This is my second, same kettle. I used the first one for decades. Can’t imagine using any other…..a primo kettle and I love it.
Tops in quality and customer service!
Just as I expected. Fine craftmanship, outstanding quality that will last a lifetime. Exactly what I was looking for. My mother is very impressed and is thinking of one for herself, so I may be ordering another one for her as a gift.
First high quality kettle. Both functional and attractive! Kinda regretting that i did not buy the fast cook one ;). Very happy with my purchase though.
This is my second Simplex Kensington Kettle in 13 years. I absolutely love this kettle and wouldn’t buy or use any other. I am just as impressed with the company - especially customer service. When my kettle arrived just days ago it was packaged so beautifully - you can see that not only does considerable thought goes into the making of this product (by hand) but the detail in preparing it to ship overseas is exceptional. Newey & Bloomer’s Simplex Kettles are simply superlative.
