The English love their tea and they know how to make a tea kettle. Simplex tea kettles have been handcrafted in the UK since 1903 so this is a company that knows their stuff. You’ve got to be manufacturing quality products in order to last that long.
This Simplex tea kettle is known as the No.4 Simplex Chrome Kettle and is specifically built for gas ranges only. You can also purchase a flat based model which will work on both gas and electric stove tops but the advantage of this purely gas model is that it heats up to 25% faster.
This is a solid copper kettle with an outer chrome coating and an inner nickel plate coating. This tea kettle also comes in a copper version but when you consider how much work it takes to clean a piece of copper cookware then the chrome definitely has its benefits.

Other Things to Consider:
