Alessi Stovetop Kettle

Product information

This Michael Graves designed stovetop kettle comes with a small bird-shaped whistle. When the water has boiled, the bird sings. It has a magnetic stainless steel heat diffusing base, suitable for induction hobs.

In order for the bird to whistle, please ensure the water does not cover the spout otherwise there is no space for the steam to escape and the bird won’t whistle.

Michael Graves was at the forefront of architectural design since founding his New Jersey based practice in 1964 until his death in 2015. Not stopping at architecture though, the talented, self-dubbed 'general practitioner' of design also took the lead on interiors, furnishings and fittings for his projects; culminating in collaborations with household companies such as Alessi, Disney, Phillips Electronics and Black & Decker.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kettle Well designed and you pay for the looks. That aside it boils really quickly on an induction hob and the whistle demands attention. Expensive but you get what you pay for. 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic design with great features An excellent and timeless design. Easy to clean and pours well. Lovely mirror finish and it's good to know that, although you wouldn't want to lose or break it, you can buy the bird separately over the internet. Worth being careful not to handle with dirty hands due to the white handle, but otherwise a practical application of craftsmanship and beauty. 16 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Kettle Very attractive. Works well on Aga and gas hob. Good balance as has low centre of gravity. Polishes up well and is easy to descale, Watch where you put the birdie whistle - its easily mislaid! Lid is a bit tight from new and must be pushed right in for good seal to make it whistle! 12 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking kettle! I was getting sick of descaling my old kettle so when we got a new induction hob recently, I wanted to go for a stove top kettle to try and reduce the amount of times I had to. A lot of people say that stove top kettles take double the time of electric but I was determined to try it and although I can only comment on induction hobs, this is taking much less time to boil than my electric kettle ever did! It has a lovely whistle to it and it's design is deceptively big, holding a decent amount of water. I love the minimalist look and feel of it either sitting on the stove top or on the worktop with no wires curling round the back of it. Great pourer too! Recommend it highly! 29 April 2014
