It's no surprise that the Alessi Kettle with Bird Whistle has sold more units than any other item in Alessi history. Designed by Michael Graves in 1985, the Alessi bird kettle has a youthful personality and a simple geometry, allowing it to heat faster than other kettles thanks to its tapered stainless steel body and spout. The bird spout cheerfully whistles when the water has reached a boil.

Kettle with Bird Whistle is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Kettle I have my original kettle, which is almost exactly the same, from 1985. The mirror finish wore off and I decided to replace it with a new one. I tried others and there were problems with them such as rusting, needing to be dried after each and every use, etc. My new Alessi has a problem. When the metal heats up, it expands and I can not remove the cover until it cools down and contracts back to its original (snug) fit. I am hoping to have the cover replaced with a better fitting one or to return the kettle for a new one. As stated, I've had this Alessi bird whistle kettle for 33 years and have never gotten tired of it. It always worked beautifully. I've replaced the bird whistle that wore out several times. I was upset when the finish wore off, but I'm still hoping to have the kettle, in a new form, in my life forever. Now I hope customer service comes through for me. . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Coveted Kettle Having admired this kettle since it's introduction, I finally decided to have one! I'm very pleased with the appearance and quality. It is easy to fill and water heats quickly. The bird whistle is not as strong as I would like - it sort of makes a whooshing noise and doesn't really whistle until I'm taking it off the burner. Perhaps I don't let enough steam build up... Otherwise, this iconic kettle is just aa I expected and I'm happy to own it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kettle! After years of using electric kettles that died, on average after 2 years, I decided no more electric ones. First tried the Alessi Sapper kettle, but it wasn't big enough for my needs, plus it took forever to heat up. Also the whistle sounded like a freight train. The bird kettle heats up almost as fast as an electric one, because of it's wide base. One can fill it quickly by removing the lid, and despite reading about troubles other's have had with the bird, when I take it right off the burner when it starts to boil, then quickly grab the bird and twist it off, I've bad no burnt fingers. The secret if taking if off the stove AND being quick about removing the bird. Lastly, the whistle is sweeter than most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Kettle from an A++ Vendor! This is the second Alessi Kettle I have owned (sadly the first one, which was already quite old, was left by someone to boil dry). I recently replaced it and am so happy to have done so. Very sturdy, high quality and very aesthetic, it heats water quickly and I love the bird whistle. It helps to pull the whistle out quickly when the water boils as the steam is hot. The first kettle I ordered from Lumens had a defect so I contacted the company and they very graciously and quickly replaced the kettle. Lumens really does put the "service" in customer service. Friendly, no hassle replacement. I've bought from Lumens a number of times and they never disappoint. I highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could Michael Graves be wrong? I've had an Alessi teapot for over 20 years. That is until it was recently fried. Now, I have a new one and it's more fabulous than the last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from kettle with whistle Friend: New kettle not as good as Graves' one from the 1970s or 80s. You have to put on and take off the whistle. It can burn you, if you don't do it right. What was wrong with the flip up whistle? Not all that convinced that the new design is as attractive as the old one, also smaller in volume. Bring back the old one. Best, Ed Quill

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kettle with bird whistle by alessi I was thrilled that I was able to get this designer tea kettle on sale. I previously bought one as a wedding gift when it was not on sale. I lucked out. But the sales person told me I will receive it by a certain time and it took much longer to send
