Alessi's best-selling item of all time, the Bird Tea Kettle marries whimsy and sophistication for a unique addition to your kitchen. Introduced in 1985, award-winning architect Michael Graves infused it with influences from art deco to American pop for a distinct design that remains modern today. Its earmark is a bird-shaped whistle, which cheerfully chirps once the water has boiled. The whistle and handle are made from heat resistant, non-flammable polyamide while the body boasts 18/10 stainless steel. On the bottom is a special reinforcing rib suitable for all heat sources, ensuring it's as practical as it is beautiful. Featured in multiple museums worldwide, it's piece of working art more than worthy of a permanent stove top spot.
