£26.99 elsewhere and in stock. Here

At last one of these that actually BOILS the water.

Had lots of giszmos for coffee etc that don't boil it and for those that have to add milk, its lukewarm.

Checked a few reviews, and there are a few flaws, but with such a price reduction i will give iot a wirl.

Heat added.:thumbsup:

its not about boiling 1 cup, its about how fast it does it. as soon as you press the button, it dispenses hot water. kettle takes a while. :thinking:

I have a 3kw lettle, and it still takes so long i wander off, and then come back and have to put it on again.

Impatient i know, but add up all those extra minutes over a lifetime. :-D

Even cheaper here as posted last week

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/546095/breville-fast-boil-kettle-only-26-1

I got one of these last week and to have to fill and empty twice to get rid of the 'funny taste' but it is perfect now and well worth the price.

The only trouble is I was cooking last night and needed some boiling water so it was back to the garage to get my kettle out.....:roll:
#11
Just tried 250ml cold water straight from tap so pretty cold at mo. In a cold phillips kettle which has cup marks anyhow and it took exactly 51 seconds to boil:thumbsup:

I thought about one of these gadgets but will not bother now as mine is just as efficient if I remember to put in just what I need.

Just timed it and from pressing the button to getting your cup full takes exactly 45 seconds for the first one then if you do another one it takes 35 seconds.

Oh and I just filled my kettle up with the minimum amount and it took 75 seconds to boil.

Fot those that are wondering, yes I do have a girlfriend, I'm just bored.....:oops:

I won't bother buying one now. I'll continue with my current option of a cup of bottled water in a 900W microwave for 2 minutes.


That probably has to be one of the slowest ways of boiling a cup of water I can think of! :?

Mods, can you unexpire this? I did it by mistake duh!

Thanks for the timings. The description "Boiling water at the touch of a button" implied (well, to me, anyway) that it was instant... but apparently not.


My dad had an earlier version. They almost (1 or 2 seconds) instantly start dribbling hot/boiling water at the press of a button, but it is a dribble so takes some time to fill a cup. I assume this is what people are timing.

You have to keep them extra clean of limescale due to the small pipes.

Apart from using a kettle (even with a filter you end up with gunk in your resultant brew), can you suggest a better method?


I am really intrigued by this, so sorry if I am going on a bit, (just skip reading this post if you are not interszted) - I am sorry, I simply haven't got a clue what you are finding to be a problem... yes I live in a very hard water area, (and have lived in even worse hard water areas than this one too!) and yes, I use a water filter for that reason, but a 3Kw kettle boils very quickly, (as reminded when the last one bust, and I had to use my travel kettle until I bought a new one!) and I don't have any limescale problems or gunk in any drinks by using a filter jug - that even includes using it in an espresso machine too, (as that is a real pain to descale)
My kettle is best part of a year old now, tatty and nearly worn out with exceptionally heavy use, (as I have just mentioned in a post in another thread today it hasn't been up to the job) being in a bit of a caffeine-junkie household & at home all day - yet it has never been de-scaled, either.

Boiling water in a pan to cook with even produces a thin film of limescale if not filtered, and I have just tried it since starting to write this, and find the SAME problem occurs if I microwave it, however my 900w machine takes 2m 14s to actually boil (ie hot enough for tea, not just for instant coffee), the kettle takes just under 1m to boil it's minimum capacity, which is a fraction more in quantity. In that time I have usually put the tea or coffee out and lifted the milk out of the fridge, so not really left waiting at all.

I was thinking the Breville machine would be ideal for me too, but having done these timings, and following what one posted has time it for, it isn't going to offer me any benefit at all, the time difference, if any, is going to be merely seconds, and when making more than one cup, probably even less :-(

I always use "spring" water anyway (for filling up a coffee machine, for instance)


There's your problem then!... that's not a way to avoid limescale.
Some bottled waters tell you the amount of minerals and/or hardness in it, but most don't, however they are from underground sources (that's what a spring is, the place water emerges from underground!) and of course they have the dissolved minerals in them which is what limescale is!

When i had one it didnt boil the water as it was designed for black coffee, so if you used milk the coffee was barely warm. I returned it.

Do the latest models boil the water, or is it still just warm?
#22
i have one of these.. it irritates me as it heats precisely a half pint of water as "one cup" too much for most of my tea cups!! And makes it harder to heat water for a bowl of hot water or to make baby bottles or whatever xx

Good price tho if thats what you want... xx

so heated xx

can anyone tell me if this is better than the tefal quick cup (which i have :x) , because im not impressed with it , as it doesnt give boiling water as stated . any feedbacck appreciated

i got the latest model but think the only thing they have changed is the pressure.
the water is hot just right really but would not say its boiling but very hot.

Our kettle is gunked up with limescale because not every member of our household uses filtered water.


I bet the same ones are not the first to volunteer for descaling the kettle either!
#26
Got one of these on Friday from Comet on collect at store with vouchercode money off taking it to its current price.........for me this is a genuine decent piece of kit.......water is BOILING hot believe me if you can stick yer finger in it and hold it for more than 2 seconds you should be in the sas........I know iv'e tried and failed so no sas for me........yes its a bit on the Noisy side but so is a kettle?..........the beauty of this thing is its nearly ....wait for it Nearly instant ........by the time i have turned it on walked to the fridge for milk and back its boiled .........and my fridge is ten feet away.......not next door.......:)...........this in my opinion is the dogs swingers if like me your a tea jenny.......full it will make 5 200ml cups...........and as ive said BOILING cups.......my opinion for what its worth just get one.............:thumbsup:

Nope, you don't understand the extent of my OCD!:-D

After pressing the button on top the Breville heats up one MUG of water to ALMOST boiling point then the pressure allows the water to be dispensed to your mug. There is no water until it has reached the required heat and the cup fills in one go. The timings I gave were to complete the boiling process and fill the cup. The actual cup filling time once the water has boiled is about 5 seconds.
#28
Good price, I wouldn't buy one.. I bought one before and it went back after a week.. key issues were.
1. It would only dispense a fixed amount of water (200ml?), not enough to fill a proper mug but two presses was too much. Ofc you could dispense into a jug and then transfer that to your cup but thats flaffling.
2. The dispenser would drip/leak.
3. Water was never boiling hot, not even close.
4. The funny taste never went away.
5. It was easier / less messey to put the kettle on.
6. The water reserve held about 6 shots, I always felt like I was filling it up!

Now, i do wonder if these issues are caused by living in a "hard" water area, maybe if you live in a soft water area it works perfectly? who knows :?

Unless it keeps water at boiling point all the time - which would be very inefficient because it would be losing heat all the time and thus taking power to keep it up to temperature - it's impossible for it to produce any more than a dribble of hot water instantly. Basic physics.
I won't bother buying one now. I'll continue with my current option of a cup of bottled water in a 900W microwave for 2 minutes.

Coffee is brewed best at about 80-90 degrees but served at about 65-70. Each to their own tho.
#31
I take it these are of absolutely no use if I'm wanting to make more than one cup at once?

nice stocking filler....cheers :thumbsup:

I Like the style, heat added - would look nice in the kitchen.
#36
I like the idea of these but they don't seem to be any quicker than a rapid boil kettle.
Not only that but it would probably take about 10 years to recoup the cost (or envoirnmental impact of producing and shipping it) against the 'over filling' of a kettle.

Now if someone made one of these I could plumb into my kitchen to give me a hot tap, cold tap and a boiling water tap that would be great.
A beer tap would do quite nicely too!
#37
Can anybody tell me the differences between this and a kettle? It seems to serve the same purpose but everyone is acting like it's the invention of the century.....
#38
yes its a bit on the Noisy side but so is a kettle?


How noisy? As noisy as a kettle, or louder? And is limescale a problem in these - someone mentioned small pipes....
#39
Only noisy in last 5 seconds of boiling then it comes out.

For tea making it is ideal.
Switch on.
Grab tea bag
Add sugar (if you do)
walk to fridge
get milk
add milk
put spoon in
water comes out (at the right time)

cleaning limescale - it does suggest a routine to avoid any probs
#40
My mum got this as she thought it would help with her arthritus...it's pretty bad this weather and she can't lift a kettle full of water. With this she just puts in 1 or 2 cups worth at a time but the real reason for getting it was because it only takes a few seconds to dispense a cup of really hot water...

That's the downfall of this thing... the water is hot, but it's not boiling, so for pot noodles it's no good at all - even letting the noodles 'steep' for 5mins still results in them being slightly hard and it's just not nice. Blue Dragon noodles though work fine.
