Breville Soft Top White Electric Tea Kettle

Rapidly bring water to a boil for tea, hot chocolate, French press and more with this smartly designed, lightweight countertop kettle. Breville's specially designed lid prevents splashing and releases steam gradually upon opening. With the press of a button, the "soft" opening lid opens slowly, allowing steam to escape gradually-not in a scalding puff. Powerful 1500W heating element brings water to a fast boil. Extra-wide lid opening makes it easy to fill and clean the kettle's interior. The lid-release button is conveniently built in to the comfortable, contoured handle. Easy-read, illuminated on/off switch can be seen in darkness. Large water windows allow you to precisely gauge how much water is in the kettle. Auto shut-off when water has come to a boil. All parts that come in contact with water are BPA-free. Detachable filter removes scale deposits for cleaner water. Heavy-duty plastic exterior that wipes clean easily. Cord wraps around heating base for storage when not in use.Model #BKE620XL 57 oz. capacity. 6" x 9" x 9 1/2" high; 2 lb. 8 oz. This product is intended for use in the United States and Canada and is built to United States electrical standards. Made in China.

Works, but has a bad smell/taste
November 21, 2013
For the most part, this is a good kitchen tool. Easy to use, does the job, etc...
Sadly, the plastic lining has a horrid smell to it and imparts that smell, and taste, to the water. At the advice of a Breville rep, I leave the top open unless I'm using the kettle. Sometimes I dump the water out and leave the top open. Months later the smell is still there.
If you want a kettle, pay the additional money for one that doesn't have a plastic interior.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Design
Cons: Quality, adds bad smell/taste to water

have you tried reading the manufacturer's directions on cleaning the pot? i clean my pot once a week. i haven't had the same issues as you describe. i recently bought kettle and coffee pot cleaner at bed bath and beyond and use it to make the pot look like new every time, inside and out. before, i was using the vinegar method described in the appliance brochure, and it was fine as well.

Excellent for tea and coffee lovers
June 25, 2013
My husband and I use this product on a daily basis. He enjoys using this for the pour-over method of making coffee, and I enjoy making a cup of tea at night. This is now the staple of our kitchen counter, with a convenient auto-off button, easy-to-use design, and fast boiling water!
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, Speed, Quiet, Design

Love, Love, Love It!
December 27, 2012
I have been using my electric kettle for a couple of weeks now and just love having hot water so quickly and easily. It couldn't be easier to use, and it saves time and energy as well. My teenage sons can't leave it on and burn it up, either!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Time-saver
