Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We are much more impressed with the hotcup than we expected to be. I couldn't really see a need for it before it came but now I barely use my kettle at all as it's so much quicker and easier to use the hotcup.
It's very nice to look at and smaller than the average kettle. You fill it just like a kettle by lifting it off the base and popping up the lid. It hold 5 X 250ml "shots" of water.
It stays turned off until you need it, then you put a cup under the spout and press the button on top and it starts to boil a shot of water. It's fairly loud right at the end when it's dispensing the water and a bit sputtering but you have a cupful of boiling water in 50 seconds. I use the time that it's boiling to be ready and waiting with my milk and spoon and it really is a quick cup of tea.
When reading other reviews I saw mention of a plasticky taste but I haven't noticed any difference in taste to tea made in my kettle.
I think we get on with it well particularly as we have fairly large mugs so the shot of water either fits v well or underfills. I've had no case of it overflowing although I can see that this would be a problem for some people and the lack of control is a downside. I also wish it would have levels on the side illustrating how many cups of water are left in the tank.
It won't replace our kettle completely as I still use larger amounts of boiling water for cooking but it has been used for every cup of tea since we've had it.
All in all,we are really impressed with the hotcup and it has speedily become a well-used appliance in our kitchen. Only problem is how much tea I am getting through since it has arrived.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This product is excellent. It won't replace a kettle because when friends are around you'll need the ability to make multiple hot drinks simultaneously, which this won't do, but for energy conscious individuals who only wish to heat enough water to make one drink at a time... this is excellent.

The product is simple and the process is simple; fill the reservoir with water (which has enough capacity for 5 mugs), flick the switch, and 35 seconds later... it produces one steaming hot mug of water...

...or bowl / jug / whatever you place under the spout... but... I wouldn't recommend placing a cup or anything else small; the unit produces 250ml of scalding hot water (which is appropriate for a standard sized mug) each time, no more, and no less. Consequently, if you use a cup, the chances are you'll have to deal with the overspill but fortunately Breville included a 'beer pump style' drip tray that should cover this.

For me it's brilliant: I put the coffee in the mug, place it under the spout, flick the switch and carry on about my business, when I come back not only is the water hot, my mug's also poured (and in this respect it reminds me of the old 'Teasmaid' units there used to be, the only difference being this one starts manually, not via a timer).

I already use a thermal kettle which keeps my unused boiled water hot, and do so for the sake of reducing my energy consumption, but I like this product because I only boil the amount of water I need to at the time I need to use it.

I have only two quibbles: the opening to pour water in could be a little wider to allow easier topping up; it's narrow and oddly angled.

Having bought the tefal quick cup a few months earlier and finding it is not hot enough for a cup of tea of for someone who likes very hot drinks, i bought the Breville Hot Cup.

It is really good - although takes longer than the tefal to heat up - but it is boiling water, and ideal for the cups of tea etc that need boiling water.

The only critism is that there is no flow regulator, you cant press the button to stop flow, it has a set amount. this was resulting in overflowing mugs (after milk had been added) - so the ingenious way around it, is that we now have a small jug placed under the nozzle at all times, and the water dispenses into that and we pour what we need into the cup.

Very quick, very easy and very useful.
we now have both units side by side, so for different drinks, people etc have the choice!!!

Verified Purchase
I`ve had this for quite some time now, the model which puts out 250mls of near boiling water....

I went for this model at the time over it`s competitor which apparently didn`t make the water as hot.

Quite simply, for my daily tea & coffee making needs this has all but replaced my normal kettle (which I have obviously kept for larger boils)

This is super and gets used all day long here.....literally.

I noticed that it can take a few seconds longer to "boil" when the water is ice cold out of the tap in the winter, but it`s still very quick compared to a kettle that isn`t even full.

I`ve had it over a year now, and if I had to replace it I would like the next version up which allows you to eject variable amounts, and a slightly larger water holding tank would be nice, but I am not sorry I bought this at all.

Definitely 5 stars for me - my best Xmas present to myself...which was 2009 and it`s still working just fine.
