Perfect, just what I was looking for as the Mother-in-Law keeps boiling 1.5 litres of water for 1 cup of tea!

Thanks, ordered
Any know of one with a stainless steel caddie?

these are great for people who have problems picking up a kettle for whatever reason. I bought one years ago for an elderly person who could no longer hold the weight of a traditional kettle. It was refilled it by taking a small measuring jug from the tap to the hotcup which allowed fer to make tea safely.
great for anyone with dexterity issues

HOWEVER

dispensed volume of water fills a small cup only, if you like a large drink this is unlikely to meet your needs

ALSO

water temp below 95C so not ideal if you use for v60 / aeropress etc

I have this kettle and to add to this the amount of water it spits out is around 240ml give or take a few ml which is enough for a normal size cup, if you have a larger cup and you're making a brew for 2 people boil it 3 times and split the third boil between the 2 cups. Or if for yourself, just bolt it twice and let it overflow into the container
.
The temperature reading is 85°c when dispensed in to the cup.

Also, if you have just filled it with cold water it will take around 30 seconds from the moment you press the button till it completely fills the cup, sooner if the water is warmer.

Not a bad kettle to be honest, but I would have preferred a feature to set the amount of water it spits out though.
Thanks , hot for me and ordered
I only drink hot water from the kettle. Does the water have a plastic taste? My mum got on of these last year and the water tasted funny. Thanks in advance
do you just plug it in?
bought this last week from amazon for a similar price. If you have big cups then don't bother with this one and get the bigger version.

Agreed, no size adjustment. We have big mugs which it fills just over half. So one is not enough and two is too much!

We had the bigger version for 6 years and highly recommend it. Ive ended up buying it again as this one is just frustrating
This is....`hot`

Yes just fill with after and plug in, ours is great
Have a serious think about it before you buy one of these.
All gimmicky and no practicality
Took mine back
Looks nice but tastes awful
Didn't feel like it'd properly boiled the water
Also embarrassing when you're trying to get a round in when you've a gathering and it doesn't live up to expectations. You don't even get a full cup.

Do you see any other brand selling their own version of this?

Great devices, but you need a traditional kettle as well.

Not perfect - these make horrid tea as the water doesn’t boil.

Agree 100%. Tea is horrid made with these. My Mum got one and it took me ages to realise why tea was horrible when we went to visit as it never used to be. Finally realised it was this naff device not boiling the water fully.

Twiddle, Had one for years, and I only drink tea, tastes great. Does what it’s meant to do quick convenient cuppa in a regular sized mug

Morphy Richards, Swan, Vonchef, MLITER, Neostar, Addis, Zojirushi (Upmarket and stupidly expensive).........................so yes
just ordered. hot
This looks like the one I have and I appear to have the opposite problem - it pours a large mug, in fact no room for milk in some large mugs we have, I actually put a travel mug under it, which I then pour out from.... - that said, I do love it - very useful I initially purchased it for my grandma for the reasons mentioned above but it was unsuitable
Heat for price, however, we have the larger model up from this and to be honest have found it to be rather dissapointing, quite often i only get half a cup primarily due to my wife and i prefering different volumes of water in our hot beverages.
We bought this as we believed it may save money however this needs boiling for EACH cup, when making several it just becomes tedious and time consuming and clearly costs more than just heating the kettle.
These are great for people who may be on thier own and are brewing one cup a time but for "normal" use these are absolute tosh... honestly buy a kettle.
All these reviews are making me dread my one! £27 for a crappy kettle is better than a £44 crappy kettle I guess....hopefully I find it half decent

My Mum and partner also thought the tea was fine, I just be more sensitive to the taste of horrible tea. They did notice the difference when going back to regular kettle though. I’m not making this up, it’s pretty obvious when you think about it; water passes through a hot element, it doesn’t sit boiling like it would in a regular kettle. Most teas should be brewed at 100 degrees (Oolong at 80, for us tea snobs).

The difference will be more clear in different water areas too. My Mum has very hard water, so possibly more noticeable than in a soft water area.

You should never use boiling water for tea anyway as that destroys the taste, so you're probably not used to tasting proper tea.

You clearly know nothing about brewing (“steeping”) tea. Freshly drawn water for each brew; 100 degrees for black tea, 80 for Oolong, see Google for temps for white tea etc (I don’t often make these). I’ve been to tea workshops, I don’t know who told you that rubbish. Perhaps you’re thinking of coffee?

Also, it’s not necessarily key that the water is “boiling” (I agree you can leave for 20s or so) but it’s important it has “boiled” and then cooled to the correct temperature for the type of tea. Drink water that has been “almost boiled” then water that has “boiled”, the taste is different - especially in hard water areas.

Take a look at the ISO standard; iso.org/standard/8250.html

I had one of these briefly. Tea was awful from it. I can see it being ok for coffee... Water needs to boil for tea or it tastes bad..
Oos
I've got one of these, works well, if like me, you have no friends.

There is one but it's more expensive. Does yours continue to boil on some occasions after dispensing 1 cup then boiling for a second time? Ours seems to get stuck. Bought ours a few years ago from amazon for about £24.99 if i recall.
I had one of these back in my batchelor pad days and it was great.
It is terrible if you're making a round of tea but perfect for making one cup. That's why it's called hotcup I guess?
One thing nobody seems to have mentioned is that it makes a right racket for the short time it boils. Anyone who has actually used one will testify.
Contrary to what some have said above, the water does boil, and that's how it gets up the tube to the outlet.
There were no off tastes on mine whatsoever, unlike every teasmade I have ever used. It was just a handy fast kettle that boils one cup.
I had this model before I got the bigger variable dispensing mode one, I only drink tea and they have both been great.
I have even measured the temp of the water and it is consistently 98-99°C.
i still have an ordinary kettle for times when you want to boil more water but i wouldn't hesitate to buy anoither one when this one eventully breaks.

No it doesn't but ours has an annoying habit of switching off halfway through boiling
