Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup

Product information

Fancy a nice hot cuppa in seconds? Speedy, slick and simple, the Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup dispenses boiling water at the touch of a button. In fact, it’s 4x faster than using a conventional kettle and by boiling what you need you can save energy too.

The Breville VKJ318 can cope with up to 8 x 250ml cups (2L) without refilling and ensures that water is only dispensed at boiling point, making perfect hot drinks each time. What’s more, the smooth and continuous flow of water keeps splashing to a minimum. Thanks to variable dispense, you can choose from nine different cup sizes to fill. A manual stop button will also stop water flow mid-cycle. 

Using the Hot Cup is easy – simply lift the main unit off the base and fill under a tap just like a normal kettle. The base also holds a removable drip tray, which is straightforward to clean and dishwasher safe.

The Breville Hot Cup also features a blue illumination as it boils, which along with the sleek design is sure to bring a bit of ‘wow’ factor to your worktop.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 110 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Buy I puchased this product on behalf of an elderly friend who is suffering poor eysight and was having difficulty using an ordinary kettle. He was so pleased with it as it has made making a cup of tea much easier and safer, he is telling all his friends about it. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanted for long time 7 months after I first spotted these, i now have it. Hassle free and just push button and a cuppa is done. I use bottled water mainly mixed with the odd bit of tap water. 25 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Breville Hot Cup Excellent product. Only downside we need to keep refilling it !! 24 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant product, clever concept A friend suggested one of these when my husband had an operation and was told he should lift nothing heavier than 'a kettle with one cup of water in it'. Now I fill it, he makes the tea! Actually, he can fill it too by just using a mug to put the water in. We were very dubious about how useful the Hot Cup would be at first, now we use it almost all the time. Instant hot water at the push of a button... 14 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient, a good buy This is a different concept for boiling water rather than a kettle, but it works. Perfectly hot enough and more economical. Worth considering, would recommend. 11 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT Bought one for my Mother and decided it was so good I'd get one for myself. Perfect for us because I like tea and my partner likes coffee so by the time the water has boiled the second time for his coffee my tea bag is nicely stewed! Easy to use and to fill (manually). Only down side is you can't boil two mugs worth together but for us, it still works well. The water doesn't boil instantly but it is shorter than a conventional kettle because it is only boiling up one cup at a time. 09 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Probably wrong to rate it so far.... As I am wondering if we are just unlucky and have a faulty item. Having read all the reviews on here, we purchased the water dispenser on Tuesday. Have read all the instructions carefully, so pretty sure we are operating it correctly. But it keeps churning out two cups at a time, ie after cup one, then reboils immediately and at first, we weren't prepared and scalding water went everywhere. Help!! 05 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent piece of equipment I bought this to enable my husband, who has recently gone totally blind, to make drinks for himself safely. He hasn't mastered it yet, but I find myself using it in preference to the kettle for making drinks, instant soups etc and think it excellent! Fast, efficient, easy to calibrate, can't imagine why I never invested in one before!! 02 June 2015
