Hand crafted from solid copper, the Richmond Heritage (Simplex) No.3 Copper Tea Kettle for gas stove tops is a true British classic design! Made in the United Kingdom, the gas kettle has heat retaining coil added to the underside of the main body. It distributes heat more efficiently to shorten the time required to boil water by 25 percent compared to flat-bottomed kettles. This lovely 1.7 L capacity kettle features a pure tin internal lining, brass fittings, and an ebonized beech wood handle. Using traditional artisan methods, each kettle's pure tin lining is applied by hand to ensure quality and craftsmanship. Made for gas stove tops only. Richmond model No.3. Handmade in England.
