4.0 out of 5 stars Very sensible in a one or two person household, 19 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breville VKJ318 Hot Cup with Variable Dispenser, Black (Kitchen & Home)
I did the same as most - read the reviews, decided to steer clear of tefal unit (although bought a tefal toast&egg :)) , and was pleased to find this one which answers the criticisms of the last breville unit - namely 2 litre tank now, variable output volume now, and a 'stop' button.

Always makes me smile when folks measure things - so I thought I'd give you smile too :-)
- Variable output is 150ml - 250 ml.
- temperature (according to digital meat thermometer) into a warm cup is about 84-85 deg C
(for comparison temperature into a warm cup from a traditional electric kettle is 88-89 deg C)

I like it - does what it says on the tin, quickly, looks good, not much noiser than a trad. electric kettle IMO

Thank you, I was looking everywhere for some measurable spoecifications on this. Unfortunately, our favourite John Lewis Mugs need 350ml of water and so despite all the great improvements, the spec is just not right for me. This is a shame as it wouldn't take much research on the part of Breville to find out what size cups and mugs the nation use!

Yes, what about people who use kettles for making instant custard etc?
Variable should mean from nothing to at least a pint.

Thanks for your measurements, realy made me smille. I know what you mean about people measuring things; one of my favourite stories is off my mam, she used to sell washers (etc) one day someone came in to complain that a specific cycle on his washer was actually quicker than what was stated in the leaflet, think my mam's reply was along the lines 'and you're complaint is?'.
Truthfully, thank though, you have def made up my mind ;)

Thank you for the specifics re volume and temperature - extremely useful - I agree with Mr Brian, would be nice if it went up to at least a pint for custard, gravy, teapot etc. 250 ml is not enough for large mugs either as K Rayment already said.
