    Quality - But Why the Beeps?

    Purchased this to replace a competitor's temperature controlled tea kettle that had broken. It is a quality product. Pro's: - can set temperature - solidly built - heats water fast & quietly Only One Con: Why does it beep so much? It beeps when the water is hot -- that's good. But what's the point of beeping when . . . - the kettle is lifted off the base. (I know that; it's in my hand) - the kettle is put back on the base. (Again, it's in my hand) - change the water temp setting. (There's a visual light to tell me that) - start the kettle. (Again, the light changes color to tell me that) The beeps are moderately loud, so if you are using this in a quiet setting it may be annoying. Breville should at least allow one to turn off the beeps.

    Terrific kettle for tea lovers

    I've had this Breville kettle for about a month now, and I am extremely happy with the purchase. It boils water very quickly and the temperature settings are a great convenience, as I love green and white tea and my husband only drinks black. I set the temperature for green, pour water for my tea, then put the pot back and set it for black. A few seconds later it's ready. My only complaint is that it beeps too often, as every time you remove it from the base or put it back, it lets you know! A beep when it reaches the set temperature would be enough. But that is a minor distraction and I hardly notice it anymore. All in all, a great kettle that I highly recommend. I only hope it lasts forever!

    Great for 7 cups of tea

    I wanted an electric kettle with variable temperatures because sometimes I like green tea (lower temp) and sometimes I like black tea (higher temp). This kettle holds 7 cups and keeps your water around the desired temperature for 20 minutes at the press of a button. The plug is also easy to remove because its design lets you put a finger in the middle of it. It's a pretty cool design. I 've stopped using the microwave for tea when I work from home.

    The purpose of a kettle is to heat water, and this kettle does it quickly. I use the hot water for brewing loose tea and am glad that this unit has the ability to select different water temperatures for green and black teas (as well as other types). My wife is happy that the old whistling stove-top kettle is gone, replaced by gentle beep when the water is fully hot. The fill window is easy to read. So far, no odor or discoloration.

    I bought the model below this one for my mom a long time ago & its still going strong so i decided to finally get myself one too. I love it! It has been a life saver when i need to make tea, but am using all my burners. In other instances it has saved me time while getting ready for work. It is nice not having to stand over the stove for boiling water. Even though some people have complained how much it dings, i don't find it bothersome.

    I bought this because I want to drink tea frequently. This is good for my purpose. Just be careful the kettle body will be really hot after boiling (of course,) especially for kids. If you want to use hot water like me such as making tea frequently, I recommend to buy a airpot or thermal carafe to keep hot water. Temperature will be keeping for a while, but getting cold anyway.

    I used an electric kettle last summer at my cousin's home. I decided to purchase this one since it has a selection of temperatures and is in the price range I wanted to spend. The water is heated quickly and being able to select a lower temperature than boiling is excellent for Green Tea. The selections indicate what type of Tea is used for the temperature as well. I am very happy with this product.

    So far this device has met all of our expectations. It heats up fast and delivers what it promises. The only caveat is that it is helpful to have at least one person in the household with small enough hands to clean out the inside once in a while. Also recommend using filtered water to cut down on mineral deposits.

    The kettle works really fast in heating up water. The temperature can be selected based on your beverage choice. The only inconvenience is the amount of noise the kettle makes. There is a beep for just about anything you do. Take it off the heater - a beep. change the setting - a beep. put back on heater - a beep.

    I have a several different types of teas that I like to drink and they are best when the water is heated to a particular temperature. I had just been heating water in my Keurig but this appliance allows me to heat the water to the correct temperature for the tea I am using. It is also great for hot chocolate and instant oatmeal.

    Bought this on more of an impulse buy while in the store. So glad I did, I use it everyday for oatmeal in the morning and my wife and kids use it for tea. The different temperature settings are very convenient. It is also a very clean piece of equipment that looks great staying out on the counter.

    Kind of splurged on this kettle in a spur of the moment purchase. It’s been a really great upgrade from my previous one which I dropped. I can’t say much about any rust spots yet but I’ve only had it a month. The multi temperature selection is great

    I bought this for a family member. The all aluminum pot and the auto shutoff features were primary reasons for purchasing this specific. It's easy to use and very safe for people who drink teas all day long. I highly recommend it. You do get what you pay for in my opinion.

    We’be been using the kettle at our home for nearly 2 years now and it has been working very well. Temperature pre-setting and boiling water indicators are very practical features. I can honestly recommend the kettle - it is worth every dollar spent.

    After 15 months of using this kettle, it stopped functioning properly. Seems I have to coax it to go on. Be insistent and try multiple times before it engages. Anticipating that any day it will cease operating..

    I've used electric kettles for years, as a tea drinker. This is my best kettle ever purchased. It heats about as quickly as our Keurig coffee maker, and I like the setting to keep the water warm as well. Great purchase.

    Need to qualify my review by saying I do not have a thermometer to verify the water temperature. That being said, the kettle heats up quickly and maintains the setting using the keep warm function, which I use for my coffee pour-overs.

    After my Cuisinart one died my girlfriend recommended this one instead. I love how fast it works. Only complain is you have to hit the keep warm button instead of it working automatically, but it does the job and it does it well.

    Saw one of this at a condo on vacation. Purchased this one because the reviews were great and the price was competitive at Best Buy. Wife loves the quality and it performs as expected. Very good product.
