  • Cushion-controlled lid, water-level indicator, removable scale filter

Let’s look at the good and bad qualities of this product.
Good:
  1. Stainless steel housing is better than plastic – no leakages of harmful substances to the water occur
  2. Modest , yet easily audible “ding” sound when the water has come to boil, then the kettle shuts of automatically
  3. Has a place to wrap around the cord
  4. Very solid construction
  5. The outlet is easy to pull due to the hollow center design
  6. Very comfortable handle, insulated and substantial to hang on to
  7. Separate  base contains the cord, which makes it easy to clean the kettle itself
Bad:
  1. It is a somewhat heavy kettle, but it has a good capacity
  2. While transparent and well-lit the water level “window ” is not located optimally – it is somewhat shadowed by the handle
  3. The surface does get really hot (just like any metal pot), so have to be careful
Read what one user had to say:
“We’ve had this hot pot for 6 years now. Everytime I am going to cook pasta, I heat the water in my Breville because it is so fast. MUCH faster than my gas range. The last two times I used it, it didn’t shut off on its own, so if I can’t fix it myself, I’ll buy another of the same one. 6 years is a long time for a product such as this… and who knows, I may be able to find the problem and have it another 6 years. If you need a hot pot, this is the one, and no plastic in your hot water!

This kettle is slightly bigger than the one above, in addition it has:
  • 5 pre-set brewing temperatures for tea and coffee: 175 F (80 C) for green tea, 185 F (85 C) for white tea, 195 F (90 C) for oolong tea, 200 F (93 C) for French press and 212 F (100 C) for making black tea and boiling water. Tea lovers will love this feature!
  • Hold Temperature button keeps water at selected temperature for 20 minutes
  • Water-level “window” on both sides (instead of behind a handle as in sk500xl model)
Because of all these added features this model is more expensive than SK500XL  
One of the users of this model said:
“Reviewed this Breville thoroughly. It heats the water to the desired temperature as selected, quickly and quietly giving a beep when the desired temperature is attained. There is a safety feature that will not allow the kettle to boil if there is too little water. This kettle is for tea! Should you desire a simple electric kettle there are many makes on the market. My wife, who does not like new gadgets thought this tea kettle was great…                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Abbotsword Flyers”

  • Tea Basket Cycle
  • Auto Start
  • 60 minute Keep Warm feature, so you can refill your cup over and over again
  • Variable temperature control
  • Time Since Brew – LCD timer to monitor freshness
Now the good and bad qualities:
Good:
  1. Sturdy construction
  2.  Can operate as an electric kettle just to heat water if you leave out the basket
  3.  Amazing magnetically suspended tea basket, which can be taken out
  4.  Includes a tea scoop
  5.  A spout has a mesh screen to prevent bits of tea to make it to your cup (the bits that managed to escape the tea basket)
  6.  Once the tea cycle begins the indicator shows the current water temperature, then counts down the steeping time once steeping has begun
  7. You can select a brew strength – strong, medium or mild
  8. No more tea bags!
 Bad:
  1. Pricey, but worth the money
  2. Can not be placed in a dishwasher
  3. Some might consider electric cord a little short
Read up on what one user of this tea maker said:
“Great product. I have verified that it is BPA free. The only issue we have ever had is with high-altitude use. Water boils at a lower temperature so you have to adjust the highest temperature settings down. This in no ways effects the tea. The unit is solid and easy to use and clean…
                                                                                                                         James Jensen”
