Simplex Kensington No.3

3 reviews
  • It all began in 1903 when Newey & Bloomer produced the original whistling Simplex tea kettle.  Not everything has to change over time and the same copper spinning techniques are still used today, a tribute to another time.  Still handmade in England from the finest grade of copper – which is the best conductor of heat and ensures a faster boiling time and greater heat retention – the Kensington No 3 Simplex tea kettle has a hard-wearing, easy to maintain chrome-plated exterior will add a touch of class and elegance to any kitchen. 

    Every Kensington No 3 Simplex tea kettle is handmade and unique, be sure to listen for its distinctive and original trill and check yours for it's "Made in England" stamp. Purchase yours to share in our wonderful history.

    The Kensington Simplex kettle is perfect for use on both gas and electric stoves, please note that these are not suitable for use on induction hobs without an induction hob adaptor.

  • Do:

    • Keep water level just below the centre seam

    • Clean chrome kettles with a wet soapy cloth and polish with a dry cloth to bring back its shine. 
    • Use filtered water, particularly in hard water areas

    • Put your kettle in a dishwasher

      As good as my first Simplex

      I purchased my first Simplex over 20 years ago. It is used numerous times a day (we love our drip coffee and tea). It remained lovely to look but eventually developed a small leak along the seam. A few times the pot was left on the fire and the water boiled away, resulting in the whistle not working anymore, but that was our fault completely, not the products! Our new one is as beautiful to look at as the first and I am looking forward to another 20 years of use. Thank you for such a well made product!

      Excellent ketle

      It's a kettle. It boils water. It just happens to be beautiful as it does so.

      An iconic kettle

      Adore my new Newey & Blomer kettle, such beautiful styling and an iconic piece. I love the sound of the whistle when it boils, reminicent of times gone by! But best of all it's Made in Britain!
