Product Description

Product Description

Heat water up to 50% faster than traditional tea kettles with the Osiris stovetop water kettle. The specially designed base is built to focus the heat and assist in boiling water faster. The Osiris water kettle is a true example of combining design with functionality.

Amazon.com

The modern cylindrical design on this compact little teakettle makes it look like a museum piece—and, well it might be, as it was created for New York’s Museum of Modern Art shop by designed Carsten Jorgensen. However, this kettle’s form also has a function: its slightly wider base directs heat upward so water boils 50 percent faster than in other teakettles. In fact, it takes only 8 minutes to boil about 2 pints of water, although the Osiris can hold a maximum capacity of 64 ounces or 2 quarts. The Osiris is made of brilliantly polished stainless steel, which matches any kitchen décor. The pot has a lift-off lid on top for refilling with water and a stay-cool handle for safe lifting from the stove. The triangular-shaped spout doesn’t have a whistle to alert you when water is boiling so it’s advised to stick close by when this teakettle is on the stove. --Cristina Vaamonde

I owned the same kettle for 5 years. I finally decided to replace it last August (it was stained white -- water marks, that was all). The new kettle arrived and the handle seemed flimsy and loose. I tightened the screws on the outside. It worked temporarily. Today, one side of the handle fell off completely, WHILE I WAS POURING THE BOILING WATER! This tea kettle is dangerous and very poorly constructed. I would not recommend buying it.

NOTE (1/11/06) -- I called Bodum customer service and they very kindly told me they would replace my tea kettle. I appreciate this attention to the problem.

I love the look of this kettle, but the handle is hinged to the body, and when I pour from it the kettle swings back and forth dangerously; I've burned myself a couple of times. It's a shame that such care was taken with the aesthetics when the functional design is so poor.

I have just purchased this piece of MOMA stovetop functional art for the second time. The first one I got is still at work on my stovetop at home #1 after more years than I can remember - when was this Bodum classic designed? It is still as beautiful and functional as the first day I got it! Now I have one for home #2 as well. I checked out every other tea kettle on the market and non can compare to the clean elegant lines and simple straight forward response to the task of boiling water. The Osiris tea kettle has beauty combined with utility,"beautility", in a word. Not bad for a modest piece of kitchen cookware, huh?

This is the second kettle of this model that we bought. The old one has been burned without water so many times that finally the handle melted. The Bodum kettle is almost indestructable if you forget to take it off the stove for say... an hour. It has literally been red hot several times due to carelessness on our part. Nonetheless, It never leaked, cracked, or distorted. It always cleans up like new, and boils water faster than most other kettles. It is simplicity and function. Nothing more, nothing less. If you want a great looking kettle that you just cannot break, this is it.

I wanted an attractive, easy-to-clean, non-whistling water kettle. This appears and feels quite solid and attractive. However I had mistakenly thought from the picture that the bottom was a solid metal disc. It's not, there is a rim that reaches out, presumably to trap extra heat. However the rim prevents the bottom of the pot from touching the surface of my flat top electric stove (which I love) and this kettle took forever to heat to boiling. After a month we gave up and gave it away. If you have a different type of stove it will probably work well for you.

By the way, if you get mineral deposits inside your kettle, just spray it weekly with a 50-50 white vinegar and water solution, wipe off the deposits, and rinse well. If the deposits have been there a long time, pour in full strength vinegar and let it sit and soak until the deposits loosen.

After looking at 20 or so kettles, I decided on the Bodum Osiris Stovetop Teakettle for it's unique design. Here were my problems the first week in using it:

1. Handle is extremely hot - a mitt is required.
2. Hinges on handle are extremely dangerous - while pouring, the kettle may swing from side-to-side - not good when you are pouring boiling hot water.
3. Due to the open-spout design, it takes slightly longer for the water to come to a boil.
4. The handle in general was designed poorly - once the water gets hot, it contracts and falls to a side, thus literally melting the handle since it is not heat proof. Mine melted on both sides the first week.

I am a fan of many Bodum products...just not this one. Bodum should consider redesigning it for consumer safety.

Soon after I received this teakettle, the handle broke off. Amazon wouldn't give me a refund, so now I have to file a claim with my credit card company. Thanks Amazon!
