MY GLASS KETTLE STOVE

Happy day to all my dearest friends,


In my preceding article, I told you my reason for choosing the glass tea kettle.  To refresh your memory, you may click at the title of this article to bring you back to my preceding article.


The photos are taken, from different angles, to give an insight of the piece I have, which I bought upon the advice from a tea merchant in Penang.


It comprises of two portions as follows:-.


Glass Water Kettle


Using glass kettle to boil water for tea will be more fun as you can visualize water go from the cold calm to rapid boil in this simple easy-to-use kettle. You may gauge the boiling temperature from the bubbles propping out from the bottom of the kettle. It works well with the lovely stove shown below.







Alcohol Burner Kettle Stove


This stove comprises of glass tank with flat bottom, a burner stopper, tank base, stand and brass metal trivet. See the photos below for details.

alcohol tank sit nicely in the base.
 
                                                                          Metal trivet



                                                                                 burner stopper
                                                Before placing of the metal trivet


                                             

The glass tank, underneath the stove, is to be filled with alcohol as fuel. There is also a wick, usually made of cotton. The lower half of the wick is dipped into alcohol , which it absorbs. The top part of the other end of the wick extends out from the wick tube of the burner, which attached to the fuel tank. The top part of the wick is to be illuminated with either match or lighter before placing the stand ; its brass metal trivet and the glass kettle on the stove. The function of the brass metal trivet is to diffuse the heat so as to prevent heating the glass kettle directly from the stove. I love this stove not only because of its antique shape design, but the glass tank is also can be stably and nicely placed at the moulds of the base. Once the fire is lit up, the stand will then be placed at top of the base of the base, which is well secured to prevent movement. The metal trivet is also tightly held by the stand. Its superb designs add comfort to its users. After use, the fire can be easily put off by putting the stopper on the burner after the stand and its trivet have been removed.


The glass kettle will then be removed and let aside to dry. Simple and easy.What do you folks think? Any other comments?


Have some fun with this toy.


Thanks!

This is cool because it's not typical to make tea like this in the West. In other parts of the world there are often alternatives to electricity or gas ranges. Here in America everyone has their own stove or at least electricity for a hot plate.

Thanks for sharing your thought and experience, Jason. FYI, I have a hot plate and electric kettle at home. However, I prefer to use kettle stove because I want to the boiling water I want at the same time having fun.

A friend who had lived in Singapore once served me a royal tea ceremony. It was lovely! The only concern I have about this post is that the glass tea service seems so flimsy, I'm afraid it could break. Wouldn't want to see a fire get started or someone get burned with boiling water. Speaking of fire, don't forget to get the protection and peace of mind of a Stove Stopper. It's a must.
