It is a good price but I would recommend getting the variable model, having a fixed amount pumped out is often not what you want.

Very true I would definitely agree Ive had one of these and it really does pay to get the variable one

Could someone explain what makes this better than just putting the right amount of water in the kettle? I could understand if you could control the temperature of the water for coffee etc. But it just seems to me that it's something else to take up space in the kitchen with out adding a great deal of functionality.

Because these boil a single cup of water in 30 seconds saving time and money a kettle often needs more water than that and can take up to 3 mins to boil these are great for small households or if people get up at different times.
a great product worth having

These are brilliant kettles. My gran and dad are both disabled and it is
much safer for them to use, as there's no need to tip the kettle up to pour it.

variable ones best bcz no standard size cup.

Pros:

1. Practically instant
2. Generally more efficient for a single cup of water
3. Water is off the boil when it comes out, so great for coffee

Cons

1. Not good for making a round of coffees when the family's over.
2. Not boiling on exit of the device, so serious tea drinkers may have issues
3. Potential for bacteria in the reservoir, if you don't clean the reservoir reasonably regularly
4. They usually consume electricity all the time, even if it's only 1W it adds up over time. Unless you turn it off at the socket.

I stopped using mine because for me the cons outweighed the pros.

I thought about the same , that is the reason why I do not need a Lambo even if it was 1/10 of the price

Well I appreciate obviously some people like them and find them more convenient. I think people saying they are faster and are going to save money are somewhat stretching the truth.

I just boiled a mugs worth of water in my kettle (which is also rated 3kW), and out of interest I timed it. I got it slightly wrong and there was a little water left in the kettle after I'd made my cup of tea. But in any case it took 40 seconds (not 3+ minutes). Back of the envelope calculations suggest that even if this is double the time the machine takes you are still looking at 10000 cups of tea before the electricity saved covers the cost of buying the machine.

^^ This

My 93 year old grandmother was not allowed a standard kettle in her room at the residential home and she would now not be able to lift one anyway, but this gives her that little bit of independence. Suits her perfectly, particularly as the home's either too strong (she uses tea granules and takes it black anyway) or just served it at mealtimes when she didn't want it.

Which is why I got rid of the kettle and now heat water in the microwave for tea and coffee.

Could you please explain this

Was it a fixed or variable amount?

Got one of these use it to make the little ones bottles pronto, kettle better for tea tho! I really do not care about how many kilowatts it uses, it's a big help in our household.

I love it just have it filled up ready to go pretty instant 15 secs max and you have a cuppa. Even doing two cups of tea fine time you stirred one the other is ready. I like the fact can just stick mug under it while i make a sandwich come back tea ready waitig. £25 good deal for me :).

You probably should ask the manufacturer why, but any electrical product that hasn't got a manual switch, will consume electricity just because a soft switch will require some of the electronics to be live at all times. I put a Watt meter on my one cup device (Tefal I think), and it measured up-to 2W consumption even though it wasn't delivering hot water. Depending on the amount of money spent on the design, some manufacturers may be better than others, but to be frank, if you can measure the consumption on a meter when a device is in standby, that's too much. I found mine was consuming more than my small LCD TV, yet I religiously turn that off at the socket.

To put it into context my Philips Senseo only registered consumption, but not enough to measure precisely, that should have been much the same as the one cup boiler, but it wasn't.

A few years ago when I was investigating solar panels for my house, I decided to go round and measure everything to find out which devices were the worst for standby, with surprising results.
