These type of hot water dispensers usually retail at £50+ we have the Breville Hot Cup and wouldn't go back to a kettle now. So convenient, quick and saves on energy.

Also has a three year warranty.

Great price for this, was looking at the £50 ones recently as you say. Thanks!

Anyone know how these compare to the more expensive ones?

not energy efficient cannot boil much water in one go and can be a hazard so be aware if you have young children

Tesco have the breville hot cup for £34.50 and appearance wise the breville looks a lot better.

Thank you for this link, I have had the Breville Hot cup 1.5l for a few years and love it, unfortunately my dear mother has cracked the lid (how, I don't know) and I have been looking for a replacement.

Remember you get a 3 year warranty from Aldi so this is a great deal.

I think you will find these are more efficient as you only boil the water you use, unlike a kettle when you boil all the water in it and you are unlikely to use all of it, but YES some people might put exactly the right amount in, but most do not.

Anything that gets that hot can be a hazard to children, but is it more of a hazard than a kettle?

I just use my Dolce Gusto Melody 3 without the pods.

Children, they're the ones that are not efficient, cannot do much in one go and are a huge hazard. X)

I bought one of the Brevil ones when Asda had them at £30......... Tesco are £34.50 at the moment, ide rather get a name I know but still hot >>>>> Tesco's one here

I was umming n rrrrrinng over get something like this, what put me off the cheaper ones is the set cup size they deliver, so in the end went for the bosch filtrino @ £80 ... I know expensive for a something to boil water but you can vary temperature and the amount the dispenser delivers and it matches my Tassimo would never go back to a normal kettle, there also great for making non lumpy gravy hehe

It's entirely down to how often you use it. The average person probably isn't boiling the kettle that often so it wouldn't be efficient and going to end up costing a fair bit in power but in an office with more people it's more efficient.

I just couldn't buy one that didn't have any reviews, it could be a complete waste of money. oO

go on be a devil for once

is the temperature it delivers the water at variable or is it always approx 100 degrees?

Loose leaf tea should be brewed at around 70 degrees...

I have a breville one of these. I would say that the outer gets way less hot than the outside of the kettle that it replaced.
Since it is only having to boil the water we need - be it one cup, or 3 strikes me a somewhat more efficient that boiling whatever happens to be in the kettle to use some of it.

Does not produce boiling water, cold.

This looks great.

I can't justify it though, we're skint after buying that new Panasonic washing machine! :-(

Voted hot btw!

I boil enough water in the morning in our kettle to make a cuppa and fill a thermos flask which is a more energy and cash efficient way to have several cuppas a day than this :-)

Can't go wrong with 3 years warranty...

"Instant Heat Kettle"

What sorcery is this?

Instant boiled water is almost physically impossible in a domestic appliance. What they are referring to is pre-boiled water. To heat water from cold in an "instant" would take a lot of power.

Im single with one child and use exactly the amount i need. very quick and efficient. also the bonus is my now 9 year old child slave (joke) can make me an occasional cup of tea safely buy pouring one cup of cold water in top, pressing button, putting cup underneath with tea bag in etc and make me a tea. there's no way 'd let her lift a huge boiling kettle but this is perfect for teaching safety skills and independence. Also good for elderly or disabled for similar reasons eg arthritis etc. I also have an old kettle the other side of the kitchen which I use for when I need a lot of water eg pasta water or guests. I thoroughly recommend a hot cup device and wouldnt go back. Really does affect fuel bill.

What is your reference for that? These machines used to produce water at 85 degrees when they first came out but recent models are 100 degrees and truly boiling and infuse tea bags perfectly. Be interested if you have seen spec. on this, doesn't seem to be on link.

I bought one from Aldi 2 years ago. Within 3 months it stopped working. I took it back to the shop for a replacement,but was told that they didn't have anymore, therefore i would have to contact the manufacturer! I told the lady that because i bought it from the shop that they had to replace it, or give me a refund...but she said that they had change the rules and i had to deal with the manufacturer directly. I was fuming and told them that it was their problem and not mine, and that if that was the case they should, by law display it somewhere for customers to know their options. I was given a full refund...but that has stop me from buying electrical products regardless of the warranty that they offer. I thought that this machine was of poor quality.

Always had great service from Aldi, whether goods are faulty or I just changed my mind.

Under the Sale of Goods Act, if an item becomes faulty in the first 6 months, the retailer is bound by law to give a replacement, or refund. Display notices stating otherwise are not required as that in itself would be against the law as it would be contradicting the Sale of Goods Act. If in a similar situation, just calmly state that you are returning the item under the Sale of Goods Act, and you require a replacement or refund from the retailer as it is their responsibility, not the manufacturer's. if they argue, ask to see a manager, if the manager argues, tell them you will be contacting Trading Standards, but it should not normally get that far.

Instant heat? We obey the laws of thermodynamics in this house

Brought one of the older models from Aldi about a year ago. It went back after a couple of weeks as the first cup boiled after the unit had been off for about 2 hours always tested of plastic. If used immediately after this the 2nd cup had a tint of plastic taste and the third would be fine. I found that this wasn't nearly as economical as I'd be poring away the first 2 cups and before too long I'd have to top up the reservoir, which also used to leave drips across the kitchen.

They may have changed their materials but having also brought recently their coffee machine which also tastes of plastic, I would imagine that they make these products so cheap because the materials are not as expensive and that's the compromise.
