patsy77's review of Breville Hot Cup

★★☆☆☆
Breville Hot Cup

“Poor design”

Written on: 21/11/2011 by patsy77 (1 review written)

Variable amounts sounds as though it will programme more than one cup. It doesnt. Simply means nine cup sizes - nine cups? Increments by three drops at a time from tiny to normal mug size. Even then doesnt fill to the top. So whats variable? The plastic container doesnt lift out on its own - so whole unit has to be lifted to the tap. It is extremely heavy and even more so when the first amount has dripped through! Tried with a jug but lid gets in the way of pouring so water splashes all over. Have to wait to do another cup until it cools down. Not too long admittedly but faster to boil a kettle on minimum setting and get two cups! Boiling? It boils to an 'only just there' temperature and drinks cool down twice as fast!

There is absolutely nothing about this that I would recommend and it has been a mistake buy.

what a rubbish review......get a cup to suit the water amount....or pay £20-25 more for the newer model..........(i paid 30 POUNDS from asda......for that money its tremendous value....boils in less than 30 secs and by the time you have milk and sugared the first cup.the second cup is ready.i have tested the water and it is 97 degrees and thats after going into the cup....ample temperature for tea..and more than enough for coffee)
