Made from near-indestructible borosilicate glass, Bodum's new Clara kettle makes tea time into a better-tasting and more visual experience. The non-porous glass doesn't give off any odors or flavors, which is a must for the more delicate white and green teas out there. It's suitable for use on gas, ceramic or electric stovetops, as well as for use in microwaves (provided the lid and whistle are off).
Overall, we dig the compact size, quality materials, the dash of color and the laboratory feel of the white text printed on its surface—who ever said tea time had to be precious?
The Clara is $60 from Bodum.
