Simplex Kettles by Newey & Bloomer are the leading British brand for whistling, solid copper tea kettles – and proudly so for over 100 years. We continue to manufacture in Birmingham – the heart of England – retaining our superior reputation for world-class craftsmanship that is so intrinsically borne from our heritage, provenance and manufacturing traditions that have been passed down over the generations.
We select only the purest and finest copper and brass and spin by hand the traditional shape and ensure the centre seam is in the middle of the kettle – just as it was in 1903 - thus giving strength and stability to the kettle and purposely distanced away from the direct heat source.
Each handmade spout is lined with tin, delicately curved in just the right places with a little ‘bird’s mouth’ spout at the end – not only aesthetically pleasing – but to ensure a smooth, optimum pour.
All our kettles are lined by hand in the age-old traditional way using hot molten tin. This creates a far superior bond with the copper than modern-day electro-tin plating techniques which can flake and expose the water to copper.
Newey & Bloomer patented the Simplex Kettle design with a whistling lid – an ingenius design concept of the era. The patent was established in the early 1900s. Today, we continue to manufacture by hand to the same exacting standards to ensure the nostalgic sound of the Simplex Kettle whistle lives on for generations.
