There are a couple of cheap places out there, but it is extra for delivery.Also Laskys have a great customer service reputation.

Dispenses boiling water in seconds
4 times faster than a normal kettle
Boils water in under a minute
Only boiling the water needed saves energy & money

I have mine, and the water really is boiling. I have timed it at 20 to 30 seconds, and I know it sounds strange, but the water is even more boilinger ;-) than from my ordinary kettle.

I am delighted with it

You can 'only boil water needed' in any kettle. The fact they use this as a selling point rings alarm bells. It only seems to save energy and money compared to filling it up to capacity, not compared to boiling the same amount of water in another kettle. They seem to be suggesting that this is the only kettle with a water level indicator, and all other kettles require you to put in more water than you are going to use.

Doesn't boiling water quickly require more energy, not less? Therefore, surely this does the exact opposite of what is claimed and in fact wastes energy and costs more money than a conventional kettle for the same amount of boiling water? It also appears to have some sort of pump for dispensing? Again - more energy and money wasted.
Smells like "marketing genius", also known as stupid lying.

On the plus side, it saves you a few seconds each time you want a cuppa.[/SIZE][/FONT]

got one of these and it's brilliant - especially if you've got teenagers in the house who always boil the kettle then walk off before it's finished...

It is merely easier to measure and boil only the amount needed. Unless you empty your kettle, fill a cup, empty it into the kettle and boil it, which even you will agree is a bit of a faff, the chances are you will be boiling too much. As for the rest, read my further answer below.

Doesn't matter how long it takes to boil on an energy basis, according to the laws of physics you need the same amount of energy to raise the temperature of water (all other things being equal)

Doesn't matter how long it takes to boil on an energy basis, according to the laws of physics you need the same power to heat water by one degree no matter high or low wattage, it is merely a matter of time.

Finally, this argument comes up every time this kind of gadget is posted, I should have mentioned it in the op.

I I bought one of these when they were £25 in Currys & I love it, I hate waiting for the normal kettle to boil now & I love being able to put the mug underneath & come back after a minute or so to a perfect cup of tea! The only downside is that if you take milk then you need reasonable sized mugs or you get overflow.

Most of the normal kettles I have used have a minimum marking on the side, which is usually well over one cups worth.

Faster boil means less energy, as there is less time the hot water is sitting there, radiating heat to the surrounding atmosphere.

I don't think it has a pump either, I am fairly sure it just uses steam pressure to eject the water.

have to agree with majority - this a fantastic product , so easy to use :thumbsup:

Does the water actually get 'boiling' hot like it would if it had come from a kettle? Really tempted to get one of these but had a Tefal thing before and the water just never seemed hot enough!
#9
Not boiling but hot enough to brew a tea bag and too hot to drink straight away!
Had one for about 6 months, love it.

The one cup is boiling, the Tefail quick cup is not boiling...
#11
I measured water at 96c exiting tap ... as good as boiling
