Made of borosilicate glass that accommodates temperatures up to 450°C (842°F), you can brew your iced tea directly in this large pitcher. Borosilicate glass is a strong material used in laboratories and kitchens due to its resistance to thermal expansion and shock. It is 17% lighter than aluminum – making pouring easier when serving sangria on a Sunday afternoon or hosting your next lemonade stand. The glass body is machine blown in order to achieve exact measurements and sizes, while the spouts and handles are manually attached.
Although the borosilicate glass is thermal resistant, sudden changes in temperature may still cause volatile expansion and shrinking that leads to cracking. Leave hot glassware to cool before storing in the refrigerator or freezer. The pitcher is heat resistant up to 450°C (842°F), and may be placed in the microwave. The pore-free surface cleans easily in the dishwasher or by hand.
German inventor Otto Schott developed the first borosilicate glass in 1893 by adding boric oxide to the traditional glassmaker's cocktail of silicate sand, soda and ground lime. The new material was immediately marketed for laboratory and industrial use, as well as for the home kitchen. The glass pitcher is made through machine-blown glass and molds. This results in a uniform thickness that prevents stress on the glass, which can result in fractures and cracks. The decade-old German company that created this glass pitcher won the iF product design award for 2013, a juried exhibition and awards ceremony mounted in 1953 by International Forum Design of Hannover, Germany.
Serve lemonade, sangria or cucumber water in this glass pitcher, featuring a spout designed to catch drips. Stays cool even when holding hot liquids, so you can brew iced tea directly in the pitcher. Made in Germany. (more info)
