I've only just got mine and love it....yes, the noise was a surprise even after reading reviews-I thought people were exaggerating !!! They're not....and the power cord is way too short. I had to rearrange appliances to enable it to reach my socket on the wall.
It is a bit tricky to fill in my sink so I have a milkbottle at hand and use that instead. Mug size not an issue....regular mugs are fine....
It boils VERY fast-that's very impressive indeed.
I may have to retain my kettle for my hotwater bottle though as I think it will be a bit tricky and maybe dangerous filling that with it.
I had originally ordered the Tefal then read reviews and that it's not boiling water so returned without opening. I already have a Tassimo for coffee that isn't a boiler...
So go for the Breville Hot Cup for boiling water. It looks very nice on the side as well.
