Contemplating boiling water is no less attractive than looking at a burning fire. This phenomenon can partly explain the current popularity of transparent glass teapots. Teapots, which have different shades of lighting, are especially attractive. In the evening, when the light is dim, they resemble night lamps.
But the glass body has a more interesting advantage. Unlike plastic or metal teapots, glass models do not interact with boiling water. With such a kettle, you can fully experience the taste of the drink, which will retain all the aromas of fragrant brewed tea. But there is also criticism of glass teapots - they do not last long. But this disadvantage can be compensated if you use such utensils carefully. Before you go for a glass kitchen "device" you should choose the right one. How to choose the right glass teapot and which one to prefer, we will tell below.
Models with a glass body have their own strengths and weaknesses, related mainly to the property of the glass itself from which the device is made. It is worth noting the properties of teapots:
There are also weaknesses in models with a glass case. Glass models are, in theory, subject to rapid breakage compared to metal or plastic cases. Tempered glass models will also not be as strong as the other materials mentioned above. But if you handle the equipment carefully, it will last longer than, for example, a model with a plastic case.
The transparency of the glass has another side - good visibility of the scale. The kettle will have to be cleaned more often than metal or plastic models, provided that the visual appeal of the "device" matters.
The problem can be solved by taking care of the quality of the water. You can use bottled water or after treatment with a multi-stage filter, for example, which has a reverse osmosis membrane. The glass of the device can be cleaned no more than once a year, since scale remains much less often after such water.
The glass body has good thermal conductivity compared to the plastic body. It is easier to get burned from a glass body than from a teapot made of plastic, which is also made of two layers of material.
The lines of this TOP are occupied by popular devices that have a glass case and are powered by electricity.
