Product Description

Color: Blue

Designed by architect Michael Graves in 1985, this kettle is the first of a group of products designed in the 80's and 90's by the architect. This was the first group of products by an American designer to be included in the Alessi catalog. It opened the way for the playful design style that subsequently characterized the 90's, and thanks to an inspired mix of post-modern and pop idioms, it has become one of the internationally recognized icons of the 80's. Still the best seller since its introduction, the kettle is actually the product that has sold the greatest number of units in the history of the company. Body is in 18/10 stainless steel with handle and whistling bird in PA. Both whistling bird and lid can be replaced.

The plastic handle and bird look kind of cheap.
lynn thompson
Although, yes, this is a kettle and one can find a much cheaper ones that do exactly the same thing (that is, ...boil water).
NeuroSplicer
Not only is the design fun but it is also a great tea kettle!

It boils water. It looks pretty on the counter. It has maintained its luster. You can get your hand inside it to clean.
Beyond that it is just an expensive pot that doesn't have the usual features of a Tea kettle.
You can't pour water until you grab the hot plastic bird whistle and pull it out. With hot stream gushing out this is an interesting game. We went through a couple "birds" before we got one that even whistled and as many others have said, it doesn't sound like a bird. It sounds like the whistle of a guy who was just at the dentist. It also has a cheap wire spring clip and lasts about a month. We have some Alessi stuff. Some is good, some is like this, overpriced... way way overpriced. Did I mention that it is not worth the money.

You know it when you see it, there is no other like it. I use mine daily and have for more than 15 years. I've replaced the bird once, though I did buy several extras. The first one broke after only a few months, but the replacement has been in use for the balance of the 15 years. The shinny finish is all scratched from cleaning and the bottom needs a really good scrubbing around the edges occasionally. There is some mildew build up in the rim on the bottom. I wish I'd taken better care cleaning it over the years, so it would have stayed all shinny, but with splatter from all the other things cooking on the stove, it required some scrubbing. If I'd thought about it, I'd have moved it off the stove when I was cooking other things. If it wasn't so expensive, I'd get another, but the one I have was a gift and hard to part with. So, bottom line, it holds up well, does everything it's designed to do. The handle is cool to the touch, but you do have to remove the bird to pour, so wait a minute after a full boil, and the bird should cool completely before replacing it, so it doesn't crack. It looks beautiful for years, but you should take extra care to preserve the original shinny look.

I have owned this tea kettle for about 10 years. Not only is it fully functional as staple in my kitchen, it's adorable. Everyone who enjoys tea at my house comments on it. It is very durable, heavily constructed, and uniquely designed by Michael Graves. And of course, it "whistles". This is one tea kettle that you'll never have to replace; you won't be disappointed. It looks as good today as the day I opened the box. It's definitely a 5-star item.

I have owned, and used daily one of these kettles since 1982 and I love it. Wouldn't own another. It looks like it did the day I purchased it. I've had to replace the birds about 3 times, and once one of them did break after a few weeks. The other two lasted for years. I've developed the art of pulling the bird from the spout quickly and have never been burned. If the kettle is overfilled, the owner will risk being burned when removing the bird because of hot boiling water rising up from the spout. Do not overfill it. This is the sturdiest tea kettle I've ever owned and I highly recommend it for any buyer. Before purchasing it I had gone through several expensive tea kettles only to have them break or chip. This kettle is outstanding, plus it looks classically beautiful!

After frying my 3rd Alessi kettle,I ordered a replacement through Amazon from Urban Lifestyle. The delivery was very fast, the packing beautiful, and the product improved over my previous holdings. Great experience.

Color Name: Blue Verified Purchase
Because first of all this thing is 18/10 stainless steel which is somewhat hard to find in a quality tea kettle. second of all, this whistle is decently loud enough for me to hear throughout my entire house as long as everything is quiet. People may complain about the bird whistle not being loud enough, it is because you have to make sure the holes are positioned facing up and down and or make sure the water level is not too high. Also people complain about the bird whistle breaking, well it is because they are pulling it out at an angle which causes it to snap, when you pull out the bird whistle, make sure you are pulling straight. This tea kettle is worth the money because it will last you lifetimes and it is very easy to use. The ergonomics are perfect for me, the handle is positioned so you wont get burned unlike some other tea kettles. The other 18/10 tea kettle that I bought before this one was a chantel and the whistle was attached to the kettle, that whistle did not work and the design of the handle was inferior. Also this tea kettle was in the movie "Crocodile Dundee" I noticed it one day while watching tv. I bought the one with the ivory handle.

If you are shopping for an Alessi kettle it probably is for the design. The kettle itself won't boil water any faster or better than much cheaper kettles, but it is of quality construction and should last you for many many years.

The little bird sits in the spout of the kettle and whistles when water has reached a boil, but must be removed before pouring. The handle is sturdy and stays cool during use.

Amazon offered the best price I could find on this kettle and although a little high, you get a very attractive kettle that is built to last.

Love the design but watch out if you get a silent bird you may just melt and burn this kettle. May I suggest an English kettle that has a loud whistle. It has a homely look but is trustworthy. This kettle is chancy.
