Our Review

The Breville VKT017 Curve Jug Kettle is a compact, sleek and stylish kettle with a uniquely textured design. It has a high gloss finish and chrome accents which work well together. Its modern design makes it suitable for the vast majority of kitchens. We particularly like how the chrome handle and chrome part of the lid look next to the black body.

As well as the black model featured above, the kettle is also available in white (with a chrome handle), red (with a chrome handle), or grey (with a rose gold handle).

From a practical point of view, the kettle is fairly standard, and has most of the features seen in modern kettles.

About Breville

Breville are a famous brand in the small home appliance industry. They originated in Sydney, Australia, and have since spread across the world. They have a reputation for high quality products. They also sell toasters, blenders, waffle makers, and more.


Now we will look at the features in more detail:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, 6-8 cups. This is standard for most modern kettles.
  • Dimensions - 25.8cm x 23.0cm x 16.8cm.
  • Rapid Boil - The 3kW heating element allows the kettle to boil in good time. No longer will you miss that final cup of tea before work, or hang around while visitors wait for their hot drink.
  • Illumination - The kettle illuminates when boiling.
  • Limescale Filter - The limescale filter sits behind the spout. It's removable, washable and robust. It will help make your drink look and taste better.
  • Water Level Indicator - The rear water window shows how much water is inside the kettle, so you don't waste electricity (and your time).
  • Lift Off Lid - The lid is easily removable for filling and cleaning.
  • Boil Dry Protection - One of the key safety features is boil dry protection. The kettle will detect if all of the water has boiled away, and shut itself off, therefore protecting against damage to the kettle, or worse.
  • Concealed Element - The heating element is concealed to enhance visual appeal, and to facilitate easy cleaning.

Easy Fill Spout

The easy fill spout causes the water to pour smoothly, therefore reducing spills, splashes and drips.

360 Degree Base

There's a 360 degree base which the kettle sits on while boiling. The base allows the kettle to be placed at any angle for convenience. On the underside of the base are non-slip feet to reduce any unwanted movement.

In summary, the Breville VKT017 Curve Jug Kettle Base is an excellent choice of kettle. It's packed with features, and its uniquely textured design with chrome accents make it suitable for the modern kitchen. We rate it a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.
