  1. Miss R. Barter

    Could not live with­out! Still going strong after 5 years!I pur­chased this in Dec 2015 so its tried and test­ed. I love this hot water dis­penser and would not be with­out it now.Even when mak­ing 4 cups of tea its still quick­er to pop your cup under, wait for the water to pour 4 times then boil the nor­mal ket­tle once.I love the added bonus of not hav­ing to pick up a heavy ket­tle full of boil­ing water.This hot water dis­penser, dis­pens­es 250ml of boil­ing hot water in around 30–35 seconds.It does not have a vari­able dis­pense rate but the more expen­sive ones do.After hav­ing for near­ly 2 and a half years i would not hes­i­tate to get anoth­er one and can­not rec­om­mend a bet­ter product.Update May 2021 — This ket­tle is now near­ly 5 and a half years old and I have def­i­nite­ly have got my monies worth.It makes on aver­age 35 — 40 cups of tea a day (for us, we love tea!) and is still going very strong.One thing I will say is late last year it start­ed leak­ing a lit­tle where the water dis­play shows (right along the edge where it meets the black plas­tic) but a lit­tle bit of super­glue did the trick and nev­er had an issue since.I will def­i­nite­ly invest in anoth­er one once this one goes. Ive nev­er had to descale as there is no water sit­ting on an ele­ment. It real­lyx­is a per­fect ket­tle. For any­one look­ing for one of these I would not hes­i­tate to buy this one.

    Buy­er the larg­er ver­sion instead!I bought this for my elder­ly grandad as I have the larg­er ver­sion & have been very hap­py with it — but I have to say this small­er ver­sion isn’t so good com­pared to mine- you can not adjust the amount of water that is dis­pensed so only an aver­age sized mug will do & if you use a small­er cup — you can­not stop the water at any point — so it will over­flow the cup — where as with mine you can adjust for the size of mug/cup & you can actu­al­ly stop the flow of water with the touch of a button.Also when you fill it back up — the lid doesn’t clip back nice­ly into place — you have to actu­al­ly push the lid down whilst hold­ing the but­ton you used to open it!!Overall a poor design com­pared to the larg­er more expen­sive Bre­ville one cup dispenser.Wouldn’t buy again.

  3. Mrs. A. Cherrington

    Read this before you buy!I knew as soon as I used this item for the first time that it was going back. Like oth­er peo­ple have said the water por­tion it deliv­ers is way too big for my mugs which are dif­fer­ent makes and all aver­age size. You can’t press a but­ton to stop the flow either so this means when you press the but­ton to fill you have to stand and wait while it heats up and then when it spits the water out (mak­ing a right rack­et while doing so) you have to lift the mug out of the way when you get enough water and let the rest of the water fall into the spill tray below.This makes it the total oppo­site of a time saver, when a nor­mal ket­tle boils I do not have to stand there and wait, I can do oth­er things, this thing you have to guard it and then risk splash­ing hot water and cof­fee every­where while you try and make your drink the right size, then you have to emp­ty the over­flow tray all the time as well. Total­ly pointless!On top of this the water con­tain­er itself is way too small, I got maybe 3–4 mugs out of it, and it’s REALLY awk­ward to fill up from the tap because the open­ing is too small and the flap gets in the way.Just a total­ly awk­ward design and not what I was hop­ing for at all. I’m going back to to a reg­u­lar ket­tle now.

  4. Fozzy

    Absolute­ly Bril­liant!We pur­chased this as an alter­na­tive to the usu­al nor­mal ket­tle which I’m sure we all have. I’m dis­abled and I can’t use my hands prop­er­ly so I need­ed some­thing that would be eas­i­er to use so I didn’t have to strug­gle to lift the ket­tle and inad­ver­tent­ly scold myself.For the price this is absolute­ly bril­liant, prac­ti­cal­i­ty this is bril­liant but for func­tion­al­i­ty it’s not quite there. I say this because if you’re like me and have a slight­ly larg­er mug than a ‘nor­mal’ mug (because you love your cof­fee — or tea, I don’t dis­crim­i­nate) when you come to fill your mug up with hot water it will dis­pense what is classed as a nor­mal amount of water to fill a mug. For me this then leaves a fair bit of the mug unfilled and by press­ing the ‘on’ but­ton again it will mean anoth­er cup full of water will be dis­pensed. My wife would con­sid­er this water to be very hot, but because I appar­ent­ly have an ‘asbestos mouth’ I need to heat this up again in the microwave to reach the tem­per­a­ture that I like my drinks at,I think this machine could have been slight­ly mod­i­fied to allow the user to dis­pense the water for as long as the user need­ed. Oth­er­wise it’s a mat­ter of turn­ing the machine off to get the water to stop (which doesn’t always work).But I do like this machine, despite this one tiny issue, and I def­i­nite­ly would rec­om­mend it to every­one because for the price it is ‘absolute­ly brilliant’.

    Best Boil­ing NewsI love this thing. I’m test­ing it out before giv­ing it to my 94 year old moth­er for her birth­day. True, I had my doubts but as she cur­rent­ly uses what is no more than a Hotel ket­tle to brew a cup and she still has to pour boil­ing water into a cup or mug I worry.I’ve test dri­ven it for a week before her birth­day and it’s so sim­ple and safe to use (and eco­nom­i­cal as it mea­sures a 250ml cup vol­ume) my push but­ton Mum will love it.If 250 ml is too much the over­flow tray is big enough to take spillage (or over­flow if you know what I mean…oops).If the water reser­voir runs dry it cuts off.The water is hot and good for a tea or cof­fee brew (or Bovril. Hor­licks etc. if you’re so inclined).I like it so much I’m going to buy one for myself to replace my age­ing Cuisi­nart Ket­tle (which cost 150% more 4 years ago)

  6. L. E. Kanellis

    The most appalling inven­tion since the cre­ation of head­lice.Gah! Don’t buy one of these!In prin­ci­ple it sounds won­der­ful and I was suck­ered by all the pos­i­tive reviews. BUT. It’s only great if you’re a her­mit who drinks small cups of tea, or if your taste buds are unre­fined enough not to mind the taste of reboiled water.Fancy a cup of tea? Not a prob­lem. Press the but­ton and your water comes into your cup automatically.Need to make anoth­er cup for your friend? Not a prob­lem. Press the but­ton again AND WAIT FOR THE WATER TO REBOIL FOR ANOTHER THIRTY SECONDS DESPITE HAVING BOILED AN INSTANT AGO.Need hot water for a pan? Not a prob­lem. Stand there like a lemon and reboil the flip­ping ket­tle eleven­ty mil­lion times until you have enough hot water.GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Don’t buy it! Don’t buy it! It’s a pain in the bum!!!!!!!!! We end­ed up buy­ing anoth­er (nor­mal!!) ket­tle after three days. Be warned.

  7. CraftyTeacher

    Yeah! No more try­ing to lift a ket­tle…An easy to use piece of kit that means that you are not lift­ing a hot ket­tle when your wrists are not great.Also, you are only hear­ing 250ml of water at a time — per­fect for a decent cup­pa (I am of the earl grey, hot persuasion!).Downsides are that it dis­pens­es 250ml which is annoy­ing if you are try­ing to make instant porridge!On the pos­i­tives again, only heat­ing 250ml at a time means fresh­ly boiled water each time and you are only heat­ing that amount, so no waste of elec­tric­i­ty M

    We’ve had this now for few weeks… …We’ve had this now for few weeks… it works per­fect­ly. Be aware that it only boils a 1 stan­dard size mug full, so if you’re want­i­ng a tea cup mea­sure it’s like­ly to over­flow (but just fill a mug or jug and then pour it into your cup ;)). We’ve also found it accom­mo­dates our 2 x cof­fee cup cafetiere.

    … can i not say about the hot cup i love it makes my cof­fee in sec­onds with just enough …what can i not say about the hot cup i love it makes my cof­fee in sec­onds with just enough hot water i have very swollen hands and i cant lift a nor­mal ket­tle with­out pain so i fill my hot cup with a jug why i nev­er brought one years ago i don’t know but i will be get­ting anoth­er for my bed­room table its fab i get 6 mugs of cof­fee out of a full tank with enough space in the mug so you don’t spill any­thing as you car­ry your mug away ive rec­om­mend­ed this to friends and fam­i­ly its that good water temp is great too

    Sad­ly this did not meet expec­ta­tions.I had bought a pre­vi­ous Bre­ville water heater that dis­pensed a cup of hot water in 2019.It worked very effi­cient­ly and did a good job with­out splat­ter­ing hot water all over the place and with­out mak­ing enough noise to wake my neighbour!I saw this new­er mod­el on Ama­zon Ware­house and fool­ish­ly thought it would be some­what of an upgrade as mine was 2 years old and as I live in a hard water area it was show­ing signs of limescale etc.How wrong I was — this new­er and some­what big­ger mod­el failed on every count as a replace­ment plus the splat­ter­ing hot water was quite con­cern­ing and the boil­ing noise final­ly got on my nerves enough to war­rant a call to Ama­zon to request a return.Amazon Prime real­ly does do ‘what it says on the tin’ and the cus­tomer ser­vice agent I spoke to could not have been more help­ful. Prob­lem solved by way of a refund and I am back to using my old­er Bre­ville water heater.Newer does not always mean bet­ter — or so it seems.Thank you for your time in read­ing my feedback/review – I hope it may have helped you in your buy­ing decision.If this feedback/review has helped in any way please be kind enough to click on ‘Help­ful’.
