You're welcome.


I don't own one but it does appear useful for making a cup or two for drinks, or perhaps quickly heating up water to then use to cook pasta or rice. Just unsure how good and long lasting it will be and if I could live with the extra clutter when I already have a kettle and perhaps an induction hob is good enough for quickly heating water..

Also convenient for instant noodles, soup type meals. Yes, I find boiling a kettle tiresome

Can you choose the volume of water this dispenses? Something I find frustrating about the Breville One Cup I currently have is it dispenses about 30ml too much, meaning I have to tip a bit away to fit in the milk. Not a massive bother, but just annoying!

Good point. I was assuming this one would be a case of keeping the button pressed until I would have the water amount I required. Maybe not if your Breville one dispenses one cup of water at time.

Does look similar/the same but rebranded.

What put you off in the reviews of the VonShef one because it has 81% with 4 and 5 stars? Some of the low mark reviews don't seem so good. I wonder if there was a bad batch or two at some point...could be worth us all using a kettle after all.

Surely a kettle can be bought for less than the cost of this item?

Edit: Yep can get two and still have money over: argos.co.uk/pro…719 £12.49 each

It was the temp (some were saying not hot enough for a decent cup of tea) and others mentioned it being really slow to fill a cup up. the description states 25-30 sec to fill and i bet that was the smallest "cup size" they could get away with. I drink about 7 pints of tea a day (work from home) and waiting that long to fill (likely to be 1:30) i might as well boil the kettle
These one cup things are great if you regularly make just one cup of tea.

Otherwise you're doing a cup, letting tea brew. Then 30 seconds later (they take approx 30 secs to fill one cup I think) do another cup, let it brew. Repeat. Then start to take teabags out, remembering what order so you let them all brew long enough, all again whilst standing waiting in between.

So instead of boiling the kettle, going off for a couple of minutes & coming back to pour, then going off for a few minutes to let them brew, then finishing the tea, you're forced to stand at the one cup to do them all, essentially wasting time!

Ideal world I'd have one of those cooker taps on the sink that does this for the odd time I'd need it, plus a normal kettle.
