Tea Rex Water Kettle by Michael Graves for Alessi, Black w/Copper Dragon
The Water Kettle by Michael Graves was first produced by Alessi in 1985. An instant success, the kettle is now in a number of museum collections and spawned a host of similar designs by Graves and others. The Tea Rex version of the kettle was one of Graves' last designs and was in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the introduction. Made of mirror-polished 18/10 Stainless Steel with handle in PMMA and green dragon whistle. Note: Please use medium heat when using kettle. High BTU stoves will often 'burn' stainless steel and melt the birdie. As with all kettles, please ensure that there is enough water in kettle to provide sufficient pressure to make whistle work. Dimensions: 8.75" x 8.75" Capacity: 2 qt 3.75 oz Suitable for use with induction stoves.
