Discover the Breville VKJ551 Stainless Steel Kettle, Colour Select, Featuring Nine Different Colours

The Breville VKJ551 polished stainless steel Colour Select jug kettle combines modern design with high performance. Plus, you get to choose the colour theme to suit your mood or kitchen.

Easy to Clean and Fast Boiling

The VKJ551 is high wattage: 3 kilowatt. Such a powerful wattage keeps boiling times short, saving you time. The kettle also has a concealed element. This makes it easier to clean and is more energy efficient than an immersed element, requiring a lower minimum water level in order to function safely.

It has a capacity of 1.5 litres and can accommodate about six to eight cups. That's ideal for families.

Enjoy Nine Vibrant Colours in One Kettle

The VKJ551 is designed with an extra-large rear water window, indicating the water level to help you fill the kettle to the desired amount. This window illuminates blue to red when boiling, making it easier to judge the correct amount and giving your kettle a sophisticated style.

But the colours don't have to stop when the kettle isn't in use. There are nine vibrant rainbow shades, plus the ever-changing Spectra, to choose from when the kettle is on standby mode, thus maintaining the stylish look.

The rainbow of colour features:

  • Grass green
  • Hot pink
  • Ice blue
  • Lime green
  • Racy red
  • Tangerine
  • True blue
  • Violet
  • White

You also get Spectra shadow, a beautiful transition of colour that occurs as the kettle reaches boiling point.

The VKJ551 kettle is fitted with a non-slip, 360° rotational base for left- and right-handed usage. Convenient cord storage helps keep your kitchen worktop fuss-free.

    This is a handsome, well-made kettle, it looks stylish and is easy to hold. It comes with approx 75cm of mains cable, excess cable can be coiled inside the base. It has a large opening for filling and the spout has a mesh filter which can be removed for washing.
    In the video I've shown how you can select one of the 9 mood colours, there is also a 10th setting that cycles through the colours with about 5 to 6 seconds between each change. The illumination switches off after about 20 minutes. When the kettle is switched on to boil water the illumination changes to blue and then gradually to red as it boils and then back to the selected mood colour as it switches off; it also makes a peeping noise as it switches off. I shortened the boiling sequence in the video but this is a fast boiling kettle. Overall a good kettle and the mood colours have certainly made it noticed in the kitchen.
    It has a 1 year guarantee.

    I have left the review for four months so I could give it a good road test. I read the reviews and was a little apprehensive but decided to go ahead anyway.
    Other reviews mentioned a strange taste at first. I can agree that this did appear to be the case, but after a few boils it has gone.
    Other reviews mentioned leaking, again I have experienced a small amount of water on the base, having experimented I found that this was down to over filling!

    Now the good. The outer case stays relatively cool, even when boiling, with small children about I cannot stress how useful that is!

    The colour change is great, apart from being pretty it gives a general visual indication of how hot the water is. It's nice and bright so can be used as a night light! It does switch off after about 20 minutes so doesn't waste energy.

    I am very pleased with it and I am glad I got it.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    On first opening this kettle I was struck by how unattractive it looks. The translucent grey plastic does not sit well with the stainless steel and it looks a lot better in the video review than it does in real life. Never mind, I thought, the colours will make a big difference. Well they would have done, had the grey plastic got full colour saturation - but it doesn't. The on switch and the Breville badge on the front show vibrant colour, but the top gets a misty hue through the grey plastic and I had to look at the instruction manual for what some of the colours were supposed to be.

    Good points

    1) a solid lid which is a press down to open and close, easy and quite helpful if you have hand difficulties which make stiffer lids hard to open.

    2) It does its job as a kettle quickly and efficiently, but when it was coming up to boil and the colour had turned a murky, patchy orange with grey overtones which was supposed to be red, it was vibrating as though it was about to take off and I was quite concerned. After several goes it appears that this happens if you put the minimum amount of water in it - enough for a cup of tea - its more stable with a full load.

    So, its hideous, but it is functional and I will keep it out of sight as a spare kettle. If two stars seems harsh its because this kettle's selling point is its attractive light display which doesn't deliver.

    I love this product. Able to remove the filter mesh easily and collects a lot of water scale.
    Colours are fun and very efficient .

    Looking at the reviews mentioning the taste of the water and the lid I was a bit unsure to buy this item.

    Having the item for a month no issues experienced at all.
    The water was perfect to drink and no taste. And the lid is all in good condition in normal use.

    The kettle lights up also after boiling what is a nice effect in the kitchen!

    I love this item and would recommend it to everybody who likes trendy items and with normal use.

    Back again to kept you know the kettle still works in excellent condition!
    I even used it a lot more having our son for his milk!

    Ones in a while I use household vinegar overnight to clean the calk inside the kettle.

    GREAT KETTLE! :)

    It's a kettle that you can change the colour on. Having previously had one similar to this, I'm a little disappointed with this one as it switches itself off after 20 mins so the colour changing cycle I used to create a mood in my kitchen is no more. This one no longer has the keepwarm function, which I found vey handy on my last Breville kettle. Also, this one doesn't seem to reach a very high temperature, or keep the water hot for long, disappointing for me. However, it looks good and boils water .
