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 91 91
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
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
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
Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup Does exactly what it says on the box. Makes a lovely cup of tea and hot drinks. Very convenient, wish I had bought one sooner. 09 September 2014
Breville Hot Cup This appliance offers convenience and works relatively well. However, the water rarely reaches an actual boil - and for those of us who are tea aficionados, this is essential. I am currently deciding whether to return it. 27 August 2014
Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup Excellent product, just what we hoped it would be, find it very useful, would highly recommend 19 August 2014
Leaky unreliable bag of spanners that is driving me insane Bought this earlier in the year and after about a week I was not happy. It leaks like an unfingered Dutch dam, from some mysterious hole that I cannot trace. It also likes to switch itself off, normally waiting until you have got to the furthest point of the kitchen from its location before it does so. I've yet to find the eyes that it uses to do this. When it works, it's great. And I really tried to persist with it because of this. But the constant daily mop-ups; and re-pressing of the button several times to get one cup of hot water, is now driving me wild, and I predict that shortly I'm going to be kicking it up and down the road. Breville, I won't be buying one of your shoddy products again. 14 August 2014
Good but things to consider When my kettle broke I decided to buy this becuase predominantly I only boiled the kettle for one cup so this seemed ideal. My old kettle boiled for ages before clicking off spmething I hadn`t really thought about until I started using the Hot Cup. The water boils with the Hot Cup but drinks aren`t as hot as with a kettle. They don`t stay hot in the cup for as long either. However once you get used to not leaving your cuppa too long before drinking it it`s very good. I would reccommend it, it`s very easy to use, looks good, boils quickly and isn`t too noisy. Adjusting the amount of water is very good too. 11 August 2014
