Customer Review

on 24 February 2009
I too have Quick-Cup and the Breville is a kettle with a hidden chamber for One Mug boil it takes a few seconds slower than the Quick Cup to dispense and the noise is perhaps quieter. It`s much better styled though it has a ridiculously narrow filling aperture best solved by filing with a jug with flexible "ant-eater" nozzle to get in there. If you have a Water Gem filter installed already, you can fill from the tap that comes with the kit , but filling direct from the cold water tap in hard water areas is not recommended, though it is in the instructions! Also should there come a time, (& there will) that you switch on and it`s empty of water, a quicker way out is to lift the gadget off the base!

Unlike the quick cup it doesn`t have a descale warning light THAT is a feature of their more expensive Gourmet Single K-Cup Coffee maker which appears only available in America and Australia that more expensive model also has variable cup quantity control the measure from the Hot Cup is a mug so should read Hot Mug. It has a drip tray which is a nice touch and providing you like mugs the resulting drink is a fuller more rounded taste than that delivered by the quick-cup. The Quick-Cup is not at all easy to descale and I`m hoping that the Breville will not be so hard in this area.

A few people have remarked on a plastic taste when new but this is down to newness and soon wears off I bought from Joe`s Electricals and order was promptly dispatched and excellently packed.

It does what it says on the box, saves you money and the planet, what more do you want?
