If you’re practically unable to function without a cuppa tea or coffee in the morning – then you’ll need a convenient little kettle to give you that much needed morning refreshment.
The Popup Billy Kettle fold up or down which makes it ideal if your caravan is a little on the cosy side – as chances are you don’t have the space for a bunch of bulky kitchen appliances on your dinky stove.
Use it to make yourself a hot drink, reconstitute a freeze-dried meal, or a pot of noodles when you’re out on the road and need an afternoon pick me up. The lightweight and compact design is made of food grade silicone so it’s safe to use, and features an illuminated automatic boil switch to let you know when your water is ready to go.
The perfect size for the caravanning couple, you can’t go past the Companion Popup 240V Kettle for portability, ease of use and value.

Nope, lucky colour blue is the one and only I'm afraid!

Hello, Does the boiled water have an a odd taste due to the silicon?
Angelo - Northgate(1 year ago)
Most people haven't had any issues with this. Those few that have experienced the silicone taste/smell recommended boiling clean water with it a few times to eliminate the taste and smell.

240v pop up kettle1 answer
Dose this have a peak wattage? as I have a 1500w inverter or dose it stay around the 1100w
daniel amos - Langwarrin, VIC(1 year ago)
The only information provided by the manufacturer is 900-1100W, so that's all we have to go off. It looks like your 1500W inverter will do the trick.

Pop up kettle (Billy)1 answer
Seems to have a plastic taste. Have boiled 3 kettle fulls and still seems to have the taste
James - Tanunda, SA(2 years ago)
Plastic water storage or water containers of any variety usually will have a taste to them for the first little while. That's just part and parcel of a plastic product, unfortunately. Rest assured it will go away with time, but to help that process along try cleaning with bicarb soda and lemon juice, it usually works a treat!

Would this kettle work using a 1000Watt inverter?
Sue Marshall - Kenmore(4 years ago)
Great question, but the straight answer is no. The 900 - 1100w the kettle draws will most likely keep tripping or cutting out the 1000w inverter.

Does this drip when pouring please?1 answer
I have seen another 780ml kettle from Innovations that is light enough for my parents to hold but it drips when pouring.
Michael - Kirrawee NSW (4 years ago)
We've got a few of the Snowys Team with this kettle and no reports of it dripping so far! Hope that helps.

Can i run this on 12v with an inverter? If so do you have a recommended inverter?1 answer
Popup Billy 240V Kettle Inverter?
Tim - Glebe(5 years ago)
Theoretically, you can run the Billy 240V through a 12V inverter, however, the inverter will need to be able to handle 1100 watts. Generally, an inverter that can handle this would be approximately $400-$500. If you're after a 12V kettle we do sell the Dometic Perfect Kitchen 12V kettle.

Is the silicone definitely same for boiling water?1 answer
I'm concerned the body of the kettle ie silicone is unsafe for 100 degree boiling water? Are you sure no toxic material will leak out into the water?
Hannah - Chatswood(5 years ago)
The food grade silicon in the pop-up kettles is a totally non-toxic material that won't leach into the water in the kettle at all. It'll handle the temperatures just fine. I have silicon baking trays at home that we use in our oven at well over 200 degrees with no problems at all.

I've just double checked this for you and can confirm that the Popup Billy 240V Kettle does have a stainless steel base inside, hiding the element beneath it.

How long does it take to boil a full kettle of water?1 answer
How long does it take to boil a full kettle of water?
Alyssa - Taigum(6 years ago)
I've just grabbed our display model. filled it with water and plugged it into the plug in our staff kitchen. It took 4:44 to boil from tap water temperature. It's a pretty warm day in Adelaide today, so in colder temperatures, it might take a little longer, conversely, in warmer weather it might boil a little quicker.

Is this suitable for overseas travel?1 answer
Lorraine - Melbourne(7 years ago)
You may need to check the voltage of the country/countries that you are planning on visiting, and that you've got the appropriate adaptor - but aside from that you should be good to go!Â
