Pioneer Tea Kettle


"Hand-tooled and plain gorgeous." — Calder Clark Designs

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!

Steaming Hot Tid Bits About Your Pioneer Tea Kettle:

  • A Jacob Bromwell® product 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. See how it's made here at our Factory Tour!
  • 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 features our proprietary hot-tinned interior. Considered to be a long lost art, hot-tinning is a manufacturing process pioneered by Jacob Bromwell® nearly 200 years ago. As a highly-skilled, labor-intensive process, we take sheets of tin and apply it through a process of heating directly to the copper. Hot-tinning makes each piece unique and historically-correct to the original design, and also ensures that your product is FDA approved and 100% food and beverage safe.
  • 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 and weight: 7.5 x 7 x 4.25 (inches), 3.00 (pounds).
  • Minor cosmetic imperfections may occur. Small imperfections are a natural part of the handmade process and lend charm, depth, and individuality to each piece.
  • This product is guaranteed for life. Your purchase is backed by our 100% Lifetime Guarantee, so you can buy with confidence.
  • It's proudly made in America. Still Made in the USA, even after all these years. Buy American and save jobs.

Absolutely gorgeous design. Watch out if you actually use it though, because that handle can get super hot!

I've had this kettle for a little over a year and while I have been very happy with it, I did have a little mishap about a month ago. After pouring the boiling water out, it was placed back on the cooling burner and a few moments later the spout fell off. It appears that the soldering or whatever is used to attach the spout to the body had turned back into a liquid due to the high heat. While this probably is user error more than design flaw, do be careful to not do as I did.

My sisters and I grew up on a farm, and we've been looking for a tea kettle just like this one. The only complaint I have (very, very, very minor complaint) is that it doesn't whistle!
