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 163 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic buy! Was sceptical about this product but it has proved itself to be invaluable. Delivers just the amount of water required with no waiting about for kettles to boil and no wasted energy. I have used bottled water to fill it as live in a hard water area and this protectsthe machine from limescale build up. Would certainly recommend this product. 25 May 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by material design fault I am about to return the second unit to J Lewis within the original 2 year guarantee, as it is showing the same fault of rusting around the "stainless steel" lid. Not very nice. it also has an annoying habit of giving more or less water at any given setting depending how much water is in the reservoir! 25 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Cup really good and great to have the variable cup size. 21 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by First class product Ideal for a single person. It takes about 45 seconds per cup. 19 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes life easier This has proved to be really helpful as I have arthritic and shaky hands. I also have difficulty in handling a normal kettle, sometimes finding it too heavy. The 'Hot Cup' takes care of this, providing me with just one cup of hot tea or coffee. 05 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by DANGEROUS! DO NOT BUY! We had one of these Breville Hot Cup water dispenser’s that lasted just over two years and it eventually furred-up delivering insufficient amounts to fill a mug and it had been slightly leaking for some time. Nonetheless it was so useful that we decided to throw it away and buy a new one. What a disaster! After one week the new one suddenly dumped an entire tankful of water all over the work surface - just as many others have described in the reviews. It is obvious that Breville have produced an entire run of these dispensers that are not only faulty but inherently dangerous as they leak all over the electrical base plate. I will now be asking JL to provide us with a refund and we will have to search for a new similar product. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD BE WITHDRAWN FROM SALE IMMEDIATELY! 18 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic kettle I used to have to labour away filling up the kettle and boiling too much water every time I wanted a good cup of Yorkshire tea. Now, thanks to this nifty little thing, I can boil and brew with Panache. The ability for us to vary the amount of water that comes out is such a plus, as often as not Mrs P wants to fill her oversized Denby mug right to the top, whilst I'm happy with what you could probably call a liquid amuse-bouche.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it This is my second one. Makes just the right size cup. I don't have to stand around waiting. Fab. 15 March 2016
