Glass tea pot...or is it a kettle?
I would love a glass teapot that’s safe for my stovetop as well as an efficient brewer. What do you recommend? I have an induction stovetop (glass with the burner underneath). Are there options where I can microwave the water inside the pot?
I have a glass teapot and it is awesome. It is harder to get a specific water temperature but you can generally tell by the size of the bubbles in the pot for how hot the water is. You need to use it on a glass stove top, as a metal coil will cause the glass pot to crack/shatter. I have never tried to microwave mine. I suppose you could, depending on how thick the glass is.
If your stovetop is induction, glass won’t work. Pots need to be metal and magnetic. However, if it’s just a ceramic electric cooktop and not really induction, glass will work but I recall it’s not recommended by the manufacturer of my cooktop — I don’t recall if this is because of scratching or some other reason.
