3.5 from 31 reviews


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.

Purchased in January 2019 at Harris Scarf Geelong for $50.00.

Perfect size

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.

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 ?

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

Amazing product!!

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...

Excellent mini kettle for 2

Purchased this little guy to use when travelling, ever since I found underwear in a Hotel kettle. Yep!
The Tefal Mini only holds 800Mls, so its quick, and a very well built unit. The base is sturdy, with an excellent wrap cord. A well priced kettle, buy it!
It just fits in my suitcase so happy travelling......

It suits my small kitchen

This mini kettle is short and fat. It looks very cute. It suits small kitchen bench and small family. It boils water very quick. And its metal surface is easy to clean. Though it is a little bit loud when boiling. Lid is not very easy to open. You need pull a little bit.

Nice kettle

So far I have no issue with the kettle and am quite happy using it. The only gripe I have is that there is no switch to open the top lid i.e. it has to be pulled up. This kettle is quiet, fast boiling, suitable for 1-2 persons and looks good in my kitchen.

Great little unit

Had ours for about 6 years and were very happy with it. It finally died so we are out for a new one now. All kettles have there issues but this is no worse than the others, actually was better. I think there are a lot of cereal wingers on this site expecting perfection for $50. You get what you pay for and that's why there are $500 kettles out there.

Just bought the kettle today. Extremely disappointed that an aesthetic design is not functional. Boiled 0.5 litres and tried to pour it into a teapot, scalding my hand in the process from the steam emitted from the rear of the cover and the hot handle. What a disappointment. Can't seem to find a decent kettle.

I should also add that, due to the steam leakage, after several months a white residue, calcium carbonate I presume, has been deposited around the rim which is unsightly.

Don`t burn your hand.

This small kettle is very poor designed. For filling up, the small lid does not stay open, the automatic switch off is not more than single glow-worm, but more concerning is the steam witch enters the handle and makes it very hot at the top. A product that could have been very handy for the single and small households, spoiled by a nasty cheap plastic top part design.

Great little kettle

I love this kettle which I've had for about 4 months.. Like other reviewers I would prefer less plastic but it boils quickly, makes minimal noise (although noisy kettles don't bother me anyway), pours into my mugs without a problem and is easy to clean. A great buy. 3 of my friends have also bought one and are very happy with theirs..

Hi Bassetluva, Thank you for such a wonderful review of the Tefal Mini Kettle. Great news that it was such a good buy for you and your friends. If we can ever be of any assistance please don't hesitate to contact us. Thank you – Tefal Australia facebook.com/TefalAustraliaMy larger kettle is a Schott glass kettle. If you ever come up with a similar product, I'll certainly try it.My little kettle is now over 2 years old and still going strong.

Great Little Kettle

This mini kettle holds between 50ml and 80ml, enough for 1-3 cups or 2 big mugs. It boils fast, is cordless and looks good. It also has a strainer in the spout. Very pleased with this purchase from JB Hi-Fi online.

Hi Brackenboy, Thank you for you great review of the Tefal Mini Kettle. So happy to hear how pleased you are with your purchase! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you require any assistance. Thank you – Tefal Australia facebook.com/TefalAustraliaObviously it should have read holds between 500ml and 800ml!!

Very disappointing does not pour well at all

Unfortunately I bough this kettle for my elderly mother in law just because of the size and weight. Did not realise that every time she poured the water into a cup that it would spill all over the benches etc. it wasn't until her death this year that I tried to use it happened to me. I was horrified that poor woman must have cursed me every time she used it. Please make a product that pours well that is the reason we have kettles. Very disappointed indeed. I would like some feed back from the company that made this product as it wasn't a cheap kettle!

Tefal Mini Plastic - love it... certainly so far. Two years later... still 5/5 stars from me!

I hesitated to get this little guy at first, but finally caved in as I quite like the design and size (two of us in residence). I've only had for a month and can't relate to any of the negatives other people have found with it, quite the opposite in fact, no dripping, no problems with the switch, no hot handle. Got mine in early 2013 so maybe there have been some design improvements? ;o)
Sweet little unit, can't fault, love it - nice and light easy to control/fill.

I purchased a Tefal Mini Kettle from Target Geelong this year and I have persevered with it but it dribbles from the spout on pouring and I have had many near misses with boiling water going all over the place. If I have family home, I have to warn them about it and I consider the price I paid for this item, it should not have such a defect in style. The water runs back onto the base and is dangerous where electricity is concerned. My name is Muriel Conole.

That happened to me once when I filled up the kettle over the maximum level. Perhaps you put too much water in it? Maybe my answer helps? All the best! Mrs MooseNo, it dribbles, even when it is filled up to the max level.Even if mine is filled up to half of the maximum level it still dribbles from the spout. It's a fault in the spout design. I do not believe that water running back on the base is dangerous because the base is sealed.
