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.
