Kamenstein Rocket Kettle

As much as I feel guilty drawing your attention to something so hard to find, I can’t help but mention the Kamenstein Motion Rocket Kettle, a tea kettle that alerts you when the water’s boiling by spinning rockets, spewing forth steam. It was made in 1999, and is sadly, painfully out of production and worth 5 to 10 times the initial selling price of $70. (Try $300-700, if you can find one. Big IF.)

Where did I find this remarkable device, you ask? Alton Brown used one on his True Brew II episode of Good Eats, which I only saw two nights ago. AB, I love ya, but how dare you dangle a ROCKET tea kettle in front of my eyes, and then have it be discontinued?? I cry many tears.

Rocket, one of the models featured in Kamenstein’s Motion Kettles collection, is made of highly polished stainless steel and holds 2 1/2 quarts of water. Located at its top is a rotating ring powered by steam produced when water boils inside the pot. As the ring turns on its ball-bearing base, a pair of attached rockets circle the tea kettle. In addition to providing amusement, the kettle’s revolving rockets signal users that water is boiling.
