This is now my favorite picther (carafe). It can go from boiling water to ice and frig without breaking, or cracking.
It's light weight and easy to handle. Which is great for me, since I limited feeling in both hands, and tend to drop alot of things. So far, I haven't dropped it. (Yay for me).
This is going to get alot of use. Looks elegant and yet practial even for grandkids.
