Won't Last

How long is an electric jug supposed to last. Not very it seems. This jug looks nice hence two stars and when it works it boils the water. However it doesn't take long before the lid stops staying shut and a little while after that the automatic off switch fails, and now the handle is coming apart. Probably had it about two years. Basically it is a piece of junk.

Very Sleek and great value

Originally was aiming for a different brand until i saw this model on the shelf, its nice design forced me to swap out. I have not looked back and works well. Its very simple features and ease of clean makes this product a favourite to display in my contemporary kitchen top. Show details

Great Kettle

This kettle is perfect for my kitchen, I have other Breville branded kitchen items so it suits perfectly. I love the look of the kettle and that it is very straight forward to use. It holds quiet a bit of water so if you need a few cups of coffee I wouldn't fill it up to the top as it may take some time to boil. Show details

Not safe to use

When pouring water can suddenly go different direction than the main stream and potentially burn you. It also smells awful (chemicals). Very disappointed. Add to that the fact that due to the design it's very hard to fully empty the kettle. The older model of Breville I had was a lot better. Show details

Disappointed

I own several Breville products and had this kettle for sometime now. The bottom of the kettle looks rusted, condensation appears near the lid at the top for a long time and it overboils when I fill up to maximum level! This is the first Breville product that has let me down. This was a gift but there is no way to indicate this on the form and I had to put fictitious dates and amount. Show details

Very simple and well presented

Simple stlye, clear view of water is a choice you make when you buy these. Fast boil and I noticed they don't use a screen filter net at the spout, made simpler by perforation holes instead for water straining.
Breville has got a bit stylish over the years, good work. Show details

Excellent clear, reliable and durable kettle!

Our families have owned 3 of these clear kettles for over 5 years (almost 10 years), and we believe they are excellent, reliable and durable. We are about to purchase new kettles and we will be buying this exact kettle because it does the job very well.
PS: I have read other reviews about this kettle leaking, and in my experience this only happens if you overfill the kettle to the top. The water somehow goes down the handle and into the base. I believe it is not a fault of the kettle but the person who over fills the kettle. Show details

First & Last Breville Item

Whilst sure it works if you want to make a cuppa but really comes into it's own if you also want to wash your kitchen bench down after every use. Leaking within a month of purchase. Show details

Poor quality and ergonomics

I have owned this Breville kettle for about 1 year. It started leaking from the base a few months ago and now sits in a permanent puddle of water. The electrical connection in the base recently shorted out with a bang and tripped the safety switch, so it's been removed from service. Even when it was going properly I found the small on/off rocker switch under the handle annoyingly small and hard to switch on. The lever-type switches are much easier to use. I don't recommend this kettle. It failed on both quality and design.  Show details

Poor quality

Always purchased Breville but it leaks at the base.
The water also takes ages to boil and it stops and starts when trying to boil.
The boiling water is great once boiled .  Show details
