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 I believe amazon have now withdrawn it for investigation.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.
