Great kettle, fast and not noisyI was looking to replace my Russell Hobbs stainless steel kettle, which boiled okay but drowned out the radio because it was soo loud. The Breville kettle is a revelation as I can now hear the radio over the kettle boiling. It boils water quicker as well. The pop-open lid is easy to use and refill the kettle. It is nice looking and I am happy with my purchase so far. I got mine as a return at Amazon for cheaper than usual. Normally $79. Show details
Nice functioning kettle, noisy thoughHappy with the look of this kettle and its function generally. If you want a quiet kettle, you may be able to find a quieter one. It is quite noisy but has a little bell alert once finishes its boil. There is a handy glass view for water level which is easy to read. The kettle opens by a handy push of a button which works well. This kettle replaced a kitchen aid one where the lid button broke and got jammed after two weeks of buying.... I purchased a white kettle and it is easier to keep clean than a stainless steel one. Boils water well, but giving it 4 stars as it is noisy. Show details
Don’t waste your MoneyVery poorly made product. Within the first few weeks of use the indicator bell stopped working and the button to open the lid also stopped working, so I had to fill up the kettle from the small spout opening. Within 16 months it stopped working! How infuriating as the 12 month warranty only expired 4 months earlier! I contacted Breville and all they could offer was a discount on another kettle, not a replacement. Will be going back to purchasing Russell Hobbs appliances as in the past they have not disappointed with quality and also offer 2 year warranty. Show details
Best KettleOf all the kettles I've had over the last few years, this one has got to be the best. It's not loud, boils quick and looks great. One of the best kettle purchases in a while but very pleased with this one. Show details
Best kettle we have ever hadWe purposely went looking for a red kettle for various reasons. The BKE620R was smart looking, had a good feel and it carried the Breville name and we have been happy enough with other Breville products that we own. It might 'just' boil water but there are things that you notice after purchase where you think 'that was a good idea to design it like that' . Going back to the store this afternoon to buy a Breville toaster to replace the 'other brand' that we purchased at the same time (a month ago) and has been a big disappointment.
Warm Cranberry colour. Very quiet !. Cord storage that actually works !. Water level window on both sides of the kettle. Easy to see 'ON' light.
Questions & Answers
Breville Kettle BKE620
Stops boiling to early its been doing that since i first got it ...we have to turn it back on 2 or 3 times before its hot enough could it be a thermostat? we are sick of it ...and it wasn't a cheap kettle .
According to the manual this kettle is fitted with a safety device, which protects against overheating should the appliance be operated with insufficient water and for additional safety is also fitted... Read morewith an additional thermal cut out which in the event of overheating, the kettle will automatically shut down to prevent further damage and should this occur, take your kettle to an authorized Breville Service Centre. I suspect that one of these safety cut outs in your kettle is faulty. Hopefully you may receive a warranty replacement from the place of purchase.
That's one reason why Breville stopped making the BKE620. $60 might seem like a lot to pay for a kettle but it costs a little more than that to get a good quality product. At the moment (May 2017) that means $100+
Where can I buy a replacement lid for bke620b electric kettle?
Try contacting Breville directly - they should be able to help you. If still within the warranty period they should replace the kettle.
