Simplex Kensington No.1

  • The original whistling Simplex tea kettle by Newey & Bloomer - The Kensington - was first created in 1903 - and continues to be handcrafted in Birmingham, England using the same traditional hand-spinning techniques that were first used over 100 years ago.  

    Taking over a month to produce, each tea kettle is made from the highest grade copper.  The Kensington No 1 Simplex tea kettle retains its natural beauty radiating warm, rich and opulent tones of highly-polished natural copper and will take centre stage in any kitchen.

    Every Simplex kettle by Newey & Bloomer from the Kensington Collection is unique, proudly hallmarked with ‘Made in England’ and will whistle on boiling to let you know it’s time for tea!

  • Do:

    • Keep water level just below the centre seam
    • Hand wash only and dry with a soft cloth
    • Clean copper kettles with a good copper cleaner such as Brasso or Hagerty metal polish. Remember to polish the compound well, and do not allow it to build up around the handle and nuts
    • Use filtered water, particularly in hard water areas
    • Empty any left over water after boiling and wipe the inside dry to prevent calcium (limescale) build up
    • Copper is an exceptional material in the kitchen and, when maintained properly, should give you many years of service

    Do Not:

    • Leave water in the kettle overnight
    • Put your kettle in a dishwasher
    • Let the Simplex tea kettle boil dry
    • Clean with any acidic cleaning agents
    • Scrub with steel wool or abrasive cleaning cloths/brushes or pads as this can lead to irreparable damage
    • As you can see below at around the 2 minute mark - The Buckingham No.1 is good enough for musical royalty!
