This beautiful hand-blown glass kettle comes with a with a bamboo handle that swivels for ease of use. Designed to be a beautiful addition to any home or cafe, the kettle is perfect when brewing tea for 1 or 2 people. The teapot can be used on both gas (low flame preferred) and electric stoves (wire included for use with surface elements) and is heat resistant up to 150 degrees Celsius. Please take care to not boil the kettle when empty, place a hot kettle on a cool surface, and avoid hitting the glass against a hard surface, especially when the kettle is still hot. The kettle does not whistle, so please take care to not over-boil the water.
From the Manufacturer
Brewing the perfect cup of tea can only be accomplished with the perfect teapot. Glass teapots are superior to other teapots as glass and, unlike other materials used to make tea pots, is odorless and imparts no material flavor to the tea. Add to that the beauty of a clear glass teapot and you have found the perfect teapot for brewing tea. Yama Glass specializes in quality, tempered, heat resistant glass teapots and tea cups.

One thing I do now is to fill the kettle all the way so that the lid rattles when it's full boiling.
Also some notes on pouring. The handle folds down one way and the lid comes off easily. Because of the steam coming off the lid I always use an oven mitt to hold the handle. I also used a tea towel to hold the lid down. Also if the kettle is oriented in front of you, with the spout pointing left, the handle folds away from you. Therefore when holding the kettle (I'm right handed) I angle the handle towards me so that the kettle cannot swing from the handle. The handle sort of holds it self in place when upright but fill the kettle with enough water it will swing loose.
Other thing to note is the wooden knob attached by some sort of glue to the glass lid.
The pot is also variable in terms of the shape of the spout and the hole in the lid. My second kettle had both larger spout and hole. It did bother me a little after having used my beloved first kettle for its short life. Also there was more bubbling in the glass. So no two are completely alike.
I'll probably buy a stainless steel kettle next time. Or maybe just use a saucepan like I used to.
- NO plastic parts. Even the lid is glass.
- Nice size for one or mb two people. Boils quickly.
- Handle swivels in a useful way.
- Spout has a tendency to spit boiling water rather violently if you try to pour right after removing from heat.
- Cap has a vent hole that can cause steam burns if its oriented the wrong way and you're not careful.
- No whistle... you have to set a timer if you're the multi-tasking type.
It is lightweight and practical.
Heating the water on low does take a bit longer than blasting heat beneath my antique solid copper kettle, but I know I'm not getting any contaminates in my hot water, and the taste is worth the extra minute or two.
The handle does get a bit warm, but has not required the use of a towel or pot holder.
The second day I used the Yama Glass Chinese Water Kettle I was busy putting laundry away and forgot about the water I started. When I returned to the kitchen, the water in the kettle was calmly bubbling away - gentle boil. I poured carefully and had no problems with bubbling over.
I'm ordering more for gifts.
I love it!
Be aware that because there is no rubber or silicon seal that the steam can escape through the lid when handling the pot.
I recommend three things:
1) After turning off the heat, always pick up the pot with a dish towel while pressing down on the lid with the thumb of the same hand. This will prevent any of the hot steam from escaping and burning you.
2) Always put the handle at a 90° when heating the water. This will prevent the handle from getting too hot when you go to pick it up.
3) The kettle is very durable under normal use but never put the heated kettle on a cold surface. I cracked one doing exactly that. Amazon was kind enough to reimburse me for it.
