Our Review

The Breville VKT065 Lustra Electric Kettle is a uniquely designed, slim and sleek stainless steel kettle. Boasting six colour themes, the Lustra Kettle is bound to match most kitchens. On top of this, the Lustra Kettle has many of the usual features expected from modern electric kettles, including rapid boiling, a large capacity, a rear water window and a removable limescale filter.

The six colour themes are as follows:

  • Candy Red
  • Matt Black
  • Matt Forest Green
  • Matt White
  • Shimmer Cream
  • Storm Grey.

Design

The Lustra Kettle has a stainless steel body, and mirror chrome accents for added style. These accents can be seen on the handle, the lid and the power switch. The spout has a contoured design for both style and practical purposes.

Specification

We now delve deeper into the specification:

  • Capacity - 1.7 Litres, or around 6-8 cups depending on the type of drink and personal preferences.
  • Dimensions - 16cm x 16cm x 27cm.
  • Power - 3kW for rapid boiling.
  • Concealed Heating Element - The heating element is concealed in the bottom of the kettle, therefore making it more visually appealing. A concealed element has the additional benefit of the kettle being easy to clean.
  • 360 Degree Rotating Base - The kettle sits on a 360 degree rotary base. This is very convenient as the base is always oriented correctly, regardless of whether the user is left or right handed. Another positive is the fact that the base has non-slip feet.
  • Integrated Cord Storage - Excess cord can be neatly tucked away underneath the base, therefore reducing worktop clutter.
  • Illumination - The water gauge and power switch illuminate when the kettle is boiling, adding to the style.
  • Contoured Spout - The contours of the spout have been designed that way to facilitate smooth pouring.
  • Removable Limescale Filter - The limescale filter is reusable and can easily be popped out and rinsed under a tap.

Lift Off Lid

There's a conveniently placed handle on top of the lid meaning it can easily be removed. This makes filling the kettle a breeze.

Matching Toaster

Recommendation

Overall, the Breville Lustra Kettle is a sound choice of kettle. It's available in 6 colours, which gives plenty of scope for matching it to your kitchen. And the matching toaster completes the design. The Lustra Kettle is modern and sleek with functionality which is mostly standard for contemporary electric kettles. We rate the Lustra Kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
