When my old kettle (also a breville) started leaking after 6 years, i did a lot of research and chose this one. 2 months later i’m very happy and would choose it again. It boils quickly and isn’t unduly noisy; the blue light is quite cool and it’s helpful to be able to be able to see at a glance whether you have switched it on. It’s good that you can do just one cup, but the maximum capacity is also enough for a large cafetiere. I was worried about the absence of a lime scale filter (my water is very hard) but even that doesn’t seem to be a problem yet (no serious lime scale build-up yet and i don’t find bits floating in my coffee).
Its very good kettle,its very good quality kettle,good value for money. The kettle is excellent i will recomended very higth quality product.

A superb kettle, good capacity, quick boil, easy pour and also keeps warm (if you don’t want boiling water) for some time after you make your tea or coffee.
We had a bigger and more upmarket breville kettle and i assumed we were buying the same. Unfortunately it wasn’t, it is slower and has less features but it gets the job done.
Had mine a few weeks and it still works with no problems what more can i ask for it saved me cleaning old one for price spot on.
Breville VKJ670 Polished Stainless Steel Jug Kettle : Kettle looks good, fast boiler. Agree with other reviewers about the water level window, have to guess at water level if the level is lower than 3 or 4 cups. Hoever, be under no illusions, this kettle is very very noisy in use, may be common to steel kettles but never an issue with old style plastic. Irritating if you have open plan style kitchen.
Solid build, seems like it will last. Not much of a filter inside.
We are very pleased with this kettle. It boils quietly and heats quickly.
Great kettle, sides don’t glow as much but not a requirement to boil a kettle so not bothered.
Beautiful design and excellent quality.
This kettle boils very quickly which is good. You remove the kettle from the base to pour out the water.
Fast boil and easy pour (with no drips or leaks) spout. Lid has flimsy attachment to kettle and broke within a short time.
We wanted a kettle we could hear, see clearly and heated the water up quickly, and this kettle satisfied all the requirements. Some people complain that it is too noisy (this kettle helps the slightly hard of hearing and has the ability to be heard over the television) or that it does not show clearly enough (by light) that it is on or how much water is in the kettle, (it has a large view area into the kettle with a soft blue light instead of a thin tube depth indicator which furs up) but this is a kettle which we bought to boil water efficiently and it just does that – a good recommended product.
Nice kettle, looks great and does the job well.
Lid difficult to get off to fill when hot, so we fill it through the spout.
The kettle is ok but it is very noisy and whiny sounding when boiling, much more so than any other kettle ive had.
Our old swan kettle finally died on us so this time we decided to buy a breville. On the first look it is nice with it’s stainless steel finish and it also illuminates when switched on. We filled and doiled it three times just to remove the new taste but i think you have to do this with all new kettles. 7l capacity it will fill most tea pots and thermos flasks. The lid is hinged with an easy button to use even if your fingers are not strong ie arthritis. So on the whole this is a nice kettle very easy to fill, good capacity and quick to boil. We would recommenddid you know that in oklahoma usa. It is illegal to own a stink bomb.
Quiet fast to heat up big quantities of water. Take it out of the box, wash it, plug it and tea is ready.
Nice modern design, boils water perfectly, no problems.
Great kettle – much smaller than one it replaced, but actually holds the same volume of water – better design. Can be a bit on the noisy side occasionally, but nice kettle.
Bought the kettle to match the toaster – looks great and works well enough – good value too. Not as fast at boiling asmy last kettle though.
