Breville Soft Top Pure Kettle is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 139.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid Performer We just replaced our first Soft Top kettle with this new updated model. And so far it seems to be built just as well and we're expecting to get many years of great service from this one too. The one change in this new design though that I'm not so happy about is the change in the water level indicator. The old one had a level indicator behind the handle, that would be illuminated when you turned on the power switch. For me, the behind the handle location as well as the light made it very easy to see how much water was in the kettle. With this new kettle, the water level reading is done by the clearish dual water windows on either side, which rely on positioning the kettle where there's light behind it, and since we put ours toward the back of our counter, under some cabinets, there's not a lot of light to be able to read the water level.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stainless steel that rusts It says to be made of stainless steel but this is my second Breville Soft Top Kettle and after having it for only a few months, it’s already rusting. I had to replace the previous one because of this issue and now this one is rusting in the same exact spot. I will not be buying another one considering a significant price tag. Loved it otherwise, shame it’s not up to the usual Breville quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and function Gorgeous design with matt stainless finish to match other kitchen appliances. The upright cylindrical shape is a bit different and appeals to me much more than the more commonly seen tapered or dome shapes. Front facing volume window is clear and attractive. Relatively quiet and fast with a nice little "ding" once boiled. Comfortable handle, large lid for filling, soft close lid. Not too heavy. My third of the same design. With age I have sometimes had leaking from the bottom seam of the kettle but Breville has had fantastic customer service - either sending me a replacement or offering me a new one at a cheaper price if it is well out of its warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product with one problem I bought this product 3 weeks ago and I was happy with it especially with the bell function - when water starts to boil the bell rings and it turns off - but unfortunately this function works randomly and doesn't inform me anymore, I don't know why (because I work in another room it's somehow important to me)... So if this function is important for you I don't suggest this product...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Level indicator not illuminated, difficult to read. We had an older Breville Icon kettle which had a water level indicator that illuminated when the kettle was turned on. This was super easy to read. This kettle, the "Soft Top Pure" does not illuminate the water level. IF your kettle resides somewhere with LOTS of light from above or behind, you might be able to see the water level. If it resides on the back of a counter, you need a flashlight to see the water level. Frustration built for several weeks, and then we returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of the product and delivery We are familiar with the product. We used the same product for last 8-9 years and decided to replace it with the same brand and model while the earlier was quite old. The delivery service was very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever This is our second purchase of the same kettle, the first we had for many years (it is still going but in my husbands shed), and we have also bought a third as a housewarming gift for our daughter, This kettle is great, boils quickly compared to many others, easy to manage and a great fill area. Would hughly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Switch and water column indicator housing trim breaks Like other reviewers, the water column indicator housing plastic trim on model SK500XL Soft Top Pure has broken many times and has been successfully reglued. This last time however, the switch also broke away from the housing and no longer functions. It appears to be a design or materials issue with this model since the water column indicator has been moved from the back to the side on the newer models. That said, the kettle has served us well for about 5 years but I may look to other options for my next kettle.
