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 96 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Buy We have been very happy with this item. We previously had one of the originals, a more basic model. This has a much larger reservoir and it can dispense variable cup sizes and has a stop button - ideal if you forget to change the size setting dial. Altogether a very useful and "green" piece of equipment. 24 March 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by Little disapointed Didn't really like this cos the water didn't get to boiling point so the cup of tea didn't taste the same . I had to go back to my kettle & my cuppa tasted lovely . Sorry JL I have to bring it back . 02 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money Could not get rid of TCP taste from water. Wasted water multiple operation to fill a teapot. Too fiddly. Electric kettle with visual water level easier to use , 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy Brought this item after using my friends,it is a great buy,only boils water as you require & therefore you save money on electric would recommend & very useful for anyone who would have trouble with their hands in lifting a normal kettle. 16 December 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent! This kettle/hot cup has been one of the best purchases I have ever made. It is easy to use and to fill and dispenses in several measures so that you can just press the button and not have to stand over it. I have painful hands and some muscle issues, so this is better than lifting a hot kettle any day. It does only dispense one cup at a time but tht's perfect for me. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A really great product! Bought this for my husband who works at home and makes endless cups of tea for one! It's just great - boils in a minute, (yes, boils) and has now replaced our kettle completely! 28 September 2014
