Simplex Beehive Blenheim No. 3 - Newey & Bloomer

Simplex Beehive Blenheim No. 3

  • When it comes to tea-time, could there be anything nicer than enjoying a cup of tea made from a Simplex beehive tea kettle by Newey & Bloomer - the world’s most prestigious kettle company?   Handmade in England since 1903, the iconic shape of the Simplex beehive kettle, crafted by hand using age-old spinning techniques, is as popular today as when it was first designed in the 1950s. 

    Produced from only the finest copper – the best conductor of heat to ensure a faster boil and greater heat retention – every tea kettle is unique and takes over a month to produce and is proudly stamped with ‘Made in England’ on the base. 

    The Simplex beehive Blenheim No 3 tea kettle has a magnificent mirror-chrome exterior and will whistle obediently through the spout letting you know it’s time for tea!

    Please allow 4-5 weeks for your kettle to be despatched, as each one is individually crafted by hand.

  • 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

    • 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

    tea time in style

    We have only had the new teapot but a short time. It is lovely however, quite a classic. If I only fill as recommended it holds about four cups, I do wish it held a couple more. Great quality. Functional art !

    So very pleased with my new kettle!

    I purchased the Newey & Bloomer Simplex Beehive Blenheim No.3 (the chrome over copper version) as a gift for my wife. She’d had a Russell Hobbs electric kettle (made in the UK) that lasted for many years. After it went to “tea kettle Heaven”, she was going to purchase another but found that Russell Hobbs’ UK manufacturing was bought up by an international company and was no longer being manufactured in the UK. She researched kettles for over 6 months and found almost every kettle she’d liked was made in China. She ordered several Chinese made electric kettles and sent them all back! Absolute rubbish! After yet another exhaustive search into kettles NOT made in China, she came upon the name Newey & Bloomer and did some digging into the company and loved what she read about the company and it’s long history and reputation for quality made kettles. My wife got in touch with Newey & Bloomer Customer Relations and reached a lovely representative, Louise, who was helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. Louise directed my wife to some YouTube videos and answered all questions that were put to her. It is, in part, due to her excellent customer service that I wound up ordering this handmade, beautiful, well constructed kettle! It was made just for us and we got it earlier than the 6 week range we were given. It boils water quite quickly, pours like a dream to make the perfect cuppa and looks stunning on our stovetop! I cannot stress enough how lovely this kettle truly is. Hoping it will be the last kettle we own. With its quality and beauty, it will surely become a family heirloom that will be passed down.

    Blenheim No.3

    Outstanding kettle. Outstanding workmanship from a heritage brand. In this era of mass produced low quality products on the market, it is wonderful to have the opportunity to own a fine piece of kitchen equipment that will last, works well, and looks great.

    I LOVE my Kettle!

    This is by far the best kettle you will ever own! The craftsmanship is unmatched and the finished product is simply a work of art! I dealt with Louise on multiple occasions and is an amazing representative for the company. So kind and responsive and well versed on the timeline of what happens from order to delivery. I can’t say enough and would recommend highly!
