This is a great gift for a design conscious tea drinker. The 18/10 stainless steel kettle was designed by Michael Graves in 1985. Graves is an architect known for his product design and Alessi is a product manufacturer that focuses on high quality design. The result is this well-known kettle with a whistling bird spout and a comfortable handle. It is very study and well built - it should last a lifetime with proper care.
The kettle is also available with a white handle and white bird, but we prefer the blue handle / red bird combination because it is the classic version.
