Product Description

Hand made in England for over 100 years, Simplex tea kettles are both timeless and durable. This "No. 1" solid copper model features a high gloss finish, pure tin lining, solid brass embellishments, and a beechwood handle. A unique and attractive addition to your kitchen, it is suitable for use with gas or electric stoves and emits a pleasant whistle when water comes to a boil. Due to their design, Simplex kettles will never whistle on ceramic, glass, or induction stove tops.

Simplex kettles are manufactured to the highest standards combining the virtues and traditions of Victorian design and elegance with the innovations of modern technology. Simplex still follows the original 1903 mission statement, "to manufacture by hand, the highest quality kettles, consistently and without doubt produce the finest craftsmanship available."

When the lid is correctly fitted, which takes time to learn, and snapped in firmly, the kettle will whistle. If you have steam escaping from around the lid, then it is not correctly in place. You should be able to lift the kettle by the lid when it is in place. The kettles, when new, always whistle loudest with the whistle hole in the cap facing the spout. When you shake the kettle you should hear a ball rattle in the spout. Fill to the water line, fit the cap correctly, and the kettle will boil and whistle.

8-1/2" diameter x 10" H, with a 2 quart capacity

We could not be happier with this product. For this price we expected a perfectly-made tea kettle, and we got it. We can hear the whistle clearly from every room in the house, and the spout pours precisely without any accidental drips. We like the way the copper color mellows over time and enjoy how beautiful the kettle looks in the kitchen. It is a sturdy handmade product that can last several lifetimes.

This is a handsome copper kettle, made in England, nice workmanship, large capacity, will fill a big teapot with no problem. I love the kettle and only have one little complaint, which has nothing to do with the workmanship or performance of the kettle. The kettle came with a little sticker of the British flag smack dab on the top side of the kettle, one of those stickers that do not peel off easily, and I had the devil of a time removing it without marring the copper finish. One of my pet peeves-stickering products in a prominent place. If you look closely, you can see where the sticker was, and I find that really annoying, considering how much I paid for this item.

I have had my kettel for years and wouldn't trade it for any other kettle. I hate to clean copper. I initially took off the laquer because I wanted to use this kettle. I onlt wash it in soap and water and it has a nice patina that is attractive. The whistle is nice and loud and the water stays warm for a long time after it boils. Its perfect for a second cup of tea without reboiling the water.

Long story- I thought about buying this kettle after much research and time and when I finally bought it from amazon and got it in the mail I tried to use it right away. The packaging and look was everything I expected (beautiful) but when I put water in it it didn't whistle at all. I had to contact costumer service because I wanted to return it due to the no whistle the costumer service guy was so nice and helpful he's the only reason I'm giving amazon a close to 5 star rating. He explained the kettles have known to have problems with the no whistles and he said they were getting the old kettle lids back that won't let out asuch steam and will make the kettle whistle correctly. I didn't end up having to return it but I am currently waiting for the new lid ( which was free) and hopefully everything will go well. Honestly they were really helpful and nice I would Definitly recommend this kettle and if you have any problems like I did they will Definitly help you out.

I just received my kettle yesterday and definitely am not happy with it. It was well packaged but when I opened up the kettle to wash it, the inside sides of the kettle had black stuff on them and scratches. I washed it inside and out and still the black stuff is there. I guess it is corrosion? But the inside of this kettle is supposed to be tin. I proceeded to fill the kettle with reverse osmosis water, pushed the lid down flush, and boiled the water. The kettle did not whistle! It made a slight gurgling noise. For $123, this kettle is not worth it. I'm exchanging it for another, hoping that it is just this kettle. My mom has had one of these kettles in the chrome for years and her's is very well made and whistles very loudly. I will update this review if the next one is better.

The Simplex Copper Tea Kettle is nice to look at but that is where the compliments end. It is made of very thin copper sheet metal that is very light (nothing like the 2mm + thickness of Mauviel, Falk or even Baumulu - I own several copper pots that I can compare it with). The handle stays rigid and the lid has to be really clamped down for the whistle to work - there is a vent in the lid that creates the whistling sound - the rattling ball in the spout is merely to "seal" the steam from escaping so that the whistle works. At least that is the theory - I can get mine to work only on occasion - so that is a hit or miss. One has to be careful about getting water spots on the outside of the kettle - I usually fill the kettle only when it is under the kitchen sink spout and then shut it off when the water level looks right - this keeps from getting any water on the outside and minimizes any cleaning.

Where Simplex has really missed the boat is in the lining inside the kettle - after the first 3 or 4 uses, the inside of my kettle became black - this black residue would come off when I used a damp towel to wipe the inside of the kettle. Not wanting to ingest something in my tea, I sent it to a company for re-tinning. They hand applied a coating of tin to the inside of the kettle and lid (not the spout as it is too narrow) and after I received it back, have used the kettle for at least about 20 times ......and no black residue whatsoever. So for those of you who are experiencing the black residue problem, get your kettle re-tinned (it cost me an additional $80).

The kettle takes much longer to reach a boil when compared to other kettles that I have used - while this might seem to be contrary to what others have stated think about this.

Do not order this tea kettle! I ordered it and sent it back three times, because each time it arrived, the whistle did not work!! For the price of this tea kettle, it should whistle, especially since it claims to whistle. My husband also tried boiling water with it, I thought maybe I was putting the lid on wrong or something, but it didn't work for him either.

The first two kettles I had ordered from the same company through amazon (Trade Concepts I believe was the company name). After I'd returned the kettle for the 2nd time, spoke with an amazon rep and she said that a different company (Healthy Home & Kitchen, I think was the name) had no returns or complaints of a non-working whistle. So, I ordered from that company, however, the whistle didn't work then either. So frustrating, ahhhhh!!!!!

I really wanted to love this kettle. I grew up with this exact tea kettle (which whistled) at my parent's house, and so it's very meaningful for me-- I would really love to have it in my home now. Their kettle did last for years and the color is so incredibly lovely-- copper is just gorgeous. Is there any metal color more beautiful really, besides maybe gold? Also this kettle was a wedding gift to us, and so the great expense wasn't even an issue this time, but it's just not worth the money at all since it doesn't whistle. What's the point of a tea kettle if it doesn't whistle? In that case, you might as well just boil water in a pot.

If you are into retail torture and sisyphusian exercises than I'd say order this kettle but otherwise, save yourself the frustration and annoyance and order something different.
