Default tea kettle with spinning top

On one Alton Brown Good Eats show, he featured a tea kettle
that I would dearly like to find.

The body of the kettle was either brushed aluminum or stainless
steel with brass accents (rivets or straps) and with the
unmistakable feature of a top that rotated from the
escaping steam. Reminiscent of a Archimedes steam engine.

I have Googled myself out and looked through many pages of
tea kettles to no avail.

Does anyone have any idea who manufactures that kettle and/or
where it is sold.

Many thanks in advance.

Last I saw a similar design it was a Michael Graves (I think his first
name is Michael) design for Target stores. I got one for my sister that
had a doohickey that spun like a ferris wheel.

Hello Gerald,

Google works just fine. Here's what I found in five minutes:

I used the following search phrases exactly as indicated
(including the quotes): "Alton Brown" "Good Eats" "tea kettle"

The results are here:

The very first hit was a Slashdot thread about a (then) upcoming
Q&A with Alton Brown, in which queries were posted regarding his
"cool gadgets." Someone wanted to know about the insane
("rocket") tea kettle:

As you can see,a respondent mentioned that it was formerly

recommended checking the area of that
discusses Alton Brown's equipment. Looking there, I found the
following information at (scroll down to
the final item listed):

Make: Kamenstein Collection / Motion Kettles
Model: Rocket
Price: $70.00

When the pot boils, the top spins around from the steam
jetting out from the two rockets on the side.
Made of highly polished 18/8 stainless steel. Holds 2
Barclay's Coffee: $79.95 ($10.00 off if you mention this
website when ordering) $69.99 (discontinued, no longer being
made by the manufacturer)

I assume that's the kettle you're interested in?

There's a better photo of it on Amazon:

However, the "Kamenstein MKI Design World of Motion Steam-Driven
Rocket Kettle" has apparently been discontinued and seems rather
difficult to find.

Amazon no longer stocks it:

And many have posted it in eBay's "Want It Now" section, as you
can see in these Google search results:

But keep an eye on eBay, and perhaps contact the manufacturer for
more info:

M. Kamenstein Inc.
565 Taxter Road
Elmsford, NY 10523
(914) 785-8000

Good luck!

Its a matter of guessing the right way to specify a search
string when looking for subject.

Your last entry hits the button but at $70 I wonder how
much I want one. :-(

Good idea but a bit pricy.

Thanks for the find.
