Could not live without! Still going strong after 5 years!
I purchased this in Dec 2015 so its tried and tested. I love this hot water dispenser and would not be without it now. Even when making 4 cups of tea its still quicker to pop your cup under, wait for the water to pour 4 times then boil the normal kettle once. I love the added bonus of not having to pick up a heavy kettle full of boiling water. This hot water dispenser, dispenses 250ml of boiling hot water in around 30-35 seconds. It does not have a variable dispense rate but the more expensive ones do. After having for nearly 2 and a half years i would not hesitate to get another one and cannot recommend a better product. Update May 2021 - This kettle is now nearly 5 and a half years old and I have definitely have got my monies worth. It makes on average 35 - 40 cups of tea a day (for us, we love tea!) and is still going very strong. One thing I will say is late last year it started leaking a little where the water display shows (right along the edge where it meets the black plastic) but a little bit of superglue did the trick and never had an issue since. I will definitely invest in another one once this one goes. Ive never had to descale as there is no water sitting on an element. It reallyxis a perfect kettle. For anyone looking for one of these I would not hesitate to buy this one.
Quality, quality, quality 5*
A quality bit of kit, been fed up for ages of inferior quality kettles/elements and supposedly rapid boil features that actually take 2 to 3 minutes to boil. So in my search for a hot water dispenser that also had a filtration system and fast boil also a system that varies the amount for different sizes of cups, I came across this beauty and it is FANTASTIC, has all the features I wanted and at a stonking great price Compared to other retailers. If you're in the market for one of these dispensers look no further, you wont be disappointed.
Easy to use and quick!
Best features are the ability to vary the amount of hot water dispensed and being able to stop the flow instantly. We bought this to replace out kettle and so my disabled 10 year old daughter could be more independent, she could not lift a conventional kettle. I love the blue light when switched on, makes it easy to see it is heating, although as it takes less than a minute to dispense the water you barely see it on for long. The cut off for the water is instant. Yes it does splash a little ( an i mean a few drops which are never a burn risk) but the convenience of it is brilliant. And the water is HOT , I measured it at 92 degrees and I know a lot of other similar dispensers fail to heat the water to near boiling. I have not found any problems with a plastic taste . It saves us money as my husband now prefers using instant coffee from this dispenser to using his Tassimo! It also has a slightly larger footprint than a kettle but I was surprised at how compact it is. I would say if you are looking for a hot water dispenser then you can't go far wrong with the Breville.

Great if you have kids
My youngest is 10 and he can now make his own hot drinks. It's ready to go first thing in the morning, so no waiting for kettle to boil. My only advice, there's five of us so I probably should have got the 5lt one so I wouldn't have to refill as often but other than that I'm delighted. I don't know how energy efficient it is but it's definitely costing less than the kettle to use.
Easy to use
Bought for my elderly father, who really likes it. Much safer for him than pouring from a kettle that has just boiled. It is easily filled & as he has poor sight it suprised me that he can see the water level clearly. (When discharging the level is iluminated). He likes the fact it is always kept just off the boil (on the hottest setting, there are cooler levels if required). Up to now it was been reliable & uses only low power to stay hot, which in the long term will be better too.
It meets my expectations
Item purchased (5L version) from Amazon and was delivered a few days later. No information was received for dispatch or delivery but ended up on the doorstep a few days after ordering. Luckily no tea leaf had decided to re-home the item before I got it. Not good. Unpacking the item I did notice the underside rotating base was flawed as per another review but it stood flat on the work surface OK. Following the usual initial flush through it was time for tea. I've been using a water dispenser (since now gone to calculator heaven as it developed a leak after 5 years) my brew was great, I must have got used to the taste of my old dispenser but this one is so much better. Water is heated to a little under boiling point and is good for tea for my taste. Working from home during the COVID-19 lock down I drink a lot of tea during my many Zoom meetings and this thing works a treat so far. No waiting for my old dispenser to nearly boil, I can just pour the water into the mug onto the teabag and in 5 minutes I have a fine brew of Earl Grey. I've been monitoring scale build up and after a week it's pretty nominal. I did purchase a tub of citric acid power to clean it. I tried out the citric acid powder on my old faithful reserve kettle (when my old dispenser died) and it worked really well so I have few doubts as to it's suitability on this item In summary after a weeks use, operation is easy (drop the temperature before refilling for an hour) dispensing hot water without waiting for a mug boil and for me a much more natural tasting tea taste I must have forgotten. One odd thing is that the water level indicator looks like it's calibrated for a smaller capacity as when the item is filled to the max level in the boiler you can dispense a few mugs worth before you see a drop in the water level indicator. Having said that the indicator is very easy to read to give an indication of what is left in the tank. Conclusion, so far very pleased, I will update this review if needed in the future but so far so good.

Great equipment does its job well.
Bought this to replace a SWAN we had for many years and i'll say i'm not disappointed. This has a easy removable lid although is a little bit flimsy but holds it in place, to put water in. The water level indicator is handy to have as you don't have to keep opening the lid to see when you need to refill. The tap is sturdy and flows really well. Also as my other one was steel limescale seemed to build up quite easily but this ones seems to be better to use. For a lot less than your major brands which it does the same job, definitely worth getting.
Boils fairly quickly and not too big. Slimmer than some taking less space.
We were without hot water for a few days while a new system was installed and this filled the gap very well. Sat on the kitchen worktop next to the sink and by not using the drip tray, the urn tap overhung the sink just like a normal tap. It does not have a control to select different temperatures but for our purpose was not needed as we wanted as much hot water as possible and added cold water as required. The switching off thermostat once at boiling sometimes took a little time to cut in but as long as the lid is firmly on it worked fine. Would not want to leave it on if going out or overnight. Would buy again.
Works well and very quiet
Bought it a few months ago and now used every week for meetings. Boils from cold in under 15 minutes, much less if not full. Pretty quiet, sits at the back of the room and occasionally make a gentle boiling sounds for a minuet or so as the thermostat turn on, but barely noticeable. Does what it is supposed to very well. Only really very picky gripe is the distance between the tap and drip tray is a touch too small for some mugs, but overall an excellent appliance and would certainly recommend.
