I bought this kettle a month ago now, and so far it's doing exactly what it's supposed to! I have read the reviews that say they pack up and stop working, but the good ones outweighed the bad, so I decided to go ahead and purchase.
I love it!! It's so easy to use, and stops the others that live with me filling the kettle to the brim, and boiling it every time they want a cup full. I even use it for cooking - ok, so I boil it a couple of times, but it's quicker than filling from the tap and doing it that way.
The blue light is great, especially at night, as I sometimes get up in the night to make a drink and don't want to put the harsh overhead light on. I put the cup under the spout, put the kettle on, and with enough light to see by, I've got enough time to put the teabag and sugar in the cup.
If you make lots of cups of tea every time you boil the kettle, then this probably isn't for you, but if, like me you only make one cup a lot of the time, with the occasional two or three cups, then this is a brilliant idea.
I would think it's also ideal for people who have trouble lifting a normal kettle. I don't lift the hot cup off the base to fill it - I have a plastic jug which I use, it's so much easier.
Contrary to one of the reviews on here, it doesn't boil the whole lot of water every time (no idea where that notion came from!!) the reservoir does get a bit warm if you make two or three cups in a row, as some of the hot water gets pushed back into the reservoir when it resets itself, but it only actually boils the one cup at a time.
As for the plastic taste people have mentioned...yes, we did notice it when we first used it, but it soon went, and now we can't taste it....it's not us getting used to it either, as guests don't notice any difference.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
OK, so I had the Tefal Quick cup when it first came out and it was good, but the water didn't really stay hot for long.

Then along comes the Breville Hot Cup and everything changes.

The Breville Hot Cup is quite a compact piece of kitchen kit, taking up no more space than my old kettle. The Hot Cup has a detachable drip tray (excellent for me because I have tall cups), a removal tank (with handle on the back for easy holding)and a large opening in top when you open the lid (but for some reason they have put other parts of the tank in there so you can get splash back if you fill it too quickly), also meant to say you get a separate base which is the size of my kettles old base unit.

Set up was a doddle. The only thing you have to put together is the tank onto the base and then the drip dray on the base if you are going to use it.

I filled the Hot Cup with water and set it to the smallest cup size with the easy to use revolving cup sizer, not wanting it to spill over. As soon as you press the boil button (the black button on the picture and when you do the tank lights up Breville Blue, you hear the traditional sound of a kettle boiling, and then seconds after that the water emerges steaming hot. It also has a stop button so you can press that if it looks as if the cup is going to overflow. It took 22 seconds from pressing the button to water appearing then even on the largest cup size the whole thing was over in 30 seconds.

Now having used the Quick Cup in the past I was a bit doubtful over the water temperature, so after using the machine for a few times (to get rid of the new smell and anything trapped inside) I went to smell the water it had just dispensed.

Length: 0:52 Mins
This is the update of the excellent original Hot Cup; bigger tank, larger filling aperture, variable amounts and the ability to stop the flow; it's also hot enough water to make tea and lights up in a funky blue colour! We love it!
Additional cable is stored in the base if you need it.
The video shows the large filling aperture; the original Hot Cup only had a small aperture and was a bit fiddly to fill. The next piece shows the variable quantity dial and then the time taken to boil enough to fill a large mug, although I stop the flow part-way through by pressing the STOP button. You can make tea in a tea-pot but you need to choose the right tea-pot to get the water flow in to it.

Had this kettle for over a month and now i wonder how I would ever live without it!!! Paid a lot more for it than is available on Amanzon :-(
What i would have like to read in a review.....
Boils one cup of water in around 35 seconds.
If you want another cup, just press the button again.
Easy to fill, ideal if you have weak hands or for the elderly.
Water temperature is not as hot as a kettle, probably around 95c rather than 100c but trust me (And I Love my tea and am VERY, VERY fussy)it makes a great cup of Tea. Even with cheap Tea Bags. To hot to drink straight away, you have to let cool.
Has varible dispense control that is simple to use, so with small cups you just turn it down.
Has STOP button, so if cup is filling up to much large stop button on top stops water instantly.
With very large cups you just turn it down to small cup size and press boil twice.
Its not anymore noisy than a 'normal' kettle.
No more chalky water has to be the best bit, as it leaves no sediment and water always tastes fresh.
Easy to clean.
Dont buy the cheaper non varible model unless all your cups are the same size and 250ml
Have still kept old kettle, that i now use juse for cooking and hot water botles, but it is out of site and only comes out on pasta nights or cold winter evenings.
Saves money on electric only boiling the water you need.
As a test, I boiled my exsting 3kw kettle to make 5 cups of tea, making the way i normally would took 6 mins.15 secs and still had water in kettle that i had boiled and didnt need, with Hotcup it took 4.07 and no additional water boiled. I know its a bit obsessive timimg it, but now i know for every 5 cups of tea i make, im saving 2 mins of electric, so in my house thats around 40mins of electrity a day!
