A truly elegant way to boil 1.9L of water. The silicone tipped "steam stopper" leads steam up and out while the neck remains cool enough to function as a handle. Simply add water, put in the stopper and place on the burner. Ultra-stylish. The Chemex Handblown kettle may also be used as a beverage server as its nonporous glass will not affect the taste of a drink...hot or cold.
