Ear piercing beeps
I knew this kettle was loud because it was hurting my ears.... One day I was walking home and my wife boiled the kettle - I heard it beep from 3 houses away..........I've given this kettle away to charity now......too much pain to go through. The need to unplug the kettle every time you use it or it won't turn on is also extremely annoying. Had enough of this thing now.
Had a diff model Bellini, but wanted this one so bought it on special in March 2014. The other one broke after about 15 months, so got this one out sunday 2/11/14. It's noisy, bips every time you do something. After it has cooled it is very hard to restart. Even to the point of changing power points.
It will be returned to target for a refund.
For the price it seems to work well
If people read the manual they might find the kettle works as it is meant too, don't complain about a product if you have not bothered to read the instructions.The ability to set the temperature is useful and saves energy. It seems to do exactly what it was advertised to do.
It drips water from the handle
The kettle works fine, it boils the water fairly quickly. It has a temperature gauge which comes in handy. The one problem it does have is that it drips water out the bottom of the handle. We end up having to keep a dish cloth under the kettle to soak it up.
It's fairly quick
Drips water from handle
Worse kettle ever, seriously that bad
We bought it on Thursday, only because we couldn.t find the similar Kambrook on special anywhere, Friday we had to start pulling the cord from the wall every time we refilled it to reset the kettle, Saturday night it started blowing fuses everytime we turned it on and was already corroding on the inside bottom. This is seriously the worst kettle ever and should not be allowed to be sold, although coming from Target / Coles who'se going to do anything
Expensive, unreliable, cheaply made, fire hazard
Terrible quality and design
Do not buy this kettle. Amongst the poor manufacture issues of this kettle outlined by others is poor overall design resulting in terrible reliability and premature failure. The location of the control buttons on the pad at the botton of the kettle are prone to having water spilt on them, rendering the kettle useless! There are good reasons why on/off bottons are located on the handle of the kettle away from the base in the better brand names, stick to the good old simple brand name kettles with an on/off switch. There is not much to be saved buying this piece of rubbish!
Terrible design, unreliable, prone to damage, over complicated, confuses users
I was given a kettle for mother,s day within a short time the spout fine filter fell out and could not be refitted ,subsequently I bought another within days same problem .The instructions were not exactly clear .I still have to switch at the power source every time,and restart .Just too complicated .I have had many jugs without problems.
It is very quick ,and quiet
hygiene not secure
purchased at target good price used twice then started leaking out of handle, took back got 2nd one done the same thing very disappointed as this was the only problem with it, had great features on this kettle, deceided to go with a Russell hobbs kettle a little more expensive but worth it
great features & different temp settings
leaking out of handle on both kettles
I have had this kettle for about 18 months and it leaks. it started to leak about a month ago. The first leak is from the handle, when it has finished boiling the water it starts to drip from the bottom of the handle. The second leak is from the bottom of the water level indicator.
Getting to know kettle
To start with thought it was faulty as it did not seem to want to re boil. After a few tries worked out that while the led lights are on only need to press on/off, but if no lights have to push, on/off for 3 seconds then just one more and it is away.
boils quickly and pours well.
can not see the water level very well.
Worst kettle I've ever used.
Bought this kettle from Target on Friday and returned it Monday. Only managed to get it to boil once and after that it wouldn't reboil. When it would turn on, it would turn itself off after 5-10 seconds and we were not using the keep warm function. In the end, it was quicker to boil water on the stove as we just couldn't get it to stay switched on.
Add to that the incessant, unnecessarily loud beeping. I knew that the kettle beeped but this is so loud and beeping three times when it has boiled (the one and only time we did get it to boil...) is just pointless. It beeps every single time you press a button and is way too loud. The water level indicator being under the handle makes it difficult to see what the water level is, especially if there is condensation. I've had better performance from $10 white plastic kettles from Kmart. Will never buy Bellini again. Got it half price in after-Christmas sales Wouldn't boil, very loud beeping
This is perfect!
Great kettle for the price payed.Boils water very very fast,and very quietly.Lots of features you would expect to pay well over $100 for.(EG;Look at the similar brevill for $149).I must say it sure looks the part,with all the led lights and live led temp display in a stainless steel finish.Mine doesn't beep loud at all,maybe i got lucky,or thay fixed it.But im glad it beeps,because i like to know when the water has boiled.A selling point for me.features include temp control from 40 to 100 degrees,keep warm function,soft open lid,heat program fu...nctions,cordless power base.Got mine at target,half price,plus another 10% of because last one in stock.I highly recommenced this product at $44,its simply unbeatable hands down.Did i mention it looks the part..........
Would be fab if only there was an option to turn off the beeping
I wanted to love this kettle, and I did love all of its features. It was great to be able to set the temperature, and it was intriguing to see the water temperature rise as it boiled. It boiled quickly and was quiet while it did so. However, the kettle emits a piercing beep whenever you press a button. To boil it, you have to press button (repeatedly) to set the temperature. You then have to press a button to start it heating. Then when it's done, it beeps three times. It is a heck of a lot of beeping for a cup of tea and makes the kettle unsui...table if you are trying to quietly use it in the middle of the night, if you're trying not to wake a bub, or if you have shift-workers in your home. The beep is louder than the average microwave. If there were an option to disable the beeping or if you'll be using the kettle in a kitchen closed off from the rest of the house, this would be a wonderful product. As it is now, I would not recommend it to a friend. Can set to desired temperature rather than relying on presets, tells you current water temp as it's boiling, boils fast and is quiet while boiling. Pressing any button causes a loud beep, plus it then beeps 3 x when it's finished, and there's no option to disable the beeping. The beeping is loud so this kettle not suitable for a household with small baby or shift-worker.
Good kettle, boils quickly and quietly..but the beeping..
I do like this kettle, but the beeping REALLY annoys me. It's just so pointless, maybe one beep when it's done but not THREE and a beep every time you press a button, which you need to press about 5 to get it to boil to 100 degrees! Ridiculous. I am seriously considering replacing it for this reason alone.
Boils very quickly and quietly, I like the temperature gauge
The beeping, which cannot be disabled.
A great kettle with loads of features.
The beep can be annoying when you want the kids to sleep in, but you get used to it.
The water level indicater is under the handle, so you have to double check it to see the water level, as it gets condensation which makes it a bit hard to see.
But for the cost and the features, you can't go wrong.
Loads of features, good build quality
Water level gauge and beep
Questions & Answers
Hi. How can you disable the keep warm function altogether? It’s costing a fortune if you don’t come back to the kettle.
It is very easy:
When you repeatedly press the program button you will have the following preset temperature settings in sequence: 40°C , 60°C , 80°C , 100°C and 70°C, the first 4 temperature settings (40 , 60 , 80 , 100) are not (Keep Warm Mode) so you can use them if you don't need the (Keep Warm Mode) function.
But 70°C is a (Keep Warm Mode), when 70°C is displayed you can use (+) button to increase the 70°C by 5 degree increments till 95°C, or the button (-) to decrease the 70°C till 50°C, all these settings are (Keep Warm Mode) settings and you will see after the desired temperature is reached that the on/off button continue illuminating red (in stand-by) to repeatedly, from time to time, turns the system on and off to keep the desired temperature fixed, so if you don't need to keep the desired temperature fixed simply press the on/off button, or lift the kettle from its Power Base and put it back, to stop the (Keep Warm Mode) function and the button's red light will be also off, but the desired temperature setting will stay as it is in stand-by and if you need to reach it again press the on/off button to restart the heating process and when the set temperature is reached again it will be stopped automatically but it will be again in (Keep Warm Mode) unless you press the on/off button to stop this mode's function again.
Otherwise any setting will stay as it is unless you change it or you turn the power point button off and then on to restart.
Hello VF! You sweetheart! I think I have fixed it now. Thank you so much for your help. Much appreciate you taking the time to write out a detailed explanation. Very kind. <3
I who appreciates these generous compliments and kind gentle words. Actually I did nothing other than a should-be natural human behavior.
One of countless reasons why people live mutually in societies is to support their wellbeing by complement each other otherwise no single human on earth throughout the history can or could master all jobs, crafts, skills and also possess all of its material, tools and accessories to serve himself and dare to live autonomously. And for sure you yourself don't know, or actually you know, that you serve directly or indirectly, from where you live, numerous of people literally allover the world and receive their service directly or indirectly as well exactly at the same moment.
Receiving kind nice render words is another reason to live healthy and socially life.
Best happy times now and forwards I wish you and your beloved.
Switch on but not work. Any help?
First what do mean by (not work)?
* When you plug the kettle's Power Base into a functioning power point, does the display illuminate with green digits showing the water temperature before heating or not?
*If the display illuminate and you press the on/off button, is the button illuminating with red light but the kettle doesn't start heating the water inside?
The answer is important to have an idea about what is happening and whether you can try a possible troubleshooting.
Otherwise generally you should try this: underneath the kettle in the center of its outer plastic bottom you see several concentric metal circles which serve as contact conductors when you turn the kettle clockwise or counterclockwise on its Power Base, and in the center of the Power Base there are also several concentric plastic circles where you can see between them cooper contact points and also one is protruding from the side of the outer circle, turn the power point Off and unplug the Power Base from it and try to clean all those metal circles and cooper contact points from any kind of dirt, electrical isolator such piece of plastic bag or cling wrap or even cooper oxide with ear cotton tip. Otherwise this kettle is really heavy duty and lasts long unless it is maybe used carelessly.
When comes in stock
This nice premium quality kettle (Bellini BTK615) is, before, usually sold in Target Stores and also in ebay but apparently not any more because Bellini company upgraded the model to a new fashionable Bellini Kettle - BDK20B but without digital display which means it doesn't have the same all features and functions as in this version, the new model is now also sold in Target Stores ($49) and in ebay at least ($69), as you can make your own Online search about that.
