Q & As

Breville VKJ385 Jug Kettle, Polished Stainless Steel 3.6 5 8 8
Great value Probably the best value kettle on offer here. I don’t find it unduly noisy, and haven’t experienced a chemical taste. Flip-up lid is good. The design is very compact and stylish. Note that the pack offers only 1 year warranty, not 2 as indicated here. There is no serial number nor facility for online registration. 20 September 2014
Well it didn't cost a fortune I bought this kettle a few weeks ago and find it to be a very ordinary kettle. It boils the water fast and looks good in our black and white kitchen. However, as others have commented in reviews the chemical smell has not yet left it. I would have expected after this time it would not be giving off odours of uncured adhesive/jointing compounds. Also it's very noisy and prevents me hearing the radio. Perhaps this is what we should expect with a completely concealed element. My old spare kettle, which was pressed into service when my previous kettle sprung a leak, was very quiet but perhaps this was due to it's exposed element. I've not yet found my ideal kettle. 05 August 2014
Kettle Purchase Basically very pleased with my first-ever metal kettle. The only feature I find slightly annoying is that the lid doesn't go back quite as far as I need to use my Britta water filter jug direct into the kettle. My previous Rowenta plastic one had a lid that sat bolt upright when open which was ideal. But oh well, you can't have it all, can you?! 02 August 2014
It leaks After about a month the kettle leaked if water was left in it - not a great trait for a kettle. 10 July 2014
Decent kettle Does all the things a kettle should do - i.e boil water! It is a bit on the noisy side, but that's not a big problem. I picked this kettle as I thought it was the most stylish compared to other kettles of a similar price. As someone else has mentioned, the water fill level is difficult to read as you fill up, but once you set the kettle down and take your hand off the handle it is clear enough. 06 July 2014
Very good basic kettle Boils water quickly but moderately noisily. Looks smart with small blue indicator light in the switch when in use. Easy to open the lid with the button in the handle. Metallic taint to the water has gone after about five days. Would get five stars but the water level indicator is too small and hidden behind the handle so it's difficult to see how much you have put in. I also suspect it will fur up in time and then be impossible to see the marks. Not good if you want to save electricity by only boiling the amount you need. 29 June 2014
Brilliant simple kettle! Excellent kettle, easy to use. Reason for buying was ease of filling as the lid is flicked open by pressing button on top of handle. 11 June 2014
Good have had this product before. Good but find it noisy but does what it is suppose to do. Good for the price 08 May 2014
