    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.

    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.

    I'm not going to quote times, temperatures etc as they are all already covered.
    The biggest concern I had was 'How much does the max setting actually give?'.
    I really enjoy my Tea, so much so that I have a special extra large mug that I use. I knew that I was unlikely to fill my special mug so had resigned to that fact upon purchase. I have measured the output of the large and I appears to dispense 280ml-ish just shy of 300ml which is plenty for the average mug.
    I did note however that for the first wee while, say maybe 5 days of 10+ uses, the volume dispensed on max did vary noticeably. However it has steadied at the top end and has worked perfectly for the last 3 weeks.

    After my kettle suddenly stopped working I started researching for a kettle that boiled fairly quickly and looked good. The predecessor to this model got great reviews but had some minor annoyances as reported by people in their reviews. From what I can see they have fixed all of them. I cannot fault this kettle and everyone who has seen or used it so far (1 week) have been really impressed. I would certainly recommend this kettle on looks and functionality. I work from home and have between 6 and 10 cups of coffee a day. It only boils the amount of water you set for the cup size you set. From pressing the button to removing your full cup of hot water it takes my unit 35 seconds. Well done Breville on a superb product.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I had the older version of the hotcup which I did get on well with although there were various niggles that, when I checked the reviews, lots of other people seemed to share. Breville seem to have actually registered the criticisms and addressed these problems.

    One of the main gripes with the old one was that a set amount of water was dispensed and there was no way to change this amount. the new version has a dial on top for you to select your cup size. It also has a 'Stop' button at the front so you can stop the flow of water as soon as you have enough.

    The new one has a much larger tank (2 litres) without actually taking up a larger footprint on the counter. It may look slightly chunkier due to this but I think it's well worth a bit of chunkiness for only having to fill it once a day.

    It's much quieter, a similar sort of boiling noise but you can now carry on a conversation while making a brew.

    The water seems to be the same temperature to me and dispenses in about the same amount of time. All good.

    The only reason I have dropped a star is because I am having an intermittent problem at the moment. Sometimes after I have stopped the water midflow because I only needed a little, the next time I press the bitton for a cup of tea ( and this can sometimes be the following morning) the hotcup dispenses 2 or on one occasion 3 cups of water consecutively despite the fact I have only pressed the button once. I am hoping this is a glitch that will sort itself out, time will tell. I'll keep you posted.
    Great product otherwise though. I don't miss my kettle at all.
