Needed a new bird!
ES from Debary, FL– Verified Buyer
The original bird didn't last very long (I make a lot of tea). I waited for a long time to reorder. Then I recently nearly burnt the house down when the kettle boiled the water away while I forgot about it. Now I have a new bird - it fits very tightly and is a little hard to pull out of the spout, but it whistles LOUDLY!

I love the tea kettle and the bird whistle, but I wish the red bird was a little redder. It was more of a burgundy red. Still beautiful.

I have the Alessi kettle and this whistle is so cute and makes the kettle special.

Great, but we've replaced bird twice
Greybeard from Highland Park, IL
We use the Graves tea kettle every morning, and love the look and feel. However, we've replaced the bird twice in 23-plus years. It just wears out. May be the convenient plastic material, but it would last longer in brass. When the last one broke, we stumbled along for a week piecing it together. My wife even suggested replacing the pot, but I really like the Graves design. [...] order two replacement whistles this time. This pot will last us the rest of our coffee-drinking lives.

my tea kettle bird replacement does not seal tightly enough. no whistle, just steam
Design Fanatic from New York, NY– Verified Buyer
After movers broke my bird whistle, I was ecstatic to learn I could salvage my expensive Alessi teakettle for just a few dollars. This is the second one that broke, though, so my only negative comment is that the design must be a bit fragile. Still, those two broken whistles were spaced out of 23 years!

We had broken the kettle whistle on our Michael Graves tea pot. All Modern had the perfect replacement. [...]Thanks
Found just what I needed!
Jackie from Potomac MD
After losing the iconic bird whistle for my tea kettle, I was about to replace it when I was reminded to look for just the missing part online. Found it!
About the Designer
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.
