Product Description

A truly elegant way to boil water for coffee or tea, this hand blown water kettle from Chemex holds up to two quarts of water. Featuring a borosilicate glass construction for long lasting durability, it features a silicone rubber ball steam stopper. The silicone tipped "steam stopper" leads steam up and out, while the neck remains cool enough to function as a handle. This hand blown kettle may also be used as a beverage server as its nonporous glass will not affect the taste of a drink, hot or cold. This work of art was designed in 1949 by Peter Schlumbohm and has been honored in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and in other fine museums.

8" diameter x 10" H, with a 64 ounce capacity

No more metallic taste.

Even on my gas stove, the neck of the kettle stays cool enough to grasp right away.

The good - The kettle is glass so you don't get a metallic taste. It is also quite nice to be able to easily see how much water is in the kettle.

The bad - It doesn't mention it in the description but you're not supposed to put the stove on high when using this kettle. So my 18,000 BTU gas burner - which can bring a metal kettleful of water to a boil in about a minute - has to limp along and slowly heat the water for 5-7 minutes in this thing.

Also, the silicone rubber ball steam stopper also doesn't work on a gas range. Well actually it sort of works - with the stopper in the neck is too hot to touch and without the stopper in it is WAY too hot to touch. The problem is that the shape of the kettle pulls the hot air up from the burner around the base and onto the neck - I can (ever so briefly) feel the flow with my hand.

Lastly, the actual mechanics of pouring out the liquid are somewhat faulty. Unlike a normal kettle with the handle on one side where the water is just begging to be poured, you kind of have to fight with the Chemex to tilt it forward to pour out the spout. But even worse, because you grip the neck above the bowl - the extremely HOT bowl - there is a good chance of burning your arm as you tilt it forward.

So...I bought the Chemex kettle for two reasons. One was to heat water for making coffee in my Chemex coffeemaker and the other was to be a 'safer' kettle for my daughter to make herself hot tea. It is feeble at the first task and is a potentially catastrophic failure at the second.

I've been searching for a long time for a quality glass kettle. The Chemex kettle functions really well, heating water quickly by exposing a large surface area to the heat so that it doesn't need to diffuse too long. It also pours really well. It sounds obvious, but I've bought expensive kettles and pots with faulty spouts, and cost is no guarantee of functionality.

On top of being really functional, it looks awesome and is a real attention-grabber.

This is a very nice water kettle and looks very nice on the stove with the Chemex coffee pot. It works like one would expect any water kettle to work, in other words, it gets hot and you don't want to be grabbing it with bare hands. I use rubber-lined hot pads when I lift it from the stove to pour the hot water into the Chemex coffee pot, just like I did with my stainless steel water kettle. I've read in other reviews of this product that people are trying to lift it with their bare hands, not a good idea at all when you're dealing with a half gallon of boiling water. Glass gets hot. It's a great product and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get rid of plastic and stainless steel that leaks around the pour spout.

This Kettle boils water really well. Use it in a propane outdoor cooker. Boils water fast. Great product. No metal leaching or plastic in the water which is why I bought it.

My Chemex and I became very close about a year ago, so I started using my tea kettle an obscene amount. I'm a bit of a clean freak so I started to clean my tea kettle once a month, but that only seemed to complicate things because my kettle started to rust. I began my quest for a glass kettle only to find most of them performed poorly after a few months (shattered), so I quickly gave up. I accidentally found the Chemex Glass Kettle on a blog last month and knew, without hesitation, I had found my kettle.

The kettle doesn't come with any instructions, which I know sounds silly, but this thing NEEDS instructions. Mr. MVP Googled the bejesus out of it and we finally ended up on Chemex's website where there are drawings. Here is the lowdown:

1. Fill it up with 8 cups of water (2 quarts).
2. Place the steam diverter (the plastic stick with the two rubber balls on the ends) firmly into the stem/handle.
3. Put the kettle on the stove and turn the burner on high.
*A note to people using a GAS stove - DO NOT TOUCH THE STEM/HANDLE. We tried the kettle on my parents' stove (gas) and the stem/handle was burning hot, but on our own stove (electric) the stem/handle was cool and I could easily pick the kettle up and pour water while it was still boiling.
** A note to people using an ELECTRIC stove with regular coiled burners - The Chemex Wire Grid is mandatory for using the kettle on the stove or it will crack.
4. Wait for the water to boil. (Again, see * above.)
5. Leave the steam diverter in and pour water out of the spout on the side of the kettle!

I am in love with this kettle. My water doesn't taste metallic anymore and as a fun bonus the kettle looks amazing sitting on my stove top!

I have had this for less than a week, and love it. I almost didn't buy it after reading a view that made it sound like it didn't work well on a gas stove. But I loved the design so much, I decided I didn't care. I was stunned when it began boiling very quickly on a low flame (I was heeding the reviewers instruction about a low flame, but didn't see those instructions on the box or insert), the neck was barely warm so caused no problems using it with my bare hands, and the pour is fabulous. No awkwardness or drip. I cannot remember ever having a teapot with such a dripless pour. Plus, it is simply beautiful in my kitchen. Honestly, I cannot imagine how the reviewer had an experience so polar opposite to mine using this same item: it doesn't seem plausible to me, unless he or she did something wrong, but I can't imagine what that would be.

UPDATE: Now that I've used this water kettle everyday for almost 2 months, I feel compelled to report that I've had absolutely no problems. I also find I do not have to use a low flame to heat water. I put it on a medium-low flame, and the water boils really fast. I suspect I could use an even higher flame, but one of the reviews here sort of spooked me. I did read that it is just important you don't let the gas flame come up the sides, but I haven't tested a higher flame. I can just say that this is my favor water kettle ever, and I've owned some expensive disappointments. Plus, let me say again, it looks beautiful on my stove. Everyone notices it and asks about it. Also, no hand burning. I assume people must let it boil too long. But once when I let it boil longer than I should have (albeit, not for a crazy long time), it was still fine to handle. No whistle on this pot, so if you are the walk away from the kettle and forget about it type, this one isn't for you.
