Simplex Beehive Balmoral No. 3 - Newey & Bloomer

Simplex Beehive Balmoral No. 3

  • 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 1950s. 

    Exclusively available only through our website, you won't find these in any retail outlets anywhere in the world. 

    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!

    Each kettle is handmade to order, please allow 4-5 weeks for kettle to be despatched.

    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 run up the side of the kettle
    • Leave water in the kettle overnight
    • Put your kettle in a dishwasher
    • Let the 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

    Beautiful craftsmanship! The removable whistle is great to let the kettle dry quicker. Heats up quickly even on medium heat. The handle placement makes it so easy to pour. I never thought I would pay so much for a tea kettle, but it is so well worth it….and worth the wait to the US. I love it!!!

    Interior Designer and client beyond pleased.

    This was selected and purchased for an interior design client to be in a place of honor in a new kitchen. The Simplex Beehive Balmoral No. 3 kettle is beyond stunningly beautiful. The Client is thrilled with the selection and enjoys using it daily. As an interior designer, I am thrilled with this finishing touch. Everything about purchasing from Newey & Bloomer was an excellent experience. Emailed questions were answered promptly and the delivery process from the UK to the USA wax effortless via DHL. Shipping costs were also reasonable.

    50th Wedding anniversary gift

    The tea pot is beautiful. Heirloom quality. We are as pleased with the quality of service as we are the quality of the product. I sent an inquiry on a Saturday morning...and recieved a response...that day. I have not personally met Louise Wiilliamson but I can honestly say she is the type of dedicated employee every business would cherish. Her attention to detail and her personal care and concern with our order is impressive. Thank you Louise. Thank you Newey & Bloomer.

    When the beautiful Simplex Beehive Balmoral No. 3 arrived, my daughter and I were so impressed with its packaging, and information booklet. We enjoyed the history and are so honored to have a handmade piece, which will become a legacy for us.

    Beautiful and functional!

    It is a simple product that due to its beautiful thermal-dynamics, heats water quickly on the gas range, and gives me that very efficient whistle, if I am not in nearby range! Love its beautiful exterior!! Looks like a beehive in silver!
