Breville BRITA HotCup Hot Water Dispenser

Third on our list is the Breville BRITA HotCup Hot Water Dispenser. Whilst technically not a kettle, it may be of interest, so we include it here.

When boiling, the water tank will illuminate blue.

One feature we particularly like is how the dispenser's filtration system works whilst it's boiling. As a consequence it can boil 1 cup in under 50 seconds. Limescale, chlorine, etc, will be filtered from the water. A cup of water can be dispensed with the touch of a button, although there are 9 pre-set cup sizes to choose from. The filling cycle can be terminated through the use of a manual stop button. These features allow the Breville HotCup Dispenser to be used in an energy efficient manner.

Its other features include:

  • Boiling Indicator - When the water is up to temperature, a light will illuminate.
  • Large Filling Opening - There's a large opening to allow for easy filling. This is particularly useful for elderly users.
  • Removable Drip Tray - Underneath the dispenser is a drip tray which can easily be removed for emptying.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed so as to extend the lifespan of the kettle.
