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 133 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good but shame it leaks Reasonably speedy, easy to use water heater, unfortunately they leak. The first one within 2 days, it was replaced with the good customer service you expect from John Lewis, The second one lasted a week but then started leaking so I gave up and requested a refund. Other than that major flaw I would have been very happy with it ! 01 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Leaked all 2 Litres of water over kitchen worktop Leaked all 2 Litres of water over kitchen worktop Only had Breville One Cup for 3 x days Appears to be a common Complaint VERY POOR, Will Go For a BOSCH One Cup 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome for OAP's I got for an oap couple, they spoke that they were getting weak an not as strong as they use to be. So I purchased this kettle for them, and instantly they loved it. They found it easier than I though they would. This is a great kettle for the older generation - even better if you can give it as a gift. 12 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by BRILLIANT I first of all got a cheaper version of this where you had to stop the machine when cup was full. I got a breviille first for my mum who is is 92! Once I had used hers I had to have one for myself. It is a brilliant cam control how muchcones our ranging from the smallest of cups to a large one. It stops when dispensed the correct amount. It is easy to fill and me and my mum love ours. My sister lioved it so much that she got one! 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product far better than a kettle and more economical plus the usual good service from John Lewis 04 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by No good Unfortunately the kettle would switch on randomly and pour the content of the kettle all over the kitchen work surface. This was extremely dangerous as it was boiling hot water. Returned item to shop for refund. Thankfully my children where not harmed. 03 November 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by LEAKED!! The Breville Hot Cup concept is brilliant and my 3 weeks usage up to now has been faultless However mopping up 1.7L of water that also went into cutlery draw (wasn't 100% shut) completely ruined any benefits especially as googling this fault has shown I am not alone Disappointing at this price level 02 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Awaiting replacement after leak within 1 week of purchase Having cleaned up 2 litres of water from the kettle electric base and my worktop I decided to look at the comments on this kettle. Alarming to find another customer this month has had same failure. Looking back there has been others. This has a major fire/electrocution potential. I had already reported to JL and got their usual excellent customer service; lets hope the replacement is trouble free. For the dozen or so boils I did its nice product and looks good. Yes it delivers one cup can't understand why people are complaining about that in reviews. Its the design. Donald 21 October 2015
