As functional as it is attractive, our Pioneer Tea Kettle is handcrafted from pure copper, and is ideal for heating water for coffee, tea, or cocoa. A true collector's item you can actually use, it's made the same way it was hundreds of years ago. Pioneers carried them in their covered wagons, so they could savor a hot drink to wake up in the morning, or relax in the evening after exploring the unsettled West. Just be sure to use a kitchen glove when lifting by the handle, as the copper will be hotter than you might ever imagine!
ENGRAVING AVAILABLE for additional $150. There is a 30 Character Limit; type your desired engraving into the Order Notes section during checkout.
Copper is an investment for life. Copper is sky-high on the commodities market today, and there are up to five red-blooded American workers involved in the creation of this copper masterpiece. Every step in our unique manufacturing process is still done by hand. It's a passion our company is unwilling to give up.
A Jacob Bromwell® original design. Bromwell is the original manufacturer of these quality copper tea kettles! Other companies may imitate the original Bromwell design. None are made as well, and none have the history to back them up.
Both decorative and functional. This is identical to the early American tea pot and holds approximately 6 cups (36 ounces). It works over an open fire, as well as a stove top (gas, wood, or electric).
Heats water fast! Works great for heating water fast due to its large bottom surface area.
Made of pure, solid copper and hot-tinned on the inside. We still use the same historically-correct techniques for corrosion resistance and FDA approval.
Do not boil dry. If the tea kettle is boiled dry, it will cause the seams to leak. If boiling water, always keep at least a couple of inches of water in the kettle.
Copper will never rust. Copper is resistant to corrosion and will never rust. If left untreated, the copper finish will naturally oxidize and age beautifully. You can polish it up to restore its shiny finish, or let it earn a beautiful patina.
Product care: Hand wash only. Do not place in dishwasher.
Dimensions: 7.5 x 7 x 4.25 (in inches).
Minor cosmetic imperfections may occur. Small imperfections are a natural part of the handmade process and lend charm, depth, and individuality to each piece.
