Handmade in England
Over 100 years ago, the original handmade Copper Tea Kettle was produced in England, and the British Royal Family received these kettles as gifts. Richmond Kettle Company, the "world's most exclusive tea kettle" carries on the Edwardian tradition of handcrafting copper kettles with each kettle still to this day hand-tinned, hand-spun and hand finished in the heart of England. Recently Richmond changed and modernized the design with a seamless body and spout and a true flat bottom that can finally be used on ceramic cooktops and Induction-compatible models are slated for production, along with the original Beehive kettle which will make a return in the coming months. Richmond Kettle Company products are made in the heart of the United Kingdom and are still to this day 100% British Made continuing their relationship with the Royal Family.

Prior to First Use
Rinse the kettle thoroughly and fill just above the center seam. Bring the water to a boil and discard. Do not be alarmed if the bottom of the kettle becomes discolored after the first use. This is the polishing compound used during the manufacturing process showing. This can easily be wiped off with a soft cloth once the kettle has cooled.
Cleaning and Descaling
Should you need to descale a Richmond Kettle, never use an acidic de-scaler such as vinegar, lemon juice, etc. as this will cause harm to the 100% pure tin lining. Never fill a hot kettle with cold water as this will also damage the 100% pure tin lining. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any part of Richmond Kettles. Purified and balanced drinking water is recommended to reduce limescale buildup over time.
Use medium to medium-high heat for the best performance. Always make sure the heat source and the base of the kettle are proportional in size to prevent damage to the copper material. Ceramic top stoves should be monitored as their lower height settling make it difficult to control heat distribution. Heating up an empty kettle without water will destroy it.
Over a period of time, the copper kettle will change color shades and develop a patina (a green or brown film on the surface of the copper, produced by oxidation). This is a completely natural process and does not affect the water prepared in the kettle. You may polish this away if you desire. Be aware that soft characteristics of copper mean that the kettle is sensitive to scratches. Use caution if storing the kettle in a cabinet or sitting on your stovetop.
In order to keep your kettle's original sparkle, we recommend using the Richmond Kettle Care Kit.
