Breville JK46 Jug Kettle – First Class Product

A very good kettle which boils in double quick time. A good product with clean lines and you can see at a glance how much water is inside.

Great kettle, very stylish – impressed so much i bought my parents one as well.

It boiled fast and everything but within the 6 months of having it, it blew 2 fuses and when it happened for the last time we went to replace the fuse but it wouldn’t work even with a new fuse. Here are the specifications for the Breville JK46 Jug Kettle:

  • Fast boil 3 kW white plastic jug kettle and base
  • Family size 1.7 l capacity
  • Large dual water windows for accurate filling
  • Fitted with non-slip, 360° rotational base for left and right-handed usage and cord storage
  • Blue illuminated switch on boil

This is an efficient kettle which is fairly quick to boil. My only negative would be that we live in a hard water area where even after using filtered water white scale builds up, and as the top is very narrow it’s difficult to clean inside.

The lid doesn’t stay up on its own when filling the kettle up with water, it has to be heldup, which i think is a design fault. Other than that a quick and efficient boiler, pours well.

Have in the past bought acouple of these kettles and they are excellent in value and design. Cannot buy them on the high street so iam delighted to find i can purchase them on line now.

Excellent kettle great price fast delivery will be buying again.

Because of lime scale our kettles do not last very long. The old one was past its sell by date so purchased this one it’s ok.

Boils the water really fast and i wouldn’t expect anything less than that for this brand.

This is the recommend textbook of my professor, i think it is good. This is thing what i need and i think it will be helpgul tro me.

We’ve tried various kettles including tefal and bosch. The stainless steel ones look nice but are too heavy. The bosch plastic one leaked like a sieve. This breville, at less than £20, seems entirely satisfactory. It does what a kettle should do and, with it’s 3kw, boils water quickly. I’m reserving the fifth star for two years’ time.

Nice kettle but heavier than expected.

I was really pleased that i was able to find an exact replacement for my breville kettle which has given good service for many years and now i can look forward to many more years of service from the new one. It is very unusual to find that same model after so many years.

Brilliant kettle – easy to use, doesn’t drip, looks good and boils rapidly. Had the same one many years ago and bought this as a replacement. It arrived the next day after ordering too.

This was purchased to replace our old kettle which was quite old and seen better days. It is a super item thankyou.

Only a cheapish but it does a very good job. Not too noisy and it boils quite quick.

Have used the jk46 kettle twice running for a a few years before the latest purchase from amazon. Liked the shape and performance but both previouse kettles suffered from leakage problem after two to three years. My latest purchase from amazon had problem with the lid. It was unable to open fully. A little diy with a file soon sorted out the problem. Received no problem with my order and delivery except when i used ‘middx’the first time and ‘middlesex’ the second time instead of sticking to the same and was rejected. It was my first purchase from amazon.

Kettle is just what i wanted.

A better visual guide to water content than many, a good spout which gives a good controlled pour, quick to boil.

It’s looks are good and it seems proficient in what it is made to do. It is difficult to say how it will last but it was not bought for me.

We are very pleased with this budget kettle, it arrived promptly and looks very neat in the kitchen and works very efficiently.

  1. 4.0 out of 5 stars Needs boiling a lot before use
    Have been using these kettles for years for some reason this particular one gave a plasticky taste for longer than any previous ones. Now in constant use and fine but did take quite a few boils and emptying.

    We purchased this kettle to replace an identical model that gave us many years of excellent service. So we knew it was really good value for money. And we were surprised and delighted to discover that the same model was still available.

    Now into my third one of these and can’t compare life expectancy with others but find this easy to see water level,switch on/off,and fill. This now seems to be getting very expensive compared to last 2 i bought.

      1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this kettle
        We bought this kettle a few weeks ago and have nothing but trouble with it. Basically, it turns itself off before it is boiling, not even halfway and this was from taking it out of the box. I eventually managed to get it working by putting cold water in it and turning it on and repeating process. Today it has gone again and the blue light just will not stay on. This is the first breville i have had and definitely the last. Unfortunately we have lost receipt but have gone back to old philips kettle which i was going to throw out.

    We always have breville they are very reasonable and do last several years – but we do also have a water softener, so can’t comment without. Can develop leaks later in life and also can pour in a dribbled fashion later on (could be to do with the small mesh by the spout area.

    It worked well for a couple of years with light usage but then started leaking out of bottom.
