This is the classic example of a product of “design” that is very nice to see for nothing practical. probably those who have designed never had to deal with a kettle. Difficult to fill as the entry hole is very small. When the water boils, the only way to pour it into the cup and risk the burn, removing the cap with great effort. Overall therefore, given also the disproportionate price, I would not recommend it!

Very good workmanship! On our induction hob, the water boils super fast (about 750 ml in 30 sec), faster than our previous wired kettle. On the power level you can hear a buzz, but this does not disturb any further, as the water is ready so quickly. The pipe is well audible throughout the house. We would buy it again and again.

. but for the price and from the manufacturer I expect more! It looks great – quite unlike most other water boilers – but has two drawbacks: 1. The lid is made of the cheapest plastic. and makes a & #34; Hell Noise & #34;. The second is not a disadvantage, because not to be overheard! 2. For induction, the boiler takes too long, as other induction suitable products are much faster! But if you can live with both disadvantages, you get a really nice boiler.

. You have burned up embarrassing numbers of tea kettles by forgetting about the “water on to boil”. . Until the unforgettable smell of almost melting steel hits your nose from the other room. You absolutely must buy this kettle. Since the invention of the whistle on tea kettles, and the popularity of them. . Seems this must be a common issue. This mami kettle has the best whistle i have ever heard in my life.

The shape of this kettle is gorgeous and as soon as you see it, it’s obvious why it’s called mami. It’s extremely simple to use. The whistle cap pulls off with no effort for filling the kettle & for pouring boiled water (use a potholder, of course). The spout works perfectly – no drips or spills. The handle is on top, not the side, so it doesn’t get hot. This is not just a work of art – it’s beautifully designed. I have an electric stove, so any of the small burners is perfect. Water boils up very quickly. But i do grab it off the stove the second it starts to whistle. Because omg – that whistle is horrifyingly loud.

after only very sporadic use in the last 10 months the pipe is defect. one of the 3 pipe leaves is canceled. thanks to amazon problem-free refundation. pity, the kettle I liked very much, but to replace the pipe every 6-12 months is too tedious.

a beautiful object, the whistle is very loud, beautiful to touch. Obviously, it should be washed externally repeatedly, otherwise it loses its charm

The boiler “explodes” each time on the stove. When the water starts to boil, large bubbles are formed in the boiler, which makes it jump up from the gas stove. Very dangerous product. Don’t buy this.

  • Looks and sounds great, works great on induction hob
  • Function and form, great kettle.

Mami Water Kettle

A soft and round shape for a kettle that could only be called Mami. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni and made of stainless steel 18/10, the Mami kettle was created from the author’s search of a new classicism in which harmony and archetypes were united. A roundedness to caress, an object of design which is in perfect harmony with the cosy atmosphere of the kitchen.

The Designer

Stefano Giovannoni

Born in La Spezia in 1954, Stefano as an architect and designer was taught by Buti at Florence University. In the early 80’s he founded the King-Kong Production Group along with G. Venturini. His explosive talent enables him to embody a complex system of ‘affective codes’ in his projects. This great approach won him the title of ‘Super & Popular’ designer in the 90’s. A technical designer par excellence he has industrial design in his DNA and the capacity to understand public sentiment like no other designer mentioned in this catalogue. His projects began with the “Girotondo” (1989 designed with G. Venturini) and the first transparent objects in plastic from the “Family Follows Fiction” series (1993). There is a huge number of his items in the Officina Alessi, Alessi and A di Alessi catalogues.

The company

Founded in 1921 as a “Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry”, Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products.

In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the leading “Factories of Italian design”, capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types.

Open to change and international development, Alessi at the same time has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of its area and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.

Alessigraphy: the geography of Alessi production

Since the Company’s Foundation in 1921 the Majority of Alessi Products have Been Manufactured through the Cold Working of Metals, a Tradition that is Kept Alive Today by the Skilled Workers at the Crusinallo Plant in Omegna.

Over time, Alessi also began to work with many other materials, such as porcelain, glass, wood, and plastic. A specific production method was developed for each one. Even when production takes place outside the Crusinallo plant, Alessi’s guidelines ensure the company’s original production quality standards, continuing to reconcile industrial technological complexity with an artisanal eye for detail.

The objects produced from the different materials are manufactured in various production plants across the world. They remain original Alessi objects in that they are conceived with the same design excellence and produced with the same attention to quality that sets the company’s products apart.

it looks pretty, and shines like a mirror, but as one comment points out, it’s better to avoid gas hobs, the whistle being quite vulnerable, on my induction hobs of course no problem

This kettle is the best one i have ever bought, so simple and beautiful in design, so easy to clean. Made really sturdy with a strong handle, doesn’t feel rickety like most do. Worth every penny and highly reccomended. Get one you won’t be dissapointed.

Very stylish kettle and quite noisy when the water boils. It is an excellent design product, the steel is of quality and remains perfectly polished. The whistle feels great! Easy to wash Elegant to keep on the stove always ready for use.

I have the kettle in use on an induction high field and it works perfectly! Something disturbed by other predecessor reviews I ordered it and found that by turning (even with hot boiler) the spout valve can be removed without problems and burning the fingers. Injection and spout through the same opening also take place without forgetting. The whistle is multi-voiced and reminiscent of a Canadian railway. who likes it. Me! The shaping, handling (not always guaranteed in Ales, see lemon press) and the duration until the water boils fully meet my expectations. 4 points because I would have found 50-65 euros appropriate for a product of this size.

Perfect boiler, but the price increase of almost 50% is covered. I paid 65, – Euro a few weeks ago. At the moment the price/performance ratio is not correct, the flute is only made of cheap plastic, even if two-part!

And works on an induction hob.

First, i’m super grateful to everyone that posted about the whistle/handle melting. Even though the instructions do note that if you have a gas burner you must keep the flames under the kettle to avoid damage, i don’t think i would have truly understood the risk without these other reviews. It’s beautiful and very functional and not made in china. That said, it does require some extra care. Per the instructions, fill about 1 cm below the spout. I have a gas stove, so the first time i used it, i put the flame on medium low. It boiled but didn’t whistle so while it was boiling i played with the burner to find the sweet spot at the lowest point on the burner where it would throw out strong enough steam to whistle. It was just slightly above medium.

A utensil that’s reduced to it’s most simplified elements. I use this on a convection stove top and it performs perfectly. The handle and whistle are a well insulated plastic. On a conventional electric/gas stove, i can see that if the kettle boils dry, the plastic material might melt. But with an induction element, that’s much less a concern. However, if the kettle heats to that degree, the mettle itself would probably also be unusable. Just as any other metal cooking utensil. That very situation was why i was shopping for a new tea kettle and chose this. And i’m happy i made this particular choice.

Alessi Design Kettle with Magnetic Bottom, Stainless Steel, Mirror Polished

We use it on an induction hob, looks as good as it sounds,.

I love this kettle and haven’t run into any of the problems other mentioned. It looks great and performs perfectly.

Bought this kettle to use on our gas hob, despite some negative reviews. I love this kettle and haven’t had any issues as we make sure not to put it on a large flame. It’s beauty is in its simplicity and this also makes it surprisingly functional and easy to clean. The whistle is quite different – like a harmonica.

The best tea kettle i was able to find. Beautiful design, exceptionally good construction, very loud whistle. Very easy to use, just remove the whistle and pour water. I love the fact that there is only one opening in the kettle that is used for water filling and pouring. This kettle absolutely works on the induction stove. It looks stunning, very contemporary yet very functional.

We have had 2 of these now and both have had the same problem with the whistle falling apart. . This happened on both kettles within a month of using them. Amazon have now refunded us on this item and we will not buy another one because of the fault.

There’s no doubt that alessi make some very beautiful pieces. While lots of people are familiar with the michael graves kettle, and even the rossi one, this mami kettle seems to have gone under the radar. I think that’s a pity; for me, this is easily the pick of the three. The photo that you generally see doesn’t do it justice; it looks like there’s some black blob in the middle of it. In fact the kettle is an elegant, sinuous curve (reminiscent of a french curve – for those old enough to remember what that was) that’s finished in a flawless, polished stainless steel. It’s quite difficult to get a sense for how sexy and understated a shape it is until you hold it in your hands. Secondly, while the handle and the whistle are equally elegant and understated, the high point for me is the whistle. I was quite unprepared for how delightful a sound it makes. It just sits there, nonchalantly, until the time comes for it do its thing, and then it launches into this outrageously loud tonal whistle, which is joined by a second note if you let it go on long enough, and then finally a third note if you haven’t got the message yet.

She’s beautiful, but a beak is missing. But it’s another story and another kettle. I fill it under the tap, leaning it. I don’t know when to stop. I put it on induction. Naturally I filled it too much, water flows everywhere! Sponge, it’s work. I’m boiling. The water boil well. Normal, it is used to boil water and it does it well. Sorry, I didn’t compare the speed with the previous kettle. It’s not a whistle, it’s a ship mermaid, a fog horn. It’s a false sound, unpleasant. Overly

This kettle is a piece of furniture. You leave it out and it shines, mirror the whole room. You use it and you’re less pleased. The beak serves to fill it as well as to empty it, the beak is relatively low, so the kettle can never be filled beyond the beak. When it opens, it removes the cap/whistle and there is no more beak, so it pours badly, with a certain inaccuracy. Prepared for induction cookers, it must always be completely emptied. Nice, in short and something more than delicate.

The whistle is loud but that is a good thing.

Alessi Design Kettle :         Looks and sounds great, works great on induction hob

This is a beautiful object to have in your kitchen and boils water efficiently on our induction hob, although my sister-in-law who also has one reports that it’s too slow on a ceramic electric hob. The only minor flaws i could name are that it’s not easy to tell exactly how much water is in it, and you need to know where not to hold the whistle as you remove it to avoid a burnt finger (this is obvious after you’ve got it wrong once). I won’t spoil the surprise by revealing what the whistle sounds like, but it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
