Simplex Kensington No.3 - Newey & Bloomer

Simplex Kensington No.3

  • 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. 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 adapter.

    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.

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

      Fabulous

      I was so pleased my new teapot arrived. I currently have a Simplex that is 25 years old and I love it. However it has been so abused, it was time for an upgrade. The quality is excellent and workmanship is beautiful. I intend to have this one for 25 years! I am never disappointed with this company and their fine products.

      Simply the Best

      Received my Newey & Bloomer Simplex Kensington No. 3 (the "Kettle") about two (2) weeks ago. The Kettle is beautiful, functional and I could not be happier with my purchase. Worth the wait too - as the craftsmanship is perfection. Would be remiss if I did not mention that Louise, in customer service, was wonderful to communicate with as well. Thank you Newey & Bloomer. .

      Worth every penny

      Beautiful, solidly made, lid fits perfectly and the whistle is lovely. We use it every day for morning coffee and afternoon tea. It sits out on the cooktop as a decorative and practical part of the kitchen.
