Alessi 2 Qt. Signature Whistle Tea Kettle

The 9093 Kettle with Bird Whistle became a household favorite throughout the world from the very beginning (1985). This sole design has sold the greatest number of units in the entire history of Alessi, and, furthermore, it has been cited in numerous design manuals as one of the ''most influential objects of the post-modern style.'' It is considered a forerunner to designs of today that incorporate a very ''playful'' approach.

  • Holds 2qt. 3oz. or 9 cups

Product Details:

  • Material: Stainless steel

About the Designer

Michael Graves

Michael Graves United States (1934 - )

Michael Graves is an influential architect and designer. He studied at Harvard University and taught at Princeton University while designing private houses in the abstract and austere style of orthodox Modernism. However, in the late 1970's he rejected this Modernist expression and began seeking a larger, Post-modernist vocabulary. The hulking masses of the Portland Building and the Humana Building both display his highly personal, Cubist new rendering of such Classical elements as colonnades and loggias. Though sometimes considered somewhat awkward, these and his later buildings, such as the Indianapolis Art Center, have been acclaimed for their ironic interpretation of traditional forms. It is this sensibility that has projected Graves to a star among designers, as can be seen in his many designs for Alessi that clearly depict a "new Americana," such as the best selling 9093 Kettle.

    I have always loved the styling of Michel Graves's tea kettle from the moment I saw it in MOMA, and it delights me to see it in my kitchen! This second one I bought for a new (Florida) residence, where I shall also admire it daily. The lines are not only superb, but the whistle works! What more could one want?

    Great design and function

    from Highlands Ranch, CO – Verified Buyer

    I have always loved this tea kettle. Great design, and it's large (we're big tea drinkers). We do not use the bird whistle - but I like the option of being able to have a whistle. We had this same kettle a few years ago, and had problems with the spout, but this one is doing very well. I like it so much that I bought a second kettle for our weekend condo.

    Great looks, a tad twitchy.

    from Redondo Beach, CA – Verified Buyer

    This kettle makes a big design statement. I love how it looks in my stainless steel kitchen. It is a bit more high maintenance than other kettles I have had. It won't whistle unless the lid is on tight. And if the lid is on tight it's difficult to open.

    Tea Kettle

    from Palos Heights, IL – Verified Buyer

    The design and look of this tea kettle is perfect. I have found that you can't touch the handle to pour after it is made because the handle is too hot. Not sure if it is suppose to be that way. But, I do love to look at it on my stove.

    from NORFOLK, VA – Verified Buyer

    I finally had to replace my 1985 version of this teakettle. I was so happy to still see the design and with only a few slight variations from the one I had. It is both decorative and functional
