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 smaller than the kettle base. You still need to be careful of the handle when picking up the kettle after water has boiled. 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.
