Breville IQ Kettle Pure

As much as I love my morning coffee, I have become quite the tea-fan in the last few years. It started with falling in love with green tea and calming teas that help me sleep soundly at night. Then, I found flavoured teas!

Most evenings you can find my oldest daughter and myself, chatting over a cup of tea together, talking about the day and the plans for the next. 

One thing I recently learned about teas, is that not all should be steeped in the same temperature of water. Did you know that? 

Actually, I discovered this eye-opening fact when the Breville IQ Kettle ‘Pure’ arrived for review. And this is the main great feature of this particular kettle, as you can boil water to different temperatures – which is something most kettles on the market cannot do.

Yet first let’s take a step back here and talk ‘kettles’ in general. I have to admit, I’m not a fan of them, and have always replaced mine often due to the plastic and insides scaling so very fast. As in, disgusting fast. Actually, thinking back, I must have spent a fortune on kettles in my lifetime. 

Breville IQ Kettle Pure

Comparing most other kettles on the market to the spectacular Breville IQ Kettle Pure – you can’t help but notice the ‘pure’ in the product name. This is because the kettle itself is made of German Schott glass, getting rid of plastics {and all the easy-scaling and chemicals that come with that}. Yet rest assured, the glass is durable, high quality and thermal shock resistant. 

Combine that with the sleek silver polished look of the base  – this is one sexy appliance to call home on your counter!

With a capacity of 7 cups, the Breville IQ Kettle is generous in size and has displayed measurements as well. The soft lid opens at the push of a button, and not the hard and fast flip you are generally used to – but more of a controlled raise that prevents splashing and is another indicator of quality. 

Yet, let’s get back to the nitty-gritty of the Breville IQ Kettle Pure, and why it’s a step above the others. 

Another mention that: Different teas taste better at different temperatures.

And the Breville IQ Kettle Pure has 5 variable temperatures settings so that you get the perfect boil to whatever you need it for whether that be coffee, green teas, french press, black teas, etc. Since this is all new to me, I’ve been experimenting with my favourite beverages and making them at their intended temperatures. So fancy, right? Well, if you or someone you know is a coffee-lover and/or tea-fanatic, they want the best cup possible and they will tell you they can taste the difference! 

Breville IQ Kettle Pure review

Another great feature is the Breville IQ Kettle Pure 20 minute keep warm button, which keeps the heated water at the selected temperature and can be activated before, during or on completion of the water heating cycle. I also love that the jug is cordless when removed from the base, it makes it easier to entertain or just to re-fill the jug with water without having to lug the cord around the kitchen with you. 

Additional features are the removable scale filter, safety auto shut-off and boil dry protection plus all the parts that are in contact with water are BPA free.


 
The Breville IQ Kettle Pure can be purchased online or at retailer like Sears and The Bay in Canada. It retails for $199 but I’ve recently seen it on sale for $149. This kettle would make such a great gift to those that love their warm beverages, and really do need a quality kettle.

From now on instead of replacing my kettle constantly, I can use that money for different coffee and teas plus drink them at the temperature they were intended!

  125. I love this kettle! I drink a lot of tea, and the 5 variable temperatures settings & keep warm feature will be used ALL THE TIME!

  126. It looks like a good shortcut for tea and allows you to see the level of water in the see-through sides, so you really know how much water is in the pot. It saves on keeping the kitchen cooler, because you don’t have to light up the stove, so it’s less wasteful and is greener.
