Clothes Boiler

I want water boiler but one without the element inside. I want it for boiling clothes in. Does anyone know where I can get one?

I've looked on the web but every search I do brings up lots of water boilers for catering, which isn't what I'm after.

Cheers.
Chris

Blimey Chris, what do you do to your clothes . . ! ?

Seriously, I didn't think that such things existed nowadays. My Nan used to have a brick-built one in the corner of her kitchen which was fired by, well, a fire.

Have you tried searching for "coppers," or a variant thereof. That's what they used to be called.

Thanks for the links Paul. It's the element that's the problem. I don't want it in the actual water bit. This one looks the most promising. http://www.brewuk.co.uk/store/ag-equipment/30ltr-burco-water-boiler.html Unfortunately out of stock and a bit on the large size, but we're getting there. Smile
The Gumtree one looks good actually. More what I had in mind.
