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


Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup 4.4 5 83 83
Time Saving & Economical Solution We first used one of these in our offices and were so impressed we have replaced the kettle at home with another. For every day use they make quick efficient hot drinks and have an adjustment for cup size. They look modern and at home in a contemporary kitchen and use less power than a conventional kettle as your only boiling the water you need. Very happy with our purchase 10 June 2014
Time saver The hot cup is great time and energy saving device that makes a great brew 03 June 2014
quick but very hot It good for making one cup of tea . Looks good and works well. however it does seem to be using a lot of water very quickly and makes my tea very hot so it tAkes some time before I can actually drink the tea. Other than that its very good 29 May 2014
Does everything it says it will Very happy with this product with just two suggestions for improvement: 1. the control for adjusting the amount of water dispensed is fiddly, fine adjustment is lacking and it will be difficult to use for those with dexterity issues. 2. instructions on how to descale the appliance are vague both on the signs to look for to show it needs to be descaled and the amounts and dilution to use when doing this with vinegar in water. 22 May 2014
Breville Hot Cup A brilliant piece of kit. A money saving device & much quicker than a standard kettle.Well worth the money. 20 May 2014
Breville Hot Cup I have had this Hot Cup for a few weeks now. It is really good, as I do not drink a lot of hot drinks. This is much easier to use when only one cup is needed. I also use it when I need boiling water for something I am cooking or soaking a saucepan that need boiling water. I also find it helpful not to have to lift the whole thing to fill it up. I use a jug to fill it . I would still use a kettle if I was having more than 3 people who were wanting a cup of tea , or as a reserve. 29 April 2014
Broke within 48 hours This Hot Cup was a big disappointment. It started leaking within 48 hours of using it. The leak was from the bottom near the electrical charger. Its lovely to look at but poorly built. I returned it for a full refund. 29 April 2014
Perfect This product is the second we have bought first for our holiday home which proved to be so good and cost effective we bought another for our home. It is simple to use, easy to fill and makes the perfect cup of coffee in a very short time. Perfect when you can't wait for that first cup of the day. The item is environmentally friendly because you are not wasting water or constantly boiling the same water over and over until the kettle is empty, hence the economical comment. Perfect in every way I would never go back to using a kettle, love the one cup. 19 April 2014
