Can I Put a Glass Coffee Pot on the Stove?

Glass coffee pots throughout the years have appeared on many kitchens’ stovetops and are a classic coffee-brewing option. Is it safe to put a glass coffee pot on a stove?

Stovetop Safety

When considering some of the risks of putting a glass coffee pot on the stove, it’s important to take into account the age of your model and the material it’s made of. If you are using a glass coffee pot in an older model potentially made with heat-sensitive glass such as Pyrex, you could potentially risk a break or shatter if the temperature is too high. It’s also possible that over time, the joint between the pot and handle could be weakened by the high temperature and cause a break.


To brew your coffee safely, consider the following tips:

  • Use only medium-low heat on your stove to prevent temperatures too high for the glass to handle.
  • Regularly check your handle and pot joint to ensure its still secured.
  • Frequently check the glass for defects, such as a crack or chips, which could make it less heat resistant.
  • Replace older glass coffee pots made with heat-sensitive glass, or those with weakened joints, to avoid accidental breakage.

In conclusion, it is possible to put a glass coffee pot on a stove with the right safety precautions. Just make sure to use a glass coffee pot in good condition and to brew on low to medium heat. If in doubt, it’s best to use an alternate brewing method.
