How to use the CHEMEX® Chettle
The CHEMEX® Method
Fill your Chettle
Fill your Chettle with water between the MIN and MAX fill lines.
Warning: Not keeping your water levels between the MIN and MAX lines can result in bodily harm or damage to your Chettle.
Heat your water
Place your Chettle over the center of your burner. The stainless steel Chettle is compatible with electric, gas, induction and glass stove tops.
Warning: The diameter of your electric and gas burner should ALWAYS be smaller in diameter than the Chettle bottom (6"). Do not let the flame of the gas burner spread beyond the bottom of the Chettle.
Wait for the boil
When your Chettle comes to a boil remove it from your burner.
Tip: After your water has come to a boil, remove it from the heat and let it rest for approximately 30 seconds before brewing.
Brew your favorite hot beverages
Whether it be CHEMEX® coffee or tea the Chettle gives you the pour control you need for brewing success.
