    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 copper kettles with a good copper cleaner such as Brasso or Hagerty metal polish. Remember to polish the compound well, and do not allow it to build up around the handle and nuts
    • 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:

    • 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

    Nothing like a copper kettle

    Tea tastes the best and the water is hotter using this kettle against an electric one - fabulous

    Love at First Sight

    Not only is this a piece of art that adds so much warmth to our new kitchen but it works and sounds like a charm. My experience in working with Newey & Bloomer has been perfect from start to finish with my kettle arriving exactly as promised. Pretty amazing during these challenging times. Thank you.
