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.

We received a Kensington No. 3 for our wedding 23 years ago and just purchased a replacement. The kettle is visually beautiful, extraordinarily well-constructed, functions fabulously, and is extremely durable.
This kettle is not only beautiful with its gleaming chrome finish and style, but its extremely functional as well. It heats up water very quickly, the whistle is pleasant and steady, but best of all, it pours boiling water very smoothly and safely. I bought this kettle to replace a very expensive Le Crueset kettle that never performed to my liking. This Simplex kettle is miles above any other.
I ordered this kettle as a surprise birthday gift for my sister-in-law. I wanted to replace her current Simplex Kensington No 3 as it looked quite a bit worn. She loves it! And I really appreciated that the company put a rush on it so it would arrive on time! Thank you!
My teapot arrived in beautiful packaging and much more quickly than I expected. It was a present for my husband and he loves it! Thank you!
The kettle heats quickly. It is beautiful and the water stays warm for a while which is great! I love the whistle too.
