Useless Kettle…a waste of money!

The look of the kettle doesn’t justify its usefulness. This product looks amazing, very neat & clean. The shiny stainless steel is perfect. However, when this is used, you’ll be annoyed as it doesn’t functions well. It keeps on flashing and never boils. Sometimes it keeps boiling and never stops until you turn off the switch! My husband bought again hoping that the second new item will function well but still the faults are showing. That’s why we decided not to patronise this Breville product (we also had our 3rd Breville rice cooker and had same fate- useless Breville Product!). Now, we’re using other brand. Never again for this Breville Kettle & other Breville products. Show details

Not worth the money

I have had two of these kettles, the first lasted 2 weeks and the start button failed. I exchanged this and with the second one, the lid started to skew after 7 months and wouldn’t close properly. For the price of this kettle you would expect the quality to be excellent unfortunately it’s not. Show details

Won't stop boiling.very unsatisfied

Doesn't switch off after reaching boiling temp. Pretty dangerous really and a waste of electricity. Needs to be constantly monitored. $20 kettles work better than this, and are much safer.

Great while it worked

Design well thought out and worked great, variable temperature setting came in handy.

All good - until the warranty ran out.

One day it simply refused to turn on and just beeped when any setting was selected.

We cleaned the inside with vinegar just in case any buildup was interfering with the temperature sensor, left it unplugged to reset any electronics but all to no avail.

At this price point, Breville need to stand behind their product and up their warranty to 3-5 years to match the price premium.

Pretty and cool features but it’ll need to be replaced in less than 5 years

Love the look & features but they are not robust and fail in about 4 to 5 years max. I’ve owned two and the second has just failed. Both seals deteriorated over time and then cracks appeared in the lid. Water has now bubbled over through crack in lid an impacted electrics, now dead. Had bought my mum one also, hers is still going but has aged poorly. Not what you want for a premium kettle at a premium price. Show details

Doesn't turn off

This was the 2nd Breville kettle I bought, with the first one no longer working after 2 years, so I replaced it with another. This kettle would boil and not turn off, until you switched it off. The first time this happened the kettle almost boiled dry. Eventually, the buttons for the temperature settings only worked on 100% with the other buttons not working at all. Again this occurred a couple of years after use.  Show details

Excellent kettle

We are very happy with this kettle as we purchased it in 2010 and it served us 10 years with no issues. Buttons started playing up last year and only now 26 Dec 2020 we are replacing it as the screw finally corroded. I’m planning to buy the exact kettle again. Show details

Good performance but poor durability

I love the product, it's features and the performance (speed of water boil), but the durability of the materials is poor. The stainless steel container seems to be of good quality and nicely finished, but the plastic lid and specifically the rim that holds the lid it gets cracked after many heating-cooling cycles and eventually breaks. Apart from the aesthetics, it effects the sealing, so every time water gets boiled the steam vapours are popping out of the lid. From what I'm reading others having the same problem as well so maybe this is something common. I would recommend the kettle for its quality and performance but only if you are happy to get it replaced after 2-4 years. Show details

Not too smart

We just bought the smart kettle recently and was disappointed, the guy told us that we can used our google home to turn it on. And that’s why well agree to buy it. But unfortunately it only turn on and off and it doesn’t do anything or boiling. We still need to go there and push the button. Other than that, it was good for the temperature options. But yeah, we just return it and look for another Smart kettle. I think its only smart because of temperature. But using google home or alexa it’s a no no. Show details
