Designed in 1938, the K3 Kettle was ready to be launched at the British Industries Fair in Birmingham in 1939. Unfortunately the outbreak of the war stopped these plans and the whole factory went over to ammunition production. In mid 1945 the Ministry of Production allowed development work to begin on non-wartime items, in order to prepare for peace. The kettle was finally released at the B.I.F. in 1946-47 under the trade name “Newmaid.” Winning numerous awards and accolades, this kettle is now a british design icon.
Wash in clean, hot water and polish dry gently with a soft dry quality cloth or silver cloth. Detergent is not necessary and will dull the exterior sheen.
