The Breville VKJ367 Brita Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense offers boiling hot water at the touch of a button to deliver delicious hot drinks in an instant. This marks the third generation of the innovative Breville Hot Cup and builds upon past successes as Breville has teamed up with Brita, the top name in water filtering, to offer a Hot Cup with Brita filter technology.
Brita filter technology for cleaner, better tasting hot drinks
The Breville VKJ367 Brita Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense uses Brita filter technology which works as the kettle is boiling. This Brita filter uses a mixture of carbon and ion exchange resin to remove hardness, chlorine, heavy metals such as lead and copper, and other organic impurities from your water to improve its taste, smell and appearance.
The VKJ367 includes a recyclable Brita Maxtra cartridge which features a Memo display that automatically reminds you when your filter cartridge needs to be changed.
Boiling water in an instant
The Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense is designed to boil a cup of water in a matter of seconds--40 to be precise, five less than the first generation Hot Cup--meaning great hot drinks at the touch of a button. 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 Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense is economical and energy efficient. There's no boiled water going to waste and it helps you save pennies on electricity bills.
Supersize or downsize your cup with the Variable Dispense
Like your cup of tea a little on the large side? Or just looking for a small slurp of coffee to get you going in the morning? Take your pick with the Variable Dispense control. This feature allows you to choose from nine different sizes of cup, so there's no need to half-fill a large cup or overspill with a small one.
Simply select the amount of water you require with the Variable Dispense dial located on the top of the unit. Adjust the dial to your chosen setting. For smaller amounts set the dial towards the tea cup icon--the smallest available, and for larger amounts set towards the mug icon--the largest available. If unsure about which setting to use, use a lower setting until you get a better understanding of the amounts.
Manual Stop helps you take control
Providing you with further control is the Manual Stop function. This enables you to interrupt and halt progress at any stage. If you've decided you don't fancy a cuppa after all, press the button immediately to stop the boil sequence. Or even later in the cycle, press it to stop water that is being dispensed. The Manual Stop means you can pour just as much as you want and don't have to worry about overflowing.
Easy to use and easy to clean
The Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense features a fast boil 3 kilowatt (kW) concealed element which delivers maximum efficiency and keeps the water tank easy to clean. The large 1.8 litre (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 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 Filter Hot Cup with Variable Dispense a sophisticated addition to your kitchen worktop. And it continues to look good even when not in use thanks to its smart stainless steel finish.
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.

When I saw this new model with variable dispense and an inbuilt filter, I decided that it was time for the old Hot Cup to be honourably retired.
The first thing to say about the new version is that it looks great. It really does look like an expensive and well made product and its smart chrome design will grace any kitchen.
From opening the box, set up takes a few minutes. There is no need to pre-soak the Brita Maxtra cartridge, but you do need to discard the first couple of tanks of water to ensure the inside of the kettle is perfectly clean before use.
This leads me on to the first thing to bear in mind if you decide to buy this product. As the kettle contains a filter, the water needs to run from the top water container, through the filter, and into the lower reservoir. The top container only holds about 1/3rd of the water required to fill the lower chamber to the maximum. It therefore takes about five minutes to totally fill the kettle from empty. This won't be a problem as long as you remember to refill it after you use it, but could be a bit frustrating if you are dying for a cup of tea and the last person to use it left it empty. The top filter tank is removable though, so I suppose you could use the kettle without filtering the water, but that defeats the purpose of getting this model.
Once filled you have the choice of 9 different cup sizes.Read more ›
I am delighted with it, and even hubby, who was sceptical at first, has been suitably impressed.
I have very boring problems with long boring names affecting my hands so I've been in the habit of filling kettles by jug for so long I'm always surprised when other people don't! A lightweight jug is an absolute must to fill this machine - some might see that as a drawback, I don't.
It is actually much smaller than I was expecting! The footprint of the heater base *without the drip tray* is the same as my old kettle. It is somewhat taller, but doesn't take up half the worktop as I was expecting it to. Keeping the kettle alongside for cooking or making multiple cups of tea (ie more than 3) is not going to be an issue. I have used a rival make of water boiler on family visits and (sorry family!) this is quieter and produces water that is far far hotter. True it's not quite as quick, but speed wasn't really a consideration when I made my choice. I'd rather wait a few seconds for the boiling-hot water to be honest.
The mug size is perfect for our crockery, too. Reviewers who have commented that it only just fills their mugs, or doesn't fill them enough, must have huge mugs! I haven't measured the size of my biggest mug in ccs, but I have several different sizes of mug, and the largest is filled to perfection at the biggest setting. Only my tall hot choccy mugs won't fit under the tap, but they're hot choccy mugs for hot choccy so it's not an issue lol!
Did I say I'm delighted? I am. I will update in a few months' time, as I find reviews that revisit products after a decent period of use are the most helpful. But so far, it gets a big thumbs up from me. No more danger of scalds from boiling water spilling from kettles I've dropped or thrown across the kitchen.
It's a shame because the idea of the product is great; reduce energy usage by only heating as much water as you need and takes a lot less time to boil a couple of cups of water. It ought to be a winner, especially with a filter as we have exceptionally hard water here.
There are many other reviews around the web about this product having a disgusting smell/taste to the water that comes from it (which I wish I had noticed prior to buying it), so my recommendation to anyone looking for one of these products is to look for products from alternative suppliers as Breville are apparently happy to continue to provide their customers with sub-standard products in the hope that sufficient of us will not complain about the taste/smell.
Breville is not a brand I will be looking at nor trust again!
