Very quick to boil
Very nice and kind of ingenious kettle. It lights up blue when on, so the water inside looks very nice. It also allows storing the mains lead inside the base (or adjust its length). It heats water up quickly, pours it very well with no spillages. There are two windows, one per each side, so it's very easy to pour as much water as required. One more important thing - when boiling, it keeps itself on a bit longer than other kettles to kill all the germs. I like it.

Off what I can read one either love it or hate it. I like it. It hasn't let me down yet. Boils water quickly not making a lot of noise at the same time. flip lid is quite comfortable in use. Not difficult to clean. Water level is clearly visible. As for me, Breville has retained their reputation.

too noisy
I find this kettle a bit too noisy. Actually so noisy that I decided to give it to my sister and look for a new kettle for myself. My sister said she doesn't mind and does not consider VKJ386 as noisy but for me it was too much. I intend to buy something less powerful but quieter. Breville did a great job when it comes to design as item looks amazing. If you look for a rapid boil kettle you may consider it.

bad water gouge
It could be a great kettle but for one reason it isn't. Water gouge or rather water window. It is large and you could expect it has a great visibility. Unfortunately anything below two cups of water is not visible at all and to be able to check current water level you have to lift the lid up and check the interior. A bit annoying.
