Breville VKJ142 Hot Cup
The Breville VKJ142 Hot Cup offers boiling hot water at the touch of a button to deliver delicious hot drinks in an instant. Its patented design means you only boil one cup at a time saving time, money and energy.
NOTE: The boiling and dispensing method does create a different noise to that of a kettle.
Boiling water in an instant
The Breville Hot Cup is designed to boil a cup of water in a matter of seconds, meaning great hot drinks at the touch of a button. It dispenses a 250 ml cup of boiling water--the equivalent of a standard drinking mug--and will dispense up to five cups without refilling--perfect for families or small offices.
The innovative patented technology ensures that water is only dispensed once it has reached boiling point, not simply very warm, but 100 degrees Celsius, making perfect hot drinks every time. In addition, the smooth and continuous flow of water keeps any splashing to a minimum.
By only boiling enough water for the number of cups you need, the hot cup is economical and energy efficient. There's no boiled water going to waste and it helps you save pennies on electricity bills.
Easy to use and easy to clean
The Breville Hot Cup features a fast boil 3 kW concealed element which delivers maximum efficiency and keeps the water tank easy to clean. The 1.5 l capacity water tank is also easy to fill thanks to its lid release button. Press the button down to open and then fill the water tank with fresh, cold water just like you would a kettle.
The extra-large rear water window helps you accurately fill the water tank and once filled, you can place the it back on the base facing any angle as it's 360 degree rotational. This means you don't have to line it up in a certain place to function.
Illumination on boil gives a blue hue
When activated, the tank illuminates to give a stylish blue glow to your kitchen. This modern design makes the Hot Cup a sophisticated addition to your kitchen worktop. And it continues to look good even when not in use thanks to its gloss black finish with smart stainless steel trim.
Save on spills with the detachable drip tray
Mess is kept to a minimum as the drip tray at the base of the unit collects all stray spillages. It's easily removable for cleaning and is dishwasher safe. Also doing its bit to help keep your kitchen workspace tidy is the cord storage. This coils loose and unused cord under the base of the unit so that it's not swamping your kitchen and taking up unwanted space and the base itself is non- slip so you don't have to worry about it slipping on your work surface.

I'm surprised so many say their cups overflow, my mom uses regular sized mugs and this doesn't fill them quite enough. Once or twice a day, she'll boil a normal cup of tea, then another in a separate mug and fill up the difference so it's full, but she doesn't mind having the 3/4 cups the rest of the time. I don't know where she puts the 10+ cups of tea a day, but there we go! Saying that, this drastically cuts down the time our old kettle took, it took a good 3-5 minutes to boil, this is around 30-45 seconds.
It is rather loud as the water is coming out of the spout, however I sleep during the day (night shifts) and sleep two rooms away from the kitchen and it never wakes me up, so it's not insanely loud, definitely not the same drone as a kettle banging on or whistling for minutes. Another point is the water is definitely boiling, never used one of these before but I've heard some are just warm or hot, don't worry about that with this one.
Really, really good for the price, I did like the idea of the adjustable version for different cup sizes, however I didn't want to bother with the cost and faff of britta filters, so if you agree then this is totally for you, and it's really not a big deal and if you buy regular mugs it doesn't spill over, though maybe more people use smaller types?! Who knows. People have been really impressed with this though, my aunt saw it and brought one for herself since she liked it so much.
Disadvantages: Ergonomically it's not very good as the position you place your dispenser is the handle facing back of the wall and dispenser on the opposite side. Therefore, when reaching for the kettle it's really awkward; the solution was to position it sideways but that waste space. I think if the container can be rotatable as well as dispense hot water at the same time then this would be perfect! Much like normal kettles that are rotatable.
The other is the water dispensed can sometime not be enough, as I use a really big mug.
However, asides from the 2 issues I experienced it's a really good hot water dispenser!
if you have a larger cup it's not so good .
If you wanna use boiling water for cooking it's not so good.
If you wanna make a pot noodle etc not so good . I seem to fill it up more then my old kettle.
It is quite loud
So keep your kettle.
Me I like it husband not so much . I got it cos it was only £30 wouldn't have payed any more then that if I had I would have been very disappointed .
