    Features sound great. Anyone know of any similar kettles in price range with those features for comparison? Also what is the warranty like on this?

    • +5 votes

      Well, I paid around $130 for the Breville Smart kettle which comes with a 1 year warranty which is standard for kettles. I'm now at the 14 month mark and the kettle has started making a sparking/sizzling sound when the power is turned on. It's the most I've paid for a kettle and also the shortest life I've gotten out of one - I'll never spend that much again.

      If I paid $40 for a kettle and had to throw it out after a year, I'd be a lot happier than having spent 3x that which is what happened with Breville.

      The only kettle I can think of with similar functions at a similar price point was the Ronson one which was sold at Target for $40 but is no longer available.

        If you still have the receipt (or even a credit card receipt/statement) take it back to where you bought it and get them to fix it.
        A $130 (or even a $40 dollar one) should last for more than 14 months.
        If they give you trouble contact Breville directly.

        •  

          I agree but it's a question of whether it's worth the hassle and argument, because I bet they would refuse to help at the store. There are multiple reviews on the model of my kettle and others saying that Breville were also less than helpful when their kettle died even 2 weeks out of warranty.

          @lisss:

          I've taken stuff back at Myer after the warranty finished and they usually did a straight exchange on the spot…

        • +3 votes

          @lisss: I'm quite sure you will be covered by Australian Consumer legislation in this case, irrespective of the period stated on documented warranty by the manufacturer. It is reasonable to expect an item like (for the amount you paid) to perform to designed criteria for longer than 1 year.

        • +2 votes

          Well under Australian Consumer law, warranty isn't set by the manufacturer. It's what a reasonable person would expect. If you say, that you, as a reasonable person would expect a $130 kettle to last at least 5 year, as such want it replaced (or repaired) free of charge, as required under Australian Consumer law, they must oblique. It's up to you whether you return it to the place of purchase or the manufacturer.

          Breville were also less than helpful when their kettle died even 2 weeks out of warranty.

          That's very disappointing… not to mention illegal!

          @quakka:

          Which means absolutely nothing… I had a $15,000 aircon fail on me 1 month out of warranty, both the installer and the supplier refused to help. I went to fair trading. Fair trading acknowledged that they were in breach of the law, but told me they had no powers to enforce it.

          So to enforce a $300 a repair, I would have had to take a day off work, pay $5x in lodgement fees, and then plead my case… and provide evidence from an "expert" that a fault in the computer board couldn't be my fault - more than the cost of the repair…

          ACCC consumer law isn't worth anything. Buy an extended warranty, that's my recommendation.

        • +2 votes

          That's true. I use a $30 Kmart kettle and it was eventually replaced three times over the last 12 months. One kept tripping the mains instead of turning on, one stopped turning on after a few weeks and the other blew up with a bit of fireworks. We use the kettle carefully so it was rather disappointing that they don't last as long as the $7 plastic ones. I kept the receipts for all of them and they were refunded without problems. The forth kettle is working well but I wonder if I should get this one just in case…

          For white goods, I choose to pay with a credit card that provides 1 year free extended warranty.

          @iSamurai:
          I replaced the stainless steel breville three times over the 12 months and it's not the cheap one….. three of them kept tripping the mains
          so nothing to do with branded or unbranded, equally bad…..

          The shop told me don't bother with the fouth one, so i got a refund after that.

      •  

        Cool, thanks for the information, I'll give this a go, I guess its worth trying it for $40 (Currently using one of them white plastic kettles).

      Comes with a 1 year warranty as standard.

      If you do have problems just outside the warranty period it's not officially covered but usually we'll work something out for you.

      In that old ozbargain post it said was $60 now $50. In this one it says RRP $100. So what's the RRP?

      • +2 votes

        I would imagine RRP is whatever they choose….. it's their product

        • +3 votes

          Actually in the other post it was discounted for everyone to $60 and ozbargain'ers took another $10 off. I'm not vouching for the vendor but just saying they aren't fiddling the numbers dishonestly.

        It's not unreasonable for a kettle with these features to have a RRP of $100.

        •  

          Using the Kenwood Kmix purchased in Peter's from an ozbargain's post. RRP over $100 when first come out (actually price in DJ). Paid $39 after cash back. Think this can be better with temp control on the glass base. Liked Avancer Double wall glass - Avancer made quality stuff.

    •  

      Back in May'13 they had them for $50 with free shipping on pre order with delivery at the end of June'13. That deal also had a two year warranty.

    Nice looking kettle, if I didn't have a cupboard full of those $5 Deals Direct SS kettles I'd consider this! :)

  •  

    Rep, what's the maintenance regime on these to keep the quiet boil technology "quiet". Been stung before with the same wording. Turned out louder than a $10 one.

    • +2 votes

      Basically there is a specially coated element, a bracket and a quiet boil ring and these act together to reduce noise by up to 10dB compared to a non-coated model.

      If it's not maintained then it isn't unusual for the effectiveness to reduce by around 5dB and this can end up being a lot of noise particularly at the peak.

      So make sure you regularly descale the kettle and it should be fine.

      Remember the noise also depends on the power output - A $10 might be less powerful and thus it isn't going to make as much noise to begin with. Most of the $10 ones are also plastic and that affects how much noise is made as well.

    anybody had any experience with their air fryer - http://www.avancer.com.au/low-fat-air-fryer-1500w.html $89 with free shipping.

      yeah was thinking of trying too! how good is this?

      •  

        I was thinking of buying this one instead of the philips air fryer or tefal actifry

        •  

          the philips one cost me over 200 once just came out. Good stuff but.

        •  

          Do it!

          We get pretty good feedback from customers about this one all the time, I don't think anyone has left a public review though.

          Here's a few from when it was last on ebay though

          Op any special on this? stated dispatch on august ??

        •  

          @edgar28:

          sorry can't do any further deal on this.

          It's on a presale special with current estimated shipping date August 4th

        •  

          I can't find the air fryer on your ebay store?

    •  

      I have the exact same one but from Kogan, the only difference is in colour (Kogan's is all black).

      It's a great unit, the fan is a bit loud but nothing over the top. Does an amazing job cooking party pies with crispy pastry.

      The biggest drawback is the size and cleaning, it's weird and awkward to find room for. As for cleaning everything is easy apart from the basket, if you get some crumbs caught (in the edges of the basket) then they are a huge pain in the ass to get out.

      Quick conclusion - gets a lot of use at my place and as Rush once said 'If I had my time again, I would do it all the same' (shit now that songs stuck in my head).

    How long does it take to boil?

    Number one deciding factor when purchasing a kettle

    • +2 votes

      Don't have an exact amount of time sorry. Most kettles are about the same speed anyway unless you have a very high powered or fast-boil element.

  •  

    How does the temp control/keep warm work, is it able to keep it at a specific temperature alla sous vide?

    •  

      Programmable temperature control (40° - 100° C)

      •  

        Most likely not that accurate…

          I do like the idea of someone threading a fillet of salmon into the top of the kettle though.

        •  

          Just bought 1 I figure I might be able to achieve something if I combine it with a big thermos. Selectable temps are in increments of 10 degrees (-12.2 °C) according to the rep, but 50 is about right for salmon and 60 is perfect for chicken if you leave it long enough and is on the edge of medium rare for steak.

    • +1 vote

      you can select a temp in increments of 10 degrees and then set the keep warm to that temp

      Not quite sous vide

    Hi Rep,

    Any deals on a good toaster? I've had two cheapies blow up in the last two months!

  •  

    this is exactly what my baby needs, a kettle that keeps the warmer temperature fixed!

  •  

    Just bought 2, needed a good new kettle and got one for work as well :D

  •  

    Just bought,hope I might enjoy my tea this weekend :)

  •  

    Thanks Rep, just placed an order. My amateur mistake perhaps, but I hadn't read that there's a take5off code… can this be applied with the order in place? Order # 20062

    Rep on your website you state;

    The Australian Consumer Law (ACL) has introduced some new requirements with respect to warranties against defective goods supplied from 1 January 2012 in respect of sales to consumers.

    It's actually 1 January, 2011.

    Good to see you have this mandatory information on your site.

  •  

    Thanks Avancer! Just ordered one. Will go well with my double walled glasses I bought off you some time back. Loving them!

  •  

    Avancer is really good. Bought off them on eBay and my kettle broke and they replaced it very speedily. Every electronic product can break and they acted really well. Cheers
