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
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.
