Simplex Beehive Balmoral No. 3

6 reviews
  • The Balmoral beehive tea kettle is handmade in England using age-old copper spinning techniques. With it's timeless design, it is as popular today as when the it was first patented by Newey & Bloomer in the 1950's.

    Each Balmoral takes nearly a month to produce with every tea kettle encompassing only the finest copper, spun to perfection, lined with molten tin and adorned with a hand turned beechwood handle – this kind of craftsmanship is so rare today and is truly valued by our loyal customers.

    Not only is the magnificent mirror-chrome exterior easy to maintain – the Balmoral No. 3 tea kettle will whistle faithfully through the spout when the time is right, just in time for tea!

    Please allow 3-4 weeks for your kettle to be despatched, as each one is individually crafted by hand.

    Newey & Bloomer Simplex tea kettles are all handmade and as such, overall dimensions may vary slightly from those shown above. 

  • Do:

    • Keep water level just below the centre seam
    • Hand wash only and dry with a soft cloth
    • 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
    • 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:

    • Have the flame so high that it engulfs the coil and runs up the side of the kettle
    • Leave water in the kettle overnight
    • Put your kettle in a dishwasher
    • Let your 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

    Best. Kettle. Ever.

    The kettle is always on in our house, so we decided to make the investment in a Newey & Bloomer. So glad we did! Water boils so quickly keeping us well “tea-ed” and my husband says it looks like a work of art on our stove!

    The perfect tea kettle!

    I’ve been on the hunt for a tea kettle for years - finally I have come across a kettle that doesn’t drip or splash out when pouring, whistle like a wounded animal or burn your hands off when picking up… Beautifully made, works like a charm and the customer service was great!!

    The Rolls-Royce of Kettles

    You put a flame under it and it boils water. It is very shiny. It caused gasps of awe and wonder in the Hymer Owners' Group, and now my motorhome tea will give just a little extra inner glow.
