Louise.
Look to the right of the page on Amazon as Amazon is still selling it for £25 with delivery but a 3 to 4 week wait for it to be delivered.

sorry yes, I did see that after I left my comment

I have this kettle and although I'd highly recommend it it is a measured 250ml of hot water so of your cups smaller it'll spill over or bigger under fill.

Absolutely wonderful device. Boiling hot water and SO quick. Got one for upstairs too. Both ours dispense 270ml exactly. Quicker to boil this twice for 2 cuppas than even a fast boil kettle once.
Much better for you too as many people don't empty the kettle & often boil the same liquid up a few times - this concentrates the nitrates in the water and other nasties which aren't good for you. Freshly boiled water every time!
I rate this and my Kindle as my 2 best buys in last few years.

If I was to use this as my new kettle, is it not possible to just click a button and hold it for the desired amount of water I need?

Good deal. I have an Aldi (?) hot water dispenser and it's one of my best buys ever. It's better than this and was cheaper but given that it was a one week deal and no longer available then I'd say go for this.
You won't regret it.

No it's a measured amount each time - 40 secs is all it takes each time

This is rubbish then atleast for me, Id be better off just using my coffee machine for hot water, it's instant!

would be interested in a hot deal for a controllable amount of water version

these are rubbish and the plastic taste lasts forever!!!!!!!!! i sold mine on my local seek and sell and bought a normal kettle, also rubbish for doing hot water bottles

if you want cold tea thats ok, put a cup on the hot plate be my guest, one slow drip at a time that as love as its a pyrex mug or oven safe to survive the hot plate. Dont forget to switch it off a min or so before your cup is full as really dont want it to keep dripping after you taken your cup away do you.

friend of mine has one of these and seriously quick ups of tea/coffee by the time you stirred in the coffee of the first cup second cup is ready to go.

Emma, you really shouldn't be using boiling water for a hot water bottle! Hot tap water should be plenty hot enough for that!

is this sucking power all the time ?

Does this cup dispense the full cup's worth at the push of a button or can you hold it down for the amount you want?
This would ideal for making baby bottles upstairs on a night but we wouldn't need a cups worth per bottle!

I had one of these hot water dispensers.......cant remember what brand it was but I also got rid of it as the water wasnt boiling hot.

tried to read this about 4 times and still cant work out what the heckingtons you are going on about!

Use a plastic measuring jug (Wilko 500ml) instead of cup/mug then pour what you need. Bit cooler by then.

These things are great for tea, but to be honest I don't much care for the 1.5 ltr capacity, that's like two small cups. I also think Breville kind of overcharge for a relatively simple product. You're mostly buying blue translucent plastic.

I've seen some "generic" brands which do this kind of product better, as do Bosch.

I had one of the original tefal quick cup dispensers. Loved the idea of it, but the water was hot, not boiling, which made a big difference to the taste of tea / coffee - to the point my OH would not use it and bought a kettle instead. I would be interested if anyone has got one of these - is it actually boiling? Or just hot? ...looking for an excuse to buy one again....

Hot....But am running out of worktop space with all the great deals.

I don't rate these. Tried one and much prefer using a good old kettle.

I would probably recommend them for old people who struggle to lift a kettle but that's about it.

Makes the whole house know you're making tea, and also they should but a warning of being deaf.

For foul tasting drinks be my guest.Would certainly not recommend.

With all of these (and regular kettles) you have to run it through a few times to get rid of the taste. It does tell you that in the instructions had you read them.

I also have one of the original Tefal Quick Cup dispensers and I've maybe been lucky as the water from mine is boiling!

I'd highly recommend this kind of product if u can get one with a good capacity and a variable volume of dispensed water.

I really rate mine (this model) a standard size mug is ideal. They are probably clearing these out as they have a newer model which has a control for the amount water dispensed (and a couple of other features)

Ordered Thanks heat added

Or for anyone with a Tassimo, use that instead with the yellow disc

We had one of these to use in the back office of our shop for quick teas, but we stopped using it as the water tasted horrible, gave it a decent chance but it never seemed to go away, bought a kettle for £5 and been happy ever since, complete waste of money.

I'm not sure it's this model but my other half had one at work and

a - the taste never went away even in a year's use
b - the water was never as hot as you might like (tho the idea that water must be boiling to make good tea is a myth - it's probably SPOILING your tea)
c - it used more power - over a week of use - than the kettle which replaced it (probably due to people using mugs and so using 2 shots for every cup)

It's another one of those gimmicks pseudo-middle-class people like to put in their 'kitchen' (aka pierce-and-ping reheating zone) and nothing more - buy a kettle...

Gutted paid £39.99 yesterday at Argos

had mine a few years now and i love it . Perfect amount of boiling not warm water for average sized mug

Washed it out used ot many times but still horrible tasting.Please dont try convince me any other way i couldnt live with it.Back to an ordinary kettle now and surprisingly it didnt need washed out loads of times to taste nice.

Who uses a hot water tap to villa hot water bottle??? Not me! I use a kettle! Not with boiling water of course, I put cold in it first....but my point is you'd have to boil this thing like three times...whatever happens....lots of you have wasted your money today :-(
