I have one of these kettles. Initially, I was attracted to the changing lights as they made the kettle look pretty (I know, I'm a sucker for a gimmick). The stainless steel also looked pretty and I thought it would look nice in my kitchen. The kettle sits on a base which can be rotated 360°. This is particularly handy as we are lefties in our household and it means that we can have the handle pointing left, but can change it if necessary. Some kettles have fixed bases which are designed for right,-handed people, so it's nice to have the choice. It is quite a large kettle and can make about 8 cups, although I've never had to make that many. The ... Read the complete review

What is it? A kettle with mood lighting, presumably to fit in to a similar themed kitchen? Perhaps something that can add an attractive light during dinner parties and make an interesting talking point? More likely though is that it's just another gimmick in the mad world of kettle marketing. I've noticed over the years that manufacturers have added increasingly wild additions to products that really have a very basic purpose. The kettle for example is there to boil water. Having a kettle with attractive modernistic curves is naturally a bonus but does it really need LED mood lighting as well? After all how many of us watch a kettle boil to ... Read the complete review

Ok firstly I put in a suggestion for this kettle as I couldn't seem to find the kettle I own turns out my suggestion came back with a reply of product already there, this is the correct model but the picture is a different looking kettle. The picture of the kettle I am reviewing can be found here http://www.value-electrical.co.uk/breville-lightning-jug-kettle-jk73-1880-p.asp so I don't know if Dooyoo has a wrong picture or if there are a few makes of the same model, but the description is exactly the same as the picture I have put a link to above so I am assuming it is just a different picture. Anyway so on with the review, I bought this kettle 3 years ago ... Read the complete review

If I'm honest I will tell you that I purchased this kettle solely on what it looked like, it has a very nice light up feature which is normally blue but when the kettle is boiling it changes to red, I think this is a lovely feature and looks great in my kitchen. The bulb for this feature is given a lifetime guarantee, the rest of the kettle is brushed steel. Other features included in this kettle are a large easy view water window, so it is very easy to see if it needs filling up and is also attractive to look at,. Apparently it is a quiet boil kettle although I must say that I personally didn't really notice any difference from the noise levels on my last ... Read the complete review

Our kettle blew about a year ago and so we needed to pick up a new one and took the decision to go for a name we trusted and had heard loads of good things about Breville. The Breville JK73 is a great little kettle which looks great in my kitchen and heats up quickly whenever I need to use it so despite the fact my wife and I are not regular hot drinks people we are now more likely to have as we don't have to wait for ages for the water to heat up. Recently we had family visiting who were big tea and coffee drinkers and so this kettle was brilliant and really came into its own as it has a brilliant stay warm button which once pressed keeps the water hot (this ...
