Found 3rd Aug 2013
I went to my local sainsburys in essex and they had the breville one cup on offer for £25. When i went to the till it come up at £40 and then the £15 come off at the end of the receipt. This is a bargain, works out £10 less than the current amazon price.

good price although they can be a bit noisy, added but heat prefer a kettle myself

I have this model and think that it is great. No lifting of heavy kettles and it boils a mug full of water in about 30 seconds. Great price too.

good price. so is this local or nationwide??

Got one of these. Good value at that price.

I love my tassimo.

...but thisis a one cup hot water machine, not a hot drinks maker. Great price and great item, i have abed and breakfast and have them inthe rooms for guests, saves me money as they aren't filling and boiling the whole kettle for just one drink! Heat

Where in Essex?

good price indeed, home bargains had this model at the same price a few weeks ago, they are a very good well made product

Somewhere in UK.

Hate the fact it's a fixed water amount. Over fills my small mugs.

I had one of these and with light use over year and a half it broke so wasn't very impressed. Gone back to the trusty old kettle that was relegated to the loft when we bought this, as said just need to watch how much you fill it otherwise it takes forever to boil!

It was in the rayleigh store. They had 3 left last night. I can only assume its nationwide as it had a proper orange clearance label on the shelf so was not a managers special or anything. I had one before but after a while it kept on leaking from the handle, it was only a little but it eventually died on me. I think the leaky handle thing is an issue but its only a bit so i can deal with it. This one is not doing it yet but only got it yesterday, it could be a seal issue? Anyway worth £25 that for sure.

Does this actually boil the water? I remember the tefal one had lots of complaints about the water not being hot enough.
I need to have my tea boiling hot.

eh?.....doesnt matter how much you fill it - it still takes the same time to boil which is about 30 seconds....and with heavy use mine is still going strong after 18 months .....you're either thinking of a different model or making it up

I bought one about 5 years ago for boiling up the water for the babies bottles and still going strong. We did have to replace our coffee mugs for larger ones otherwise you end up tipping the top half inch of water out every time. Make sure you de-scale it with citrus based de-scaler and not the chemical one though. Although it is redundant at the moment sat next to my tassimo ! I'm sure I will go back to nescafe when I have used all my pods up.

I've got one of these its great. The water HAS to boil in order to work/come out of the spout. I bout mine from Makro at this price 2 yrs ago.

Seriously it's not like a kettle takes hours to boil.... Good if you run a cafe or something

Lots of returns on these, has been replaced with a model that has a stop button (genius ) amongst other things. From product page at Breville:

1.5L capacity
Boils in under 1 minute
Fills 5 cups
The Breville VKJ142 is a hot water dispenser which gives you boiling water at the touch of a button and in a matter of seconds! With a 1.5 litre capacity, the Hot Cup will dispense five 250ml sized cups of boiling water without needing refilling.

A friend had one, water isn't quite boiling but it's close enough for government work and MUCH better than the tefal warm water machine.

Worst kettle ever.Set cup lever and made my tea taste awful.Returned it and tried another and the same thing.Dont care what anyone says this is a terrible product.

This is a bad product. The volume of water to be boiled is not adjustable - it either overfills or under fills different mugs, so it's fair to say the design is a poor one, it's purpose being to fill a mug. Eventually got a Tefal, which is adjustable, and it's been great. I think Breville also brought out an adjustable model, which I'd say is definitely worth the extra.

It's not the time saving that's the big plus with these type of machines - its the energy savings you get from not overboiling (which the vast majority of people do, even if its only by a little).

In a busy house you can get your £25 back over the year ...however earlier machines like this are plagued with problems/complaints and I wouldn't want to swap my kettle for one just yet. Still a good price though!

Brilliant product......
why wait 3 or 4 minutes for a cuppa, when you can get one in 30-40 seconds. Have educated my house hold to use large cups and this works a treat. Mine is over 2 years old, but when it expires, i will by another straight away.

Is it possible to put something in the "1 cup" bit, to reduce the amount of water? Very slightly overfills my cups, but not to the point where I'm bothered. Just thought with all the complaints about this, someone would have had a go at altering the default amount. (put a marble in???)

A Tassimo IS a one cup hot water machine if you print off a template with the right barcode on it.

not sure wht you mean? You fill the tank up like a kettle, but it only boils and produces one cup full, which is a fixed amount .tefal do one with an adjustable cup size, you programme it.

I have had the higher up model (VKJ318) for a few years now and it has some advantages over this:

- it holds more water
- it's per cup amount is adjustable
- it has a big stop button

Overall it's ok but mine has developed 2 faults, the lid at the back doesn't close properly and it sometimes decides to instantly start boiling a second cup unless you hit stop.

I had similar issues with the tefal that this replaced and am looking at giving the Bosch one a go as it seems to work a lot better and more reliable.

Purchased one of these for my elderly gran who broke her shoulder. It was a god send as she could make her own drinks and not have to get her carers to make her a flask for the day. Hers is still going strong and worth the money I paid (about £30 from asda I think).

noisy for 30 seconds and a kettles are noisy for a lot longer, these are brilliant and i love mine and would never have a slow kettle now. its hot water quick for anything

but it only boils and produces one cup full, which is a fixed amount



Yes, but if there was a marble in the 1 cup dispenser, then it would surely dispense a little less?

Its a tank of water, it takes what it needs from the tanks heats inside machine ejects hot through the spout, you can get about five cups from the tank full

Deffo worst kettle ever, plastic taste lasts forever

I had the same two problems with the Hot Cup VKJ318 but now fixed.

In the lid there are a couple of catches either side of the piece the button pushes against. I found these catches needed a bit of a wiggle to get them to pop out. Happened a couple of times but now the wiggling seems to have fixed it permanently.

As regards dispensing a second cup - mine did this a lot until I slightly reduced the level I topped up the reservoir. Instead of topping up to the MAX line, I top up to the largest circle printed on the tank and the problem has gone away.

Hope this helps. I love the Hot Cup and wouldn't be without it now.

I also use my tassimo to produce a cup of hot water.

Had one for about 3 years now - fab bit of kit and would replace instantly if it packs up.

My Tassimo cost £30 (hooray for HUKD!) and can't see how it isnt as flexible as a water boiler? lol. It makes all sorts of drinks and heats water, and will put extra water in if you need.

I'm jealous of these people with kitchens big enough to have water boilers, kettles and tassimos on the surface!

i have tassimo too, bought for the £30 deal...but and theres a but, they are normally £119. So comparing a £119 machine to one that costs £25 is unfair. Ths is sold as a one cup hot water boiler...nothing else, and forthat it does a great job.
