The Alessi 9093 Kettle is made of 18/10 mirror polished stainless steel. It has a thermoplastic resin handle and bird-shaped whistle, plus a magnetic steel bottom that is suitable for induction cooking. This celebrated kettle has been a great success ever since it was introduced in 1985. Designed by Michael Graves, it is one of Alessi’s best-selling objects. It is simple and tasteful, but at the same time playful and fun, and when the water starts boiling the bird sings!
