Very Sleek and great valuethe Crystal Clear BKE750
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 Kettlethe Crystal Clear BKE750
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 usethe Crystal Clear BKE750
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
DisappointedCrystal Clear BKE480
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
Condensation on glass all the time, stiff switch, loudthe Crystal Clear BKE750
Every kettle has positive and negative reviews so we punted. Bad decision. Unlike our 10 year old Breville BKE290 (glass) this one builds perpetual condensation on the glass and lid inside. It does not affect operation only aesthetics. Whether the condensation creates long term deposits on the glass remains to be discovered. Breville claimed all glass kettles do that but IME no they do not! If one keeps the the lid open after boiling the condensate will clear. The rocker on-switch is stiff and it requires one hand holding the kettle and... Read more one pushing the rocker unless the kettle is on the full side. Traditional push down levers are more friendly. The advantages to the rocker are aesthetics and that it is unlikely to be inadvertently turned on. The 'filter' is large holes behind the spout; it is a very coarse sieve not a filter, but not important if you have good water quality (we do). It is noticeably louder than the '290'. The push button soft opening lid is easy to fill and the opening wide enough so easy to clean. No leaks so far and it pours without splatters. In our opinion it is not one of Breville's better efforts and not so bad we will return it but given our experience not recommended to others as there are better choices.

A good reliable kettle, but there are design flawsthe Crystal Clear BKE750
I bought my kettle 23 months ago from Bing Lee for $80. It has been reliable, and mine has not leaked. It is quick to boil, easy to use, but one thing that has happened is that the plastic insert in the lid has cracked and also crazed. Whilst that has not affected the functionality of the kettle so far, I think in time it will. I phoned Breville customer care to see if I could buy a replacement insert, but the only thing on this kettle that can be replaced is the base. I think this is a major design flaw on an otherwise great product,... Read moreand cannot understand why there is an insert in the lid at all, as one can see the water boiling etc by looking through the sides of it. I suggested that they consider my feedback and send it to their design team.
Very simple and well presentedthe Crystal Clear BKE750
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.
Probably the best clear kettle currently on the marketthe Crystal Clear BKE750
I was hoping to replace it with the same model as my previous Breville glass kettle, but it was no longer in production.
- Clear: I was after a clear kettle. I like to see if there is anything floating in the water before I pour my cuppa. :)
- Lid: I wanted one that had a good lid. The lid on this one is not great. The mechanism is not built as well as the last one. You have to press the button very firmly. I wanted a kettle that looked good.
- Style: There are some really nice looking kettles these days but they are not clear. The styling r
Breville you've done it for me!Crystal Clear
just bought this kettle as a replacement to a different brand I did not like (reviewed earlier)
It is in the near $100 mark transparent 1.7 l
It seems quite good with an automatic lid that is quite convenient. That is you press the button and the lid slowly fully opens.
I hope I get a good service out of it . One thing it has not from the one I replaced is a double wall so you could burn yourself if you touch it after boiling it. (I realise this reading other reviews.
Re taste of water, Only once I had a kettle with this problem and it was a
Excellent clear, reliable and durable kettle!the Crystal Clear BKE750
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.
First & Last Breville ItemCrystal Clear BKE595
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 ergonomicsthe Crystal Clear BKE750
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 qualityCrystal Clear
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 .
Beautiful kettlethe Crystal Clear BKE750
Using it for last 3 weeks, this has worked as expected. However, its too early to tell. Will submit another review after using it for a while. Water level is marked clearly. Heats up pretty quickly so no complaint on that.Show details
