Q & As

Breville Opula Collection Kettle 2.5 5 31 31
Broken lid.... Bit of a common scenario... after 16months the handle of the lid broke off. I would not recommend this kettle, as its longevity is questionable, as it seems a common issue, and we only use the kettle a couple of times a week - so not a heavy kettle user/ Full credit to JL, who enabled my to switch to one of the Bosch kettles. 19 September 2014
Disappointing - Broken Handle As per other reviewers, we have had the kettle about a year and the plastic handle on the lid has broken off snapping where the screws attach the handle and the lid. The lid is now wedged in firmly to the body of the kettle and can't be removed to descale or clean the filter. Disappointing as given the price it should last longer. 12 September 2014
Nice, but noisy. This is a really stylish kettle. It looks great. We have the blue one. It is fairly quick to boil, but it is the most noisy kettle that I have ever heard. No kidding, it is really noisy. It gets 4*'s because it looks great. If it was not so stylish, it would get 2*. 09 September 2014
broken lid I have had this kettle for 1 year and the lid has become increasingly tighter over the last few months and now the handle on the lid has come off completely. This means the lid is tight shut and therefore I can no longer descale the kettle. I have seen from previous reviews that this is a common problem which has yet to be addressed by the manufacturer. I will be reluctant to buy any more of their products. I am returning the kettle to John Lewis for a refund. 18 August 2014
Water tastes vile! Bought the matching kettle and toaster set. The kettle looks amazing but the water has a awful taste and smell when boiled. I phoned the Breville help line and I was advised to soak bicarbonate of soda in water overnight. I did it twice and still the water tastes and smells bad.Unfortunately both will have to be returned even though I like the toaster as I want a matching set 08 July 2014
Broken handle We were happy with this kettle until the handle came off after 10 months of use. Leading up to this the lid began to get tighter and more difficult to remove. A number of other reviewers have had the same problem so hopefully by now the manufacturers are aware of the design fault. It was no problem exchanging the kettle at John Lewis. 08 July 2014
Attractive Design I needed an electric kettle with separate lid which will not seize up like hinged lids. This kettle is a pleasant colour, jug shape easy to handle, boils rapidly. 08 July 2014
Another broken lid A fantastic kettle let down by a stupid design flaw. As with other reviews here, ours lasted 1 week over the (then) 1 year guarantee before the handle on the lid broke. 21 May 2014
