    I can only speak for how things are after just a few days use, but I am quite impressed with the speed of boil, not too noisy and the fact that the kettle is very lightweight to lift while at the same time being well built. The lid is easy to remove completely but still robust with no button mechanism to possibly deteriorate over time. Many kettles I looked at had the water level window behind the handle which is not ideal, whereas the Breville has two windows, one either side for left or right-handed users, so much better. I also like the fact that I can if needed use just enough water for one mug without having to boil an excessive minimum required amount as was the case with my previous kettle, so more economical. Despite it having a good 1.7L capacity, this 3kW model is quite compact with an attractive finish. I could have paid a lot more for another kettle without seeing any improvement over this model. It will be well cared for so I can only hope that it continues to impress in the future.

    Love the design of the toaster. Functions well and ideal for toasting crumpets due to the wider slots.

    It can be a difficult choice to buy a kettle that suits your needs, both visually and for the functions you need. But all we wanted, functionally, was a kettle that could boil and any lights it had do not remain on when it is attached to the base. This kettle is used in our bedroom.

    I have included several photos with this review, showing that the light is limited to the switch you depress to turn it on, it goes off when the kettle reaches boiling point. The kettle does not “run on” boiling, unlike some others.
    You can also see in the photos that it has a concealed heating element, easy to keep clean. There is also a removal plastic screen filter near the spout.
    The lid removes in its entirety, see photo, but we were still able to fill it up from the spout on both the differrent type of taps we tried, without removing the lid.

    The power lead is quite short, all the kettle we have bought are the same. So around 80cm in length. We did uncoil it by one turn from the base, that helped.

    The kettle is made from plastic, even the silver / chrome coloured parts, at least they feel to be and they were not magnetic, to test if they were made of metal. It is very solid, the ribbed plastic being particular appealing.

    It is a little lower in heigh than our other kettle, being a little squat overall. The semi transparent viewing window, to see how much water you have in the kettle, is on both sides, really useful. Again see the photo showing this.
    It does hold 1.7l of water and boils quickly with not too much noise. The pout is very precise when pouring, no spills of drips etc.
    The base seems to remain dry when it has boiled.

    We would really find it very difficult to find fault with this kettle. If you are needing a simple kettle that feels most sturdy, and works well, then this ticks those boxes.
    We are very pleased and would recommend this to buy.

    I do hope that this review has helped you.

    UPDATE – I am so impressed with how quick the kettle boils and the water stays hot. And I’ve never known such a good toaster either. Highly recommend both items.

    I usually go for Russell Hobbs items but my sage green bubble kettle broke!!! It wasn’t very old and it cost a small fortune so I wasn’t best pleased. And of course my 4 slice toaster was fine but I couldn’t find a colour match!!!
    So, I did some research and found this set was actually no 1 or 2 on a few lists AND good old Amazon had an offer on. I got the set for £47 then I used my £5 off discount code.
    Kettle – it’s very light even when full which is good. It does feel a bit cheap / plastic but it works fabulous!!! It’s super quick and the lovely little white light is a nice touch for early morning cuppas.
    Toaster – after realising we really didn’t need a 4 slicer I downgraded to this one and it’s so compact but excellent at its job!! Important thing for me I can fit my crumpets in without having to squish them a bit.
    The light grey colour goes very well with our other kitchen colours as well so that’s a bonus.
    Defo recommend this set.

    This toaster is ideal for stowing away when not in use. It’s compact and lightweight and I don’t keep it on the countertop while not using it so it is ideal for me. It also does great toast and large slices really well

    Only lasted 1 year before fuse blown in house when using. Contacted breville who advised to get in touch with seller for support… Amazon support not available for this item as it’s ‘through breville’. Buy somewhere else as Amazon will not give you support or warranty where other places will(!!)

    Looks great. It feels a bit light and flimsy but it has all the basic functions. The toasting is not very uniform. It’d be great if it had something to cover it while not in use so it does not collect dust.
    Overall it’s good for the price range.
