Care & Notes +-
Keep water level just below the centre seam.
Hand wash only and dry with a soft cloth.
Clean copper kettles with a good copper cleaner such as Brasso or Hagerty metal polish. Remember to polish the compound well, and do not allow it to build up around the coil and the coil cover. 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.
Copper is an exceptional material in the kitchen and, when maintained properly, should give you many years of service.
Have the flame so high that it engulfs the coil and run up the side of the kettle.
Leave water in the kettle overnight.
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.
