Great machines, would recommend it to anyone.
#2
I opted for the Breville after reading too many bad reviews for the Tefal.
Main point being Breville takes 1 min but delivers a mug of boiling water. Tefal takes 3 seconds but water is not boiling. Also seems to need a lot of maintence:

I've had mine since they first come out. Apart from sending some white vinegar through to de-scale it I've had no problems. As for heat, I:!: wouldn't put my finger in the water.
#4
brill price, been waiting for these to come down!
#5
Tempting!
#6
Fantastic until you want to make two or more cups of tea.
#7
Would that take 6 seconds then? :)
#8
Mixed reports about these, but for this price I'd give it a go!

Cheers OP.

It takes 3 seconds to heat up after that it is constantly heated until you stop the flow or the timer cuts off the flow ....
....or the water tank empties.

some people would move the full cup away, place an empty cup in its place and press the button again... just a thought :thumbsup:
#11
put less water in your normal kettle
job done
#12
Good price compared to what I payed, but after a week you will realise how rubbish this product is. Great Idea by Tefal but poorly executed....no vote
#13
I love mine ad would not be without it. Used sugar thermometer to check the temp as it came out. It made a respectable 96 degrees. If you pre warm the cup I suppose it gives better tea. The Wife drinks tea non stop and loves it. She likes her tea strong and has no complaints.
#14
If anyone wants a free one they can try my local dump. After 2 months I got so fed up with it that I bought an Kenwood energy sense kettle (argos £38.95) which boils just enough water properly. Never found my coffee hot enough. http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4201908/c_1/1%7Ccategory_root%7CKitchen+and+laundry%7C12108409/c_2/2%7Ccat_12108409%7CKettles%7C12108576.htm

Three seconds to heat up and 30 seconds to trickle out to fill a cup x 2 = 60 seconds x 3 well you can do the math... All in the end for a warm cuppa. It's a nice idea - but after a week mine stopped being boiling hot and then just warm. Needless to say I returned it. Stick with a proper kettle :thumbsup:

Absolutely. If you msut have such a gadget, get a Hydraboil industrial job.
#17
Given that this doesnt actually boil water... meh. I would heartily recommend this kettle which I got some months ago. It boils 300ml (one cup measure) of water from cold to boiling in 58 seconds ( yes, i timed it). http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/4222932/Trail/searchtext%3EPHILIPS+KETTLE.htm

I bought one of the Kenwood energy sense kettles from someone on Ebay. they didnt put it into the protective bag (warning in itself, why need a protective bag), before posting in its box to me. It arrived and the clear plastic (it's not glass) was horribly scuffed just by rattling against the sides of its box in transit. Needless to say i returned it.
#18
Heating the cup is an excellent tip, we have to do it all the time with this contraption.
#19
Erm. Mixed reviews as people are saying the water is not enough for tea or coffee. When you add the milk it is really cold.
#20
So, from reading the above: they are great if, you only want one cup at a time; you don't use cold milk; and you pre-heat the cup/mug before using it. Maybe they should add a USB cup warmer to do the later ?

Nice idea, but from such mixed reviews seems like one to miss, unless you don't like very hot drinks.
#21
See other deal some weeks back - same MIXED reviews:

you don't really understand the concept , you would still have to wait for much longer
#23
Does this mean its a 3 second Hot Deal!:roll:
#24
We have the breville hotcup and love it - 50 second and tea tastes just the same as from the kettle to me.
#25
Anyone know how long the filter lasts on one of these & how much replacements are?

Wow that is an expensive kettle :? Why so much?
#27
Sorry but ive internet shopped for 10years and i do buy alot and this goes down as the worst product i have ever bought, the water did just not get hot what so ever towards the end i was putting in warm tap water in it then warm cup in microwave just to keep it warm in the end i was using a pan on the cooker.

unless you drink your tea or coffee like a shot of sambuca stay clear folks.
#28
The commercial versions of these boilers are good - we had one at a place I used to work, but they heat the water up slightly differently. They boil up a few litres, not sure exactly how many, and keep it in an insulated reserve tank, as this is depleted they heat more mains water to keep the tank full (they're plumbed in). Even if you emptied the reserve of hot water it only took a minute or so to be ready again. Seemed to work well for an office of about 50 people and the water was as hot as a kettle.

I've toyed with the idea of buying one of these Tefal things, but haven't - some of the reviews seem to imply they aren't that good. The reason I held off in the past was they seemed too expensive - and if they worked so well, why are only one company making them?

I reserved one and then having checked the reviews i've decided i won't be picking it up, apparently regular use by two people will mean you get through one filter every couple of weeks and there £5 a go on amazon.
Also warm cups of tea don't do it for me, i'll just spend £15-20 on a decent kettle :geek:

I like my tea at 101 degrees...its the taste!

Everyone up North heats the cup - standard practice everytime, tea stays warmer far longer - Another of the DG tips!

Warm tap water in a warm cup in a kettle in a microwave in a a pan on a cooker...probably took a bit longer than 3 seconds! :-D
#31
I:thumbsup: had one of these, but swapped it for the breville one which i found a lot better.
But thats just my opinion, i would not be without it now.

You dont need to use the filters, just fill it from your britta filter jug.
#33
I've used one of these a fair few times at my in-laws, it's really good. The early models were withdrawn and sold off at outlet stores because they didn't produce the boiling water they claimed they did (trading standards job). Now they don't claim that they do exactly what they say on the tin. Perfect for coffee which should be less than boiling, not good for tea.

Also great for quick 'sterilising' a dropped babies dummy. You also get filtered cold water too, if you want to filter tap water.

As for the filter being changed after 6 weeks, well my bro-in-law has never changed his, and so what if you don't use the filtered water option, no are no worse off than the water from the tap (which is cleaner than any of that mineral water cack you might buy in a bottle)
#34
After fitting one of the free British Gas electric energy monitors, I could see just how much we were spending on boiling kettles every day!

So I went out and bought one of the kettles to boil on the gas hob instead.
#35
I was given one of these, I have to say it's useless for making tea/coffee with milk as the water just isn't hot enough. It's ideal for those coffee's that have the water just under boiling or cuppa soups, I don't think I would go out and buy one even at the cheaper price.
#36
Thanks, but will look out for one that actually does boil the water!
#37
this dosnt heat the water up hot enuff for tea BE WARNED

Trading Standards don't have any authority in outlet stores then...

I have a feeling you totally made that up
