Shoppers praise £65 Currys 'kettle replacement’ that takes 30 seconds to boil

As a nation of tea drinkers, sometimes the kettle just can't boil fast enough - unless you happen to have the kitchen gadget shoppers say makes a brew in less than 30 seconds. And what's more is that it's said to save homeowners money on their energy bills, too.

With the cost of living crisis currently in play, people are looking for ways to shave a few bob off their energy bills, which could mean cutting down on cuppas - or, investing in tech to save in the long run.

Currys shoppers have been heaping praise on a ‘Breville hot water dispenser’, saying it's "better than using a kettle", Liverpool Echo reports.


The Breville Hot Cup water dispenser holds five cups worth of water, and dispenses "exactly the amount of water you need and not a drop more", according to the retailer.

Currys added: "When making a quick cuppa, it saves boiling an entire kettle. The Breville VKJ318 can dispense up to 250ml of boiling water at the touch of a button. This modern kettle-replacement can dispense up to five cups before requiring a refill, so it's ideal for both the home and small office."

Customers were quick to put their five star reviews online, with the product scoring on average an 8.7 out of 10.

One shopper said: “You don't have to return to the kettle to add water to your cup, and then wait again for the tea to brew. I also like the way it delivers the right amount of hot water, so it saves energy. It is also fast.”

A second added: “35 seconds to boil a large cup of tea.” A third commented: “This is a great addition to my kitchen, I have put the kettle in the cupboard ready to be brought out when required!

“Within 30 seconds, probably less, I have my cup of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. I'm not sure how much time I shall save for the next few years from waiting for the kettle to boil! I think every home should have one.”

Lara Brittain, Kitchen Expert at Currys Plc described the product as a "sell-out favourite". She said: “At Currys we are proud to spot ‘hot’ products as we know which tech our customers will resonate with. The Breville Hot Cup is one of those, a sell-out favourite with our customers and we can confirm the UK’s largest tech retailer has a limited stock available online and in-stores on this product.

"The Breville Hot Cup VKJ318 Five-cup Hot Water Dispenser produces a cup of hot water up to four times faster than a traditional electric kettle. However, if customers can’t order in time, we suggest they keep their eyes peeled on the Currys website for further re-stock news.”

Priced at £64.99, you can purchase the hot cup here.
