Newey & Bloomer have been making the traditional, authentic and genuine solid copper Simplex tea kettle in Birmingham, England since 1903. Using the same traditional hand-spinning techniques that were first used over 100 years ago every kettle by Newey & Bloomer has ‘Made in England’ proudly stamped on its base
Taking over a month to produce, each tea kettle is made from the highest grade of pure copper. The Buckingham No 1 tea kettle retains its natural beauty - radiating warm, rich and opulent tones of highly-polished natural copper and will take pride of place in any kitchen.
Every Simplex kettle by Newey & Bloomer from the Buckingham collection is unique and features a coil base, designed for gas stoves to promote swift boiling and superior heat retention. When the water reaches boiling point, the solid copper tea kettle will whistle to let you know it’s time for tea!

Absolutely gorgeous copper kettle, genuinely perfect anniversary present for us kitchen obsessed individuals, looks as good as it operates, much lighter in hand that one would think, very sweet whistle noise, just loud enough but never overbearing. AND the best customer service I have experienced in nearly 25 years living in the UK, and trust me, as an ex-concierge I am a very hard customer to please! Once again, THANK YOU.
It was most certainly an investment but worth every penny. The kettle is well made, perfectly traditional and will likely last a lifetime. The service was fantastic with great advice and communication throughout. Huge thanks!
I ordered this as a Christmas present for my wife, but I was a bit late getting order in last week of November. N&B website said delivery would be 5+ weeks, so I figured this would be a belated present. But the kettle was actually delivered only about 3 weeks later, well in time for Christmas morning. It is so well crafted, looks perfect, even more beautiful than it appears in the photos on website. My wife was delighted, and this will be a family heirloom for years to come. Thank you Newey & Bloomer for excellent service and product.
Excellent - from time of purchase on line, I was kept informed of several points to remember. 1. Kettle would take about 4 weeks to manufacture 2. Delivery to USA would be as soon as possible after order completed. 3. email when on its way. 4. email when delivered! What more could I ask for? Oh yes, the kettle itself? Beautiful, beautiful and sturdy - just perfect.
Beautiful kettle. Looks simply stunning in our new kitchen. Definitely worth the wait. Recommend to anyone
