This tea kettle is made of heat-resistant glass that can be placed directly on the stove top, as long as the burner is the same size or slightly larger than the kettle base. You still need to be careful of the handle when picking up the kettle after water has boiled. Instructions for use are printed directly on the kettle. The glass body is machine blown in order to achieve exact measurements and sizes, while the spouts and handles are manually attached. 

Made of borosilicate glass, the teapot will accommodate temperatures up to 450°C (842°F). Borosilicate glass is a strong material used in laboratories and kitchens due to its resistance to thermal expansion and shock. It is 17% lighter than aluminum – making pouring easier when hosting your next afternoon tea.

Use & Care

Pour water into the tea kettle and boil directly on stovetop. You can tell the water is boiling when bubbles churn vigorously within the tea kettle. Please note: You still need to be careful of the handle when picking up the kettle after water has boiled. When pouring water from the kettle, please remove the glass lid or hold onto it with a cloth between your fingers and the glass, as the lid will fall off when the kettle is tipped at a significant angle.

Also take care to hold the kettle's lid (with a cloth or mitt so you do not burn your fingers) or remove it from the kettle when you are pouring. If the lid does drop and break, a replacement lid is available for purchase.

Although the borosilicate glass is thermal resistant, sudden changes in temperature may still cause volatile expansion and shrinking that leads to cracking. Leave hot glassware to cool before storing in the refrigerator or freezer.

This kettle is suitable for use on gas or electric stovetops, so long as the burner is about the same size as the base of the kettle. Never heat an empty kettle.

The pore-free surface cleans easily in the dishwasher or by hand.

The instructions are printed directly on the kettle.

Production & Design

German inventor Otto Schott developed the first borosilicate glass in 1893 by adding boric oxide to the traditional glassmaker's cocktail of silicate sand, soda and ground lime. The new material was immediately marketed for laboratory and industrial use, as well as for the home kitchen.

The decades-old German company that created this tea kettle continues to innovate upon that initial design for the domestic market, and has won several product design awards.
