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 154 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Brilliant little piece of kitchen equipment I purchased one of these Hot Cups a couple of weeks ago not knowing what to expect, I was in fact a bit dubious as to its efficiency, well I needn't have been, it is absolutely marvellous. The only thing I would say against it is you would need a kettle to make a decent brew if there were a lot of people to provide for. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant product does exactly as advertised. Bought for my 94 year old Mother ,she had a job lifting up her previous kettle. This one is great and has been an excellent buy. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant It's exactly what I wanted - a water heater which boiled the water, so hot enough for tea. The fact that it only boils one cup at a time makes it very cheap to run, and if you want two cups, the second one is ready by the time the first has brewed. Great that it dispenses the water when boiled straight into the cup, so eliminates the times you put the kettle on, then do something else and have to re-boil it. Also very easy to use if you have weak arms/hands as you don't need to lift anything - just fill it up with a jug or something, rather than take it to the tap. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful product It is one of the best kitchen items that I have bought. I used to waste water and electric all the time just to make a cup of tea as I always over filled my kettle, this just boils the amount I need with different setting for size of cup or mug. LOVE IT 02 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to use Bought this product but the Max and Min markings are only on one side, but shown as both sides on the item shown in the advert. So where we want to place it on the kitchen surface, we have to have it facing one way only. It also splashes quite a lot when filling a cup or short mug. If you had a tall mug it would probably be better. My sister in law has one (that's what made us want one as it seemed quite useful as there are only two of us) but hers doesn't splash out and it has the Min and Max markings on both sides. Perhaps our was a 'throw back'. Who knows! 02 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Greville One Cup I have used one of these for some years so this was just a replacement. I love it as I have the use of one hand only & it prevents any accidents involving boiling hot water. Really good news! 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitchen necessity I bought this for eldest daughter for Christmas. She loves it. I have had one for years. Certainly recommended 29 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very handy. Personally had a 'Hot Cup' for over a year and my daughter in law ask for one for Christmas. She loves it. 27 January 2016
