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

Classy Looking Kettle

We have been using Breville kettles for years, the one before this had problems with boiling dry just after 1 year of use, when we contacted Breville, they sent us one of these and it has worked perfect for over a year, easy to clean off scale with 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water, let it sit for an hour then boil it, tip it out and wipe the bottom with a cloth and its like new again Show details

Not a good product

Good early on but built up scum, impossible to de-scale. Now (2 yrs in) throwing bits off its element so have stopped using it. Would not recommend. Short life span? Show details

Disappointed for such an expensive kettle

We had a Breville kettle for 10 years and thinking this is a great reliable brand, decided to replace it with this newer style. Within a week, water began to leak from the bottom so when you lifted the kettle up there would be a pool of water around the base and on the bench. The water caused the base to short so the lights on the buttons on the base were going on and off. Very disappointed considering the price we paid for it. Show details

Purchased over two yrs. Has done really well. water tastes great but we use filtered water anyway,
Has survived being over flooded by filling and walking away.
has stayed nice and shiny and colour still as is new,

however sadly the lid finally sold the farm and started popping open. and now it has cracked on the plastic part near the lid. So buying another one today Show details

Bad Luck!

Disappointing for Breville kettle, what a terrible experience ever! Just bought this kettle from Myer with 20% off. First use to boil water, filling water below the max. line. The Kettle would just keep boiling until it was turned off manually. The auto shut-off doesn't work, it keep boiling for few minutes and the kettle filled my kitchen with steam and seems will expose. I had an old Breville kettle at $60 and last for 2 years and this one was worst. I don't think anyone would keep a bomb at home. What I can do is refund only.
