Hmm... Looking at the reviews, its a little spluttery and just about OK for one cup. You can't stop the pouring once it starts and if you have 3 or 4 people over you have to boil it 3 or 4 times which you wouldnt do with a kettle. The 40 second boil time for one cup is about as long at it would take in a normal kettle. Have to admit Im not so impressed with this kettle but it might be useful for others. Heat for the price though

We have an ordinary kettle but keep it in a cupboard for when we have people round. Otherwise we use this one cup my partner and I. No hassles here
We’ve had ours for a year now. Pros are - fairly fast boil and not filling a kettle up with a load of water only to waste energy. Cons - Does splash a little and looks cheap.

If you live alone or there's just two of you and very few visitors and you want to save money then this is the bee's knees - I can't fault it - even sometimes not having a full mug. I drink tea like a Veneno Roadster drinks petrol so having a not so full mug of tea isn't a real issue but it is cheaper than boiling a normal kettle - the only real issue for me, personally, is the 1.5 ltr capacity (<< referring back to the Veneno Roadster).


If there's more than 2 of you with lots of family/visitors, who like their tea/coffee, then this falls into the "it's a gadget that I bought but now sits in the cupboard, used once or twice"

I have a Breville glass kettle with a flat heating base similar to this one argos.co.uk/pro…586 I just timed how long it would take to boil a cup of water. It was 35 seconds. I think these are far better value than this HotCup Kettle. Also its so easy to clean. Just a few drops of lemon juice to clean out the lime scale and its as good and sparkly as new.

OK but how many times do you (or any normal everyday human beings) actually fill the kettle with just enough water to boil?

Most people will fill the kettle with excess << the whole point of this device is to boil only what you need at that time - therefore using less energy / saving the environment/cost

But like I said in my above comment.. it's only good for "loners" or couples with few family/visitors.

I remember the times when a teapot would be sitting on the table with it's cosy for an hour or so and then topped up with hot water if someone came in for a chat. Times have changed - most don't make a pot of tea

Well Im the only tea drinker in my house so you could say I 'live alone' for the purposes of the kette. Mine is always empty. Its glass so you'll never turn it on empty by accident. I fill it with as much water as needed and once its finished boiling its empty. I thought everybody did that. Besides this also prevents limescale and extends the life of the kettle. If your happy with your OneCup then that's fine. I just don't buy your arguments that this is better than an ordinary kettle.

I live alone and I'm frugal (tight old git) and I used to have a kettle that I'd fill with just the right amount of water (but there's not many like us) unlike my old man who used to fill the kettle just for one or two cups until we got him one of these.

For most, like I tried to explain, this will be a gadget that's put away in the cupboard used once or twice. For some (loners/couples) if their kettle burns out/needs replacing it's one to go for.

Where did I state "you should buy this whatever?"
Out of stock now anyway.

Love these, I have a different model, and had one for about 4 years now. I work from home most days (so on my own) must have at least half a dozen cups of tea during the day. I'm convinced it saves me a fortune, and a bit of time. Trying to convince the rest of my household to only fill with 1 or 2 cups at a time would also never work. If you have cause to typically boil only 1 cup at a time they are great.
I love this gadget. I got one for my gran when she was no longer able to lift the kettle. She can now make herself tea, coffee, cup a soups and instant porridge.
Try in store. Just been Saddle Junction, Wigan and there was..say 15 to 20 piled in the foyer

Had mine for 2 years before using it...agree with previous poster, it probably does take the same amount of time for the same amount in a kettle but it's a bit tricky to get the right amount, also it would be great if you could adjust by a few ounces.
My particular item stopped illuminating blue whilst in operation! And now, for Pete's sake, I have no idea when it's completed...apart from when it's stopped trumpeting and stopped pouring water into the cup!
We have this and a coffee pod machine; a kettle has proven superfluous.
I got 2 Breville kettles when there was a deal on them a few years back, one lasted 13 months before leaking, the other 15.. I`ll never buy another Breville product again as a result.

If Russell Hobbs made it, it`d be worth buying. My previous Russell Hobbs lasted well over a decade before the element burnt out, the Russell Hobbs/Brita filter kettle I replaced the Brevilles with has lasted a year so far, & shows no signs of failing, & has the added bonus of not scaling up every couple of months.
