Additional Information

BRITA Filter Technology

The intergrated MAXTRA filtration in the VKJ797 1L jug kettle means less limescale, more flavour, better tasting tea and coffee. There is no need to wait for the water to filter through the Maxtra cartridge before boiling. It filters and boils simultaneously. The electronic cartridge replacement indicator timer on the kettle tells you when the MATRA cartridge is ready to be replaced.

MAXTRA filtration

This simultaneous boiling and filtering is accommodated by the innovative MAXTRA filtration technology. The small MAXTRA cartridge sits inside the kettle, filtering impurities as the water boils to offer clean and pure boiled water in record time. The kettle features an electronic replacement indicator on the body to alert you when the MAXTRA cartridge requires replacing.

BRITA Filter 1L Jug Kettle, Stainless Steel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 294.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like this kettle very much but ...... I have liked this kettle and purchased the same model a couple of times over a period. I have no complaints apart from issues regarding the lid as, after a short while, it refuses to open on pressing the button. I like the style, boiling speed, and britta filter facility but I have noticed that other reviewers on other sites have had similar comments to mine and had need to return the product. I see that on my latest purchase there has been an improvement in the button so I await the outcome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breville stainless Brita filter kettle This kettle boils very quickly and with the filter the water is clear and fresh tasting. It boils quietly and the luminous light is great as an indicator that the kettle has boiled. Its great also as the kettle can be used as a water jug once cooled so there is no wastes of water. The family love it and I'm glad I bought it. Is well worth the money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not last long I have had 3 of these kettles now. They are great while they work, but they do not last more than 18 months. They start to leak around the bottom rim. Then they just stop working, all 3 of them. I will not buy any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This is my 2nd kettle. Had guests at my house who broke my first one which I had for about 5 years. So I replaced it like for like because I love it that much. Really does help with purifying the water before boil and helps with limescale to. Everyone can tell the difference in the taste of the tea that I serve them although the tea bags may be the same that they use in their own homes. Added feature of keeping water warm (to be honest I have tried it but I know people who have)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Kettle Looks great. Real Stainless Steel, handle and lid might be plastic though. Drinks have no plastic or other nasty taste at all. I always soak the new filter for a few hours, then rinse under tap and let 2 loads of water filter through the kettle before using. This is because you sometimes get some granules come out of the filter. I just hope the lid mechanism doesn't break as has happened on our previous 2 cheaper silver version Breville filter kettles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kettle looks lovely This kettle has had a facelift and it looks lovely. This is the 2nd one we’ve had in 11 years and wouldn’t buy another brand of kettle. It filters it lovely and makes a nice cup of tea. The safety feature works well (my son emptied the kettle and didn’t fill it up again ) my husband flicked the switch and it turned off again immediately and wouldn’t turn on again. Once he filled it and flicked the switch it was fine. All in all a great kettle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big but looks good The kettle itself is bigger than my old one but the maximum line is half way down the kettle so the water capacity is not that big. Also you have to fill it quite slowly because of the water filter. The filter gauge is down to 25% after less than a month’s use. Despite that it does look very stylish and it’s quick to boil.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from the switch for the lid broke after about a year Boils quickly and the filter means tea and water looks and tastes nicer. The coloured light gets a little annoying (and I'm always a bit paranoid my toddler is going to try and reach all the pretty lights) so it would be nice to be able to switch this off or just have one colour. However big problem was the switch to release the lid, this started jamming after a couple of months and after about a year broke entirely. Poor quality as it wasn't a particularly cheap kettle.
