Product Description

Product Description

The Breville VKJ535 lime green and stainless steel traditional kettle combines classic 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 VKJ535 is designed with a rear water gauge indicating water level to help you fill the kettle to the desired amount. The unusual and eye-catching lime green finish and traditional shape give your kettle a sophisticated style. This is complemented by the stainless steel accents and base, while the switch illuminates blue on boiling adding to the smart effect. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars High end kettle, beautiful design 23 July 2011
By JM TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length: 1:04 Mins
The box that it ships in is gigantic! There's a normal sized Breville box, inside a very large brown Amazon.co.uk box, with lots of brown paper padding. I suppose the packaging is protective, and necessary. (It's all recyclable). I was surprised by how light the box felt.

The kettle itself looks beautiful; the design is also very functional. I love that the handle doesn't get hot, or very warm, even. It does a remarkable job of heat insulation - far better than any kettle that I have seen.

(I'm comparing it to a swanky Siemens Porsche kettle, that I've used in the home of a wealthy acquaintance - that looked good, but was not very functional)

The handle is a great size and shape; pouring is very easy. (I can be little clumsy so this is a very welcome feature).

I love that you don't have to keep unplugging and replugging the power cord; you just rest it on the base, at any angle.

The sound that it makes when boiling is very relaxing/soothing, to me.

The bottom line: It looks classy, is highly functional. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what a kettle should do 25 July 2011
By Mark Loughridge VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Positive points about this kettle:
- It pours beautifully - not a trickle, not a flood, no drips!
- It is relatively quiet
- 360 degree base unit makes it easy to replace the kettle on the base from any angle
- The lid is firm enough not to fall off, but not so stiff as to make it inconvenient
- A retractable electric cord which can be anything from 23cm to 70cm and is shortened by winding the cord round under the base (hidden from sight).

Things I would change:
- The limitations of the see-through guage (starts at 4 cups while the 'minimum' volume is 1 cup)
- The spout is wide enough to fill the kettle through it which makes that very tempting, although the instructions say not to fill it this way (no explanation why not).

Other observations:
- The element is concealed
- A blue light in the on/off switch glows when the kettle is on.
- A full kettle (1.7 litres) boils from cold in 3 mins 50 seconds
- Comfortable handle, which doesn't get hot.
- Colour is similar to Dulux's Luscious Lime - if that's your thing!

Other than waiting to see how long it lasts before burning out, I'm really happy with this kettle.

3.0 out of 5 stars A few niggles with this kettle 24 July 2011
By Kindle Customer VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
All kettles really need to do is boil water, and this one boils water as well as any other kettle. This kettle though would probably appeal to someone who wants a bit more than the usual standard white plastic version. It's very stylish with sleek lines and fashionable eye popping colours. I have the green one and it matches in very well with other green accessories from different manufacturers. If you want lime green - this one will be the right colour. However it does have a few niggling problems. Firstly the instructions tell you not to fill the kettle through the spout, but the lid is small and difficult to remove and put back. It's fiddly and does not click back in place easily. The second problem with this kettle is that although it will boil one cup of water, and the instructions recommend only boiling the amount you need, the water gauge only starts at 4 cups, and then does not register unless you give the kettle a bit of a shake. These are not big problems, but they will niggle every time I fill up my kettle.

The button is soft but sturdy, the lid comes off without effort (something that is important when there's virtually no leverage space beneath the handle) and the design is stylish. I'm not too keen on top-handle kettles as it can be a hassle getting a tap angled underneath, but it's so far not a problem with this one. But the color...ugh! Who would want that? It reminds me of the Metallic-Pea station wagon from the original Vacation movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars 14 months and now faulty 5 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
This was a lovely kettle while it lasted - the colour fantastic, water boiled very speedily, easy to handle. However, just 2 months out of warranty, the kettle started acting up and now will randomly switch off, and, even more scarily, randomly switch on again. Disappointing.
