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.
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.
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.

“Prettiest, most stylish kettle I’ve ever seen, Style and Performance!, Functional & Elegant, Looks better than it is, So great I bought a second one, Hope the House Doesn’t Burn Down”
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.
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.
Love it but takes ages to boil. . Love it, arrived quickly and in good shape although it took 16 minutes to boil a full kettle.
