Q & As


Breville Opula Collection Kettle 2.5 5 28 28
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
Attractive kettle Although this kettle ticked all the boxes unfortunately after 11 months the handle came off the lid.But fortunately John Lewis replaced it with a new one within 4 days. I love this kettle and hope this problem won't happen again. 21 May 2014
, strange taste We bought this kettle today as we liked the style. It goes very well in our kitchen. We have a couple of cups of tea which taste very strange. The kettle has a funny smell which is coming through in the water. We are going to try it over the weekend to see if the taste disappears. If it doesn't it will go back to the store. 30 April 2014
Stared well until handle fractured Looks really smart and although other reviewers commented on the difficulty of seeing the water level indicator we felt that wouldn't bother us. In fact it is inconvenient but much worse was the fact that the metal skin is hot to touch and the lid became more and more tight. Eventually the plastic handle fractured, coming away completely. Returned to totally indifferent assistants at local Waitrose. 28 April 2014
