I wish I had read other customer reviews properly regarding this product. I see that other people have had the same issue. Whilst the kettle is smart, after about five months the lid stops opening. The spout on the kettle is far too small to fill through the spout and I have to get a knife now to open the lid. I contacted the seller for a refund/return They said initially they would sort this out for me and then came back to me to say they wouldn’t! I now need to contact the manufacturer directly to get this sorted. Read all the one star reviews and avoid this productPammyW
Very very poor quality not worth £70 . The filter falls out every time you fill water it didn’t work at first kept cutting out. The glass has marked first use and it’s really loud. Picture is after one use. I had to give it one start to continue but it’s nit worth thatBexley Buyer
Bought this in April 2017 and it has been fine up until July 2018 when it would not start first thing one morning. Unfortunately the warranty is only for a year so I will have to just smile and move on.In terms of the (disappointingly short) ownership experience, it has been faultless. No problems with the lid that other reviewers have experienced - although I tended to hold the lid down while releasing the catch to avoid wear on the mechanism - and the kettle has always boiled quickly without being particularly noisy. The glass body has remained reasonably stain free as we have a water softener. That said, it scaled up when our softener was out of commission for three weeks and there are some external scale marks from water running down from the spot to where the glass meets the metal of the base. This is an area which is difficult - if not impossible - to access for cleaning/descaling.Overall it is a good product which would have scored higher if it had lasted longer, say for two years or more.Jeremy Ritchie
Great kettle and a good price ,, very pleased with my purchase ,Bumble
Really stylish glass kettle at a good price. Quick boiling.miss maureen warner
I expected a brand new Breville Glass Kettle but I instead received a second hand one which had been used to the point where limescale had built up and the base and Kettle itself was terribly scratched too. Very disappointing as this item was not as described and therefore very misleading. You will only end up wasting money on postage to return this kettle if you order one.Phoebe
Fast than enough to make the water boiling.. but the problem the glass been hotAli

Great kettle. Love the clear glass. Looks nice. Boils quickly.AmacGreat
Very useful and I would get it again if it broke. Get it before it runs out of stock.Amazon Customer
Easy to see the water level. Scale in hard water areas tends not to stick to glass. Element scales up a little but tends to flake off and can be washed out. Lid could be a little better at locking down as has popped up when in use a couple of times.Martin Hobbs
We think the kettle looks pretty good but we have had problems with the plastic rim that secures the lid and filter. Contacted Breville but their customer service is useless and they haven't responded despite being chased. The kettle was bought on a Prime deal but Amazon has offered to only refund not replace the faulty kettle, meaning that we'll have to stump up £25 to replace this for the same model!!!!Mirage69
It boils alright but it takes a while to switch off. The spout is too small and the kettle is heavy and clunky. Thinking of sending it back. Also it would be better if it was smaller. I do like the blue lights though.Ms Brenda Jet
Beautiful kettle I was very happy with it until it simply stopped working after a year and 1 month of light usage.Anna K.
