Hopefully there will be a coupon next Thursday in the papers too to get an extra £5 off? :p

Hot water in three to five seconds. I find that hard to believe if they are basing this on a normal full cup.
But it is still a "jolly good deal" Heat added :)

I suppose it depends on what they say constitutes 'hot'.
#6
is this just a small kettle, rather than the other quick cup types? eg. filtrino
#7
Tassimos instant heat water pretty quickly. Maybe not that quick, but still pretty quick.

Looks a decent buy for a quick cuppa.

It might be one of those ones that keeps all of the water hot all the time, and costs you a fortune to run.

since it has boil dry protection it will be that type

I do not thinks so, the boil dry will be incase the reservoir is not filled.

must work on the same method as a coffee machine where the cold water trickles thru and is heated, seems like a fair idea if it heats water well enough
#12
Ok for coffee but for tea afficiando's boil a kettle on the hob is the only way to go!
#13
Great price, and the product sounds good, but I can't help thinking it looks just a little tacky. Heat added for the price though.
#14
I bought something similar (Murphy Richards) when our kettle broke. Doesn't heat up in 3-5 seconds though.
Cost twice as much as this one. Mine can be set to different sized cups. This one doesn't say it can but from the pic it looks like it has some kind of indication/selector on the top.
Makes waiting for a kettle to boil seem like an age.

These are great had one for several years i would question 5 second boil !!
#17
From what I can make out, this is one of those "instant" boil one cup type, not a maintain the water at boiling. The shape of the item looks like the heating element is housed inside the panel behind the cup, just like the Morphy Richards one-cup version we have. These almost boil the water as it pours the water, only boils what you pour, not the reservoir.

It has been in the Mirror the last few months, or the Sun before that. Not a definite, but there has been a trend on their coupons...

...it doesn't say a 'cup full' of hot water in 3 - 5 seconds though...so I presume it just trickles out. Probably end up warm by the time the cup is full (_;)
#20
Has anyone here bought one? What temperature is the water dispensed at?
#21
I have a tefal one cup I wouldnt saying it is boiling but it is as near as dam it..........it also dispenses a mug very quickly would say 4-5seconds.

It is true, what happens is it heats the water as its pulled through. because its heating only a small amount of water at a time its massively quicker. Also saves lots of electricity as it will only heat the water you use not the entire kettle.

Hmm. According to my calculations, it will take 27s to heat a cup (250ml) of water to 100degC (from room temperature) using a perfectly efficient 3kw power source (max available on a plug in device).

So either the water is barely warm, or it is 'always on'. Or contains another power source (nuclear?)

Looking at the design (and the apparent lack of radiation shielding) I imagine it keeps exactly one cupful hot in that top section.

Perhaps it is like an electric shower, it heats water up as it passes through... so 3-5 seconds is the time before hot water starts coming out of the unit, and then it would take another 30+ seconds of water of water being heated up and trickling out to fill the cup.
#25
Yes I guess that could work. But it is very misleading advertising in that case...

just fill your kettle to one cups worth and boil that .. it will take the same amount of time.

if this boils the water on demand from cold, a 3kW standard kettle and a 3kW 'instant heat kettle' should heat the water in the same amount of time. It's science and math pure and simple.

the difference will be very very nominal.

And if it does have a 'always hot' resevoir - let's face it .. you never want to have one of those. As others have pointed out - will cost a fortune to run.

i would rather have this.. 8)
Philips HD4644/00 White Energy Efficient Kettle, 3000 Watt, 1.7 Litre

cheaper.. more efficient.. has a minimum water volume of just 1 cup rather than the default of 500ml or about 2 cups...
if you replace your regular kettle with this.. saves counter space as well..
and it actually BOILS the water rather than just "heat" it...

I would think this is a 'Boil-on-demand' heater, boils a small amount of water very quickly. I took an old tefal one apart and the dispensing hose is surrounded by an element (like an electric shower) and only heats up the water used. I would almost say for certain this isn't a 'hot water dispenser' but I wouldn't like to get into hot water :p

Yes, possibly, but then pesky physics gets in the way: 3kw = 27 seconds for 250ml water.
#31
Has anyone got one of these? I had one of the one cup type kettles that came out a few years ago and hated it because the water was never hot enough to make a decent cup of team. Think I might wait for some reviews of this. Its a very good price though.

Can you return these if it is not hot enough?

another pointless gadget

fill kettle, boil and by the time you have got the mug out, put the teabag and sugar in, then the water will be ready


plus these things dont deliver water hot enough to make a proper cuppa

For those still wanting to know how good this is and whether it works or not here is my early review;

Size, quite big, a bit taller than a regular kettle and a bit bulkier (tank holds 2.5 litres, a litre more than the Breville OneCup).

Looks - Stylish black with chrome lines, not a bad looker. Has a Green LED under the spout so your cup gets a green glow whilst it fills - probably looks nice in the dark.

Performance - It absolutely DOES send out boiling? water in less than 3 seconds (timed on my phone to about 2.8s), but the stream is quite slow, it took 28 seconds from flicking the switch to getting a full mug of water, so 3 seconds to warm up and 25 to pour - still quicker than the 60 second minimum on my Phillips 1 cup kettle, and it will go on and continually pour the just over 2 litre (from max to min) with no break so better than a kettle that would take a refill and 6? minutes to boil that much. The water I discarded from this run-through was pretty darned hot in the bowl so it seems pretty close to boiling to me.

Taste - yes taste. So far I'm not sure but the water has a slight smell/taste to it. I've tried running it through and have probably boiled off about 5 litres so far, and this morning there was still a slight smell to it. Now was it because it was coffee and it 'burnt' the coffee being a touch too hot for black coffee or not I'm not sure, but I will be watching this and if it persists I will be returning it under the 60-day guarantee.

I bought £10 of other goods and used the (yesterdays) Daily Mirror voucher to get £5 off (which probably means if I return it they will only refund me £25).

NB the Breville is currently on 25% off in sainsbury's at just over £35.

nice review although i assume your kettle is 1kw as mine takes two minutes to boil when full

plus, put coffee in after filling with water as it wont burn it then.

Personally, I will stick with my kettle as that takes 30 seconds to boil a cuppa so this offers no real benefit (plus doesn't use kitchen space and saves me £30)

I think my proper kettle is at least 2kw (Phillips one cup, as mentioned in other posts - it takes 60 seconds to boil the one cup) - are you sure your kettle can do a cup in 30 seconds, that seems pretty darned fast as I thought my Phillips was one of the quickest?

My timings for the 2.5 litres was based on no kettle having more than 1.7 litres hence one full boil then a refill then boil again, hence my 6 minute timescale.

I also notice that the Breville OneCup works in a slightly different way, taking 30 seconds to produce exactly a cup of water so maybe not ideal to try and comapre the two - this is basically a less powerful version of a water geyser that many workplaces have and produces a single stream rather than just a cup.
