for me. The tank holds enough water for 5 mugs. Overall im very happy i found this post
#38
We on our fourth one and its gone again same fault the lid switch,and like its been said doesnt boil the water red hot also rubbish for Pot Noddles,think twice before buying

spitroast
#39
mmm someone timed it at 35 seconds...

pretty sure my kettle with only a cup or two water boils its in around 50secs....so not really fast enough for me to go about replacing my kettle
#40
I've reserved one of these at my local store but couldn't see anywhere to put the code in while reserving it.

Has anybody else managed to reserve for store pick up with the discount code?

Thanks in advance.
