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.

UPDATE... Breville sent us a new kettle, onya Breville!
Sometimes lid pops up when boiling and keeps boiling, sometimes lid pops up when pouring flicking boiling water on you, tried to contact Breville Australia and finish putting the info in the fields only to be told at the end you must be logged in? gives you an email option for Breville USA no email address for Australia?
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
Awesome kettle BKE480BKS. Love that it's clear!
I've owned my fair share of kettles over time, but I would have to say this is the best I have used. I've had it for over a year. It is the quickest to boil. It has a very low level minimum so you are not having to fill it high when you are just making one tea or coffee. Although it does seem to boil for a few seconds longer than others I have had. I love that it is clear. People always ask for a hot drink at my house and I think it could be because they can see that the kettle is clean. When it discolours, as with all kettles, slice up ...a lemon and place it in the kettle, let it boil and leave the lemon and water in it overnight. In the morning pour out all contents and rinse. This removes any deposits and makes it sparkle. I love that it is glass and would chose this material over plastic any day. I would highly recommend this kettle and loved it so much I bought the matching sesame toaster, which is also a fantastic product.

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.
