Pete and I are Breville people. We are big fans of their small kitchen appliances, dating back to the purchase of our burr grinder. Pete is a coffee snob, who’s kidding who? I am too. Before buying our grinder, he researched burr grinders and discovered that Breville was one of the best ones on the market (in the mid-range price bracket).

Recently, we purchased our first espresso machine. I‘m not sure what took us so long, but it was definitely baby #3 that pushed us over the edge, haha. Of course we turned to the Breville Espresso Maker.

On the other end of the spectrum (a little healthier than our coffee addiction), we also have a Breville Juice Fountain Plus Juicer. It’s a fabulous entry level juicer, and at a pretty great price.

I really do believe Breville makes the best mid-range kitchen appliances. When you’re looking for quality at a good price, Breville is where it’s at.

Lucky for us, Breville contacted me a few months ago and asked if I would like to try their newest kettle. Our kettle was definitely on its last legs, so how could I say no?

Well, we’re in love. The IQ kettle is amazing. It looks gorgeous sitting next to our espresso machine.

Pete’s parents hail from England so a day rarely goes by that a cup or two of tea isn’t made in our house. We were pretty excited when the IQ kettle arrived and we saw the 5 different preset boiling temperatures:

  • 175°F / 80°C – Green Tea
  • 185°F / 85°C – White Tea
  • 195°F / 90°C – Oolong Tea
  • 200°F / 93°C – French Press 212°F / 100°C – Boil and Black Tea

From Breville:
With the pervasiveness of today’s coffee culture, Breville is helping Canadians enjoy café-style quality at home, with an appliance aimed at making the process foolproof, ensuring a great-tasting espresso with professional-quality crema, every time.

If Tea is your drink of choice, Breville’s IQ Kettle Pure ensures you will enjoy the perfect cup. The Breville IQ Kettle Pure was designed with temperature top of mind. Why? Different teas require different temperatures for the ideal steep. With the IQ Kettle Pure, you’re sure to get a balanced, full-flavoured cup that will elevate your tea experience.

We’re really happy with this kettle.  It just reaffirms our trust in the Breville brand.

*If you’re looking for a Father’s Day present for the man in your life, make sure you check out Breville’s appliances.

Disclosure: Breville sent me a kettle, as always, the opinions are my own.
