About Breville

This High Gloss Kettle is from Breville, a small home appliance brand of Australian origin. Breville now sell products globally, including to the USA and the UK. They're a very well known and trustworthy brand, known for their quality products.

Specification

We now go into more detail:

  • Capacity - Volume of 1.7 Litres, or 6-8 cups.
  • Dimensions - 22.0cm x 21.6cm x 29.6cm.
  • Power - 3000W.
  • Energy Efficiency Class - A.
  • Smooth Pour Spout - The spout has been specifically designed to provide smooth, consistent pouring, resulting in reduced spills and splashes.
  • Removable Limescale Filter - Inside the body of the kettle there's a limescale filter. This filter is both removable and washable. Its presence not only makes your drink taste better, but also makes it look better and extends the lifespan of the kettle.
  • Illuminating Water Window - During boiling, the rear water window lights up blue. This looks rather neat and gives a nice atmosphere when waiting for the water to boil.
  • 360 Degree Base - The base is a standard 360 degree rotational base. Such a base makes the kettle suitable for right and left handed users. The underside of the base has integrated cord storage, reducing excess cord hanging around.
  • Non-Slip Feet - The aforementioned base has non-slip feet.
