The Vista Kettle is sold by Breville, the famous small home appliance company which originated in Sydney, Australia, but have since spread across the world. They're known for their high quality and reliable products. They also sell toasters, blenders, bread makers, waffle makers, and more.


We now list the more notable features of this kettle:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, which equates to about 6-8 cups.
  • Dimensions - 26.01cm x 22.40cm x 16.99cm.
  • Rapid Boil - There's a 3kW heating element at the bottom of the kettle which allows the kettle to rapidly boil water.
  • Rear Water Gauge - On the side of the kettle is a water gauge which marks from 2 cups up to the 8 cup maximum. This allows you to fill the kettle with the exact amount of water you require, therefore saving on boiling time and electricity.
  • Limescale Filter - There's a removable and washable limescale filter in the spout. Its presence results in better looking and tasting drinks.

360 Degree Base

The base is a rotational 360 degree base, meaning the kettle is suitable for left and right handed users. The base has non-slip feet to reduce the chance of movement. Furthermore, the underside of the base has integrated cord storage to hide away excess cord between the kettle and the plug.

To reiterate, the Breville Vista Kettle is a kettle with a classic design, but modern functionality. It's compact and sleek in shape, with a polished stainless steel finish and accompanying black plastic accents. We rate the Vista Kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars, and recommend it to anyone with a modern or retro kitchen.
