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.

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.

Color Name: Blue
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.

Color Name: Stainless steel with black accents
This is a beautiful kettle. I had owned the original for years and eventually, a year ago, bought this new "Special Edition" black one. Tonight, while boiling water for tea, the inside of the black whistle actually melted into the spout. Even if I could replace the melted whistle, the inside kettle spout is coated in now-hardened black plastic. This is a terrible design flaw and of course it seems impossible to contact anyone at Alessi in order to get a replacement.

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.

Color Name: Blue
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!

Color Name: Stainless steel with black accents
This is a useful and artistically beautiful kettle. The whistle is not too loud but it whistles. You need to remove the bird whistle before pouring the hot water out and do not forget to use a glove as the escaping steam may burn your fingers.

This kettle was considered a classic piece of modern art to merit a spot at the Musem of Modern Art in New York City (I believe the version there is the anodized one which is no longer sold in the USA).

If you lose the whistle, you can replace it for under $15.00 depending where you purchase it from.

If you do not care about a beautiful piece of art in your kitchen then this kettle is not for you.

September 24, 2011: I am adding this last piece of information to my earlier review from 2009. Note: it is very important that the lid is properly fastened to the body of the kettle. You'll hear a click to know that you've done it properly. If there is any opening from the improperly placed lid, the steam from the boiling water will escape up top and the whistle will NOT whistle. There is a real danger that unbeknownst to you, the water is boiling away and you did not hear anything, leading to all the water steaming away, until the whistle melt it is after all made of plastic) and the metal buckle from the overheated dried out kettle. Please take the extra care of fastening the lid to the body of the kettle until you hear that click.

I am so disappointed with this Alessi tea kettle. I ordered it for myself on a friend's recommendation who has had hers for 20 years. Well, they mustn't make them like they used to because after about 6 uses the handle broke completely off from the kettle while I was pouring out the hot water. There were only about 8 ounces of water in the kettle at the time. Thank goodness I didn't get burned when it broke loose-what a safety issue!. I returned it and will order a less expensive OXO.
