ok for coffee, as water is about right, but not really hot enough for a cup of rosie lee, water not hot enough to release the tea properly

Bought one of these for £25 before xmas. Very good for the money. You probs get around 4 cups before you need to refill and It fills cups a little too much but I just pour a bit away. My main issue - its very loud, you get used to it but the first time i used it I thought i was faulty.

great for a couple but when family come round and 4 cups are needed you find yourself missing for too long reference about the water not being hot is also true did the job for me (couple) for a year or so but sooner or later we bit the bullet and got a conventional kettle also spout scales up quickly so daily wiping is needed hope this helps people out

Try running some diluted vinegar through it once a week with a 1/1 mix of water ;-)

I have both this one and the larger VKJ318 at home and at work. I find they both make water perfectly hot enough for tea.

The main advantages of the larger one are the bigger capacity water tank (6 cups as against 4 cups) and the ability to stop the water flow immediately. This is useful for occasionally filling larger mugs where you need more than one boil, but perhaps not quite two. The VKJ318 has a much bigger lid opening and is therefore easier to fill and also has a dial for selecting different cup sizes, though I tend not to bother with that.

At this price the VKJ142 is a bargain and if you’ve teenagers in the house, will soon start saving electricity wasted through repeatedly boiling excess water in the kettle or boiling water they’ve got bored waiting for and have wandered off and forgotten about.

Personally if there are more than a couple of you regularly brewing, I’d hold out for a good bargain on the larger VKJ318.

Just get yourself a standard kettle most now have 1 2 3 cup markings on the side so you can boil exactly the right amount that you need!

Excellent product.. Love ours and water is boiling when it comes out... Hot!

Great price. I've got the larger one, it's safer for the kids to make hot chocolate

good find

good deal HOT ! x

had three ,all broke after guarantee expired. would not buy one again

These are great! I got one for Christmas and use it pretty-much instead of the kettle nowadays. As for the "not hot enough for tea" - that's nonsense. It makes a great cup of tea. Highly recommended.

These are shocking. Making a group a cup of tea or coffee each takes forever. It may look cool in the corner but it's epically bad. It either gives you a shots worry of tea or overfills A cup. I'd stick with a decent kettle

Hot from me been using the larger one for about 2 yrs now and have bought one as a gift for an elderly lady that could no longer lift a kettle and she fills this with a lightweight jug not used a traditional kettle since I bought this and can't honestly see me going back to a kettle water is hot enough for any drink, cup a soup and even pot noodles!

I've had mine for around 5 years now and it's still used multiple times everyday, even now i have tested the temp of the water and it is still getting around 96-97ºC (tested with my gallenkamp calibration thermometer) which is perfect for my cups of tea.
If this one dies i won't hestitate to buy another one again or the next model up.

Ideal for 2 girls

Tbf, I dont think theyre meant for lots of people! I have a Tassimo machine, and youc an only really do one/two cups, before having to refill!

If you want to make brews for lots of people buy a kettle. If like me you just want a coffee in the morning, when you get up, by the time ive put coffee, sugar and got the milk from the fridge its done. Got ours about 18 months ago, used several times a day and its never missed a beat. One of the best, if not the, kitchen gadgets ive ever bought.

Yeah it does seem a bit odd that people are complaining about this, considering most coffee machines are like that ie: one person machines. Otherwise you get a "proper" machine, or even a caffetiere!

good find

I save electricity by keeping my cauldron boiling all the time using wood collected by sprites from the forest next to my cave. My cauldron has never broken although it did once get knocked down by a herd of disappointed unicorns.

Otherwise, good find.

Why were they disappointed?

They said they missed a deal on here for a cauldron and the appearance of mine in the forest clearing upset them. It's understandable.

They didn't take too kindly to my observation that a cauldron would have been of no use to them as they wouldn't have been able to hold a ladle due to their lack of opposable thumbs.

We didn't really hit it off to be honest.

I think the important question though is did they vote hot or cold on the deal, or did it expire?

oos

I've had one for years agree it's hassle if your doing a round of teas because you have to wait for each one individual swapping cups is a chore, but agreed for one or 2 easy hot enough for tea straight away but you do find it cools down pretty rapidly if left, have done without a kettle since and it does look good. As I say had one a couple of years and this is about the money for one heat

Well done guys Asda have run out, so enjoy the one cup.
I drink more than 4 cups a day and this is still better, its hot!!

Great machine............ a cuppa in just over 30 secs. Thought i got a good deal when they were £25 on Amazon. This is a great deal if you can get one at this price.

They said they wanted to vote hot but I was already annoyed with them by that stage so I passed them my smartphone and they looked at it... then they looked at me... and then they looked at it... and I said "Not only no opposable thumbs but also touchscreens don't work with hooves. So maybe you need to give it a bit less of the 'oh, we're mythical creatures of the forest', you losers!"

To be honest, even if they didn't have hooves, they still couldn't have voted because I'm on O2 so the chances of getting any signal in a town, let alone in a forest clearing were pretty minimal.

I like big cup of tea (like the sports direct mug size!). I have to run it through two cycles to fill my cups. Doesn't save any time.

I don't have a kettle, just one of these. I use mine all the time, from adding hot water for steam cooking to just making a cup of cappo.

Whilst I know it has expired, I can't fathom out why, when it clearly states ONE CUP, that people who have a problem with a ONE CUP product are making negative comments. These comments will not deter the liker of a ONE CUP product, so they are wasting their time.
Actually when I a ONE CUP product I retained my old kettle for when I had guests around that required a larger amount of boiled water, simples.
