The original whistling Simplex tea kettle by Newey & Bloomer - The Kensington - was first created in 1903 - and continues to be handcrafted in Birmingham, England using the same traditional hand-spinning techniques that were first used over 100 years ago.
Taking over a month to produce, each tea kettle is made from the highest grade copper. The Kensington No 1 Simplex tea kettle retains its natural beauty radiating warm, rich and opulent tones of highly-polished natural copper and will take centre stage in any kitchen.
Every Simplex kettle by Newey & Bloomer from the Kensington Collection is unique, proudly hallmarked with ‘Made in England’ and will whistle on boiling to let you know it’s time for tea!
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.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for your kettle to be despatched, as each one is individually crafted by hand.

Great tea kettle and well worth the money.
I love my new copper kettle. It looks so beautiful in my kitchen. I’ve had such bad luck with other brands so decided to treat myself with this kettle and it works wonderfully. The customer service at Newey & Bloomer is great. Louise responded to my questions promptly and my kettle arrived sooner than I expected.
I simply love the kettle. Works perfectly and love the whistle. Hope to enjoy it for many years to come.
Just beautiful craftsmanship. The quality and design are unmatched. This will be a heirloom item in my family, I have no doubt.
I've owned two Simplex Kensington kettles over the last 30 years, and then one day I was distracted by a knock on the door and burnt my last one. I purchased another whistling tea kettle thinking it would do, but it didn't. I just received a beautiful, shiny new copper Kensington No. 1, and I know it will add the dimension to enjoying tea that I have been missing. There is no more splendid kettle made with superb craftmanship found in the marketplace.
