Breville VKJ385 Jug Kettle, Polished Stainless Steel
I spent a lot of time looking at kettles and reading reviews, the mind boggled! Deciding to go for the cheap option seemed a bit of a gamble, but trusting the quality of products supplied by John Lewis, I went ahead and have been delighted with this kettle. It is a bit shiny - but I only needed it to boil water, not sing and dance! As usual the collection from my local Waitrose was quick and efficient - one very happy customer!

Cheap but doesn't last
Nice basic kettle if it lasts. Only 1 year guarantee when I bought it at the end of Nov 2012. It gave up the ghost today tripping a number of electrics in the process, but at least only the kettle to blame. It wasn't the fuse in the kettle either! First time buying this make - wanted a kettle quickly at the time - but will now look at the more expensive range in the hope that the extra expense in a better quality product will pay off. Would prefer a kettle with a cool wall anyway.

excellent design and an efficient boiler.
I love this kettle, the first I have had by Breville, it has all the features I require, easy to use and fill indicator. Great.

This kettle is excellent value for money, that is fairly quite during the boiling process, the only down side being the capacity window is almost impossible to read.

Noisy and badly designed
This kettle was bought for its look and the absence of pointless features, but has turned out to be really poor even at the price.
It is very noisy - never heard anything like it . The noise drags on because it boils the water for a while before switching off. Water drips off the open lid onto the outside of the kettle.
On the plus side, it does boil water, but I do not recommend this product. After less than a week I am looking for a new kettle.

value for money
I wanted a kettle with no frills. I paid a lot for previous kettle and was left disappointed I therefore wanted a value for money product which did what it said on the tin.. I am pleased to say I got that and more. The kettle is efficient quiet when coming to the boil and pours well. No complaints. Very satisfied.

Probably the best value kettle on offer here. I don’t find it unduly noisy, and haven’t experienced a chemical taste. Flip-up lid is good. The design is very compact and stylish. Note that the pack offers only 1 year warranty, not 2 as indicated here. There is no serial number nor facility for online registration.
