A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

User Manuals for your Breville Variable Temperature Kettle


best kettle everReview by Gobind
Best kettle I've ever used. Water tastes better (a couple friends own Breville kettles, so I already knew that), and my green tea tastes better with the lower temperature available on this model. We love our Breville toaster oven, so I figured this model might be worth the extra for the features, and it totally is. Very easy to use, convenient.
(Our old kettle croaked, so we were boiling water in pots for a few months. Too slow, and sometimes forgot. So there's the price of a new saucepan. So over that.)
I love the pull ring on the Breville power cords, great to keep them in good condition with frequent unplugging.
Enjoyed placing the order by phone, BTW. Glad you employ live people. (Posted on 5/23/2013)
So far, I like itReview by Gadget lover
We drinks different beverages - coffee, tea, coco, french press - so this is a great product for us. The only thing we don't like is the high pitched noise the kettle makes when you start it and first put place the pot after filling it. This drives our dog crazy.

Love ThisReview by Tammy
I saw this at a tea tasting and thought I might like the features. In the past I have had to buy a new electric tea kettle every year as they wear out(one was even a respected brand name). But I have had this one almost 2 years now and it works like new and looks like new. I use it every day and so does my husband. I bought my first one for my office and I liked it so much I bought another one for home. I am a tea drinker myself, but the guy in the office next to me asks to use it for his French Press. I will never go back to the old type of electric kettle again.
