Compact for a small kitchen or 2 people
Heats water quickly
Small water windows
Contains some plastic
Great little kettle. Space saving and quick - but loud - and died within 1 year of proper use
Compact design was great for space, speed good, but died in less than a year of modest use.
Looks of reasonable quality. Great if you have arthritis because it weights less than a standard kettle. Boils quickly, but sadly died in the first few months of use. We discovered it died when it blew the power in the unit and tripped the fuse.
Purchased in June 2020 at JB Hi-Fi for $54.00.
Ten years of wonderful service
After 10 years of wonderful service we are devastated that at the moment we cannot find another Tefal 0.8 litre kettle to purchase. No waste of power with this quick boil kettle where you can heat the smallest amounts of water.

Perfect Kettle, Perfect Size & Weight
Our 3 year old Tefal Mini has been our best ever Kettle. It is quick to heat up, not too noisy, and most importantly it is so much lighter and easier to refill and lift when pouring. I would never go back to a larger kettle (our old one still works & never gets used). I do struggle at times seeing the water level through the little window - perhaps this could be made easier. Otherwise I rate it 9/10.

Love my mini kettle,
Perfect for one or two people and not heavy so kind to arthritic hands. I have two, the first is 12 years old, the second about 8 years old, both still work perfectly and they are used at least 10 times a day.

Purchased at Road Tech Marine for $50.00.
QUICK TO BOIL AND COMPACT
Bought kettle to use for 2 people. This kettle boils very quickly, the boiled water has normal taste. The kettle water level is very easy to read, showing up to a level of .08 ltr. The contoured grip handle on kettle is helpful to hold, for a firm grip. The electrical cord on base, can be made shorter or longer, depending on your personal requirements. Product is then easy to store in a kitchen cupboard, when not required.

Kettle is the perfect size for 1-2 cups. Boils very quickly, is super quiet and easy to refill. I purchased one earlier this year and love it so much I got another for the caravan. Tefal make great products

A good product for the price.
The kettle is about 6-years-old , the pilot light failed after a couple of years, doesn`t matter. The main fault is the pouring lip lets water spill onto the bench when pouring into a cup; the same problem as another user pointed out. This part needs redesigning. Otherwise an excellent kettle.

Amazing small jug
Fantastic small electric jug
I purchased on 2009
My son was against my buying however I went ahead & paid for it
Could not be happier
Tremendous little judge
Sadly today it gave up
That was a wonderful innings
It has been used everyday since purchased
I love it & will buy another one
Purchased in December 2009.
Good for the job
The water level window soon clouds over, and becomes useless,but that would depend on the mineral content of your water, its hard to clean so I’ve given up. What do you recommend ?
Purchased in June 2018 for $50.00.
The process from the steam emitted from the rear of the cover and on the switch and handle. What a disappointment. There is too much plastic - the inside of the kettle is lined with plastic not steel. Did not realized when I purchased it. Can't seem to find a decent kettle.
It is not worth for the price.
Great little kettle for up to 3 cups
Very quick to boil water. Everything about this kettle is great except that it is hard to locate the kettle on the stand. Aligning the kettle with the raised power connector is harder than it should be. Not a deal breaker on an otherwise great kettle. Pouring is easy and the kettle has a built in filter in the spout.
Why has my light on mini kettle stopped working after only 1 and 1/2 months will you replace my kettle as that is what i would expect. Otherwise I am really happy with it. Does everything i wanted and i longed for a kettle like this for a long time
My water boils so quickly unlike old style kettles that have an element to heat the water. It is good quality to I think. We have had ours for about 6 months now. We did not want a 1.7 litre kettle but rather a small kettle because we only ever boil enough for a cuppa. I highly recommend this product!!
Cute with serious caveats
Cute indeed. One of its kind as far as capacity is concerned. Fit for purpose, kind of, and up to specifications. It's just a tiny kettle, right?
Minor issues. If not careful steam from under a popup cover may scold you indeed when tipping. Hold on lower at the handle.
Major issues. Have to replace after just 3 mths of light usage. Flimsy, ugly, tiny rocker switch just snapped dead WTH??? Thankfully shop offered exchange/refund straight away. Opted to take a second chance. Will see...
Questions & Answers
where can i get a kettle as i am trying to buy one the mini tefal kettle i have tried every where tank you
Hi Jackie, since writing my review a few years ago, the Tefal Mini 0.8L Kettle has been discontinued by Tefal for sale in Australia. My husband has managed to buy one earlier this month (June 2021) online through eBay (EEESHOP.NET.SOC.COOP) for AU$107 however it came from overseas; Netherlands. This means we need to get it to an Electrician to have the power plug changed over to our Australian 3 pin plug. The voltage is correct and the Kettle is brand new; identical to my existing one, so it's only the plug that's different. None of the places listed on the NDIS website currently sell the Tefal MIni Kettle, so eBay was our only option. Happy to get one despite all the extra cost and trouble, as there is nothing like it on the market - so small, light and a very well made product.
can I buy one of these ?
Hi June. I just tried Good Guys, Myers & many others and apparently they are not available any more through the Electrical Appliance stores. HOWEVER, as I love my Tefal Mini so much, my husband found them on ebay and has purchased another one for me (as a spare) - cost was $106 plus $8 shipping. Good luck .. I hope you are able to get one online as they are so small and lightweight I couldn't be without mine.
Is the limescale filter replaceable and if so where can I find one

A small and compact kettle from Tefal with a 0.8L capacity and easy-cleaning for the convenience of the owner. In addition, it is:
- 0.8L capacity allows you to boil just the water you need, making it energy efficient
- 2 visible water levels (0.5L & 0.8L)
- Stay Clear lid stops dust entering the appliance
- Stainless steel base with hidden heating element for reduced limescale and simplified cleaning
- Removable anti-limescale filter
- 360° base for left-handed and right-handed users
- 2,200W power
- Lightweight and portable
Many people thought that this was a great sized kettle for 2 people to have tea/coffee and a convenient weight for easy handling and refills. The kettle also heats up quickly. It is rated well for value for money and people seem satisfied that it achieves its intended purpose.
A point of contention is that the water level can be hard to see through the small windows and that some plastic may be used in the construction.
