Review of Breville JK144 Spectra kettle
GH Breville JK144 Spectra

Jug style kettle. 3000W. 700ml -1.7 litre capacity. Double sided water gauge. Removable filter. Colour illuminated body. Concealed element. Flip open lid. 360° swivel base. Rubber feet. Cord storage. Keep warm. Polished stainless steel.


Good points: The body of the kettle changes colour when kept in standby mode and turns from blue to red when heating up to boil. Quick to boil one litre.

Drawbacks: The filter is very stiff to remove as there is not much room in the mouth of the kettle to fit fingers inside. Noisy when boiled containing the minimum and maximum amounts.

Empty weight: 1.2kg. Noise when full: 76.8dB. Time to boil one litre: 1min 59s

Rating: 67/100
Price: £49.99
