"But the things our lot have taken to enchanting, you wouldn't believe -"
-- Arthur Weasley (CS3)

Enchanted object which looks like an ordinary teakettle until an unwary person attempts to use it, in which case it bites the user.

Arthur Weasley turned up one of these on one of his nighttime raids, which indicates that they are Muggle items enchanted illegally as opposed to joke items one might purchase at Zonko's (CS3).
