Putting a Glass Coffee Pot on the Stove

Things to Consider
Before placing a glass coffee pot on the stove, there are a few factors to think about.
Temperature: Glass coffee pots can generally stand up to temperatures on both electric and gas stoves, though it’s a good idea to check to make sure the pot can handle the highest temperature setting of your stove.
Stability: Make sure your coffee pot has a flat, stable surface that won’t tilt or wobble, as this may cause the pot to topple off the burner. Always boil your coffee on a low to medium heat setting.
Size:Taking burner size into consideration is key. A smaller pot may not evenly heat on a large burner, and a larger pot might be unstable.
