The Kensington No.2 - Newey & Bloomer

The Kensington No.2

  • Since 1903 when Newey & Bloomer created the original whistling Simplex tea kettle the same artisanal hand-spinning techniques remain as they were over 100 years ago.  Incorporating only 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 2 Simplex tea kettle has a classic silver-plated exterior which is not only functional but exquisite to look at and will be a true showpiece in every home.

    Every Simplex kettle by Newey & Bloomer from the Kensington Collection is unique, proudly hallmarked with ‘Made in England’ and will whistle on boiling to let you know it’s time to stop what you’re doing and enjoy teatime!
