How Newey & Bloomer became England's favourite copper kettle makers.

How Newey & Bloomer became England's favourite copper kettle makers.


April 24, 2018

Founded by Frederick Bloomer and Charles Herbert Newey in 1850. The pair began by manufacturing an assortment of barbershop fittings, bar tops and bed warming pans.  Using their expertise in copper, Frederick and Charles produced their very first kettle in 1903. They called it the Simplex Kettle. This kettle was a significant improvement, the whistle built into the lid represented a major step in the evolution of the kettle.  The boiling water would produce a rush of steam through an opening at the top, resulting in a loud whistling sound to notifying those within earshot. This became an overnight sensation and thousands of whistling kettles found their way into homes all over Britain.
