Breville Still Hot Technology

On standby mode, the kettles illumination will be blue, gradually moving to red as it boils. Once boiled, the kettle will remain illuminated red until the temperature falls below 80⁰c. We've designed this kettle to help reduce engergy wastage by telling you when the water is warm enough to re-use for a second cup of tea or coffee - now there's no need to waste energy or water by re-filling and re-boiling your kettle unnecessarily!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Breville are cutting corners! I bought a new Breville to replace an identical one. The reason I bought another was because when we bought the first, the cable from the power base was the only one in the shop that reached the power sockets in our kitchen. So when it failed, it made so much sense to buy another. Guess what? When we got it home, Breville had made some manufacturing savings and the cable is now a good 7 inches shorter and doesn't reach the socket! Please remember, not everybody has sockets built into the work surface. Won't buy another Breville if I have to move the socket. Why should I when I can get better for cheaper in another brand?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very practical but major functionallity problem I am now on my third such kettle. The design suits us perfectly. You can see the water level, it boils so fast and you can open the lid while holding the kettle therefore making refilling and topping us extremely straight forward. If it wasn't for the button you use to open the lid always failing to operate after a time then I would be giving 5 stars. The only reason I have renewed this kettle is because of its practicality, such a design is not that common, as three out of three have now had the same problem with that lid opening button function. I doubt I will be buying a fourth, now searchig out a better equivalent!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice kettle, eventually. This kettle came with a huge sticker on it which partly tore off leaving behind adhesive and some paper. It took us an hour with 'sticky stuff remover' (which we had to buy specifically for this) to get the adhesive off. If you are buying this kettle, also spend extra on sticky stuff remover - add that in to the cost. And forget about olive oil which works on sticky lables, it didn't work on this. In use we are still getting a metallic taste after about 15 boils, although it's much less noticeable now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from turned out terrible At first it was brilliant just what i wanted with the LED`s but after about 6 months it started leaving a plastic taste in every boil, when i descale it and use bicarb of soda its ok for 2-4 days then the plastic taste returns it still boils and changes color but useless for consumption.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 2 1/2 months Seemed good for the short time it worked, but it just gave up on being a kettle the other day. Keeps failing to boil - light just keeps going on and off. Shame after only 2 1/2 months of use

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful kettle - do NOT consider buying Following the advice in the manual we boiled water in it (twice) and threw it away; then on to make the first cup of tea. We both spat it out as the tea tasted metallic. We tried again but it was no different. After googling the problem we made a solution of bicarbonate of soda and left it overnight, followed by salt, followed by vinegar all to no happy end. We must have spent the price of the kettle again in electricity trying to get rid of the foul taste. Kettle returned! Avoid!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just a kettle I got the impression that with a light to indicate the water was hot, it might also keep it hot. Not so, and infect since I fill for use rather than for storing for later, the light is pointless as far as I am concerned. It is also quite the loudest sounding kettle when heating up - I've never heard a louder and slightly irritating boiler. So I'm hoping that the quality otherwise will at least make it fail a lot later than some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nice Kettle Well, for a start, it boils water all the way to 100 degrees! It's smart looking and the "Still Hot" illumination is both useful and decorative. Compared to my previous kettle, it pours extremely well, no drips. Maybe because my previous was plastic, it does make quite a noise heating up. I'm very pleased with the Breville Still Hot Illumination 1.7L Jug Kettle.
