A note about how to use it. The very top of the stem is slightly concave. When you lift the pot, you can use a finger from the other hand to hold the lid in place. This two handed action actually gives you a better controlled balance for pouring. We have a very large hand-blown Chemex which is fairly heavy all on its own -- this way of pouring really helps when the pot is fuller as I don't have to be nearly as concerned about dropping the Chemex -- it's held firmly by both hands.

If you think of it as kitchen jewelry, it sparkles, is substantially made and, like other small stuff, it can play hide-and-seek with you in a cluttered kitchen.
If you know someone who loves their Chemex and pour over coffee, it's a perfect lagniappe.

Questions & Answers
Q | Can I heat a Chemex coffeemaker on the stove?
A | Because the Chemex is glass, it should not be placed directly on the range of a stove with exposed c
oils. It may be placed on a glass covered stove range. For exposed coils utilize the Chemex wire grid.
Q | Can I put the coffeemaker on the range?
A | It is not recommended because the coffeemaker can break on direct heat. Utilize the Chemex wire grid on low heat setting. Also, if the range is a glass top model, the brewer is safe on it without a grid-low heat setting.
Can the glass go right on top of a gas burner?
