Alessi 9093 B Kettle Stainless Steel – Looks amazing on the stove top

Wish the capacity was a little larger. However, stylish and beautiful.

Best purchase that i have made for along time. Plus saving me pennies to boil it on my induction hob.

  • Style and Performance!
  • Great kettle but silent whistle
  • Good service and product.

Packaging was slightly damaged however the product was in tact.

Love this kettle, the black bird whistle doesn’t whistle but i luckily bought the dragon set and these whistle well.

It looks so stylish in my new kitchen.

Great use on induction hob works as expected.

Looks lovely and boils water and sings like the birds.

I bought this kettle to use on my wood burning stove. At between £83 and £100, it is very expensive for what it is. There is nothing wrong with the kettle itself except a very stiff lid. You could easily scald your hands in the steam. Needs two hands and a pot holder to open it when hot. I had to return two because the bird whistle was so feeble it could not be heard in another room. The second whistle was even more pathetic. I believe amazon have now withdrawn it for investigation. I could not recommend this kettle because the bird whistle, though a lovely idea, is so disappointing. There is another german brand on amazon, made of stainless steel, holding 3 litres of water which looks just as good, performs well and costs only £20 or less which i can recommend.

Boils in under two minutes on my induction hob and has taken pride of place on my kitchen top. So glad i never opted for an electric kettle. I can’t understand previous complaints about the bird whistle not working or barely audible. They must be unlucky as mine is practically ear piercing.

The alessi kettle is so far the best kettle i have ever bought. On my new induction hob (1 month old) it boils so fast you can’t do another job while you are waiting and the family love the whistle to tell us it is ready. It is very stylish but also delivers on performance.

This kettle has been a fabulous purchase. Looks amazing on the stove top. We use a small gas ring, so that the handle does not get hot and this works really well.

Was bought as a present to use on an induction hob, the recipient is very pleased with it.

The emitomy of alessi design and a michael graves classic. I have the electric version which has some reliability issues – although not mine. For a gas stove this version is a classic.

Have owned two of these kettles up to now. They are a fantastic eye-catching design, look great in a modern kitchen but it tarnishes very quickly and very easily. What i have found is to turn the gas really low which does help reduce the awful tarnish marks on the sides and prolongs the life of the kettle.

Delivery was good & as described.

Excellent kettle & beautiful design. The wide bottom makes it extremely efficient when boiling on a gas hob. I tend not to use the bird whistle as it is stiff & awkward to remove when the kettle has boiled – hence the 4 star rating. It would be easier if it had a flip-up design.

This is just what i was looking for beautiful design i would recomend this kettle.

I love this little kettle it has brightened up my kitchen, so that makes me very happy it’s nice to look at and nice to use.

Bird whistle bit awkward to get in and out and dosnt whistle properly. In my opinion expensive for what it is, but does the job ok.

This is a really stylish kettle and an iconic design. Like other reviews, i had an issue with the bird whistle but amazon were great in replacing it. The first one i received as a present and the whistle did not work. Amazon were quick to refund my account so i could get another without the gift-giver knowing about it. With the first one i think the lid was not sealing properly and the steam was escaping through the lid. Make sure the lid is snapped on firmly – you should hear it click. It is not a loud whistle and i think the level of water in the kettle makes a difference to how loud it is. I find it works best it you don’t fill it much above the base of the spout. As to the complaints about it in other reviews – don’t leave it boiling for ages or the whistle will melt. Don’t try to remove the whistle while the steam is coming out or you will burn yourself. Do remove the label first – it peels off easily, otherwise it will melt onto the kettle.

Boils very quickly and bird whistle works well.

Design flaws – handle can get quite hot. It doesn’t always boil properly eventhough it whistles. Bird whistle melted on gas hob. Also quite difficult to clean. I would not recommend this kettle.

    Lovely kettle but the whistle broke after two years. Bought a new one and it doesn’t actually whistle. Emailed alessi, no reply a week on.

    Lovely kettle, great style, but the whistle doesn’t work – it just blows air with no sound. For something that otherwise is so well engineered that’s a disappointment.

      Small, looks kind of cheap, the bird doesnt go in and out smoothly and doesn’t tip back to easily let the water out. And it doesn’t whistle, which is the point of it.

      I owned the exact same kettle as this and i was super happy with it. It’s an amazing product and i wanted to get that exact quality so i decided to buy another one. But this time, it arrived in a box that looked about a hundred years old and though the exterior of the kettle looked ok, the interior was not pristine. It looked stained, as if there had been liquid that dried out. And i had a really hard time cleaning the inside to an acceptable degree. Also the bottom was scratched. So this was a bit of a fail. I didn’t expect this at all from amazon (as it was sold and delivered by amazon).

    In less than a year the kettle has developed a leak and the seller won’t respond to my emails.

    This product is a triumph of style over substance. The kettle looks wonderful but it is such a pity what it does not work very well. Although it boils very quickly, there is no whistle from the bird and the steam goes everywhere on the cooker. You cannot hear that it is boiling if you are not in the kitchen and you always need a cloth to wipe up the condensation afterwards. We will now go for something uglier but which works.

    After owning this kettle for a week and having used it several times a day, i am pleased to report that personally i am very happy with the kettle. I did stall from buying one after reading the mixed reviews on this site, but after a bit of research on the reviews posted on the u. Amazon site, which left me feeling more upbeat about my chances of being happy with my purchase, i decided to see for myself. Firstly i should say that we had been living with our stove-top camping kettle for a few weeks after another electric kettle gave up, so i already realised that a stove-top kettle and an electric kettle require different approaches. For example, i cannot leave the room whilst it is boiling on the hob, because i will get distracted and forget about it. The bird whistle on the alessi kettle is no quieter than our camping kettle. The only other whistling kettle i have experience of is my great-grandmother’s, which to my memory was louder, but was also 40 years ago. The only time the whistle hasn’t worked was when the lid wasn’t properly fitted on. Stove-top kettles on gas hobs do take longer to boil than an electric kettle, which has led us to measuring out what we need boiling.

    I have lusted after this kettle for years, bit disappointed with it upon receiving it. It looks great, but the whistle is barely audible, which is rather concerning. Feel a bit like i was sold a dud.

    I will never use this lovely alessi kettle, it has pride of place on top of my dresser with all the other alessi i have collected over the years.

        I’ve had my 9093 kettle since 1995, i use it every day and it still looks great. I bought a spare bird whistle in an alessi store in italy while on vacation because my beloved, old, toothless boy cat loved to climb up at night, steal the bird, and gum it. I still use the mangled bird whistle (it works) but old puss has long since departed this world. Yes, i let the water boil out once and the knob on the top softened and sits slightly a’kilter and the stainless took on a slightly darker hue. But the iconic design still looks as clean and marvelous as it first did. I use it on my largest gas ring because of its broad bottom and it boils quickly. Plan to use it for another 20 (or more) years. Ps i would never pick up anyone’s boiling teakettle without a mitt or hot pad.
