Our Review

The Breville VKT071 Glass Kettle is a crystal clear glass body kettle designed to add a touch of style to your kitchen. The real magic comes when the water is boiling as the boiling chamber illuminates in a beautiful blue. The style is enhanced by the numerous stainless steel components, including the spout, part of the handle, part of the lid, and the metal band around the body of the kettle.
