Best bottle cutter 2018 – [Buyer’s Guide]Last Updated February 1, 2019
Best bottle cutter of 2018
The “Total” indicates the overall value of the product. Many brands have introduced bottle cutter on the market. These brands have resulted in a variety for the user. These require that the consumers be well aware of what they are buying so as to make the best choice. You can make a choice based on the my list as you shop. Now, let’s get to the gist of the matter: which are the best bottle cutter for the money?
Test Results and Ratings
№1 – Glass Bottle Cutter
Why did this bottle cutter win the first place?
I really enjoy the design. It is compact, comfortable and reliable. And it looks amazing! I don’t know anything about other models from this brand, but I am fully satisfied with this product. The product is very strong. Its material is stable and doesn’t crack. I was completely satisfied with the price. Its counterparts in this price range are way worse.
Why did this bottle cutter come in second place?
I like this product. For such a low price, I didn’t even hope it to be any better. It’s decently made. This is a pretty decent product that perfectly fitted the interior of our office. Managers explained me all the details about the product range, price, and delivery. Seems that the material is good. It has a very beautiful color but I don’t really like the texture.
№3 – Glass Bottle Cutter
Why did this bottle cutter take third place?
This price is appropriate since the product is very well built. The material is incredibly nice to the touch. It has a great color, which will suit any wallpapers. It is inconvenient to use due to the size. I am going to get something different next time. I liked the design. We’ve been using it for 2 months and it still looks like brand new.

Professional Grade Glass Cutter Tool
The specially designed glass cutting device offers clean and smooth cut every time. It has a comfortable handle which is made by using the wood material. It is incredibly strong. It let you cut mirrors, stained glass, glass shelves and much more.
Ephrem offers a specialized cutter tool which is designed by using thicker and durable steel. It has the capability to cut the bottle in a preface manner.
The First Years Simple Serve (formerly called the Quick Serve) is the fastest and cheapest warmer we tested, but you have to add an exact amount of water for each use, bottle parts come out hot, and it can’t thaw frozen breast milk.
If you heat bottles only occasionally, or don’t mind extra effort for a slightly faster warm time, we recommend The First Years Simple Serve Bottle Warmer (formerly called the Quick Serve). It’s the fastest warmer we tested, heating a four-ounce bottle of refrigerated formula or breast milk in a little under minutes (our pick takes 5½ minutes), and an 8-ounce bottle in 4½ minutes (our pick takes minutes). As with the Kozii, you can heat multiple bottles in a row without a cooldown period. But you have to measure a precise amount of water for each cycle, which we found cumbersome—in comparison, our pick skips this step with a design that drains the warming chamber between cycles. The Simple Serve can’t defrost bags of frozen breast milk. And even when heating milk or formula to the right temperature, the bottle parts tend to come out quite hot and steam can build up in the nipple reservoir, so make sure it all feels cool to the touch before serving. Like the Kozii, and almost all other bottle warmers, the Simple Serve can overheat milk or formula if you use it improperly or leave it in too long.
Chicco NaturalFit Digital
We paid attention to how difficult it was to figure out the cycle settings. Some warmers only require you to turn the machine on, or select a bottle size, shape, material, and starting temperature, and then use thermostats to determine when to shut it off. Other machines require you to choose a time setting based on your own analysis of those factors, making it easier to miscalculate. Some machines require measuring a specific quantity of water rather than just filling up the reservoir, which also added complexity.
Based on these tests, we were able to narrow the field to two top warmers, which we then tested by heating bottles of breast milk (we had used formula up to this point). We first defrosted frozen bags of breast milk in the warmers, noting if they melted evenly and if portions of the milk overheated. We then heated 4-ounce bottles of refrigerated breast milk in each machine to determine if there were any differences in how breast milk heated versus formula. We found that breast milk bottles heated at similar speeds to formula bottles.
Flaws but not dealbreakers
Despite its claims, the Kiinde Kozii can overheat formula and breast milk. To be fair, this is true of all the warmers we tested (except for the very low temperature, and too slow Avent warmer). Because the Kozii uses relatively cool 140 °F water—the steam warmers heat to 21°F—the bottle will never get hotter than 140 °F. That’s way too hot to serve to a baby, of course, and it’s a temperature that may change or damage properties of breast milk, but it’s not as hot and potentially hazardous as those produced by some of the other warmers we tested.
Though the Kozii’s kitchen-timer-style dial is easy to use (you simply turn it to the time setting you want, such as between and for 5½ minutes), because it’s so small, it’s easy to accidentally set it slightly shorter or longer than you mean to.
The Kozii claims it can defrost bags of frozen breast milk, but we don’t recommend it in the Kozii or any other warmer. When we tested this, it took about minutes to fully defrost and warm a 4-ounce bag. But we found the temperature of the milk was very uneven during melting and warming; some portions of the milk reached over 120 °F while the rest remained frozen. If you’re concerned about not exposing breast milk to high temperatures, defrost it in the refrigerator or in a bowl of hot water.
Some people may find the loud ticking of the Kozii’s timer, which sounds like a typical kitchen timer, annoying. And, frustratingly, the Kozii doesn’t have a ding, beep, or other alarm to let you know the cycle has ended—the end of the ticking is your signal. The company told us it hasn’t included a beep or other signal because most people find the ticking itself to be sufficient, and some people use the warmer near a sleeping baby. We would prefer an optional alert.
You might be surprised how much cleaning upkeep the Kozii requires. Kiinde’s instruction manual (PDF) says that you should clean the Kozii every two to three days by emptying the water chamber and refilling it with about a cup of fresh water mixed with some mild soap. Swirl it around, empty, and repeat. Every two months, descale the Kozii (to remove mineral deposits) by mixing a half cup of white vinegar with one cup of water and pouring the mixture into the machine. Let sit for to 20 minutes, empty it, and rinse it.
Last, the Kozii is also one of the most expensive warmers we tested, but it comes with a one-year warranty.
The First Years was the cheapest warmer we tested, but worked better than steam warmers that cost two or three times as much.
As with most steam warmers, you’ll have to measure a precise amount of water for each cycle, which is less convenient than the automatic refill/drain design of our pick. The First Years warmer uses a small, fiddly vial that can be difficult to fill accurately, which may be a detraction if you plan to use the warmer frequently. It’s otherwise simple to use, with a single “on” button that starts the heating plate, causing the water to boil and release steam to heat the bottle.
The length of the cycle is determined by the amount of water you add, and the First Years comes with instructions that include suggested amounts for various bottles and starting temperatures. As with all steam warmers—and unlike our pick—the bottles tend to feel quite hot immediately after warming and steam can build up in the nipple reservoir, so you’ll need to ensure they cool down properly before serving.
Unlike the Kozii, the First Years warmer can’t defrost frozen bags of breast milk. It requires regular cleaning of the steam chamber and heating plate with soap and water, and the instruction manual (PDF) has a process to clean white mineral deposits as well. The removable plastic parts can be washed in the dishwasher; the unit can’t be immersed. The First Years has a 90-day warranty as opposed to a full year for the Kiinde Kozii.
The Dr. Brown’s Deluxe Bottle Warmer is a steam warmer that has been lauded by other reviewers like those at The Night Light and New York Magazine. Unlike the other steam warmers we considered and tested, which require adding water each time, the Dr. Brown’s has an attached water reservoir that lets you load up enough water for several runs. The warming cycles are controlled by a digital timer (you set the length based on the size and temperature of your bottle) that is easy enough to use. But we found the water reservoir leaked all over the counter if we tipped or moved the warmer even slightly. It also won’t fit very wide bottles like the Comotomo.
Philips Avent claims its Nutrient-Preserving Bottle Warmer is safer for heating breast milk because it gradually warms bottles with flowing warm water and uses temperature sensors to prevent overheating. But the warmer actually uses a stagnant water bath, similar to the Chicco warmers we tested. (Philips Avent explained that its claim that the water “flows” is because it is heated from the bottom, which makes warmer water rise to the top; this is basic physics, and it happens with all water-bath warmers.) The Avent warmer does use cooler water (around 100 °F at the hottest setting) to heat bottles; this is good, in theory, because there’s no chance of overheating the milk. But such a low temperature makes for a very slow warm time; after minutes, a refrigerated 4-ounce bottle had barely reached 80 °F. You have to add about a half cup of water to the basin, which you can theoretically use for multiple bottles, but if you want to run back-to-back cycles you’ll have to replace it with fresh, cool water.
We didn’t test the Philips Avent Fast Bottle Warmer because BabyGearLab found it quickly overheated bottles, and it doesn’t automatically shut off at the end of the cycle.
The Chicco Bottle Warmer is a straightforward water-bath warmer that looks like a tiny Crock-Pot. It has a simple switch—you can choose bottles or baby food (we didn’t test baby food). You dump in a half cup of water, put in the bottle, and turn the machine on. The warmer heats the water to about 180 °F, which is 40 degrees hotter than the Kozii, but it uses a thermostat to gauge when the bottle is hot enough, which takes out some guesswork. It took about minutes to heat a 4-ounce Avent bottle and minutes to heat an 8-ounce Avent bottle to 90 °F before going to “keep warm” mode. But it also significantly underheated several bottles, switching to “keep warm” when the silicone Comotomo bottle was at only 60 °F. You have to wait about 1minutes before running another heat cycle, which makes it hard to warm multiple bottles. This warmer wasn’t any faster than the Kozii. It was one of the simplest products we tried and it’s unfortunate the heating performance was such a weakness compared with our pick’s.
The Chicco NaturalFit Digital Bottle & Baby Food Warmer offers more settings than the basic Chicco warmer (you select both the bottle size and temperature), and you have to add water (or tablespoons) for each use. It rapidly boils the water, heating the bottle mostly with steam. It worked consistently, heating 4-ounce bottles in about minutes, and 8-ounce bottles in minutes. But it doesn’t offer any advantage over the First Years warmer, which is a bit faster and much cheaper.
We didn’t test the Boon Orb bottle warmer, because BabyGearLab found it quickly overheated bottles, and you can’t use it with glass bottles. We didn’t test the Cuisinart Baby Bottle Warmer/Night Light either, because it performed poorly in BabyGearLab’s tests and is more expensive than the First Years warmer. We also didn’t test the Munchkin Timer Saver or Munchkin Speed or Nuby 2-in-warmers because they are more expensive than the First Years but don’t offer any extra functionality.
Safely heating breast milk
Exactly what temperature is too high? Because breast milk is so complex, this is hard to answer. A study (PDF) from the 1980s suggested certain bioactive properties begin to change at temperatures as low as 10°F to 12°F, with more damage occurring as the temperature increases past 140 °F. Though it’s important to protect breast milk from heat damage, Dr. Thomas cautioned that even overheated breast milk maintains a great deal of its nutritional and anti-infective benefits and is superior to formula. When donor milk is processed for use in hospitals, for example, it is pasteurized at 144.°F.
Dr. Thomas also warned you shouldn’t vigorously shake bottles of expressed breast milk, because rough motion can also damage components of the milk. Gently swirl it instead.
Safely heating formula
Formula doesn’t have the same heat sensitivities as breast milk, but The Infant Nutrition Council of America told us that warming for all types of formula and breast milk should take less than 1minutes—that’s a measure only of the time that it’s heating—to reduce the opportunity for possible bacteria to grow. The standard guidance from INCA and the AAP is to consume the formula within hour of preparation, or refrigerate it immediately and serve it within 2hours.
The WHO (PDF) and CDC advise that powdered formula be mixed with water that is no cooler than 15°F to kill bacteria that could be present in the powder. That means you’ll need to initially prepare the formula much hotter than you could safely serve a baby, and wait for it to cool down (either in the refrigerator, in cool water, or in an ice bath). The Infant Nutrition Council of America says you can prepare a larger quantity of powdered formula in advance, cover it, and store it in the refrigerator below 40 °F for up to 2hours. You can then prepare and rewarm bottles as needed.
Liquid-concentrate formula (which you mix with water) and ready-to-feed formula (which comes in preprepared bottles) do not need to be prepared with hot water or specially heated. We plan to explore the pros and cons of all types of formula in a future guide.
Whether you’re mixing with powdered or liquid-concentrate formula, the water you use needs to be safe from contaminants. Speak with your baby’s pediatrician and local water department to find out whether your tap water needs to be boiled or purified before mixing.
Bottles of both formula and breast milk can be easily heated without a bottle warmer in roughly the same amount of time it takes our pick to do the job.
The first thing we’d suggest to anyone new to warming bottles is to simply place the bottle in a bowl of hot water, submerging as much of the bottle as possible. This uses much less water and requires less effort than warming it under hot tap water. We heated about cups of water to about 150 °F in a kettle, and then poured it in a bowl. Once immersed, it took about 6½ minutes for a 4-ounce refrigerated bottle of formula to warm to about 9°F, and 7½ minutes for an 8-ounce bottle to heat to that temperature (that’s slower but still comparable with our bottle warmer picks’ heating times).
Get a string and wrap it around the bottle. Tie it to the bottle and cut off the ends.
Take off the string and soak it in acetone. Put it back on the bottle, preferably on the line that looks like a point where the glass is joined or a point where the glass starts to bend.
Cordless models are battery-powered, so your movement isn’t restricted. They’re still fairly light, but make sure you pick one that carries enough charge to allow you to complete your work. Otherwise you’ll have to stop to recharge.
A petrol trimmer gives you more power and endurance to deal with large areas and thicker grass. This is why most brush cutters are petrol powered. But they are heavier and noisier than other models and will also require more servicing.
Brush cutters are the heavy-duty cousin of grass trimmers. They use a spinning blade made from either metal or plastic to tackle thick growth and vegetation.
They’re not made for careful tasks, so they’re not ideal for tidying your lawn. Brush cutters are best for areas such as under bushes, grass verges, steep banks, around ponds or streams, or for cutting back wild grass so it doesn’t encroach on your lawn.
They are, however, perfect for tackling lawns that have become seriously overgrown. You can use a brush cutter to cut back the grass to make it more manageable for a lawnmower.
One drawback of brush cutters is that because the blade is solid and more exposed, it can be easily chipped or broken if it strikes something hard. But replacement blades are available and easy to attach.
Single or dual line
Grass trimmers come with either one or two lines. Two lines provide faster cutting, but smaller, single line trimmers are fine for trimming grass on small, tidy lawns.
The more powerful the motor, the more trimming power. Electric motor power is measured in watts, cordless battery power in volts and petrol motors in CCs.
Generally speaking, for small lawns or for light use, not much power is needed. Electric models from 250Ws – 400Ws or cordless models with 1volts and above will be suitable. But for larger lawns, with difficult areas, more force will be required.
Running time & charging
If choosing a cordless model, ensure the battery will last long enough to do all the work, and check how long it takes to recharge after.
You could be carrying your trimmer for a long time if you have lots to do. Check your choice is light enough to carry comfortably for the duration. Some heavy models and usually brush cutters, will come with a carry strap.
Many trimmers come with a guard that allows you to trim against trees, fences and other objects safely without the line coming into contact.
An adjustable head will rotate or tilt to help you to get the right cutting angle.
A model with reduced vibration will help take some of the strain and effort out of mowing.
Some trimmers can convert into an edger to give you a perfect cut across your lawn’s edges.

Time trial and triathlon bikes
Both these disciplines are all about out-and-out speed. The bikes themselves usually have a very aerodynamic shape, with elements like aerobars fitted to allow the rider to stay in a streamlined position on the bike.
Helpfully, while most brands will have women’s specific bikes in their product lines, there is no unified definition of what ‘women’s specific’ actually means.
For some brands it will mean a unisex frame with women’s specific finishing kit, which may include narrower handlebars, a women’s specific saddle, and sometimes different crank lengths or wheel sizes. Brands that take this approach include Ridley.
Other brands will design bike models specifically for women, based on body geometry information taken from different sources. These bikes will have a distinct frame geometry from unisex equivalents within the brands’ ranges, and usually a shorter reach and lower standover, in addition to the features mentioned above. Brands that take this approach include Liv, Specialized and, more recently, Canyon.
Have a look at our article on the main approaches to women’s specific design to get more detail on why and how brands opt for these different philosophies.
Some women find that women’s specific bikes really suit them, others find that unisex bikes work fine. Shorter women in particular may find that the features on women’s specific bikes — such as smaller sizes, shorter reach to brake levers, shorter cranks and in some cases even smaller wheels — result in a better fit and riding experiences.
The best advice is to take any bike you’re considering out for a test ride to see what feels best for you.
Women’s road bike features and specs
As mentioned above, some women’s specific bikes will have a unique frame geometry, and others will be based around a unisex frame with different finishing kit designed to suit women.
Handlebar size is related to shoulder width, and since women tend to have narrower shoulders than men, women’s specific bikes will usually have correspondingly narrower handlebars. They may also have brake and gear levers set up with a shorter reach, which give better comfort and control for smaller hands.
Most bikes will feature a women’s specific saddle. Often designed with a cutout, these are designed to more comfortably support female anatomy. Read our buyers guide to women’s saddles and women’s road bike saddles for the lowdown.
Disc brakes vs. rim brakes
As part of our testing for Women’s road bike of the year, we had feedback from our test team that hydraulic disc brakes gave them a lot more confidence on descents. This is because they are more powerful but with an easier lever action, which means they give controlled braking on long descents without needing a lot of pressure to control, which is also more comfortable.
Standover and sizes
Women’s specific bike ranges will usually offer smaller size options to suit the on-average smaller height range of women. If the frame geometry is women’s specific, the bikes may also have a lower standover height.
A few brands will offer a smaller wheelsize on the smallest frame sizes in its range. This means that handling and performance of the bike will feel uniform throughout the range. The new Canyon Endurance and Ultimate WMN bikes are good examples of this.
How to get a bargain bike
Looking to score a saving? You can save serious money if you don’t mind having the previous year’s model, though of course there may be limited sizes available.
Knowing the kind of glass to be cut is also crucial.
While a regular sheet of glass can be split in a jiffy with these cutters, tempered glass has a propensity to smash to smithereens instead of neatly breaking apart.
You’ll need to consider several factors before actually making the purchase.
Better yet, surf the internet for best glass cutter reviews to help you determine which brand most buyers and users find the best.
Here is a list of some glass cutter types and how they work.
We have categorized them into two; the handheld and specialty glass cutters.
Pistol grip – they’re available in various colors and brands.
Its hollow pistol-like grip can be filled with lubricant and is perfect for neophyte glass hobbyists.
It is comfortable and leaves less strain on your wrist.
Pencil grip – it features a straight shaft that’s oil-filled and easy to hold.
It can be pushed or pulled, depending on your preference.
You can hold it like a pencil or like a dagger when you make a score by pulling.
They are also available in different colors and brands.
Examples include the Toyo custom grip and Pro-Score glass cutter, along with Score One.
Glass cutter pliers – this compact and durable pair of breaking pliers has a built-in cutting wheel that will surely be your good partner at home if you’re planning some DIY home improvements that require glass cutting, or doing some glass mosaic.
Hard-anodized aluminum is today’s most commonly used metal for glass cutters.
It is resistant to constant wear and oxidization, lasts long, and is reasonably priced.
The more expensive and longer-lasting wheel cutters are made of stainless-steel and tungsten carbide.
Some work areas, like a lab, need to be free from oil contamination.
In such situations, a cutter that requires dipping its cutting wheel or head in oil is absolutely not applicable.
The diamond-tip cutter is the recommended type in this case.
You may also go for the oil-fed or self-lubricating cutter which features automatic oil dispensing system that keeps the wheel or cutting head lubricated each time you cut without messing up the workplace.
They’re work-efficient and highly resistant to corrosion.
A glass cutter may be considered as a simple machine, but operating it requires quite a lot of strength (especially the thumb and forefinger).
It can fill your hands and cause fatigue to your wrist, arm, and shoulder after tackling large volumes.
It would be best to rummage around for a cutting device that allows the arm and shoulder to apply pressure on the cutter, instead of the thumb and fingers, such as a pistol-grip and oil-fed cutting wheels.
Tea strainers resemble small sieves and are used for straining tea that has been made with loose tea leaves. Tea bag tongs are small flat tongs used for squeezing and removing teabags from your cup.
Coffee filters are used when brewing coffee. Fresh coffee grounds are placed in the filter and hot water is poured on top. The filter allows the brewed coffee to seep through whilst the grounds remain in the filter. Some filters are available for individual cups of coffee, sitting in or on top of a cup.
Stencils and Shakers
Stencils and shakers are used for creating delicate patterns on top of your coffee foam with cocoa powder. These patterns can be seasonal like snowflakes or general like leaf patterns. The shaker is a tin with a perforated lid that you put the cocoa powder in. A quick shake of the tin over the stencil will create the desired pattern.
Bottle openers come in variety of designs and methods and are used for removing corks from wine bottles and crown tops from beer bottles. Popular styles of corkscrew include the winged corkscrew and the waiter’s friend – these require some effort from the user to remove the cork. Lever openers, ‘just turn’ models and electric corkscrews require less effort but are generally more expensive to buy. Models like the waiter’s friend and winged corkscrew also incorporate a crown top opener into the design. A foil cutter is used for removing the foil that covers the tops of wine bottles. Again this is incorporated into some types of corkscrew.
Bottle coolers are available in a variety of designs. The most commonly used coolers are double walled buckets that can be chilled before use, or buckets that can contain ice. Other coolers include neoprene sleeves that act like wet suits and maintain the temperature of the bottle for as long as possible. These sleeves are great for outdoor dining like picnics and barbecues as they are compact, light and small to store and pack.
French Press Cafetiere
This type of cafetiere is best described as being a jug with a filter and a plunger. Coffee grounds are placed in the bottom of the jug and hot water is poured on top. The plunger and circular filter is placed on top of the coffee and after a few minutes of brewing, the plunger is pressed down slowly until the filter reaches the bottom. This process traps the loose coffee under the filter leaving you free to enjoy the freshly pressed coffee.
Due to wear and tear over time, the mesh filter of the cafetiere will occasionally need to be replaced. Replacement filters are available, either on their own, or as part of a three piece set that includes the upper and lower discs that the mesh sit between. The upper disc incorporates a spring coil around the edge which creates resistance when you are plunging the filter.
Pour Over Coffee Maker
These jugs are designed to hold a large amount of liquid like hot water, tea or coffee. The generous size is ideal for catering for several people at functions. The jugs will be double-walled with a vacuum in between to keep hot contents warm and cold contents cool.
These glasses, some with handles, are mostly used for espressos and coffees. The double walled space keeps the coffee hotter for longer whilst keeping the outside cool to the touch. Double walled glasses are very stylish too and look great as part of your daily coffee ritual.
Champagne glasses range from saucers to flutes and are a top attraction at any celebration. Champagne saucers are wide, shallow and curved glasses sat on the top of long tall stems, they always look great for serving to guests. Champagne saucers can be stacked to create a fountain, from the top Champagne is poured until it flows all the way down to the bottom until all the glasses are filled. A star attraction. Other Champagne glasses include flutes which are long tall and thin.
Shot glasses are just as they sound, a small cylindrical glass just about big enough for one shot. These shots are mainly associated with tequila and vodka. Shot glasses can also be used for creating chilled recipes like alcoholic jello shots or an appetiser called amuse bouche and can be a great way of serving a chilled dessert as they can be styled and served in a culinary fashion.
An electric grinder is used for grinding fresh coffee beans into a fine powder for use in a coffee filter, cafetiere or a machine. An electric grinder will use a stainless steel blade that will spin at a precise RPM to finely grid the beans into aromatic freshly ground coffee. A viewing window will allow you to determine how course or fine you want your coffee.
A manual coffee grinder is similar and sometimes referred to as a mill. The manual turn handle to grind the coffee is normally on the top, the beans will be poured in and the grinding mechanism will be operated by the handle. This allows the grade and size of ground coffee to be more controlled. The manual grinder will have a drawer or collection tray at the base called a hopper.
An Infuser is a small perforated object used for loose tea, the infuser is filled with the tea and submerged into hot water to infuse the tea flavour into the water. The design of the infuser can be a round ball, egg shaped or a novelty design such as an animal or a fish.
A water infuser is used for flavouring water with fresh fruit. A removable chamber can be filled with fruit which will infuse the water giving you naturally flavoured fruit water.
A handheld frother is used for thickening and frothing milk, it can also be used for frothing hot chocolate and coffee. The handheld frother is motorised and spins the mini frother on the end very fast to whip up the milk for the top of hot drinks or for a smooth hot chocolate.
A frothing jug is perfect for using to froth your milk in due to its wide pouring spout. This makes it easier to pour as the milk will be thick and you will have more control over this. Some frothing jugs come with their own frother as part of the lid. As the plunger is pushed manually, the attached whisk at the bottom will spin to create the froth.
The stove top kettle is used for boiling water on a hob. Traditionally this is how water was boiled for tea, coffee and even for washing before the days of the electric kettle. The kettle is filled with fresh water and placed on the stove. When the water is boiled the kettle will whistle through a steam vent or flap to indicate this. These kettles are suitable for all hobs but some may exclude induction due to the material it is made from, always check manufacturer’s recommendations.
Storage pots for tea, coffee and sugar come in a range of styles and material to fit in with the theme of your kitchen. The storage jars should have a secure and sealed lid to keep moisture out.
A tea press is similar to a coffee cafetiere in that the tea, either bags or leaves, are put inside a central filter and left to steep. The plunger is pressed to push the tea to the bottom of the filter, locking the tea away and allowing the tea to be poured. These tea presses are more commonly used for tea leaves or herbs but tea bags can also be used in the press.
A travel mug is used for carrying coffee or tea to drink on the go. These mugs are generally tall and are insulated or double walled to keep your drinks warm. The travel mug will have some form of drinking spout and many have some form of stopper to prevent spillages. Care should be taken as although travel mugs might be spill-proof they may still leak hot liquids if not kept upright.
A travel press is a cafetiere that you can use on the go. The tall insulated mug in addition to the leak proof lid and drinking spout also contains a plunger for steeping a pressing of your fresh coffee and tea. The fresh pressed drink can then be consumed straight from the mug.
A mug cafetiere is a large insulated mug with a filter and a plunger. This allows the use of fresh coffee or tea to be added to the bottom of the mug. After the water has been added and allowed time to steep, the plunger with the filter on is then pressed down and the coffee grounds or tea leaves are pressed to the bottom of the mug. The plunger itself embeds into the handle so that it is no longer visible or in the way when drinking.
Some drinkware items are designed to be stacked together, but do so with care not to scratch off any patterned or coloured areas. Delicate items like china and glass should be handled carefully and not stored with other heavy or sharp items that could damage or break them. Bulkier items should be stored separately and not stacked where they could damage other smaller delicate items.

Bottle cutting is an activity in which a person cuts a bottle using one of a variety of techniques, to create a new product. There are lots of ways to do this particular trick. You may have seen bottles cut using a bucket of ice water, a string soaked in fuel and set alight, a hot narrow gauge resistive wire, or some combination. You may even have tried all the above, and wondering if there is a more easier and quicker way to cut bottles. The answer is yes. Now, with this convenient bottle cutter, you can easily recycle your used glass bottles into reusable drinking glasses or flower vases.
This bottle cutter uses a durable and non-rust steel holder and high quality plastic body that can make sure long service life and bottle being cut neatly.
