The Breville VKJ366 black and polished stainless steel jug kettle combines modern design with high performance. It is high wattage--3 kilowatt (kW)--keeping the boiling time short to save you time and has a concealed element. This makes it easier to clean and more energy efficient than an immersed element, requiring a lower minimum water level in order to function safely. It has a capacity of 1.7 litres (l) and so can accommodate about six to eight cups--ideal for families. The VKJ366 is designed with dual water windows indicating water level to help you fill the kettle to the desired amount. And these windows illuminate blue to red when boiling, making it easier to judge the correct amount and giving your kettle a sophisticated style.
The VKJ366 also features an innovative Still Warm function which ensures the brightly-coloured illumination continues after boiling until the temperature of the water drops below 80 degree Celsius. Once the temperature falls below 80 degrees Celsius it is no longer suitable for using in hot drinks or for cooking purposes, however kettles are frequently and unnecessarily re-boiled before dropping to 80 using energy and wasting pennies. It can take up to 20 minutes for this drop to occur, plenty of time to grab a second cuppa, and yet it's all-to-easy to casually flick the 'On' switch and boil for a second time.
This clever feature quickly alerts you to the status of the kettle's temperature so you can tell whether it requires further boiling or if it's still hot enough to stretch for another round. This innovative design is both money-saving and eco-friendly, while the illumination packs function and finesse.
The kettle is fitted with a non-slip, 360° rotational base for left and right-handed usage and cord storage to keep your kitchen worktop fuss-free.
