How to Cut a Glass Coffee Pot

Cutting a glass coffee pot can be tricky but with the right tools and safety precautions, it can be done quickly and easily. Here are the steps to follow when cutting a glass coffee pot using a traditional glass cutter.

Tools Needed

  • Glass cutter
  • Protective glasses
  • Protective gloves
  • Cutter oil
  • Glass vice


  1. Put on your protective glasses and gloves before you start. This is to protect you from flying glass particles.
  2. Clamp the glass coffee pot into a glass vice. This will allow you to create a straight, clean cut.
  3. Apply some oil onto your glass cutter. This will ensure that the blade of the cutter will glide smoothly over the surface of the pot.
  4. Score the glass along the desired line. Move the cutter in a straight line with gentle pressure.
  5. After scoring the pot, remove it from the glass vice. Place the scored line over the edge of a hard surface, such as a kitchen countertop.
  6. Apply pressure to both sides of the glass and break the pot along the scored line.
  7. Place the newly cut pieces of glass into a bin and dispose of them carefully.

Safety Tips

  • Always wear protective glasses and gloves when cutting glass.
  • Make sure that the surface on which the glass will be cut is stable and secure.
  • Never apply too much pressure when scoring. This can cause the glass to shatter unexpectedly.
  • Always score the glass from one side to the other in one continuous motion.
