A visual clue before the annoying whisle.
  [vote for,

A steam kettle designed as a scale version of Herons' steam engine which begins spinning before building up enough steam to activate the whistles.

       Aeolpile eh? Word of the day.   

       This is not at all what I expected. (shuffles off with much disappointment on face...WAAAAAAAAAAAwaa, I wanted a HERON Tea Pot. Blue, great, nice. no)

       Would it have ennough power to be geared to a pouring device?
