Glass is one of the equipment that is widely used in kitchen equipment and is usually used as a container or area for pouring drinks. So this time I will share some tips on how to take care of glass (glass) so that it doesn’t crack or break easily when poured with hot water. Often glass glass will crack or break easily when hot water is poured, this is due to the sudden hot temperature received by the glass so that the glass will be easily damaged, this is marked by a crack or break.
Glass is an equipment that cannot be separated from eating and drinking activities. Usually people eat using plates and drink using glasses. In its use, glass is sometimes used for hot water, sometimes for cold water. Well, if you’ve ever experienced cracked or broken glass and the same thing didn’t happen a second time, read the following tips:
Glass does not break & crack when hot water is poured
Research before buying
This is true, not all glass glass has a sweet quality both in terms of the material used and the manufacturing process. Look, if there are scratches, or cracks that have occurred / formed in the glass, don’t buy it because, any cracks will cause the glass to break quickly. Touch the surface of the glass. Smooth or rough, thick or thin? Sweet glass (strength) is a glass that is smooth, flat, and thick.
When buying a new glass, don’t use it directly
Glass that has just been bought or is still new is often easy to crack or break easily when used for the first time when hot water is poured. Tips so that the glass glass is not easy to crack or break, so before using it, boil the glass first into the pot then add water until the entire surface of the glass is submerged in water, boil the glass for one to two hours then let it cool down by itself, the purpose of boiling is so that our glass adjust to hot temperatures, for the second method is quite effective, based on my experience boiled glasses will not break when poured with hot water.
Pouring hot water in a glass
Silver/metal spoons are good conductors of heat, while glass is a poor conductor of heat. When hot water hits the glass, the glass “flows” heat unevenly across its surface, and this non-uniform “expansion” causes the glass to crack and break. For thick glasses, the process takes longer, but the same thing will happen if you continue to pour boiling water over it. now you can try these tips so that the glass is not easy to crack or break, namely by pouring hot water through a spoon that has been inserted into the glass (not directly into the glass) that means hot water flows through the spoon before the glass goes straight.
Another way is if you like coffee, tea or sugar, then pour the hot water in the glass without hitting the side of the glass, the ingredients will stimulate heat before hitting the glass, so the glass is not “surprised” by the sudden hot temperature of the water. too hot.
