We had this kettle for 3 years. It has started leaking at the bottom of the water level window & around the base. It is appalling that a product that is designed to contain boiling water leaks. This is very dangerous...in a worse case scenario, the entire water level window could come off and result in severe burns to the user caused by boiling water. I have serious safety concerns about this product.
Leaks badly after 2 year of use as everyone has also said
Very noisy jug, difficult to hold a conversation when it's on. Also no on/off light to tell you when it's switched on which for the price should be there. A piece of the lid came off and refused to be put back on. And almost from day one we had to press down the on switch several times to get it to stay on. If I hadn't lost the receipt I would have taken this back. I won't be getting another Breville.
looks lovely on the bench
I am very happy with my purchase and the great online service and delivery
Absolutely 100% the worst kettle ever. Never has a product made me so irritated! Takes 6 or more click until I finally holds itself down EVERY TIME. I see it must be a manufacturing problem as more people have the same problem.
Had one of these for 3 years. Has always worked fine until a few months ago when it started leaking from the quantity gauge window. Water running out. Won't buy another one. The seal is shot. Always liked Breville products but should last longer than 3 years.
Not even two yars old, leaks and noisy
Have had this kettle for about 10 months now and it leaks from the indicator window, we need to buy another kettle and I would not recommend that you buy this one.
Leaks water out the level indicator window.
After 3 years started leaking from the water level window. Time for a new one.
had approx 2 years then plastic water level indicater started leaking
Kettle works well however after ~1 year starting leaking so time for a new one.
I love the kettle except for the blue light is missing when you switch on. That was a feature I liked best. You always knew when it was on. Now I have to double check.
Switch easily loosen.....it takes i don't really know how many push before it turns on....gotta look for another kettle.
We have just had to replace our jug after 2 years water leaking out of the plastic water gauge on the side.We have replaced with another Breville but if any problems will ask for refund
Bought mine 3 years ago. Noisy yes but worked fine. No leaking, no breaks. It just stopped working. No reason why just doesnt switch on. Buying a new one but wont buy a Breville. 3 years is not long enough.
right from day one switch took about 6 pushes before it stayed on, and now just over year old not working, so will get a cheap $20 jug with same year warranty!!!
Terrible product, gone though two of these kettles and both have leaked at the bottom of the water gauge after around a year of use, get another kettle as this model is manufactured with some very bad plastic gauges and will most likely leak.STAY AWAY
