The Breville VKT159 Temperature Select Kettle is a premium kettle with variable temperature control, designed to provide boiled water at the optimal temperature for whatever drink you require, whether it's black tea, green tea, white tea, coffee or oolong (to name a few), you'll be set to go with this kettle.
From a design perspective, the kettle is compact and fairly sleek. Its official colour is nickel, although it's essentially a brushed stainless steel kettle. There are shiny brown components on the lid and around the bottom of the kettle. The handle is made from stainless steel.
Breville, which you've no doubt heard of at some point, are a renowned brand of small home appliances. They originated in Sydney, Australia, but now operate across the world. They're particularly well known for their kettles, but they also sell toasters, blenders, water dispensers, waffle makers, and more.
We now look at the icing on the cake, i.e. the temperature control functionality. As mentioned briefly above, the kettle has five temperature settings, namely 80C, 85C, 90C, 95C and 100C. These make the kettle suitable for a wide range of tea leaves and coffee beans on the market. This is illustrated below:
Pictured below are the digital controls used to regulate temperature. There's also a temperature tracker which can be used to save energy.
In addition to the temperature selection functionality, the kettle has the following features:
Breville have available a matching SELECTA toaster, as seen below. The pair are available on amazon.co.uk.
As an added bonus, amazon.co.uk have a video of the kettle and matching toaster.
Overall, the Breville Temp Select Kettle is well designed, and works as advertised. The standard features are there, such as a concealed element, a water gauge, a 360 degree base, etc. The temperature control aspect is perfect for people experimenting with different teas and coffees. We rate this kettle 4.5 out of 5 stars.
