Works very well. I use it to heat water to make single cups of coffee, so needed to be sure the water came to a high enough temp, yet not boiling. I keep it at work where I don\'t have a stove nearby. It\'s pricey, but serves the purpose.

Worked great till it stopped working! It started shocking me when I touched the bottom of the unit. Then it started becoming erratic and would turn off without heating water, or would not turn off when the temperature was reached. Now it's not working at all!

This is the most useful water kettle ever! It has specific temperature settings to perfectly brew different types of tea or you can just boil water for oatmeal or cocoa. A quality machine.

As a tea lover, my daughter knew she could score extra points with me by giving me this kettle. The correct water temperature is crucial for each type of tea and this kettle has all of the right settings to create that perfect cup of tea. Yes, she did get extra points because I love it!

This is the best water kettle ever. I bought it for my tea snob boyfriend, so his water is always at the exact right temp -- without using a candy thermometer ; My favorite things about it are that you can set it down on the base in any direction you want, it has water level windows on both sides, and the lid slowly lifts up when you touch the button to fill it up. It's awesome. Really. That said, It looks good on the counter, does its job perfectly, holds the water temp, and is ready for me whenever I want to make french press coffee....

I did lots of comparison shopping before ordering this Breville Kettle. I chose it because of the variable temperatures and the hold feature. It did not disappoint. Making tea is now very simple and much quicker for whatever type of tea I am making. This is a great appliance and I'm 100% happy with my choice.

If you are a tea drinker/lover, this is the PERFECT tea kettle for you. No more worrying about brewing tea to the right temperature or only doing everything at boiling. This kettle has options for Oolong, Green, White and Black tea - it will get the water to the perfect temperature for whichever tea you’re in the mood for. Plus it has a "stay warm" feature which allows you to keep the water warm in case you have to step away from it.

A few years ago switched from a stove top kettle to an electric one. I have never looked back! The electric kettle lasted for a very long time but it was time to replace it. I was hesitant to spend so much money on a kettle but the Breville Variable Temperature Kettle is well worth it. My favorite feature is the hold temp button. It's really nice to have my boiling water still hot if I am busy. I have had this kettle for about a month and don't know how I lived without it!
