Works well BUT after 3 weeks leaks from the base making a mess and maybe dangerous.
Works well BUT after 3 weeks leaks from the base making a mess and maybe dangerous. This kettle actually replaced a ten month old Breville bke595clr when the lid kept popping up , I am disappointed. I am waiting to hear back from Breville but now have lost trust and feel confused when old previous kettles lasted for years.

A leaker.... definitely a flawed product!
Like other reviewers, we liked the style of this kettle. Also liked its extra capacity and quiet operation. But the appearance of water around the base necessitating frequent wiping before use means we won’t be keeping it for long. This is the second one we have tried and proves the fault was not a one off.

Good Looking Kettle but Leaks
A very good looking design. Like the clear glass, ergonomic handle. Very fast and surprisingly quieter than similar glass kettles. But found puddles of water on the base within a couple of days of use. Water trickled out of the bottom of kettle before it came out of the spout.

The one we bought leaks
Within a few days of buying this kettle there was a pool of water around the base. It seems that it leaks when it’s cooling down. Each time we use it we have to wipe up the water before using it again
Nice looking leaker
Purchased one week ago and kept finding water on the base when picking up the kettle to use but couldn’t work out why. Turns out it leaks from the bottom as the water cools and water is caught between the glass and plastic on the bottom of the kettle, and between the plastic and metal on the base plate. Straight back to the store for a refund no questions asked and replaced it with a new version of our old Breville kettle which worked perfectly for 8 years. Really liked the glass but wonder if there is a design flaw with mixing glass, plastic, metal and heat.
Questions & Answers
my Breville Crystal clear BKE750 leaks into the base with the electric cord. Am i at risk of electrocution? Is it the jug leaking or condensation in the base as hot air hits cold outer metal? Should i take it back?Only a month old.
