It does not last.


All my jugs last for at least over five years.
The Breville lid broke off within three.
Bought it from David Jones very disappointed.
Phoned Breville they didn't want to know about it.

Purchased at David Jones for $80.00.

Full of plastic elements


I bought this kettle because of its claim to be plastic free - which is a lie! The lid is full with plastic (boiling water will condense there). Glass Jug feels-and-sounds-plastic-too

Purchased in March 2020 at eBay for $65.00.

Got this as a wedding present a couple of years ago. We were happy with it, but condensation builds up around lid which leaks down the outside when your pour it, making a mess. This was ok when it was my wife and I, but now we have a small child and can’t risk hot water falling on her when she is around.

My Breville kettle is a few years old and I’ve always loved it but recently it’s leaking water at the base. Pooling on the element plate & overflowing to my bench top. Has this happened to others? Why? Is it dangerous and can it be fixed? I don’t want to buy another as it’s otherwise fine but getting very frustrated at the continual mess. Thanks

I dont know what you mean by a few years. I would expect 3 years including warranty 1 year. That to me is in the time frame of ringing Breville and informing this product is faulty and you want a replacement under consumer law. A kettle should last at least 3 years. Get your ducks in a row and ring them.


And yes it’s dangerous. Stop using it,

At least 4 years but I’ll find my receipt. Thank you!!


I purchased this kettle a few months ago and have enjoyed using it, however the base plate has discoloured in a light brown horse-shoe shaped mark where the element is below the base plate.
I've tried boiling white vinegar 1:2 with water (and have also suffered a boil-over) and left it to stand over night before boiling it again with clean filtered water - unfortunately the stain mark is still there and makes the water appear murky at certain angles.
Is there anything else I can do to remove the mark in a safe and effective manner?

Can't help you there. Sorry. Maybe Breville has a solution.

I put a cut lemon in pre boiled water and sit overnight and it’s clean in the morning. Give it a good rinse out

How long would it take to boil water at an average?

With the kettle full (4 cups) at room temperature filtered water, it took 2:45 to reach boil, and held it at boil for a further 8 seconds for a total time of 2:53. Keep in mind that 1 cup = 250mL, and most coffee mugs are a bit larger than this, so you may only get about 3 cups.
