The Marchmain Kettle – The Traditional English Copper Kettle
Made from the finest solid copper, brass and pure tin, this newly designed kettle is now
available worldwide. We are confident that you will not find a better kettle. By following the
simple instructions closely, your Marchmain kettle will serve you efficiently for many years and
of course, enhance your kitchen every day with quality rarely found in today’s marketplace.
It must be remembered that your Marchmain kettle will require regular cleaning to remove
tarnish and water staining which will appear on a daily basis during use (not applicable to
chrome finishes which require only an occasional wipe with damp cloth and light “buff up” with
a dry one). This is normal and we would therefore recommend regular cleaning to prevent a
build up of stubborn staining, but even this can be removed with our copper polish.

return your kettle.
* DON’T return your kettle for tarnish or discolouration as this can almost certainly be
removed with copper polish.
Marchmain kettles are entirely hand-made. Therefore no two are exactly alike and finishes may vary depending on the piece of copper used to create your kettle. Any minor blemish in finish can be regarded as an individual characteristic, which does not detract from the beauty or affect the function of your kettle.All models have a patented whistling device built into them. Part of this device is a ball and valve assembly inside the spout. The ball should always be free and you will hear this move when you raise the kettle to pour. This “rattle” is normal and does not represent a fault. If you do not hear this “rattle”, a gentle shake when the kettle is cold will usually restore the movement. Always be sure the lid is fitted firmly into its place before use.
