Review and Buying Guide of Breville VKJ206 and Stainless Steel Brita Filter Kettle

The earlier kettle we owned was also a brita kettle so when it last but not least grew to become drained and stopped quickly knocking off, we made a decision a new kettle was in order. We resolved we even now desired to adhere to a water filtered kettle as our drinking water tastes so badi ordered this 1 on-line and immediately after evaluating a several, made the decision to go for this a person as it was titled ‘silver & stainless steel’. Our outdated kettle was 50 % stainless steel so i desired a direct substitution. When the parcel arrived my spouse & i ended up still left rather astonished/disappointed to find that in fact the only ‘stainless steel’ on the total kettle was the lid. The rest of the kettle (bottom 50 percent) was really produced from a silver coloured plastic. In the beginning my husbands very first response was we should return the product or service and discover the correct substitute of our primary kettle nonetheless soon after in fact striving the kettle i uncovered it to be a large amount lighter than our previous kettle and it felt awesome to use. We made the decision to keep the kettle and are content to say it has been a enough replacement so significantly. You fill the water by way of the lid (not the spout) as with all brita kettles but the drainage time isn’t extensive and you can set the kettle off boiling before it experienced concluded draining. I would have rated it five stars on the other hand have to say it does glance ‘cheaper’ than the ss version despite the fact that am over-all pleased with it can be efficiency.

Owned a previous version of this kettle and was satisfied with it simply because it lasted seven yrs, so we hope this variation will previous as prolonged. There are a few of problems fantastic and negative about this new version however and they are: opening and closing system functions easily, the time to boil appears significantly less and it isn’t as heavy as the past one but that provides us to the bad details: ability is a great deal significantly less, no regulate to preserve water warm immediately after boiling and well, almost nothing else. These are the only detrimental details. We are extremely happy with this kettle so far, just hope it will previous as prolonged as our previous a person.

Changing my outdated breville filter kettle, am delighted with new kettle, seems good & does the work. Only draw back is the fill potential wish it held extra.

Breville filter kettle – silver and stainless steel. Nicely i am happy with this kettles’ performance – the h2o definitely preferences alot far better working with this filter kettle, and my cup of tea has greatly enhanced. There is no terrible seeking ‘scum’ covering the major of the tea.Upon filling the kettle, even nevertheless you have to fill it a small at a time, it will not choose extensive for the drinking water to filter through. (just make absolutely sure you will not change the kettle on to boil right before any h2o has protected the ‘element’. ) pretty swift to boil and pleasant and peaceful with lovely blue illumination. My only disappointment is that the ‘stainless steel’ portion, staying at the bottom of the kettle, just isn’t ‘stainless steel’ but a unpleasant seeking greyish plastic, which ruins the glimpse it. The silver, becoming the lid and the base of the kettle appears to be like excellent.If i could have afforded to splash out much more on a kettle, i would have procured the stainless steel with spectra illumination (vkj469) at £69.

Like pretty a couple of many others shopping for the breville filter range i acquired this filter kettle to change a prolonged serving unique brita filter kettle which are no extended avilable. It’s not awful, but the ability is very small and the button to release the lid is a really bad style, which commenced sticking within just a couple of months right before ultimately dislodging following about a 12 months of use. It boils rapidly, but the lid release button really is bad.

Breville electric kettle with brita filter. Does all the things it is meant to do, ordered to replace brita filter kettle no lengthier obtainable. Potential is also little, just about tends to make four cups, filters maxi style highly-priced. Unfortunatley i identified i could have obtained it less expensive somewhere else.

    Living in the deep south where the water is hard can quickly fur up the inside of your kettle. Having this filter prevents this and provides you with filtered water. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Owned a previous version of this kettle and was happy with it because it lasted 7 years, so we hope this version will last as long. There are a couple of issues good and bad about this new version though and they are: opening and closing mechanism works smoothly, the time to boil seems less and it isn’t as heavy as the last one but that brings us to the bad points: capacity is much less, no control to keep water warm after boiling and well, nothing else. Those are the only negative points. We are very happy with this kettle so far, just hope it will last as long as our previous one.

    Wonderful kettle that delivers what it says. . Been wanting to buy this kettle for a while now just never got round to doing it, however, it does everything it says and am throughly pleased with the purchase. Regrettably it is smaller than i thought, which i have to admit is my fault as i should have ordered the larger size, still it fulfills my needs.

      Like quite a few others buying the breville filter range i bought this filter kettle to replace a long serving original brita filter kettle which are no longer avilable. It’s not terrible, but the capacity is quite small and the button to release the lid is a really poor design, which started sticking within a couple of months before finally dislodging after about a year of use. It boils quickly, but the lid release button really is poor.

    This kettle is far better than our previous bosch. Great style, and flashes blue when coming up to the boil. Plus its a filter kettle so makes a great cup of tea which is essential if you live in a hard water area. The delivery service was also first class as arrived within 48hrs of ordering.

        A sturdy attractive filter kettle. I have bought three of these kettles now. Two for home and one for the office. The filter part is very important to me, no nasty chemical taste or sludge floating on top of your teajust one downside, the reminder on the lid has in two instances broken. I just have to remember to change the filter regularly but no problem really. However could be it is a fault which the manufacturers should be addressing.

      The previous kettle we owned was also a brita kettle so when it finally became tired and stopped automatically knocking off, we decided a new kettle was in order. We decided we still wanted to stick to a water filtered kettle as our water tastes so badi ordered this one online and after comparing a few, decided to go for this one as it was titled ‘silver & stainless steel’. Our old kettle was half stainless steel so i wanted a direct replacement. When the parcel arrived my husband & i were left somewhat surprised/disappointed to discover that in fact the only ‘stainless steel’ on the whole kettle was the lid. The rest of the kettle (bottom half) was actually made from a silver coloured plastic. Initially my husbands first reaction was we should return the product and find the exact replacement of our original kettle however after actually trying the kettle i found it to be a lot lighter than our previous kettle and it felt nice to use. We decided to keep the kettle and are happy to say it has been a sufficient replacement so far. You fill the water through the lid (not the spout) as with all brita kettles but the drainage time isn’t long and you can set the kettle off boiling before it had finished draining. I would have rated it 5 stars however have to say it does look ‘cheaper’ than the ss version although am overall happy with it’s performance.
