Love this kettle
So pleased with this electric kettle. It is so convenient and easy to use. Select your tea (green tea, black tea, oolong, fresh press) and push start. The water heats so quickly and it i's not very loud to me. The unit is sturdy, easy to hold with an easy pour (mesh at pour for loose tea). The easy lift lid is so smooth to open. It is wonderful. The temperature is perfect. Shuts off automatically. It's great.

Exact replacement
I wore out my previous one. Don’t remember exactly when I bought it, but more than 3 years ago. I use it multiple times every day. I will continue to replace it with the same model unless something even better comes along.

Variable temperature electric kettle
I love being able to select the water temperature that matches the best with each particular type of tea. The "keep warm" button is valuable to have. Looks great! Love it!

This tea kettle is amazing. There is a setting for all types of teas and it will keep your kettle warm for your next "cuppa". I also like that you can see how much water is left inside and its the perfect size as well.

I’d give it 10 stars!
I began using cordless kettles in 1991 when we moved to London and made it one of my first purchases when we returned to the USA ten years later. I’ve owned several makes and models and this latest Breville is superior in every way. It is heavier than those with a plastic body if that is a factor for someone.

Is the water level window still polycarbonate, or is it glass
A shopper on Dec 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The water level window is made of poly carbonate.
Are you able to add tea leaves directly into the water or in the unit via a filter, or can you only heat the water and steep the tea in something else?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This one is made just for water, but Breville does carry a tea maker you can add your leaves to directly. It's called the Breville Gourmet Tea Brewer & Variable Temperature Kettle.

Is this electric kettle made by 304 stainless steel? Thank you
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi. I looked at the entire kettle and see no reference to a grade of stainless steel, but, I must tell you, I have found this kettle to be of the highest quality. It works perfectly and is an attractive addition to my kitcen. I really like Brevile products, own several of them. I'm curious. Why are you interested in grade of stainless steel. Checking that has never occurred to me!
Is the kettle BPA free?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No plastic inside. Only metal.
Is the interior of this kettle lined with plastic or some other material? Or is it stainless steel (with the polycarbonate window)?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This a wonderful kettle! The inside is stainless steel with a lid release button on top which has a small area of polycarbonate and the dual water windows have the polycarbonate. This is a great product even my son wants one for his home!
1) Does it shut off automatically if you don't select hold? (Not sure if "safety shut off" feature is the same thing as auto shut off. )
2) Does it make any alert sound or whistle when it is ready?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In answer to your questions:
(1) Yes, it shuts off automatically if the kettle is not being used for more than 10 minutes or so which is great when I'm on the go and haven't gotten a chance to unplug it.

(2) Yes, it makes a audible, yet discreet high pitched "beep beep" sound. Pretty much every feature on this kettle is elegantly designed and well-thought out (as would be expect from the high standards that Breville company have upheld)
Does the heating element touch the water?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The heating element is in the base that the kettle sits on, so the water does not come into contact with the heating element in this product
Is it available with 220volts?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, we don't carry it in 220v.
Does the lid open easily?
A shopper on May 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. I've bought 2 of these. One for my daughter for college and one for myself. I have arthritis and if it was hard to open, it wouldn't be in my kitchen. Amazing product here. If anything should ever happen to my Breville electric kettle, I'd totally buy another one.
is there a minimum amount of water that you need to boil in this kettle? I will only make tea for one so would only want to boil 6 oz at a time.
Don C on Jun 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Don. All electric kettles have a minimum, usually around 2 cups. The Breville also has a 2 cup minimum. I don't think you'll find one that only boils 6oz at a time because they al have a safety auto shut off feature that will stop the boiling if there isn't enough water in the kettle.

It is wonderful kettle, though. I use it multiple times a day, every day, for more than a year and it looks brand new.
Is the kettle cool or warm to touch?
All lopez on Sep 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Cool to touch. We bought this after my daughter came back from the UK. She had gotten so used to using one there. Really like the variable temps for different teas. Left the lid open after using to dry out quickly in order to keep sediment from forming. Seemed to work.
Cord or cordless or both?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The cord is attached to the base, but the kettle itself is cordless - to heat the water you put cordless kettle on top of the base. Kettle is cordless when you are using water from it (to make a tea). Same "cordless idea" when you are adding water to the kettle.
How long does it take to boil a full kettle?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it boils water quickly, 2-3 minutes. I'm on my second one and it's on the fritz now. They seem to last no more than 2 years before the electronics glitch up.
How long does it take to boil 3 cups of water?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I set mine at the French press temp (200 degrees). So this morning I did exactly 3 cups, it took 3 min 50 sec to beep complete. But, the way this kettle works is in two stages. It heats the water to a higher temp than the setting very rapidly, then let's it cool down to just below the setting and then re-heats to get to the exact temp. So, this morning it took 2 min 40 sec to get to the higher temp then another 1 min 10 sec to do the exact temp
what does it made?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Quick, reliable hot water kettle. Capable of precise water temperatures for various teas. However, we just boil water at a single temperature anyway. Easy to clean. Recommended.
Is the Polycarbonate window BPA free?
A shopper on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You can't see it in the photo of the product, but on the actual kettle, it says "BPA FREE" at the top of the window.
What is the wattage of this model?
Florence on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is 1500 watts. I live anything Breville, particularly my electric kettle.
Where is this electric teapot made?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Says made in China. I love this kettle and use it many times a day!!!!!
What coffee is used?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No coffee is used in this kettle. It's simply meant to heat water.
Can the chime be made louder?
Lisa M on Apr 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not that I am aware, but my husband is hard of hearing and he can hear it without his hearing aid in. We have owned this kettle since Sept. 2017. No problems and it functions like new!
is this electric and can it be used at the table by simply taking the crafe from the base?

I now use a regular tea pot and boil my water after the tea has steeped then I use a thermos to take it to the table.. Can I use this the same way?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Get the temperature ideal for coffee or your favorite tea with the touch of a button. Five preset brewing temperatures include green tea, white tea, oolong tea, French press, and boil and black tea. The ‘hold temperature’ feature keeps water at the selected temperature for 20 minutes. A water-level indicator on each side allows easy viewing.

You can take this carafe to the table without the base, however it will not stay as hot for long as the base is what maintains the water temperature.
How accurate are the preset temperatures?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Pretty accurate. It depends what you want to do with it tho....for tea making pretty accurate
Where is it made?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is made in China.
