“Good...but not for everything”

Written on: 02/12/2013 by woodyforrest (2 reviews written)

What a great idea, instant boiling water, a real time saver. I've had this product for years now and I use it every morning to make a cup of tea for me and my wife. It's important to note that we both drink herbal teas and the Quick Cup provides water at the perfect temperature so no need to wait for it to cool. Transversely, when regular tea and coffee drinkers visit, they comment that their beverage is inadequately heated as the addition of milk means that the water isn't quite hot enough… Read Full Review

“Cheaper on Electricity !”

Written on: 04/11/2012 by GS1949 (1 review written)

I was given one of these older machines by a friend. Certainly cheaper to run than a kettle. I have overcome the 'lack of' softener cartridges, we use a Water Jug with it's own cartridge and I removed the cartridge from the Tefal. It seems to work very well. As some say, it's a bit splashy with dispensing water, but apart from that very good. I must find the instructions, as I didn't know about the descale function… Read Full Review

If the blue light comes, it needs de-scaling....

To reset, simply hold both top buttons down until the blue light goes out!

Simples!

Thanks.
I haven't seen any blue light yet !
When I do, I hope I will have remembered your tip.

Is there any way to stop the water splashing about when filling the cup?
I've tried cleaning the spout filter thing but sometimes it splashes out the cup.
Thank you.

Here is the correct way to descale:
Descaling your appliance
In order to optimise the lifetime of your appliance, we recommend that you descale it at least every 2 months.
Descaling should be carried out more frequently if you live in a very hard water area.
Certain models also have an indicator light K, which indicates when descaling is necessary. When this
indicator K is on during use, it is time to descale the appliance.
To descale:
1 Remove the Claris filter cartridge fig 6.
2 Place a container of at least 1.5 litres under the nozzle.
3 Empty the tank A, if it is still full of water, then reposition it on its base fig 2.
4 Pour 1 litre of commercially available white vinegar at 8° into the tank.
5 Press the hot water button H and the ambient water button G simultaneously for at least 5 seconds fig 7.
You have the possibility of launching a descaling cycle even if the indicator light K is not on. To do this, press
the hot water button H and the ambient water button G simultaneously for at least 10 seconds
6 The descaling cycle thus runs automatically for approximately 10 minutes.
The indicator turns off at the end of the cycle.
7 When the cycle has come to an end, empty the container and refill the water tank to a maximum.
Relaunch a new operation for rinsing the appliance by holding down one of the buttons fig 3 and fig 10.
8 Once this last cycle has finished, reposition the Claris cartridge; your appliance is ready for use once more

As regards splashing:
Its the nature of these machines, just try and raise the cup on block of wood, when ur filling it to prevent splashing.................

“4 years on and still working 100%”

Written on: 23/09/2012 by deludeddonny (1 review written)

This is a great peice of kit and have no idea why they stopped making it? All the new ones out there work very differently. This heated the water as it came out, all the new ones boil it a cup full at a time. Only gripe is it is not getting harder to find the filters for them, but that is to be expected since they stopped making this model many years ago! … Read Full Review

hi and thank you, but this model does not have a button, it has a switch, turn to the left and a smaller amount of water comes out, turn to the right and a larger amount of water comes out, it does not matter which way i turn it only half a cup comes out. regards charlie

“Easy water heating for Coffee and Tea”

Written on: 30/05/2011 by glassfroster (1 review written)

Excellent system for fast, hot cuppas. Had ours for nearly four years and its only now going wrong. We will definately replace it with another. It does have a downside and thats the noise as its working. The automatic descale functions are excellent although you do have to do it several times to get the best result. I will never go back to a standars kettle again!… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2011 by MJA1 (1 review written)

This product was bought due to the alleged speed that it produced hot water. For the first three months it worked as promised, it then got noisy and was prone to spluttering steam out. It is now 10 months old and has finally given up the ghost, it should be noted that it began to automatically pump water out without being touched. I have now spoken to Tefal who have informed me that the model has been taken out of production to be replaced by a newer model. In my opinion I would never have… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2011

Owned it for more than a year, took out the filter since we live in a soft water area. Very very satisfied till this week! Worked great, and we average about 10-15 cups of tea a day. Now the water comes out very slowly, the machine keeps stopping and I have to press the cup button several times for a cup. Descaling does not help. It was expensive and I expected it to last longer. Even though I liked it a lot, after reading these reviews I am hesitant to buy a new one… Read Full Review

Mine has emptied hot wate all over the new worktop, near boiling water all over the cupboard fronts and shelves. The edges have lifted and sections are peeling.. Suggest everyone leaves them switched off.

So to make 1 cup of tea, this quick cup used 0.4 units of electricity? If the quick cup is 2.8kw, then that means it takes 1/7th of an hour to make a 1 cup of tea - over 8 minutes per cup. (2.8units per hour / 0.4 units used = 7 cups per hour)

Do I need to say more???

Brilliant, the best kettle we could have bought. We have had it for three years now and could not imagine life without it. It even impressed other members of the family so they have bought one as well and they love it just as much. I can't ever think of having to wait for the kettle to boil again, less then 1 min and your drink is ready to go instead of that boring 5 mins we use to have to wait. It has taken some real hammer over the 3 years from a family of four avid coffee and tea drinkers… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2010 by sandradenbow (2 reviews written)

Easy to use but no one likes the tea as it comes out frothy and looks disgusting. We have had it for nearly four years now and it has saved us money and energy but fed up with others comments about the way tea looks and tastes. Also they say its not hot hot enough but I think its the perfect temperature, I can actually drink my tea without burning my mouth. Coffee on the other hand does not froth which would have been good but never mind.

To use it:

Having previously set water level.
Place cup under spout, pop in teabag, press button, then remove, no froth.
Now remove teabag, add milk an sugar to taste!

Bought it a clearance warehouse at half price. I thought I'd got a bargain, but luckily I found out the returns policy protected me in case it was faulty.

It was a magic product during the first week you use it, but like the majority of reviews, water became tepid. Returned it, got a replacement. Lasted about a week. Unit probably made 8 cups a day, not heavy use, but not light.

On top of all this, It is a little slow to pour as well and very noisy. I got it because I tend be up into the wee… Read Full Review
